Bret's story is a rather stereotypical, unrealistic look at the life of a fraternity boy living up the frat life. While many of the events that take place in the book may be accurate to real-life fraternities, his progressive and cohesive thought as he becomes more and more intoxicated discredits the story. It may be appealing to teens for the subject matter, but the message may be a little too preachy to keep them interested.

I found it difficult to read for its vocab.

I didn't like the main character Bret. The ending was dumb. It just left everything unsolved and hanging.
