    I still think a lot of Tucker Max's stories, although based on true events, are greatly exaggerated.

What he does is very prickish but if I girl gets drunk and decides to have sex with him I would not call that him propagating the rape culture.
      Imbibing a girl until she's unable to actually consent.
      Is that or is that not rape?

      Is that what he does?
      Yes.

      BUT WAIT! THERES MORE.

      The entire concept of him trying to edge and skirt the line of 'what consent really is' is disgusting. He's a ******* lawyer. He's enjoying his time ******* people over for calling him what he really is. Some dude who inches closer and closer to what is really rape.

      The objectification he makes of women not as people (*COUGH LIKE MYSELF*) but as just orifices regardless of consequence (and rules that he can bend), is sicking, revolting, and awful. his perception of women, i believe is shared, and enjoyed by many, many people. and i cannot stand by and say, i enjoy being called a *****, a ****, or a ***** by men. and yet, this is what he espouses. once you break it into mens mind that women 'are' said things, the next step is easy.

      "88 percent of men who reported an assault that met the legal definition of rape were adamant that they had not raped." (some university of texas study)

      The subconsciousness of what men perceive to be rape, and what it is legally, are two VERY separate instances.

      Of course, anyone who speaks up is a dumb fat ******* feminist anyway to him as bad as rapists anyway for calling him one. The entire **** is just ridiculous. And this isn't really the proper forum. But if you for one second think that anything in that book is remotely close to 'man, that's totally cool'. you are so ******* full of fail. exaggerated or not, the line is there, and a bunch of ******** men are going to cross it, rape innocent women, and not go to jail.

      I will cave and say, yeah, it's freedom of speech. Doesn't make him any less of a douchebag than white supremacist. Wait. His fans are racist too?

            i'd like to think, on my list of top mccarthy books, that'd be number two or three. (with one being all the pretty horses and two being suttree. this is right there with suttree imo)

            Funny that most of his books get put into movies. Could just be the way he writes.

              I don't buy that much of what he says is true. I think it's about 95% ********.

                This thread is being littered with non-sense spat out by Tucker Max. I'd agree with Brent about the only things being true are names for the most part and places if that.

                I'm not much of a reader but my friend recommended Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell.

                      I think someone that "claims" to be a douche bag, is a douche bag because he's trying to be a douche bag.

                        Well I already that conclusion....but I want to see whats in the middle like all the meat.

                        I've come to the conclusion that, everythings been done, beginnings and endings are predictable for the most part....what sets books and movies too apart from eac other is what is inbetween the beginning and end.

                          This is awesome.


                          As is Brodeck's Report.


                          And, of course, this :



                          Also, if you can somehow get a hand on it, "Provincetown Playhouse, july 1919" is possibly the best play I've ever read.

                          Note that if you understand french you're probably better off reading the play and the first two novels in their original version.

                              I loved Brave New World. Didn't read it for a class though. As much as I love 1984, it's a better book.
