Some time ago there was a youtube thread and /lit/ recommended this guy,

now I see he uploaded a (very positive, so far) review of
>Submission - Michel Houellebecq
and he references a recent (positive) review by Knausgaard of the book.
(Who himself references À rebours by Huysmans.)

So I thought I make a thread and dump those links here and watch/read on.

/lit/ seems less favorable of him, if I recall. Is it because they disregard the opinions expressed, or somehow because of the writing?

sick viral marketing, saged
>>
>>7334121
Because so many people are on /lit/?
I've never watched a video by the guy and after reading the Knausgaard review am at minute 7 in the clip now.
>>
This guy is a piece of shit who cares more about his image than any real discussion. Might as well just skim the book's Wikipedia page because he sure doesn't have any insight

He pretty much just makes film reviews now anyway, in other words, he admits he's a hack
>>
Is this guy our Anthony Fantano or w/e yet?
>>
>>7334155
Cool, he should probably post here
>>
Better Than Food, pls go.
>>
he is pretty lame but the only BookTubah out there really grindin in these lit streets
>>
>>7334155
The youtuber of Knausgaard?
Since I don't see film reviews on the youtube channel and since Knausgaard speaks of van Trier, I'm inclined to think you mean the latter?
>>
youtube is fuckin retarded

This guy has pretty good taste but goddamn his "reviews" are superficial. He basically does a summary and throws out a couple of adjectives instead of actually doing any real analysis.
>>
>>7334119
He actually just reads reviews then proceeds to expropriate those reviews as his own.

Say that girl was attracted to you. What do you think it would be like to spend an evening with her?
>>
>>7334470
Looks like a typical lighty with a flattering filter on. Those girls are ten a penny in London.
>>
>>7334119
gigantic douchebag. What is that shit he is reading out in the beginning?
>>
This dude obviously does this shit for fun and he is one of the least offensive out of all those YouTube review channels. You guys get heated like teenage try hards.
>>
>>7334513
It's just dull. What's the point in watching this bullshit?
>>
>>7334517

I never said you have to watch it, but it is just try hard and goofy to rage about a channel this inoffensive.

>>7334119

Lit is fine with hollaback in general, they just don't suck his ugly troll dick like some people do.

Hollaback is amazing insofar that he might be one of the most authentic writers to come along in a very long time. That being said he is always authentic about the same kind of bitter things.

This book submission looks promising though.

Who's raging? I'd describe the tone of this thread as indifference.
