Drunk Drinking: A book review

One thing I love about the internet is the openness and candor that some people exhibit when sharing their
stories with others. Some people take a no-holds barred approach and share every gory, shocking and embarrassing detail with their readers. I have recently taken this approach with newest blog and my readers seem to eat it up. My youngest and least populated blog is my most popular and I believe a lot of that is due to the fact that I bare my soul to my readers whenever I share a personal post on it. Not only do I enjoy writing in such a personal way, I enjoy reading it, as well. When I stumbled across Drunk Drinking on Amazon, I knew it was the kind of book I would enjoy reading.

Drunk Drinking , by Aaron Goldfarb, is a collection of autobiographical tales of a young man’s adventures in drinking. Most of the compositions included in this book were previously published on his website, The Vice Blog, but that doesn’t make this collection of tales any less entertaining! In fact, I hope that his website has additional stories to tell that weren’t included in the book.

Aaron shares stories of how his drinking “career” started, his relationship with a pseudo-celebrity, how he embraced his geekiness when he attended a special beer release party and many more tales of drunken debauchery. If you read a little deeper than just the mere words Aaron writes, you will find some heartfelt stories of friendship peppered with some sage advice.

Goldfarb’s writing is as easy to read as drinking a cold beer on a hot summer evening-it begs you to dive right in and enjoy yourself. And enjoy myself I did! I found myself laughing out loud on numerous occasions as I delved deeper and deeper in this book. A few times, I even caught myself nodding in agreement at something Aaron wrote. If you enjoy heading out to your local bar for a night of drinking with friends, you will most likely find this book a good read. The same holds true if you are past this point in your life yet enjoy sharing tales of your drinking days. Basically, this book is for anyone who enjoys/enjoyed drinking for the simple sake of drinking. Sometimes with the sole purpose of getting drunk.
