Recommended to Nathan by: a friend who had never read it
Recommended for: very few people
I own a copy, read count: 1

It wasn't the worst book I've ever read, but it was probably the worst book I've had the patience to finish (in part because it was pretty short). While I would never have purchased this myself (it was given to me as a gift), I initially thought the concept was pretty fun (a college guide and a murder mystery wrapped into one book). The novelty quickly wore off -- the only thing that kept me going was the fact that some of the information in the margins was actually kind of relevant to me.

Probably not worth picking up. Maybe if you are a prospective Yalie and have a thing for murder mysteries (no matter how poorly conceived or executed).

In short: a terrible murder mystery bundled with a so-so college guide.

Wade Dizdar Attitudes such as expressed in this review do not build the optimum college environment; perhaps these terrible tales can scare them off!!!
