So I'm not some sex crazed whacked out druggy alcoholic that can reminisce about scenes in this book, nor was I tempted to be one of these people as most of the "outcast" kids are portrayed in this book. While I can't personally relate to the "party scene" in this book, I thought it was an interesting read overall. Some readers will find the fictional story as literary pornography, while others will appreciate its fresh candor on the sex lives of today's teenagers. No doubt, if a reader were to consume only certain parts of the book, many different descriptions could be made of it.

Blunt and brutal, tackling everything from preteen oral sex to gun violence, sexual assault, and suicide, Beckerman's tour de force through contemporary adolescence will leave you stunned, breathless, and ultimately horrified. Скачать (lit, . 6 Mb). Epub FB2 PDF mobi txt RTF.

Alright, I tend to steer away from MTV products, but this one intrigued me. I barely paid attention to MTV when I was a teenager, and I would say I was the venerable outcast in High School. I think this book is designed to try to get you to identify with at least one of the characters. I was not part of that "party scene" that is talked about, not only here, but in books & movies concerning college. I was the kid that most people only saw at school, because I typically stayed home, played guitar, read books, and played video games. That was my life. I did have a girlfriend and a few friends that would come over, but that's about it. So I'm not some sex crazed whacked out druggy alcoholic that can reminisce about scenes in this book, nor was I tempted to be one of these people as most of the "outcast" kids are portrayed in this book.

While I can't personally relate to the "party scene" in this book, I thought it was an interesting read overall. Is this the reality of the situation this book tries to portray? Well, not every High School will be like this, not every teenager will do these things. On the other side, there ARE some teenagers that do this and there ARE High Schools that have these problems. Not everyone has parents who don't care about them. Not all of these statistics are 100% accurate. I'm a Financial Analyst and math is kind of my thing. And anyone who knows anything about Probability & Statistics knows that you can easily lie or misconstrue the truth with them. So I take stats with a grain of salt, but I did find them interesting. I also found the way they worked into the book a very creative and unique idea (and yes, a good idea as well). I also thought it was a very interesting and good idea for the author to have little personal stories between the chapters.

I think the books message overall is a good one, but I don't think everything is a major problem and it's not just an "America" issue like some people think. Throughout history there have ALWAYS been people that fall into this category and roles (i.e. the sex crazed party maniac). I mean there are ancient rulers that had harems, it's not like this group sex concept is totally new and revolutionary. I think the more disturbing part is that people find this "shocking" as if it's never happened before. I think the books message of being a general wake-up call IS the point. People do need to wake up. I think this points out that the lack of parenting in some cases is becoming a problem. My parents are both High School teachers and I, too often, here stupid stories of uneducated parents trying to point the finger someplace else for their childs misdeeds. The parents are usually the first ones to say it's the schools fault, when if the parent had been around more then maybe something wouldn't have happened. This is also a societal problem, because the parents aren't around just becuase they don't want to be (all the time), in a lot of cases they are at work. Society now demands the work of TWO parents in a household a lot of times. Being a stay at home mom or dad is not that easy anymore. And no, this isn't just an American problem, it's going to be Global as the third world more and more joins the forces of our growing economy.

I think, in the end, maybe the book was a little over the top in it's portrayal of sex scenes, but a lot of times you need to go to extremes to get people to pay attention these days (within logical reason of course). I think he wrote an engrossing story with characters people can get into, even though just about all of them are tragic characters. The book was not very long so character development was sort of minimal, but I think the point there was to get our ADHD plagued society to sit still for an hour to read a book that might mean something to them. I'm sorry but "To Kill a Mocking Bird" didn't really speak to me generationally when I was in High School and I doubt it does now even though some may enjoy the story.

What KIDS did in film, this book does for literature. It's a must read for any one who wants to know what their children just might be up to.

As a novel, this isn't much. The writing comes across as somewhat amateurish and it doesn't help that huge chunks of the book are devoted to large print statistics or the author's autobiographical sexual experiences.

But this book is worth reading if you want to understand contemporary teen despair (at least for some). Ashley's explanation for her promiscuity and her resulting suicidal tendencies at the end of the book are poignant and don't come across as stilted or preachy. And the brutal gang rape of Quinn (Brett's flighty star-struck ex-girlfriend) literally gave me nightmares. At one point, Beckerman (in one of his copious footnotes) blames feminism and the resulting absentee parenting on the screwed-up life of these teens. But the adults who are in the book are either inept in a beaurocraticized way, or completely dysfunctional (like Julie's alcoholic parents.) It all ends badly for everyone, except maybe for Max, the one teen who hasn't (yet) gone completely emotionally numb or haywire.

Anyone praising this novel as original has likely not read its multitude of predecessors, and many are so much better.
Beckerman is certainly a talented writer and may have something more to offer as he matures, but he provides little here that hasn't been done much better by Bret Easton Ellis (LESS THAN ZERO) and Jay MacInerney (BRIGHT LIGHTS, BIG CITY). Even the mediocre TWELVE by Nick McDonell has a little more to offer. The sexual subject matter here is descriptive but seems rather silly at some points, and no more shocking than your basic MTV video.
I'll keep an eye out for his next book, but this one is second rate.

Generation S.L.U.T. is not for everyone. Some readers will find the fictional story as literary pornography, while others will appreciate its fresh candor on the sex lives of today's teenagers. No doubt, if a reader were to consume only certain parts of the book, many different descriptions could be made of it. However, its sum total is a truthful and necessary message for parents, teenagers, and educators. Marty has taken the veil off of a once secretive subject, and has served it as a full course meal to the unaware, and uninitiated. The book maintains a status of being for everyone, yet it's not for everyone. If you have a strong stomach, much like the kind needed to hear stories about surgery or bathroom mishaps at the dinner table, then you'll be able to handle this book.

I have been for a long time interested in books about the men and women and cultural studies. That is what I thought I was getting with this book. I was wrong.

The writing of this book is incredibly sophomoric, with the serialized short stories being even less then that. There is no insight into what drives this new rage of sexuality, nor its effect on this generation of sex obsessed kids. What commentary there is on the effects is only looks at the surface and doesn't delve into noteworthy.

This book feels more like it is written by someone who is sex crazed rather then a look critique of anything.
