Two dates--"same" night Major oops. When Casey Cartwright's brother begs her to be nerdy Dale Kettlewell's date to the sure-to-be-boring Honors Engineering Awards, Casey says yes. Even though Dale is "totally" not her type... and might have a crush on her. Ugh. But it's a nice thing to do, and Casey's always been the "nice" girl.

But now, that night conflicts with the bigge

I would actually rate this book about a 3.4.

My biggest complaint regarding this book is that too many characters were thrown into the mix with little or no character development. Initially, it is rather difficult to keep everyone straight. The story also detours onto too many irrelevant tangents that really do not contribute much to the story.

It's actually quite a shame since most of the characters are rather likable and the plotline was interesting, but this novel fell short. I do anticipate th

Casey, a self proclaimed good girl and sorority sister, always tries to do the right thing. Her brother comes to her for a favor. He asks her to get his friend, Dale, a date to the Honors Engineering Awards. Casey ends up going with Dale herself despite her initial hesitation. All is going as planned until the Engineering Awards are canceled and moved to the same night as the All Greek Formal, which is one of the most anticipated nights of the year. This poses a major problem for Casey as she wa ...more

In the interests of full disclosure, I was never in a sorority, and didn't have much exposure to the Greek way of life. All I knew about Greeks, I learned from the movie Animal House. ;) To be perfectly honest, my friends and I used to mock them, especially during hazing when the poor pledges had to dress up in embarrassing outfits and perform degrading chores. I never understood why anyone would want to do that, but some people don't understand my excitement about book conventions, so guess it'

It didn't start out that way. Casey Cartwright was doing the honorable thing. She agreed to help her brother, Rusty, find a date for his roommate, Dale, to the engineering awards' banquet. When she couldn't convince any of her fellow Zeta Beta Zeta sisters or pledges to go with him, she agreed to escort him. Dale was a nice guy. He just had a bit of a crush on her and she wanted to make sure he knew she was going as a friend, nothing more.

I was completely surprised that I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. Normally I don't find myself getting into books like this, but I credit the fantastic writing by Marsha Warner for that. Greek, which is based on the popular TV series, is a light hearted, engaging read. I never once felt confused about what was going on and enjoyed all of the character interactions. I've not watched an episode of Greek, but I can only imagine the writing style is very similar to sitting down and wa ...more

Major oops, indeed! When Rusty asks his older sister to go on a date with his roommate Dale she says ‘yes’. When the date is moved on the day of the Formal, she decides not to go and text him the message. Unfortunately, the geek himself can’t do two things at the same time and the message never reaches him. Also there’s a secret about Rob that only Rebecca knows, but is keeping to herself.

Talk about trouble in paradise. In the beginning it went to slow and I had big trouble getting into the stor

While I never went to an out of state college nor did I join a sorority, this series makes you feel as if you did. You fall in love with the characters and their adventures throughout their college years. Although the title may seem as though you know how it will turn out, it completely surprises you.

Casey is a senior in college, majoring in law until she decided to switch to...... She is also the educator at her sorority ZBZ. Dale is a nerdy engineering student who has been elected to receive a

This book is based on the ABC Family TV show, GREEK. I went into this book having never seen the show and not knowing very much about college fraternities. Regardless, I was interested in reading it because the premise sounded as though it would be pretty funny. Two dates on one night equals lots of craziness!
Casey seems to be a nice enough girl and she had good intentions when she accepted both dates. Both of the guys, Dale and Rob, play into their stereotypes. I wish there had been more

I imagine reading this book was much like watching an episode of the TV show, Greek. I've never seen the show, but I'm thinking I'm not at all the target audience for this show. I like sci-fi and fantasy shows, and the occasional sit-com (but only if it's really funny). So I'd probably never sit down and watch this show, and for that reason I also had a hard time getting through this book.

The writing was okay, but I never felt invested in the story, and for taking place mostly over the period o

This was a great book perfect for a lighter bit of fun on your reading list. Fans of the show will certainly recall the episode on which it is based, but that does not detract from the draw you will feel towards the book. As is often the case, it only adds to the experience, providing the inner dialogue and back storys that couldn't necessarily be fit into an hour's viewing time. Certainly able to be finished in one sitting if one would choose to, but also fun to draw out over a few reading sess ...more

Is it my imagination or they have spelled at the cover the word "Greek" wrong??
No, it isn't. I am Greek, so don't dare contadict me!!! It writes Grssk. The letter Σ (a letter from the Greek alphabet) is definately not equivelent to the "e" in the English alphabet. I think that the editor and the cover designer of this book made a mistake.....

Eh! I was not so impressed with this book. Reading it I thought to myself I can see how this would make a pretty good TV show but a book? No, not so much. The characters were sort of flat. And the story was just annoying - especially because the ending did not really solve the story line. It is left open for more stories.

This was such a fun read. It brought me back to my days as a teen. No, I never had two dates in the same night but I can remember liking two guys at once. I would daydream about what might be and how I would choose one over the other. If you like teen books, I'm pretty sure you will enjoy this one.

It was pretty much like watching the show. And I like the fact that it is a book that can be read without actually having seen the show. I'm looking forward to reading the second one.

Quick and fun, but read more like fanfiction than a novel. I loved this show, so I was happy to read about the characters and their world, but the writing and characterization could have been better. 2.5 stars.

A nice quick read if you were a fan of the show and want more of the characters
I'm marking this one as DNF. As much as I enjoyed the show, I just couldn't get into this one.
