    It was a good book to read. Some parts definitely kept gong on but sometimes it would get interesting. You have to keep reading this book in order to get some info out of it.
    It is a pretty scary book if you are currently going into college or just getting a job. It is a good book to rad if you want to see what you should avoid.

    You have to read it to the end

    In all honesty, this was an assigned book for my high school econ class, which is not my favorite subject, nor was I sure it was going to be my favorite. Kamenetz is indubitably a talented journalistic writer, and her subtle wit was enjoyable. Because it is not a subject I relish learning about, this book was not the most riveting I have read. That being said, I think it is important for you to read the WHOLE book, because like it or not, it grew on me a little by the end. As depressing as the bulk of it was, the end was rather uplifting, and Kamenetz seems determined to change the way things currently are. It is a useful book for those "adultescents" struggling financially, and if you can look past the dismal anecdotes and statistics, it is worth reading.

    Useful and Boring goes hand-in-hand

    As a high school senior taking the scary plunge into tuition, financial aid, student housing credit cards, etc. I figured that this book would aid me through my college years with little debt as possible. Anya Kamenetz does an amazing job conveying that the it is steadily getting harder for this generation to be successful but I constantly found myself, well, bored. I'm not sure if it has to do with my age or attention span or what, but I found it difficult to complete the book. It was a useful book but now I am more scared than ever to dive into college. It was a boring, useful, reality check.
