    3.0 out of 5 stars 1857 versus 2009 June 10, 2009
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    The Atlantic Monthly was founded primarily as a "literary and culture commentary magazine" for and by local authors such as Harriet Beecher Stowe, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., John Greenleaf Whitter, and James Russell Lowell back in 1857. On February 1, 1862, The Atlantic Monthly was the first to publish Julia Ward Howe's BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC. Until recently the magazine was known mainly as a "New England literary magazine". The Atlantic too has shrugged off its roots, no longer publishing much fiction beyond a summer special. Things have greatly changed between 1857 and 2009.

    I started reading The Atlantic Monthly, or The Atlantic, as they now call it, back in 1963 while serving in the military. Read it all the way through college into the 70s and 80s, etc. While I go back to Elizabeth Drew, Ward Just, James Fallows, Edward Weeks, and who can forget Phoebe Lou Adams, among others, I find today's magazine worthwhile if for no other reason than the book reviews and writer profiles that frequently occur.

    As with most magazines of today, The Atlantic Monthly is no better, no worse than most, though much less than it was once. Though it is more colorful than in prior years, it still has a lack luster to it. And the logo, The Atlantic, now in use while new to many readers, is the way the logo appeared back in the 1940s and 1950s. Sometimes I think the high money-bright idea people at the magazine are too clever for their shirts, I mean positions. I really mark The Atlantic's decline from the mid-1970s, various and sundry ailments from which it has never bounced back.

    I assume the magazine has changed hands at least once, no longer coming from Boston but from Washington, D.C.

    2.0 out of 5 stars What went wrong? - June 24, 2013
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    This review is of the hardcopy mail subscription of the ATLANTIC. A couple of years ago I let my subscription drop in favor of HARPER'S. Then last fall I bought an issue at the newsstand that had a fascinating lead article about the NCAA's effect on college sports, and I decided to re-subscribe. What a mistake! Here is a sample of articles from recent issues: "We Will Never Run Out of Oil." "The Genius of Henry Kissinger." "How to Tell a Joke on the Internet." "What Straights Can Learn from Same-Sex Couples" ("Among married straight couples with kids, 32 percent have only one parent in the labor force, versus 33 percent of gay-male couples with kids.") What that extra one percent has to signify is beyond me. "How Long Can a Woman Wait to Have a Baby?" "The Cure for Obesity (How Science is Engineering Healthy Junk Food.)" "The Most Influential Shows in TV History." Gone are Barbara Wallraff's word columns and the long investigative features that previously made ATLANTIC not only informative but a joy to read; in are a preponderance of happy-face puff pieces that answer questions no one seems to be asking, or have already been answered adequately several times a day online. While not everything in the magazine is this relentlessly fluffy, I'm letting my subscription lapse. I can save the twenty or thirty dollars and pull this kind of inanity off the Internet or by reading PARADE magazine, which comes for free with the Sunday newspaper.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Revised review from 5/8/10 November 30, 2008
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    In the interest of fairness, I revised this review on May of 2010 to reflect the state of 'The Atlantic Monthly' of that time, and moved my original review to the comments section. Since my initial subscription and review of 'The Atlantic', the magazine has gone through some format changes, nearly all of which seem positive to me. For comparison, I read the last two issues of 2009 from cover to cover, and instead of having to force myself to finish, each kept my interest until the end.

    Previously, the initial section of the magazine was called 'The Agenda', and it was a collection of short (sometimes only a few paragraphs) news items, included mostly for their ironic, unusual or surprising values. Also in 'The Agenda' were a few articles of a page or two, but the result was a scattering of unrelated material that haphazardly placed serious journalism next to micro-attention grabbers. The new format replaced 'The Agenda' (which seems like a terrible name anyway) with 'Dispatches' - a half a dozen or so equal length articles that concentrate more on the unusual story-behind-a-story. This is light and requires no heavy lifting yet is also entertaining. A vast improvement.

    I didn't notice much change in the features format - usually five investigative journalism pieces - other than the fact that I found them more interesting than before. This could have a lot to do with a concentration on subjects that readers of 'The Atlantic' might expect, and leaving Brittany Spears to 'People'.

    Lastly, I thought the changes to the book review section and the 'Cover-to-Cover' column to be huge improvements. Instead of trying to cover too many things at once, they wisely (I feel) decided to go with fewer subjects, but more depth.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Great magazine gone bad August 14, 2008
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    I began subscribing to the Atlantic around the time of start of the war in Afghanistan, and was an ardent fan. I loved the reporting by James Fallows and Mark Bowden, Mark Steyn's obits, and Christopher Hitchens' erratic but occasionally terrific stuff. It was literary, combative, intelligent, centrist but never doctrinaire. But after a few years I noticed a worrying development. Stories kept cropping up that I suppose were meant to attract a young female readership. They were about boring subjects like healthcare and organic food. There was an editorial slant that was indistinguishable from the NYT or Slate. They ran a cover story about the shortage of good nannies and later an adulatory profile of Barack Obama. Steyn disappeared. The month I cancelled my subscription, Britney Spears was on the cover. I read later that the magazine was taken over by a new publisher around the time it went bad, and it had a callow young editor who was on a drive to raise circulation. Rather than screwing up the content of the magazine, they should have fixed their subscription department. At one stage I had four subscriptions going-- 3 of them gifts to friends, because I was such a fan. When I started a subscription or changed my address, it would take 5 or 6 months for the changes to be carried out. Even responding to my enquiries took weeks. -- A young female reader.
