Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs is ostensibly about movies, sports, television, music, books, video games, and kittens but, really, it's about us. All of us. As Klosterman realizes late at night, in the moment before he falls asleep, "In and of itself, nothing really matters. What matters is that nothing is ever 'in and of itself.'"

hit and miss<br />
Some funny parts but a lot of very US specific references that i didnt get. LA lakers and Boston Celtics as essential American archetypes or representative of deep divisions in US society. TV series saved by the bell...
Tends to go off on rambling diatribes based on long gone pop culture seeking deeper meanings and messages. sometimes works but more often I was left failing to see the point.
Its nice the author reads the book as you get a feel for him and hes quite self-critical which helps puncture some if his more overblown attempts at extracting the meaning of life from low culture.
Overall a good book for holiday reading or WC literature.
