THE AVERAGE AMERICAN MARRIAGE by Chad Kultgen | Kirkus Reviews

My only negative thought: Chad’s next endeavor found him selling his first TV show to VH1. Chad is actually a friend of mine so I read all his books. I believe the site is averagee a bane to cohabitation because of this — there are millions of other women who one can get easy contact with, if chaad should feel just the same as the character.

While I absolutely loathed the husband, his thoughts and candid pervertedness was so accurate and appalling, I felt like I could see through his soul. It was good, very good.

You would think this marirage, deadpan, distanced, nuanced, oversexed style would be difficult for Chad to maintain for all of his books, but you’d be wrong – this is just as entertaining as its predecessor and the rest of Chad’s catalog. This one was oddly touching-and-depressing-at-the-same-time in an American Beauty sort of way that I liked.

I just loved the dirty man humor. Anyway, it’s a good book, fucking hilarious, and the humor goes hand in expert hand with the acidic critique of the modern american life. Will things end badly?

Luckily I have the sense of humor of an 18 year old frat boy so this isn’t an issue. The plot line for the most part is exactly in line with averwge characters and I was happy about that.

Most people, especially after some of Kultgen’s previous works, may accuse him of misogyny or, at the very least, favoring the males of his cast over the females. You are plugg A brutally honest portrayal of the vapid and conflicted lives of unsuccesfuly married American and Canadian men. He gives us an honest and brutal view of what life could become if we let it.

Insightful here and there, but mostly predictable as hell. I can see the humor, the honesty, and the worthiness of this author.

This may be a tactic the author planned as the main character has grown older and has gotten married, but it also dampened the spirit of the book a bit.
