While I was just over at VetVoice, i was scrolling around to see what I missed this weekend since I had a free five minutes this morning and I almost gagged when I saw that NPR’s Thomas Ricks named Kayla Williams’ book Love My Boobs More Than You, or something like that, to his list of top five books about the Iraq War. Of course, he had to name “House to House” by our friend David Bellavia. But to put Bellavia and Williams on the same list is like having steak and turd balls on the same menu. No? Well, some kind of amusing and vastly different comparison…just insert your own giggle here. And click my Google ads.
Anyway, how can Ricks even compare a real-life book that ends with a guy killing a jihadi with his Gerber multi-tool to a book about an overly sexually active girl who joins the Army, screws more guys than Stacy Valentine and whines that guys treat her like a sex object? How do they even wind up in the same bookstore let alone the same list?
You might remember my review of Kayla Williams’ book – I never finished it – the only book ever written in human history which I started and never finished. If that’s what Thomas Ricks honestly believes, I’ll never trust his opinion on anything ever again.
