My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole. I get excessively drunk at inappropriate times, disregard social norms, indulge every whim, ignore the consequences of my actions, mock idiots and posers, sleep with more women than is safe or reasonable, and just generally act like a raging dickhead. But, I do contribute to humanity in one very important way: I share my adventures with the world.
--from the Introduction



Actual reader feedback:




"I am completely baffled as to how you can congratulate yourself for being a womanizer and a raging drunk, or think anyone cares about an idiot like you. Do you really think that exploiting the insecurities of others while getting wasted is a legitimate thing to offer?"




"Thank you, thank you, thank you--for sharing with us your wonderful tales of drunken revelry, for teaching me what it means to be a man, for just existing so I know that there is another option; I too can say 'screw the system' and be myself and have fun. My life truly began when I finished reading your stories. Now, when faced with a quandary about what course of action I should take, I just ask myself, 'What Would Tucker Do?'--and I do it, and I am a better man for it."




"I find it truly appalling that there are people in the world like you. You are a disgusting, vile, repulsive, repugnant, foul creature. Because of you, I don't believe in God anymore. No just God would allow someone like you to exist."




"I'll stay with God as my lord, but you are my savior. I just finished reading your brilliant stories, and I laughed so hard I almost vomited. I want to bring that kind of joy to people. You're an artist of the highest order and a true humanitarian to boot. I'm in both shock and awe at how much I want to be you."




"You are the coolest person I can even imagine existing. If you slept with my girlfriend, it'd make me love her more."

Oh jesus, where to begin. I feel like book deals are wasted on people like this - for every Twilight, Fifty Shades of Grey, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell that gets published, you know there are at least ten amazingly fantastic books being passed over. It's my fault for picking a book with a title like this, but oh lord. There is a "literary" way to write like a misogynistic asshole ( hello Hemingway ) and this is not it. No thank you.more
Rated 1 star for humor, because there is nothing humorous here. Lots of stories about drinking and sex, but not even interesting in the way that Bukowski is, say. Bumbling, inarticulate. I know these types of people only too well - I do not need to read about their 'adventures' here as well. These types of people baffle me. I admit it freely. What are they going to do with their lives?more
This'll teach me not to buy a book based on title alone. The blurb on the back begins like this: "My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole."Glad he is aware of that. Somehow that doesn't make it better.more
If there really is a Hell down? there, those fated to that destination will have this book to read, over and over again. Seriously. How can I describe this thing? Honestly, in one sentence, it's the escapades of a guy in his early 20s. Big deal. That's it. Only this guy happens to be an alcoholic womanizer with money to burn and a posse like-minded friends to have tag along. The book is nothing more than a series of drunk-to-excess adventures hooking up with ditzy, drunk, trashy women. Sex described in minute detail. Reading it is like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, only each story gets progressively worse and worse. Every misadventure is more and more exaggerated until you start to question the author's grip on reality. Drink to the point of puking. Have outrageous sex with big chested blondes. Repeat. The most stupefying thing about this book is that not only was it born out of conquest-written blogs, but it was so popular that it was made into a movie. People love it (the blog, the book, the movie). Women (supposedly) throw themselves at Tucker and his crew at every chance they get. The more vile he is the more people adore him. His biggest dilemma used to be 'which woman do I fukc?' until he realized it didn't matter. Both would have him. I admit, there were parts of the book I giggled about. There were certain lines I had to reread because they were funny. Tucker does have a sense of humor. But, he can't write. I spent more time cringing at the grammatical errors and implausible situations than anything else. Then, there is that repetition I mentioned before. I ended up skimming or even completely skipping parts if I thought they sounded too familiar (which ended up being half the book). The best thing about I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell is that I will be selling it back to the bookstore and getting my money back.more

While Tucker Max's exploits are on the reprehensible side, he has a gift for telling a story and I actually ended up finishing this book in a single evening. If you enjoy reading stories in more of an "outside looking in" kind of situation, it's definitely not a bad read.more
Guy humor at it's best and, well, worst. Hilarious at times, but don't be fooled, this guy is an ass. Don't expect redemption (the last story made me sick), just go with it and you'll enjoy a few laughs.more
