    I always say that if a writer can evoke complete hatred and dislike for their protagonist from me, then they must be a good writer Lucinda Rosenfeld s What She Saw comes to mind In that regard, Curtis Sittenfeld is an excellent writer perhaps it s a last name thing but Prep sucks Two reasons why I hated Prep 1 NOTHING happens I don t mind e

    WellThis book isn t getting five stars because I thought it was a literary masterpiece It s getting them because it s the first boarding school narrative I ve read ever that is indicative of the actual experience, or at least my actual experience Other books fiction on the subject, such as Black Ice or Oh the Glory of it All, tend to stick to

    Let me first admit that Prep was far from perfect I m not sure I could argue against many of the bad reviews At times, I longed for the novel to hurry along The foreshadowing was clunky Occasionally I was so bored I wasn t sure I could get through the entire novel.And then heavy sigh , Sittenfeld did what I hadn t imagined anyone could do She m

    This book makes me want to shout at its critics, you don t have to identify with the protagonist to like the book identification isn t the only reason to read But then I want to defend it precisely because it seems so real I.e., I identify with it Now I say defend because the book is marketed as chick lit I don t care how much reputable praise yo

    This was a huge disappointment to me The only other book I have read by this author is Eligible A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice and I enjoyed that one so much I thought I was in for another treat Sadly it was not to be.Although the writing was beautiful and the recounting of life in a boarding school was probably fairly accurate, the main chara

    Two stars is way to generousI read the entire book Okay, so I might have skipped huge chunks of it but I read it The book is about a girl that goes to a boarding school, she is shy and quite boring , the book summary explains it i did not pick up this book because I wanted to read about 4 years of being stuck in a boarding school, that she applied to But c
