I hate the Internet

I Hate the InternetI Hate the Internet by Jarett Kobek
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

To me it is a book which rides a bit on wave. Compared to the overall internet hype in the book. Yes – it is absolutely and brutally honest. It smashes directly into the face. It is finger pointing to millennials gives a warning as well what could happen in times of fake news and alternative facts. But it is not reading which makes fun. It is disruptive in using short chapters and clipped words. It repeats the same joke about eumelanin over and over as a technique which is after chapter 20 getting boring. It is an evil book which does not stop before Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, the Bush family, Twitter, you tube, google or instagram. If you like evil books, you should read it. I think the book must have been brilliant if the author would have known, that Trump will be the next president. I would love to read his comment on this.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Having moved to Ireland I wanted to get some background knowledge about the history, landscape and people. This book takes you on a journey along the Shannon from the Cuilagh mountains down to Limerick telling you interesting storys about Brian Boru or a lady named Grace O´Malley being a pirate and leader of 20 ships and 6000 men against the Normans. It is not a boring travel guide – it is book with lovely anecdotes.
