Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hilarious and catching This book is a page turner. It starts off with introducing different characters in each chapter who all intertwine. The main character, Charlotte Simmons is a very intelligent young woman from the middle of nowhere who ventures out and goes to university. Hoping to get away from the typical ways of sex, alcohol and immaturity to find people who think like her, she runs into these obstacles like never before! You feel sorry for her sometimes but mostly you just want her to go out and have fun and stop forcing herself to be an individual! It's well worth the read!
