it was ok
Read in August, 2009

I thought I would like this novel because I tend to enjoy stories set in boarding schools. The main character in this one, in particular, I thought I'd connect with because he's an English teacher.

However...whoa. I didn't expect I'd have such a problem with the relationship between the teacher and student (this is fiction after all), but I did. It skeeved me out a lot more than I thought it would, mostly because I started to think that the teacher was not specifically interested in Noah; rather, I thought the teacher was perhaps interested in teenagers in a more general sense. And that made me uncomfortable.

Also, the page count is much higher than necessary in order to tell the story. A lot of the narration was really superfluous.
