WOOOOOOOOOOW! I’m in love. Like actually in love. And yes, with a book. I already said it on da gram but now I want to study history, spent autumn days outside with my friends and …murder? Well, obviously I don’t want to kill anyone but my annoying neighbors who somehow think it’s a good idea to vacuum-clean there entire flat at six in the morning. It is not a good idea if you want to stay alive but hey! go on … take away my sleep and see how I’ll react.
Even if I’m not the type of a person who likes studying, still I really want to learn some ancient greek now (I actually already have a hard time with latin but ya know. It’s going to be different this time I promise). And spending autumn days with my dear friends? always. a l w a y s.
Anyway, I think this is the magic of a well written book: That It puts your in a special mood where you just want to do anything the main characters do (except drugs and murder 🙁 ). And guys this book IS WELL WRITTEN. More than that. it’s probably the best book ever (if we exclude Nina LaCour and Alice Oseman). It gives you all the dark academica vibes and is also beautiful to just look at. So I guess you should just buy it and enjoy an amazing plot with deep Sherlock Holmes like characters and a lot of alcohol and drug abuse (yay.).
Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of normal morality they slip gradually from obsession to corruption and betrayal, and at last – inexorably – into evil.
