1.5

Title: Starf*cker: a Meme-oir
Author Name & Publisher: Matthew Rettenmund (Lethe Press)
Publication Date & Length: October 18, 2015 – 308 pgs

Synopsis

What is a starf*cker? However you define it, Matthew Rettenmund, author of the acclaimed novel Boy Culture and the popular blog BoyCulture.com, readily admits to being one. The ultimate pop-culture enthusiast, he has been obsessed with celebrities ever since he was born. This hilarious, sexy memoir (arranged by memes) documents Rettenmund’s affection-in the case of Madonna, it’s pure mania-for movie, television, and music personalities. From his years as a star-obsessed gayby to his contradictory careers in porn and as a teen-mag editor (names will be named), Rettenmund details and deconstructs his-and our-passion for celebrity.

Review

ThreeStar

First I have to say, I can’t approve of the name of this book or the cover. I think there could’ve been many other interesting and attention grabbing titles and images. However, that’s a personal opinion and I still picked up the book anyway, didn’t I?
There are some incredibly hilarious moments in this book and some really interesting stories told.
However, overall, I felt like everything was dragged out too much while also being all over the place. I couldn’t keep track of what was going on and why it was even included in the book at times.
I suppose that with a title like this one had, it would be more focused on stars and how they impacted the author or his experiences in meeting them, however, it felt more like that was all a side note to other stories being told.
