    hilarious satire of the Americam college experience; Do not send your daughters to a college with greek life!

    much better developed than his earlier 'average american male', The Lie is the story of three friends whose lives are inextricably intertwined. Admittedly vulgar, though i found the vulgarity added great value and humor. Told through alternating first person accounts from the three main characters. Its a shame that a lot of what is embellished here about college life is in fact not far off base. Brings clarity to the mantras: no girl is important enough to ruin a friendship over; and most importantly, Hell hath no fury like (even a vapid) a woman scorned... Fun read. I will never send my daughter to a college with greek life after reading this book...

    Still a bit over the top...

    After recerntly finsishing the average american male, I was intrigued to read the Lie. While the story contains many of the same language and even similiarities with characters, I found this novel to be a much better told story. The plot was interesting and had many turns I didn't see coming. I found myself compelled to keep reading just to see what horrible occurence the 3 narrators kept referring to. I enjoyed the style, the vocab and the vehicle the author chose to tell his story. Not the most high brow book but worth a read none the less.
