This and Batuman’s previous The Idiot are both fabulous campus novels which I’d recommend to any former humanities student.

DNFing at 17%. One of those books about mundane things, nothing really happens in the character's life and that's the point because that's how real life is. There are definitely some poignant, quotable moments about adolescence/college life, but I'm just not vibing with this kind of book right now.

i liked this book, but i wish i could've taken more time with it - i had to really rush because it was on hold at the library, so i couldn't renew. i thought this was very clever etc but it also made me pretty sad. the idea is that we're all supposed to cherish the naivety of youth, because as we grow older we lose the capacity to be so stupid and so embarrassing - and it just made me miserable that there are not as many stories about adults going on these journeys of self-discovery, when actually, frankly, many people in their 20s and 30s and beyond are still very stupid. i shouldn't have to read about an 18/19 year old to find themes like the shock of first love... idk. maybe i'm just going through something but this hit me from a weird angle. i wanted to love it but i only liked it, and mostly on an intellectual level. nevertheless it is very good… (més)
