Karen You took the words out of my mouth! I have never felt so cheated by a book. The author treats her reader as though she has no imagination at all.

Karen Hi Karen - glad to hear someone else felt the same way!

Caroline This book has gotten so many good reviews its good to see someone that feels the same way as me; the book wasn't great at all.

Maggie Agreed!

Jennifer Braden I'm reading this right now. I really detest this book, but I have invested enough time into it that I feel I need to finish it. Ugh. I don't care about these people. How did it get published? Who would make it into a movie? People who are very out if touch with readers/moviegoers. Also, why is it always chicken Marbella? Why the use of the word schadenfreude? She used both in "You Should Have Known', which, incidentally, was an excellent novel, IMO.

GourmetPhD You may be interested instead in the new novel Slightly out of Tune which also takes place in an Ivy League --though a fictitious one (the author is a student at Princeton). It is not about the admission process but about life on campus and how much these schools which encourage "diversity" in admissions lead to conformity once the students are in.

Vivid I will never again be able to employ the word 'affable' without conjuring up the chaotic anxieties and beige personalities that populate Admission. Also, I am not sure I have ever encountered so much comma-centric exposition in my life, unbelievably.
