Book #10: Hilarity Ensues

Title: Hilarity Ensues (According to the dust cover, apparently this is being called the third in final book in a trilogy of Tucker's books, including "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell" and "Assholes Finish First." This is the first time I've ever heard of them being called a trilogy.")

Author: Tucker Max

Date started reading: Feb. 05, 2013
Date finished reading: ------

Publish date: February 2012
ISBN: 978-1451669039
Number of pages: 448

Official summary: "Tucker Max’s third and final book in his series of stories about his drunken debauchery and ridiculous antics. What began as a simple sentence on an obscure website, 'My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole,' and developed into two infamously genre-defining books, I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell and Assholes Finish First, ends here. But as you should expect from Tucker by now, he is going out with a bang — literally and figuratively. In this book, you’ll learn:
  • How to live and work in Cancun, while still enrolled in Law School, 
  • Why Halloween is really awesome, 
  • How to subtly torture a highstrung roommate until he explodes with furious anger over a misplaced condiment, 
  • What really happened when a dirty pageant girl tried to sue Tucker because he told the truth, 
  • Why you should never accept a homemade treat from a hippie with a van, and 
  • What happens when Tucker turns sexting into a sport. 
He’s still Tucker Max, and — for one more book — he’s still an asshole." (

How I obtained the book: Got as a Christmas present

My commentary:
  • I decided I needed a little break from all the emotional books I've been reading so far this year, so I picked this one up off my shelf. I'll be back to my normally scheduled emotion-inducing-supernatural books soon. 
  • I'm so glad Tucker's website has a bunch of his books' best lines, so I don't have to type up everything I want to quote. I can just copy and paste some of them. It makes this a lot easier.
  • I normally am supportive of what Tucker does/say because of the freedom of speech and the fact that I think he's awesome, but in this book, he goes on and on about the girl who had sued him. He wanted to tell his side of the story since he won the case and could finally tell his side, but dear God, he goes on and on and on for 82 pages about it. There's telling your story and then there's telling it and then being immature and vindictive.
