"Tough Sh*t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good" by Kevin Smith

Proof that I will read just about anything.  Prior to meeting my boyfriend, I had not even hear of Kevin Smith.  Now, I have seen almost all of his movies.  And surprisingly have enjoyed everything that I have viewed.  Because of this, I was very interested when I came across a copy of Tough Sh*t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good.  Thanks to Netflix I have seen a couple of his recorded Q&As so I didn't get a whole lot of new information out of this book.  A good chunk of the stories were ones that I had already heard, but that was okay.  I still enjoyed this read.

One would not expect that I would be interested in anything created by Smith.  If you take a look at my DVD collection, you will quickly notice that the majority of what I own is aimed at kids.  I own a lot of Disney movies.  So even I was surprised the first time I watched Clerks and liked it quite a bit.  I have since made it a personal goal to watch all of Smith's movies (I keep waiting to be in the right mood to give Red State a try).

I realize that this is certainly not a book for everyone.  The events and descriptions in this book are in no way censored.  It's likely that the review of a memoir isn't likely to persuade readers to pick up or avoid a certain title.  I don't think I have ever picked up a memoir unless I have been particularly interested in either the person or the subject matter.  But you never know.  If you are a fan of Smith's movies, comics, or podcast, then give this book a shot!

Happy Reading!

  1. I can't believe that you had never heard of Kevin Smith before this...I feel that I severely neglected your pop culture education.
