'Here's to fall, winter, and spring, . Here's to friends that I met this year and the friend that I lost. Here's to finding love. It's been a crazy year, it's been a fun year, it's been a sad year, but...it's one year I will never forget. Here's to my Sophomore Year!' - Staush. As Staush always proposed a toast, I propose a toast to the author of this book, for he wrote a book which describes the ups and downs of life, in which everybody and anybody can relate to. This book was a true page turner, in which I felt I knew the characters, anticipating the events to occur. A truly great read!
OK. Great idea. Write a semi-autobiographical account of your college years. But does it have to be such a cliche? Falling out with dad, long term girlfriend, girl of dreams, suicide of best friend. Coming soon to a theatre near you starring Freddie Prinze Jr and Amy Smart. Stylistically insufficient.
This book kept me turining the pages to see what happened next. The book made me laugh and cry. I felt like I new the characters and did not want the book to end. Anyone who has ever gone to college needs to read this book, because everyone can relate to something in My Sophmore Year.
I would give this novel as close as to five stars as possible, reserving five stars for once in a lifetime achievements. This story is told as a third person narrative and puts the main character, Staush in an conflicting situation right off the bat. The story is effortless to read and soon a budding romance builds with the main love interest, Ashley. Their relationship is one filled with flirtations and unwritten desires. Conflict is created by inproprieties with an English Literature Professor that is described impressively by the author. I enjoyed their interaction and kept rushing ahead to scenes involving the three. Without giving too much away, the description of the roommate's tragedy is outstanding and vivid. Overall a fantastic story told with thorough descriptions that brought the campus setting to life. I found myself eager each night to find out what would happen next. A pleasure to read.
