Freakonomics vs SLASH
There are many similarities and differences between the two books (Freakonomics by Steven Levitt and the autobiography of SLASH) that I chose to do evaluations on. Firstly, Freakonomics is revolved around economic ideas. SLASH, on the other hand, is about a rock band and the 80's and 90's heavy metal scene. Additionally, Freakonomics is basically a number of occurrences that is each explored and investigated. SLASH, however, is a narrative account of Saul Hudson's life from his birth to present day. Both of the novels use satire and controversial humor to attract a rebellious audience, though. Another similarity is the sarcasm that both authors take up throughout both stories.
