By the end of Prep, I thought, "Why am I listening to this girl tell her story? She has clearly not grown from the time she arrived to graduation. What is the moral to this story from Sittenfeld?"for the most part, Prep is what one thinks will be a coming of age story about a young girl who is ambitious enough to know to get out of her Indiana town and on to something better. But, in the end, the listener realizes she is so insular, she never unfolds from her shell. This leaves the listener unfulfilled and wishing for some hours of their life back. The long dragged out ending of the ruined what could have been salvaged from this wreckage but by the end, graduation couldn't come soon enough.
This book is the biggest waste of time. What could've been a great tale with a wonderful cast of characters slowly lumbers to be one of the biggest snores of the year. When it ended I was so disappointed, and shocked because it was so sudden, yet elated to be done with this horrible little town.
the characters are well painted for the listener.
