I think this was a good book, if you are the type of person who likes college or partying scenarios. Although I liked this book, it was

very repetitive. The author portrays the main character Bret and his friends doing a lot of the same things throughout the book; they

drink, they party, and they mess things up. Bret's father is disappointed because he didn't apply to an Ivy League college.

This book also shows how Bret goes through college and deals with his problems. I would recommend this boo

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.

Well... I don't know. I don't know what the author wanted to accomplished with this book and I don't know what happened after the 21 shots or whatever it was.

I found it difficult to read for its vocab.

very interesting ending, almost fear and loathing in las vegas like. rest of the story was interesting with flashbacks and present time.

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