Review Freshers

Freshers

Parties lots of sex lots of very bad behaviour He's naughty witty and compassionate and everyone wants to be his friend But often than not Kit withholds that friendship and retreats from the gangThe gang includes Benny Bull a pathological liar from Dudley who associates with drug dealers car jackers Al uaida and the IRA if only in his head There's Adrian Dangerous an achievement driven fitness fanatic from Kent who has to get a First Alex is a ballsy exchange student from Memphis who's utterly at ease with her unorthodox looks and keen to stress that carrots h I bought this book because I was looking for something funny and relevent to the university experience but I was let down by it after only fourty pages Largely as a result of personal taste I must hasten to add grammatically the book was well written and the description and characters were very convincingThe book suffers from a problem that turns me off of some books the feeling that the main character is someone s w fantasy The main character of this book goes on about how women are just bound to find him attractive so he d better avoid socialising altogether because he doesn t want to attract them like moths to his flame He talks about how good his arse looks in cords and a great deal teenage boy drivel He s at uni to learn not to meet people and his vocabulary is amazingly enourmous something the reader can t fail to notice as out of place words are used on every page I flicked through the book to see if the nauseating idiot got his comeuppance or even changed at all only to find that pretty much every page I landed on was a description of a wet dream or sexual experience why two women would fawn over this moron I have no idea and the main character taking cocaineI have no problem with any of these things they re actually reasons why I might BUY a book but the main character was so awful that I left this book on top of a bin for someone else to find Hopefully a fifteen year old male virgin because that s who this was clearly intended for

Ave feelings too Laid back Simon from the Peak District wants nothing than to get by start a band and find that mythic mushroom field at Whitehood Hall Petra from Stirling wants nothing than Kit although Kit tragically seems to see her as a mate The object of his affections is Colette yet whenever Kit gets close to her something seems to hold him back Jinty and the experience of surviving away from home for the first time in his life help him confront himself and beat his demons Freshers is a rich insightful and exuberant novel about getting wise and growing up This is an OK read especially if you are familiar with the city of Sheffield as the book is set there and you can identify with the streets and pubs A lot of the characters are uite funny satires of the type of people you meet at university The only downside for me was there are a couple of uite dark themes involved in this book whilst a lot of the tone is light hearted and I found it difficult to switch moods I think it would have been better toned to be like Starter For Ten by David Nicholls funny with a few poignant insights in to common struggles of student life rather than being as dark as this in parts That said it is worth the read I think students would like it
