I really like Such a Fun Age, so I was looking forward to this. Total disappointment. I did the audiobook and felt throughout that it was just bad teenage TV. ( )

I don't need likable characters in a book, but these days, I prefer to have some glimmer of hope -- not to walk away from a novel, particularly a well written one, feeling really sad for everyone in the book. There's enough to feel sad about already.

I am baffled by people who need characters to be 'likeable.' If you could hear what goes on in any person's head 24/7 they wouldn't be 'likeable.' Media literacy is at an all-time low. ( )

None of the characters are very likeable - all make pretty poor decisions and have to live with the consequences. Reid's previous book dealt with race relations in a more realistic manner. This book was a little far fetched. Didn't enjoy. Narrator was good. ( )

If you enjoy reading almost 400 pages of diva drama, then this book might be for you. It is nothing but a bunch of teenage college students, mostly female, and the drama they create in their lives. There are a few points in the book that were interesting, but very few. Mostly the book was a chore to read and I was tempted to DNF it on multiple occasions.

There is very little plot to the book, just the everyday drama these drama queens create for themselves and their dorm mates. The book is set in a dormitory on the University of Arkansas campus. Most of the students are from out of state, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Iowa, etc. From that point, little happens until the end of the book. The characters were mostly unlikeable. I do not need for the characters to be likeable, but it would be nice to be able to relate and emphasize with them and their struggles. I could not have cared less what happens to these characters.

The book opens strangely with the introduction of Professor Agatha Paul, whom it seems will be a major character in the book. Then, she disappears for over 60 pages. I was left wondering what happened to this character who was so important that the book opened with her.

The major issues with the book is its length. It is too long, coming in at over 380 pages. At least 100 pages, or more, could have been cut. The book would have been a faster and tighter read. Also, there are too many characters in the book. I counted over 70 distinct characters. Every insignificant character was named in the book. This was too many characters to keep track of without writing them down, which I did, and it took four pages of paper to keep track of them.

In addition, there are a number of craft issues with the book. As the author is supposedly an Assistant Professor teaching creative writing at the University of Michigan, I would have expected a better result. I guess anyone can be a professor at the U. of Michigan. There are many point of view shifts, even within the same paragraph. Lots of head hopping. At one point, we are in Millie's head and in the very next sentence (same paragraph), we are told what another character is thinking. How does Millie know what they are thinking? There were also a lot of missing dialogue tags, so knowing who was speaking was next to impossible. This was confusing, especially when several people were together and speaking at the same time. The speaker was impossible to determine. Plus, other than one character, all of the characters spoke alike. People of different ages from different parts of the country do not speak alike. Thus the dialog was stilted and uncreative. There were a few misspelled words also. I guess the editor fell asleep while proofreading the text. There were also many incorrect and unclear pronoun antecedent agreement issues.

The worst part of the book was the ending. Several characters acted out of character so the author could quickly wrap up the book. The ending was neither believable nor credible. Had the ending been better, I might have given the book two stars for the few interesting parts. But unfortunately, it does not even deserve the one start minimum I had to give it. Don’t waste your time with this book, nor your money. ( )
