   An engrossing collection of essays
I have read four previous collections of articles and essays by the author. The writing style of this book took away from the information because it got too erudite. The book took me back to a time when the environment was analogue and digital.

   Hit and miss
Readers will disagree with his choices in attempting to cover all of the trends, events, and innovations of the last ten years of the twentieth century. The reader should appreciate the nostalgia found in the book, rather than quibble with his conclusions. A decade which does not feature a world war, presidential assassination, toppled skyscraper, or Pandemic offers a respite from our current stress.

   if you love chuck, you'll love it
chuck has been reading since fargo rock city. He becomes a tighter writer with each book. He is evolving. He sheds, one by one, his chuckisms of tone, like almost always, except that the exact opposite was true or it never could be. The day it arrived, I read the nineties in one sitting. It's well structured and well written, but I wanted it to be longer. The problem with the nineties is that he's always written relevant essays in other books. I almost wanted to see those bits in this narrative. It would be the ultimate. The final cut was revised to make the book more complete and fatter.

   One trick pony
It wasn't possible for a book of essays to repeat a single analytical trick six hundred times and be considered a success. Until it happened. It was pleasant to read the anecdotes he covered. The monotony of tone and shallow analysis was hard to overcome.

   Chuck nails it again
I was looking forward to reading this one, I am a fan of the work of Klosterman. I remember most of the subjects in the book when I was 18. If you're a fan of anything 90s, you'll be happy to know that Chuck does a great job covering it.
