Review: Truth in Advertising
Truth in Advertising by John Kenney
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Alternates between biting sarcastic humour about the vacuousness of advertising, consumerism and social detachment; and touching passages about grief, loss, and finding love. Liked the touching passages better than the biting humour, but I wonder if the contrast between the two made them that much sweeter. Not my usual read, and a bit of a slog for where I am in my reading right now (that is, staring down a pile of books that just aren't getting me jazzed), but a good book nonetheless.
