The Best Thing About This Book Is The Title
on May 6, 2015
Jon Ronson is a talented writer and a gifted storyteller. He has done some worthwhile reporting, enough for a really interesting magazine article. Then he pads it with unused material from old notebooks, chirpy (not witty, just chirpy) observations about the subject, types until his manuscript is about 200 pages long, and calls it a book. It's not a book. It's a hotdog. A lot of filler, barely any meat.
