What was great about this book, is that the protagonists were so well written, I couldn't help but day dream about how my group of friends in college would handle an encounter with 'The Educator' - an absolutely vicious predator along the lines of Hannibal Lecter (sans the cannibalism). The position and authority of 'The Educator', not to mention his innate intelligence, careful planning, and meticulous reputation - made for a truly evil character who could navigate society while fulfilling his blood lust.
A great villian, unique setting and characters, and a great read. I highly recommend.
Of course, Andrade himself was trained in the same methods as President Obama, a point that clearly resonates as the reader learns about the secret, murky world of conservative activism on college campuses. This book should not only be required reading for conservative activists, it should provide a checklist of what the successful activist should accomplish in their collegiate career.
Two things need to happen:
1. Here's hoping Andrade gets it made into a film!
2. "The Educator" should become required reading for any college political science course. I would suggest Andrade approach the colleges with this proposal.
3. I would like to see a sequel to this story, in which we get to see into the world of how leftists organize on college campi. Considering how the story ends, I think a sequel could be in the works.
While many tend to associate rebellion from authority with the liberalism of the 1960's, some may be surprised to find out that the anti-establishment on campus today belongs almost exclusively to conservatives. As you saw in the 60's a degree of anarchic personalities drawn to the progressive movement, the Educator shows conservatism on college campus can at times been just as fond of sowing chaos and creating difficulty for the administration as it can be been supporting candidates or political parties.
In The Educator, the liberal and arrogant college administrator, acting without any true accountability, is personified by the President of the University of Minnesota. I really enjoyed how the book takes you into the mind of a serial killer unlike any we know of, in a position of power and prestige that grants him access to an unlimited amount of victims. Some of the scenes are graphic and disturbing, but Andrade handles them so adeptly that I suspect he either has a background in psychology or perhaps should see somebody who does.
Either way, I very much recommend The Educator.
Mr. Andrade crafts a compelling tale leaving one hoping for a sequel, although the bloody rage may call for a new cast of characters. I highly recommend The Educator. It's a solid read- graphic, dark, and fun; a controversy in the making.

Well worth the time to read. Brought back memories of Neil Stephenson's The Big U but without the story spiraling into nonsense.
