5.0 étoiles sur 5 Awesmeness 13 juillet 2011
Par JP Zazarra - Publié sur
I laughed, I cried, I shotgunned a Coores, and then dominated at a beer pong tournament. This is the greatest advancement in bro literature I have seen since Ernest Hemingway, the ultimate bro, wrote that book about fishing.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Why should Bennington girls get to write all the crappy poems? 25 juillet 2011
Par Thomas E. Bassett - Publié sur
There's lot of mediocre poetry out there about the many, many things McGackin's intended readers aren't interested in. So it's only fair, I say, that they also get a collection of just plain bad poems that speaks to them, finally, about things they *do* care about--chicken wings, Thursday night drinking, and hooking up with freshman girls. McGackin has struck a blow for equality in another way as well: Isn't it time that straight young males have a voice of some kind in today's America?
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Great Gift 12 juin 2013

This is the perfect gift for a guy in your life. It's simple but funny - and appropriately priced. I couldn't resist giving it a read-through myself before I wrapped it for my friend. My friend loved it - he actually took the time to read it (shock, I know). And it's been sitting on his bookshelf ever since.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Poetry That's the Tasteless and Misogynistic 25 juillet 2011
Par Ironmaus - Publié sur
Everyone should find entertainment that they can relate to, and there's nothing wrong with trying to make an art form accessible to new audiences. I won't go near opera that doesn't promise huge production values because the music alone can't keep me in my seat. But this is awful.

When I heard about Broetry, I assumed that it was a subtle reinterpretation of classic poems, perhaps a set of notes on juxtaposing pages with the original works, intended to make transparent the meanings for an audience that wouldn't otherwise care or take the time to understand. This book is no such thing. Instead, it is a collection of thoughts the author attributes to the bro attitude, crammed into the framework of great poems. And the bro attitude here is one of apathy, media obsession, and sexual coercion. The characters in these works--I can only hope they are not modeled on real people--shirk their responsibilities, don't care about education, live from drink to drink, speak through a collection of profanities and text-message shortenings, and regularly reduce women to objects to be f***ed and forgotten.

Flip through the preview here on Amazon and you'll find language that is plain and unrhythmic. It rhymes when the original work demands it but never creatively or with much effect. Sex, alcohol, and the pursuit of a good time are presented as blandly as possible, and often with total disregard for others. A post-coital man thinking about his surroundings, including the affectionate young woman at his side, concludes "Never date a Freshman." There's a three page poem that is nothing but movie titles strung together to tell a coming of age tale...or possibly to convince the audience that the author is hip to the culture he's addressing. A young man imagines himself on Jeopardy, flippantly answering questions about how "psycho" his exes are and which national monuments he's puked on. One is about a bro who reads the Harry Potter series exclusively to sleep with a woman who adores Rowling's world.

In that poem alone we can see the flaw in this work: either the author has the lowest possible opinion of his target audience or my initial statement is wrong, and Broetry accurately addresses an audience so dispassionate about culture and with such disregard for other people that they don't deserve to have art made for them at all.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 I feel dumber for having read Broetry 10 août 2011
Par DK-- - Publié sur
With all the 5 star reviews I felt Broetry might at least be funny. It isn't. Take this excerpt from the back cover.

I go to drink beer,
lots of beer,
and I go to eat
chicken fingers,
and most likely
mozzarella sticks,
and maybe wings
if someone else
orders wings;
I go to spend money;
it is Sunday
it is fall,
it is football

--excerpt from "Impact"

That is the "quality" of this book.

And a note on all the 5 star reviews. Notice how most are from July 13th or 14th? I bet those immediate 5 star reviews are from the author's friends trying to boost the rating of this book. Many of whom seem to be from Los Angeles / USC / Emerson , places the author lives or studied at.

So judge the book for yourself based on the excerpt above, not the suspect 5 star reviews.
