There is not really much to say about this one. It was extremely disappointing and underwhelming. It took a lot of patience and sighs to finish this one. I finished the book with so many unanswered questions. It has a very good description that makes it sound interesting.
However, once you dive into the book you find that it truly does not deliver. And I’m honestly not trying to be rude, it just wasn’t the best thing I’ve read. But it also wasn’t the worst.
The problem was that it was a frustrating read filled with entitled immature characters. They are all at least 21 years old. As a 22-year-old myself, I would figure that they would have a higher maturity level.
The characters actions were off-putting. For example, why was Rob so freaked out about Jo’s tampons? And also why did he open them all and put them all over their yard as an attempt to get her to move out? I get that his girlfriend was the “jealous type” and he was afraid of how she would react when she found that he had a girl for a roommate, but that was extreme. And if I’m being honest, this book was highly extreme and blew a lot of things out of proportion.
Another problem I had was that so many things made absolutely no sense. I’m able to suspend my disbelief, but there are times when you can only suspend so much before you fall off a cliff in head into territory called What the Heck alley.
For example, how did A.J. make it four years of college without flunking out? Money can’t buy everything; especially when most core classes for majors require that you make at least a C in the previous classes. And I’m supposed to believe that he generated enough knowledge to succeed in the future.
This book felt like an over the top comedy show that tried to be relatable and do anything for the laughs.
