I bought this book because it was $1.00 here at B&N, and the synopsis seemed somewhat interesting. It was worth the $1.00 I paid for it, but not much more. There is not a lot that goes on in this book; I kept waiting for the action to happen. It never really did. It wasn't so boring that I didn't want to bother finishing it, but it is not something I would ever read again or recommend to a friend. It is set at a fictional college for men in New England. I inferred that the time period is supposed to be around the 1950's; I don't think it was ever explicitly stated. It was written in the 60's, so the language is dated. I tried to keep this in mind, but a lot of the dialogue is a bit corny due to the differing slang terms used back then. I didn't particularly feel like I knew the main characters very well, and didn't really care a whole lot as to the outcome of their problems. I bought another $1.00 book by Alison Lurie; I hope I have better luck with this one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
