Ok, now this is what I’m talking about! This would probably fall under the category of just-for-fun read, or easy-beach read, etc. And it is, sure. But it has enough depth and story to keep you interested and make you want to root for/be friends with the characters. I like that. I like all my fictional friends. Don’t judge me.
Commencement is, at its core, a simple story about four women who meet in college and remain friends throughout their early adult lives. They are different enough women that I feel it’s safe to say that the author, J. Courtney Sullivan, has a real talent for voicing very different points of view. The book is funny, irreverent, emotional, and engaging. Since the characters met at an all women college many of the interesting (and often funny) ideals in feminism come up while the characters discover who they are and engage in various relationships.
I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun but engaging weekend read. It’s a good one. For realz.
Did I just loose all credibility with you by using the word “realz?” Yes? Oh dear.
