did not like it

I read this book because my stepson wanted me to. I gave him the wonderful book The Last Convertible by Anton Myrer some time ago, and he read that and this back to back. Not surprisingly, he experienced some cognitive dissonance because of it. I found this book, the first I've read by Ellis, to be a dark and depressing slog through a college experience I'm glad to have missed. All the characters struck me as amoral and unlikable. Unlikable is too weak a word, I found these people to be loathsome and abhorrent. I was glad to see the last of them. The artsy plot devices annoyed me, too.
