    1 thought on “The Earworm Inception”

    1. Konrath's stories read a lot like my dreams -- sick, twisted, and probably suggestive of all sorts of undiagnosed psychiatric issues. The difference here is that, while I've rarely been able to capture the same kind of madness on paper, Konrath succeeds in blending even his most surreal notions with just the right amount of logic necessary for storytelling.Now, I'm not suggesting that he draws his material from a star-speckled journal on his nightstand or anything so lame as that. Quite to the c [...]

    2. The Earworm Inception is like that awesome metal band you discovered in 11th grade that nobody had heard of and everybody you let listen to it thought it was amazing because you were all cranked up on cheap speed at that age. At least that’s what it is to me… A rare gem in the endless catalog that nobody will ever hear of or read.But if ever does get popular, I’m gonna feel like a totally before-my-time hipster that let people borrow the book and fall in love with it one at a time. Just l [...]

    3. The Earworm Inception is a collection of about twenty gonzo-nutty short stories wherein Jon Konrath displays his signature techno-nerd cynicism and subversive humor through a writing style where plot and other traditional storytelling devices are sacrificed to the gods of hyperbole, factual distortion, mashed-up pop culture reference, and free association in order to give modern consumer culture the blistering satirical spanking it deserves. The devil’s in the details. A Subway shop run by Abr [...]

    4. This book has all the bizarre fun I've come to hope for from Konrath. I think we aren't truly able to contemplate how messed up contemporary life is until we extend our trends to their extremes and twist that reflection back upon ourselves. Konrath does that, and does it well. I can't wait for his next book.

    5. REVIEW ALSO ON: bibliomantics/2012/06/12/bThe majority of the stories in this collection, which are written in super short flash fiction, feature strange characters in an even stranger universe intriguingly similar to our own. They also seem to revolve around author Jon Konrath, called Kon by his close-friend (in the novel) Rick Perry and the strange circumstances that revolved around his life semi-fictional life. Everyone in these tales are marked with unique character traits, hilarity, and pop [...]

    6. I haven't laughed this much since I read my first Bukowski novel! Although the atmospheric overtones of Bukowski's musings are not present here, Konrath fuses words brilliantly to tell bizarre yet entertaining tales. Already cutting another piece of his "bizarro" fiction pie. Loved every minute of it.

    7. This being my second book from Konrath, I am beginning to understand and appreciate what he does more and more. The man is simply brilliant. I wish I could be even a tenth as funny, thought provoking and knowledgeable when poking fun at contemporary human behavior. If I ever tried, it would probably come off like a brainless crony following him around, saying in a tough guy voice, "Yeah, what he said." That is not to say that is all that is happening here is someone raping pop culture. There is [...]

    8. Some people are addicted to NyQuil-flavored stuffed crust pizza, but I'm addicted to the stories of Jon Konrath. Here's a guy who's invented his own storytelling form and then injected it with sad humor and a dose of righteous madness. When I saw the title "What We Talk About When We Talk Canine Nutrasweet Poisoning," I disturbed a bus full of Malaysians with laughter that I was trying to hold in. My wife said it sounded like I was choking. Buy this book.

    9. Konrath puts the "POP" in culture with enough laughter that would make cracking a rib after an Evil Knivel stunt; jumping over 20 refrigerators being ravaged through by a quarter of Somalia, while riding in a shopping cart. Feel like tickle. **yea thats my attempt at Pop Culture**But Konrath is WAY better than that. I wanted to quote so much of this, but I remembered Eddie Murphy's stand up comedy "Delirious" where he says never tell someone else's jokes cuz it sounds like shit.Just read this yo [...]

    10. Konrath is so weird. I love it. This one is shorter than the other 2 I have, but it was great. I laughed out loud a few times. That's rare.
