really liked it
bookshelves: relationships, women-s-fiction
Read in February, 2009

Three young men at a private school ruin their lives when they get drunk and are videotaped in compromising situation with an underage girl. This book is the story of the young men and their families and their teachers and the young girl.

I found the strength of the book to be in the way it was told. I liked the way the author told the story in chapters using various points of view. It felt very real.

I thought the tale was a bit too Oprah-ish, the social problem of the week. None of the characters was terribly likable, except for Silas who seemed to have been caught up in the drinking amid family difficulties and was a victim of circumstances.

All in all, a ho-hum Shreve.
