I love Dave Eggers. If the world he created in this book existed today, I would be accused of stealing, since I haven't yet posted reviews of his other books that I've read. I sometimes feel overwhelmed when trying to keep up with my social media. If...more

Being a writer myself, it always feels somewhat awful to critique another writer's work, especially a writer I admire. But I have to say that this is more a chronicle of college than it is a novel. If he'd focused more on basketball and JoJo's story,...more

But for the ending, this would be a masterpiece. But every lovely thing must contain a flaw. I also wanted more inner life and psychological portraits of the characters.
