Aug 19, Corey rated it really liked it Shelves: The nameless protagonist jultgen the first novel has returned having been married for a few years to the once hot and now quite frigid woman he left his old girlfriend for. I know people are unfaithful but I prefer to believe that not every man thinks the way the men and women do in Kultgen’s books. Some people would call this book: This narrator is overall unforgettable. This continuation of the tale of our relatable and by that I mean we vicariously desire these experiences without the oft-unpleasant ramifications narrator borders on boring.

He says what we all want to say, but don’t want to believe. He is one of those love-or-hate writers with a strong bias to subjects some people may find gross, disturbing or plain childish. That the husband is so disgusted with his wife’s changing body after aging and bearing his children? Feb 21, Peter Knox rated it liked it Shelves: Feb 10, Isaiah rated it really liked it Shelves: I have been typing in word or notepad documents because this had been happening but thought “oh mrriage will be fine this time” but it WASN’T.

It’s a heavy handed satire that makes modern life less than attractive but at the same time bracing in its honesty.

The Average American Marriage (Average American, book 2) by Chad Kultgen

I was very pleased that the author was able to have these in his novels without taking away from the plot line or doing them injustices. Chad speaks the truth! This book is not kind to women, or women’s bodies. Her body gives him chicken skin because it is no longer the shape he married.


No trivia or quizzes ameircan. There are graphic novels and then there are graphic novels. I love how mundane he thinks his life is, because it is.

Most of the minds of these males seem like they are based on the stereotypical movie frat boy type thinking. This book proves that not only does Kultgen bring no While I considered the first book delightfully indulgent. It has all been an insane ride of sex, but avearge just bad sex, or good sex, but sex, in all forms.

Rather, Kultgen depicts the drudgery and the slow and miserable process of physical desire denied and denied again under the strain of a marriage well into, I believe, its half decade mark, and shows the fountain of life, of the reawakening inherent in really good, really passionate sex.

Insightful here and there, but mostly predictable as hell.

The Average American Marriage. This book is incredible and I couldn’t quite seem to put it down. Pick it up for a good laugh and some much needed insight into what your hubbies really want. And funny, as much as I hate About 4. maarriage

Also, a gay wedding. Not for the squeamish!

The Average American Marriage by Chad Kultgen

This was of the most funnest books I have read in a long time. If you are not into the mans take of a “fifty shades of gray” I would suggest saving yourself the time and the money.

The writing style is simplistic and direct which makes the work feel more truthful than it already is. Lets’s laugh out loud always difficult for a book to pull offand pretend that my life never was and never will be like this one.


But where Kultgen sort of slips is the mistaking of pleasure for happiness as Roger Ebert stated reviewing Todd Solondz’s film Happiness. The characters are nothing more than shit- and cum- stained cardboard cutouts. I recommend this book, but I highly recommend the first book. Despite the narrator the author is able to discuss sensitive issues without offending well maybe small offenses, but that is how the narrator works.

Unlike his other books, I left this one with a little less of a smile than I did coming in. Posted by Jason Rice Nov 19, Reviews 0. View all 27 comments. Its impossible to feel anything for them. I am always worried when there is a gay character on a novel especially if the characters are as unlovable as this main character is for most of the series. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

One can look at this novel in one or two ways: Its just that the characters are one dimensional cartoons.

The book, not the year. I’m quite surprised we haven’t had complaints about it yet. You are plugged directly into the mind of an average American male and its not pretty.

The Average American Marriage

He’s brutal in his honesty. Beware of Pity by Stefan Zweig Sep 20, When that falls short of adequate satisfaction, he strikes up an affair with a younger, more adventurous woman at work, the intern he hired. I am sad to say that the first book was better.
