    This gem of a book is an incisive almost anthropological portrayal of life on a elite American university campus Most of what the students at these universities take for granted the cosmopolitanism of the student body the gleaming buildings endowed with enormous donations from alumni the natural encounters with award winning researchers the bottomless coffers for student travel abroad and on campus activities etc is subtly hinted at throughout the text The author's greatest achievement has been creating an Ivy League campus that is so believable with its centuries old traditions and its millennial overachieving students that we forget it came out of Aitsahalia's imaginationAs for Jason the main character he is both detestable with his condescending attitude and need for no one and endearing not only because of what happens to him throughout the novel but also because we learn of all the troubles he went through to get where he is This is the best portrayal of the daily challenges of a character with Asperger's I've seen since The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime Idir Aitsahalia
