      If Kurt Vonnegut and Michel Houellebecq had a kid and that kid was raised in the bay area circa 2012, they would have produced something like this.Here, at last, is the full frontal, humanistic assault on our digitized age which older, more venerable writers are simply too tired, or too out of touch to make. By reminding us of a simple fact, namely, of who really controls and makes money off of the internet, Kobek clears out years of bullshit, techno-utopian thinking. Online activism, tumblr soc [...]

      20% of this book is profound in a way that genuinely inspires 10% is profound in a way that baits pseudo-intellectuals by giving them something they can righteously echo. 20% is your activist college roommate who makes a lot of sense until you realize he's no fun5% is straight-up GTFO5% is despair that not enough people will read this because no one reads anymore :( 10% makes you feel bad for existing right now20% is really, really funny10% is enragingIt's far from a perfect book, but I'd recomm [...]

      Iako me ovakvi naslovi u startu odbijaju, jer pomislim da je u pitanju neko besmisleno hejtovanje koje je samo sebi cilj, iz nekog razloga uzeh ovu knjigu, i začudo, nisam zažalio. Pisana iz ugla sveznajućeg pripovedača, knjiga spaja nekoliko likova kojima je uglavnom zajedničko to što neki deo života provode u San Francisku. San Francisko je grad u kom takođe obitavaju silni radnici IT industrije, jer većina najvećih IT firmi upravo tamo ima svoja glavna predstavništva, pa to uveliko [...]

      Lista utisaka o ovoj knjizi u stilu Buzzfeed liste, jer pokušavam da napravim eksperiment, da li sve što se napiše u ovakvom ili sličnom formatu izgubi svaki smisao. Ako ste čitali knjigu biće vam jasno zašto se ovo pitam jer:1.Da nisam pročitala sinopsis na poleđini uopšte mi ne bi bilo jasno o čemu se radi u ovoj knjizi.2.Jedino što je zanimljivo u vezi ove knjge je njen naslov i korice.

      This novel does make you feel like you're surfing from one hyperlink to the next, or like pacman eating away liberal ruminations on a gigantic discussion board - but does this make for a good book? Let’s talk about the story: There is none. Well, there are some recurring characters, but it’s not like this book is about them, they just serve the purpose to string together random internet- and silicon valley-related anecdotes, facts, and opinions. Some of them are new and interesting, most of [...]

      San Francisco has always been an odd city to me. There are many wonderful things about it, but then the technology internet companies moved in, and sort of changed the landscape from the literary beats with great bars to Google world. Yet the city houses one of the great bookstores in the world, the iconic (rightfully so) City Lights, but alas, the literary tradition does continue on, which is Jarett Kobek's novel "I Hate The Internet." Yet, the novel doesn't prowl through the streets of Dashell [...]

      Evo jedne lijepo osmišljene svaštare o svaštari nad svaštarama - internetu. Negdje pročitah da je Kobek spoj Vonegata i Uelbeka i to mi je bilo dovoljno da poželim da pročitam ovu knjigu. Ima li istine u tome? U određenoj mjeri - svakako. Šta je Kobek ovdje strpao? Šta nije? U glavni tok radnje, koji prati ilustratorku stripova Adelajn, utkano je zaista mnogo toga o seksizmu i rasizmu, intelektualnoj svojini i konzumerizmu, društvenim mrežama i njihovim korisnicima, marketingu i slob [...]

      Ono kad sva ona mišljenja koja inače možeš pročitati na internetu odštampaš na papiru, i onda to bude više kul nego da ih objaviš na fejsbuku. I onda kad ti i ja koji čitamo ovo i slažemo se s ovim budemo više kul samima sebi zato što čitamo skup reciklirani papir. Inače, odlična knjiga. Obeležila sam jedno 20ak strava citata, koje ću da koristim u narednom periodu da objavljujem postove na Internetu da bih privukla pažnju koju ne mogu (još) da naplatim. Super koktel zanimlji [...]

    9. Jeroen on said:

      Pretty fantastic.This is the first book I've read which genuinely succeeds in a complete critique of the Internet and its effect on its denizens. It succeeds, probably, because it employs its language. Its currency is a tweet-sized cleverness, paragraphs whittled down to declarative one-liners which return all the time, as if the author is merely retweeting himself. Within the book Kobek has already captured the inevitable backlash it will receive, and when he describes his own work as a "bad no [...]

    10. Jaclyn Crupi on said:

      I do hate the internet and I also kind of hated this book. I like my satire razor sharp and clever and with this book I felt like Kobek was hitting me over the head with the satire stick. I found his approach exhausting and repetitive. It's possible I'm just too old for this (I don't have Twitter or Snapchat) and I'm sure millenials will eat it up. What was so frustrating was in amongst all the exhausting hardwork attempts at biting satire there were moments of complete genius. But you have to s [...]

    11. Blair on said:

      Narrated in a wry, staccato, explanatory style, I Hate the Internet is a sort of non-novel – it has the bones of a plot, and features fictional characters (but many more real people), and things happen, but what it really is is an enraged (and knowingly hypocritical) cri de coeur against capitalism, sexism, racism, materialism, gentrification, literary fiction, San Francisco, Ayn Rand, the US government, and, yes, the internet. The internet is, variously, 'an excellent way to distribute child [...]

      Na momente presmešna, u nekoliko navrata bolno dosadna, da bi na kraju ispalo očekivano. Ipak, dobar rent volim više nego išta, tako da je nervni slom jednog od likova u foto finišu dodao po koju zvezdicu.Verovatno najveća mana jeste količina nasumičnosti i preskakanja u radnji, jednostavno postane zamorno i dosadno. Ono što se meni posebno sviđa jeste tema interneta i kako je on promenio svet u proteklih 40ak godina, kako se te promene odražavu na ljude i njihove socijalne navike, a [...]

    13. Simon on said:

      Holy shit. I love this book so god damn much . Finally someone has said everything I've been thinking for the last three years living in San Francisco and they've done it with such style and such wit I can't even believe it. It's hard to describe what this book is. Maybe sort of kind of a whirling vortex-like omniscient rant/narration of the year 2013 that consumes everything it touches and converts it via hate and intelligence into the darkest purest critique and comedy of late capital millenni [...]

      jedini razlog što kobeku nisam dao maksimalnu ocenu je forma. knjiga je napisana nekako blogerski, a ja stvarno mrzim blog. što se sadržaja tiče, mislim da bi ovo trebao da pročita svako ko ima ambiciju da razume svet u kome živimo.

    17. Zachary Romano jr. on said:

      This book is more a screed than a novel, and wow, what a mixed bag. Jarret Kobek uses a variety of characters as mouthpieces for his opinions on how the Internet is the culmination of a long tradition of content creators being screwed out of the fruits of their labor and how internet-driven discourse is not only totally FUBAR but is an amplifier of the FUBARred-ness of our already FUBAR society. Kobek's arguments and observations are occasionally insightful if not particularly well-developed (e. [...]

      I seriously could not finish this. This book has so many raving reviews. So, maybe I did not get the irony, but not only did I find it pretty unreadable but also quite pretentious.

      “A Internet constituía um montão imenso de ideologias, declaradas e implícitas, que reflectiam os valores sociais dos seus vários criadores. Alguns desses homens acreditavam na liberdade de expressão. Outros tinham medo dos russos. E outros acreditavam apenas no dinheiro.”Todo o enredo, caracterizado pelo narrador como um “mau romance”, tem início a partir do momento em que uma das protagonistas, Adeline, comete um dos maiores pecados do século XXI, ao discursar para uma plateia d [...]

    20. Max Urai on said:

      After reading a lot of what Kobek mockingly calls "good fiction", this book felt like a splash of cold water in the face. Kobek has about zero interest in what are normally considered the hallmarks of good books, like lyrical descriptions of houses and parks or meditations on history. His book is deliberately simple in style, with lots of repetitions and explanations about just how Fucked the modern world really is, with people everywhere going lonely and destroying each other over social media [...]

    22. Dutton Kearney on said:

      Like an average five year Twitter account--mostly drivel, but every once in a while there are some perfect one-liners about San Francisco. It reads like a watered-down mashup of R. F. Laird's The Boomer Bible and Kurt Vonnegut at his most repetitive. That being said, the book's constant refrain of Twitter/Google/Facebook/Apple making money off of us making idiots of ourselves as we search for idiocy, stream idiocy, and bask in that narcissistic idiocy is dead on. But we didn't need a novel to sa [...]

      I first heard of this book because I read an interview with the author online. The interview was basically a scathing rant that I found hysterically funny, so I read this book to find more of the same. In that sense the book doesn't disappoint. It's basically a howl in the dark. Reading this for character or plot is not the best mindset with which to approach it. I read it because I enjoyed reading sentences like "Miley Cyrus' songs were about the same six subjects of all songs by all pop stars: [...]

      Jarett Kobek is not a genius, nor was Gilles Deleuze, but the latter had a moment when he wrote, "It is not the slumber of reason that engenders monsters, but vigilant and insomniac rationality," and the former seemingly tapped into a spectral intelligence when he wrote ATTA, henceforth being held to this impossibly high standard when he wants to address the organization of daily living in his works that have followed. I Hate the Internet is a shout from the Mission rooftops to the zombies cradl [...]

    26. Kai Schreiber on said:

      Well. This rant against the current incarnation of web spirit is so clearly modeled on Vonnegut in style and content that it's impossible not to notice how the major ingredient that made Vonnegut's ramblings cohere and transcend is sorely lacking in this one: heart. It is not enough to declare everyone a dumb asshole in a semi-poetic recurring chant, nor to create pessimistic lists of the frustrating mechanisms of existence, to create something positive. While this book is funny at times, and ha [...]

    27. Keith on said:

      Well, who doesn’t? If you don’t Jarett Kobek delivers many scorched earth reasons why you should. His flaming declarations encompass not just the Internet but the casual racism and sexism of modern American society, the passé existence of modern literary fiction, how Marvel comics screwed Jack Kirby, why we’re in thrall to advertising and, in particular, the utter destruction of San Francisco, America’s most beautiful city, by the depredations of modern technology. The book has an odd s [...]

      Flat out wonderful. I can't even explain to myself all the ways I loved reading this book, so I won't bother trying here. I think it will take another reading or two to figure things out, but for now I've fallen for it, am smitten and entangled.It's a very special, self-declaredly *bad novel*. It's about comics and tech giants and San Francisco. It wraps up the world like a piece of toxic waste and invited you to unwrap it. Slowly.It makes you think. It makes you pause and think hard. I apprecia [...]

      Not too much of a narrative but chock full of poignant thoughts. While I laughed out loud multiple times, by the end of the book I felt like crying and removing myself from all social media.
