For starters, I like dystopian novels so much better than utopian novels. I lucked into this one as a free Kindle download, which I read almost entirely on my phone (I just got a Kindle last week and read part of it on there, but finished it on my phone). This was a great novel for the infrequent reading I do on my phone - mainly while I'm waiting and only when I've forgotten to bring the book I'm reading.

The frat had nearly destoryed the house and literally left sh*t all over the place. The fact that they were able to restore the house with the difficulites they had and not murder each other is testament to their love for each other. Kudos to Mr. Tanner for restoring his house with little money, no experience, and turning the process into an enjoyable memoir.… (mais)
