I Hate Myself and Want to Die: The 52 Most Depressing Songs You've Ever Heard by Tom Reynolds
I Hate Myself and Want to Die: The 52 Most Depressing Songs You've Ever Heard

mvprince, November 16, 2008

I don't know if these are the 52 most depressing songs I've ever heard, but author Tom Reynolds definitely makes a strong case for all of them (with the possible exception of Ben Folds Five's "Brick"). This is a funny, well-written analysis of the 52 songs, including famous hits like "Total Eclipse of the Heart" and "My Immortal" as well as lesser-known or older songs like "Strange Fruit" and "DOA." Definitely worth reading, for anyone who likes funny/smart music criticism.

Sweetheart by Chelsea Cain

The first book was better. It's hard to quantify my problems with this series without giving away any surprises, but let's just say it stretches my suspension of disbelief. I'm aware that Stockholm Syndrome (in which victims of crime identify with, care about, or even, I guess, fall in love with, the people who harm them) exists, but this book takes it to a level I found hard to buy. The relationship between the two main characters (Gretchen and Archie) is getting more and more difficult to accept, and Gretchen is starting to seem more like a superhero than a serial killer (her power to charm all men, at all times, into doing anything at all, for example, is not very believable).
