    Campusland is way over the top satirical It's witty and funny but so over the top so in your face constant with the satire that I'd had enough pretty early in the book and this is with me agreeing with a lot of the messages that the author seemed to be conveying Despite being over the top and too much for me some of the fictional characters base their actions on real life happenings The politics in the book are true to life but there's just so much of it with no relief in sight This book has gotten a lot of four and five stars so I suggest checking out some of those reviews before deciding not to read the book My college years were many decades ago so I couldn't relate to much in the book I did like the much maligned characters of Eph and is girlfriend but they were about the only likeable characters for me Thank you to St Martin's Press and NetGalley for this ARC
