    One thought on “Hilarity Ensues”

    1. Either you love Tucker Max or you hate him. I loved his first book, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell; I recommended it to everyone I knew with a sense of humor. His second installment, Assholes Finish First, wasn't as good. I still read it, I still laughed at it, I still enjoyed it overall. That book seemed more like he was bragging, even cockier than in his first book, and it was tiresome. As for book number three, the tamer title gives the right impression. Tucker is all grown up. His writing ha [...]

    2. The book was funny and I did laugh a lot, especially reading the first half. But the book it's not an easy read, that's why I put it on my not-for-the-weak-hearted shelf. There is a lot of insults towards pretty much everyone. If you can't take a joke and will take it to heart, you might think the world is an awful place to live in, because there are people like Tucker Max roaming it freely, and then you will need some therapy :). The dude is every father's and mother's worse nightmare. Or at le [...]

    3. The title of the book is a bit misleading. Hilarity Ensues eh. I admit, I had a few really solid laughs. Mostly at the way Tucker Max phrases things. The stories aren't nearly as encapsulating as they were in I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, but the updated story about Miss Vermont is worth the price on the back cover though.Let's be honest. How this douchecanoe continues to get laid is one of the great mysteries of our time. I subscribe to some of his tactics (that doesn't mean I employ them) pr [...]

    4. The fact that this guy is on the NY Times bestsellers list is appalling. He literally writes about nothing. In this book he has run out of all the "good" stories (like some of the ones in his first book) and manages to scrape together a book of non-events and retellings of stories that have already been published. He also attempts to have some "deep thoughts" in this book, which is something he should not ever do.

    5. I honestly got the impression from this book that he struggled while writing it, and I think he acknowledges that to some degree. Many of these stories are from several years ago and I got the distinct impression that he's not the same person anymore. Case in point: during one story he mentions how he would raise a daughter. He also seemed slightly surprised to not be married or engaged yet at the end. I know there's a lot I should hate about this book/author/genre, and I'll admit there are quit [...]

    6. Me: So what did you do with all the money, Tucker?Tucker: Well, I bought some speakers for my range rover, a bunch of kombucha, and started psychoanalysis.Me: Cool, cool. Anything else?Tucker: I also got a bunch of Chick-Fil-A on a Sunday when I was hungover.Me: BULLSHIT YOU DID.Tucker: I'm serious. When you are Tucker Max, Chick-Fil-A will sell you chicken sandwiches on a Sunday.Me: Damn, that must be the best part about being Tucker Max.Tucker: Definitely. I mean, except for all the times I ge [...]

    7. Seriously disappointed. Maybe I've matured, maybe his last set of stories just aren't as funny. I remember reading IHTSBIH and seriously laughing throughout. To the point where I was wondering what my co-workers were thinking as I shook on the smoking area bench. This one was a maybe 3 or 4 time laughing out loud book.

    8. Oddly enough, I think the third book of this Tucker Max trilogy is my favorite! While the first book ("I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell") has my all-time favorite story (which is him running through a Best Western Hotel lobby, crapping himself) and was my introduction to the Tucker Max phenomenon, this one had more self-awareness than ever, and a poignant ending. (Surprisingly.)SlingBlade was funnier than ever in these stories. In fact, this is the first of Tucker's books where I felt like I got t [...]

    9. Not much different than "I Hope they Serve Beer in Hell" and "Assholes Finish First", so you can refer to those reviews as well to get an understanding of this book. Tucker pretty much continues to write hilarious stories of him and his friends drunken debauchery and the stupid whores that he bangs. The book is mostly short stories (except for the Dangerous Catch story; I enjoyed this one since I watch the show but Emily felt that it was too long and since she doesn't watch the show didn't enjoy [...]

    10. I know there are varied opinions of Tucker Max, but as a librarian with varied interests in literature, I have to say - he's worth it. You experience the evolution of Max as a writer - and a man - in Hilarity Ensues. Like other reviewers have mentioned, he gets back to some of the more comedic instances involving his friends. I have to say, the "Hate" stories absolutely had me in stitches. He's funny, clever, and honest - just do yourself a favor and read it.

    11. Basically what I expected from Tucker Max, no more, no less. Some of the stories were really funny, while others just kind of made me shake my head and groan. It must have been a fun time collecting all these stories, but at the same time I'm not surprised at Max's epilogue and essentially his retirement from his 20's.The one thing I wasn't really a fan of was his over-the-top arrogance in his stories. The other two opened with some kind of preface about who he is and what he does, this one just [...]

    12. Not quite as good as the original book, but far funnier than book two. Tucker Max gives us one final collection of hilarious drunken/sexual escapades that is definitely worth the time. Much like the first book, I often found myself laughing out loud in very public places at the ridiculousness, which turned several a head. Not too many books can accomplish that. Not with me, anyway. You may not like him, you may find his content to be childish or inappropriate, but you have to at least give him c [...]

    13. If I could give it 3 1/2 stars I would. This is the third in the series and it shows. Tucker Max seems to have run out of the sort of stories that made the first two books great. This isn't really surprising and I kind of expected it. That being said, this is still a very funny book. My favorite part was hearing the whole back story on MissVermont, the woman who sued Max. I'd recommend this to anyone who read the first two books, but would recommend IHTSBIH before this any day of the week.

    14. Fifty pages on hanging out with the cast of "Deadliest Catch," eh? Pretty ironic way to jump the shark. The "Sexting" chapters were a pretty funny new feature, and "The Miss Vermont Story" was interesting (especially to find out she was a coach on an episode of MTV's "Made" that I've seen), but other than those there are only so many different ways to brag about how awesome it was this time you got drunk and called a girl a fat ugly bitch (again) before it loses its charm.

    15. Tucker Max says himself that he's an asshole. And he is.But somehow, as unpolitically correct as it ishe makes me laugh, or shake my head or mutter to myself about what a pig he is.His stories of his drunken debauchery are amusingrt of like a car wreck. You don't want to be in one, but you can't look away either.This one was less shocking than They Serve Beer in Hell but still not for the faint hearted.

    16. You can definitely tell that he's running out of things to talk about in this book but it was still entertaining. It's probably good that this is his last book of this genre. I think that I liked the text messages the most and there were a few good lines that definitely made me laugh.

    17. An almost melancholy end to an era. Less funny than his previous endeavors, but still worth a few hearty laughs, Hilarity Ensues calmly and rationally ends the way it should. Tucker Max shows his growth and depth as a human being going through life. Well-written.

    18. So disgusting I couldn't even finish the preview. Don't know what is more pathetic; his lifestyle or the women who go with him. I think he's totally wrong on the title. It should be: Male Whore - Major Fail - author, Misogynist.

    19. I didn't really finish it. Too hard to get through knowing what kind of a person the author is. The escapades of this author gets less funny and more annoying as you continue through the book.

    20. This one, contrary to The Leftovers, was not old. It was probably the best book of the three, and although maybe it didn’t have the most ridiculous stories, it had the most of Tucker's real self in it I think. He lives his life in a selfishly admirable way; everything he does is for his own enjoyment, and he has a shitton of fun. He does stuff that I would never be able to do because of fear. And his lifestyle obviously wasn’t sustainable, nor was it healthy, but he knew those things in the [...]

    21. Not as good as the first one, and it appears as though he's trying too hard now. It's all about his schtick and being vile solely to have material for his book.

    22. BS that is somewhat entertaining. I assume that a lot of stuff he claims never happened or was greatly exaggerated.

    23. If you have read any of Tucker Max's previous books, this is more of the same.Max is a guy who makes no apologies about who he is, and lived up his youth to the fullest. This book has some great stories (including a trip to Alaska to be on "The Deadliest Catch"), and some of the hilarious sexting messages he received after his works made him famous. If you liked the others, you will like this. If not, skip it.

    24. Tucker Max returns with his third--and final--book in his fratire trilogy. This chapterhouse finds Max illuminating more sordid tales from his drinking/sexing/carousing ways. As in his previous two books, what makes them amusing is the humor he brings to the table in spinning yarns that are, at least on the surface level, crass and base. I found this book to be a far better read than his previous, "Assholes Finish First," as the stories were crisper and his observations more to the point. There [...]

    25. Reading through Tucker Max's trilogy was a useful learning experience for me. he certainly can tell a story, and he certainly polishes this. I know I have gotten a lot of good advice from his website, whether it be on writing technique, taking the time to write, or even on good books to read.But unfortunately, clever writing only goes so far to cover the, for such a smart person, you sure took a long time to learn stuff I had figured out near the end of the first book. Maybe he actually realize [...]

    26. Hilarity Ensues is the final book written by Tucker Max in his trilogy of debauchery. This book (or his other two) are not for the light-hearted; Max finds himself in quite a few situations that often ends in him getting hammered, meeting a girl(or two, in one specific instance), and having sex with them. Max details his experiences with such an indifferent attitude that it's hard to ever feel sorry for him. The books generally focuses on three parts: leaving law school in the middle of the seme [...]

    27. He should have stopped when he wrote the first book. At least then, the readers were surprised enough to give the book more than a couple of stars because they were still in shock over his debauchery and downright lack of respect for other humans. They were in shock that someone could be such a huge JERK and be proud enough of his 'achievements' that he wrote about them in a book. I'll be honest, I'm really embarrassed and disappointed in myself that I bought the book and lined his pockets with [...]

    28. Okay, I have to be fairI think all the Tucker Max books received a four or five star rating from me. He's such a complete ass, but he makes no qualms about this simple fact, and frankly most of the people in the situations in which he ends up sound like they deserve his abuse, and hey, why not enjoy the denigration via witty, merciless verbal beatdowns from none other than Tucker Max? Heck, I sure enjoyed it. This book is considered his swan song to his self-created "fratire" genre, and I couldn [...]
