    1. This is a modern story with classic "great books" flair. Mangiaforte fleshes out the students at St.Albas so completely, leaving it up to you to decide who you should be rooting for or against. An excellent read, and once the ball got rolling I didn't want to put it down!


    2. I actually only read a few pages. It was awful. Was intrigued because I went to St Andrews but this book was so badly written I would have burned it if I wasn't reading it on my ereader.
