I found that it started with the philosophy of the antagonist being pushed into every other character however I found the last 3 quarters of the book very good.
Flipping between past, present, and journal entries, Krans hooks readers with a mystery ... why Chris' best friend and roommate killed himself. Then Krans leads readers on an adventure on how Chris and Ethan met and what kind of trouble they seemed to run into.
Krans' strength is painting the vivid and all-too-real college experience ... from meeting a cute girl to his first college party to his first sexual experience to hanging out with Ethan and the First Prentiss guys. Not only do readers get a glimpse of college life from a guy's point of view, but can believe the tales. I found myself laughing out loud several times at Chris' dialogue ("Chris will puke.")
The one weakness I had was the journal entries were a little long, mundane, and a little abstract. OK, I have another weakness ... the shortness of the book. I would have loved to read more characters and tales from college.
Overall, the book was a good read, where I needed to know why Ethan killed himself. Krans tells a good story with humour, insightfulness, and truth. I look forward to his second novel.
