2009 book 180

Colin McAdam's Fall
Ugh, this book was so cliche-ridden. A weird loner type ends up rooming with the most popular boy at boarding school and is in crazy love with the roommate's girlfriend, and it's told in alternating chapters and the roommate's are just this awful stream-of-consciousness drivel. It's billed as a sort of mystery, as the girlfriend disappears, except that happens right near the end of the book and there's no mystery to it. Why is this getting good reviews? D.
