George Saunders proves to be extremely entertaining in his novel, “The Braindead Megaphone,” as he captures the interest of his readers with his unique thinking and writing styles. Saunders demonstrates his strange writing while speaking of how our attentions has drifted and gone from being hard to impress to, the loudest person in the room having everyone’s undivided attention. In the first chapter, Saunders does so by having his readers imagine they are at a party and by using imagery, he proves his point.

In the first chapter, Saunders says to imagine you’re at a party and everyone is being a good partygoer until, the man with the megaphone speaks. Although he is not saying anything of great importance, the crowd’s attention shifts his way and they seem to engulf every word that comes out of his mouth. He goes on to say that he talks about random topics such as a spring morning and how he enjoys them. Saunders then goes on saying how shortly after the guy with the megaphone speaks of such a topic, everyone else in the room changes their conversation to either agree or disagree with what he is saying.

This goes to show how easily it has become for people’s attention to be swayed. Society today no longer pays attention to how in depth the conversation is but rather how entertaining the person speaking is. It is sad as it makes me wonder if people would rather listen to a comedian poke fun of the issues that our occurring for our nation or the factual news that intricately describes our nations underlying issues.

Later on in the chapter, Saunders talks about how the media has affected our thought process and goes on to say, “Shows like Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, resuscitated an old American streak of simplistic, fear-based rhetoric that, infected to a greater or lesser extent, the rest of the media. The necessity of profit is now assumed for our mass-media activities. ”(pg11 and 12) The book, “ The Braindead Megaphone,” is an extremely credible source and is interesting at that.

I can personally agree with most of what Saunders says as entertainment has in fact become the key to the public’s interest. I for one cannot truthfully tell you the last time I sat down and watched a show that’s sole purpose was for informant and not for entertainment. It is a sad thought and it leaves me feeling that I have fallen under the state of those whose interest has been captured by the loud, braindead person in the room.
