    One thought on “Ruminations on College Life”

    1. Hilarious. I've re-read this several times, and pulled quotes from it several times too. Something for everyone with campus life, party life, study abroad, coming home for break life, etc.

    2. College!If you know a well adjusted white guy on Long Island who just turned 18, finished his senior year of college, this is the book to give him as a going away present.In my slightly wounded state of being out of college a year a missing is dreadfully, this book reminds me of the little quaint occurrences you might notice throughout college. Nothing that'll make or break your life - it's just what college is to the typical guy.I laugh a bit and did have some good memories. The bottom line is [...]

    3. If I could give this a 2.5 I would. It wasn't horrible, I guess I just wanted it to be better. I love the Ruminations E-mails. And I've even seen Aaron Karo's stand up and stayed out way to late with him on a school night (when i had to go to real job the next day!) But this wasn't all that funny. I guess his emails just seem so spontaneous and funny. That said, there were a few parts that definitely laughed out loud at. Maybe I'm just too old to laugh at how crazy I was in college or something? [...]

    4. This is the most amusing thing I've read in a long time. Amusing, because I don't suppose I should just believe everything the man has to say. I guess it differs from one person to another. But even if there were cultural differences and such, one can still relate to the things in the book - the situation, the reactions, even the dialogues. It's a very pleasurable read. :)

    5. The musings, anecdotes and events of a very interesting young man's four years at college. The beginning is very funny because he is having a bunch of very universal experiences and encountering all sorts of people. The later part of the book was only so much fun because it was almost all about drinking. I can only relate so much since college was more to me than just alcohol.

    6. This book has it's funny moments. It's funny for people that are almost done with college or people that are done with college. A lot of the things that I did in college I found in this book and it was just hilarious that virtually every college campus, whether big ten or ivy league 'throws down' exactly the same. Seeing his stand-up, he was virtually the same as he was in the book.

    7. This book is a horrible representation of college students. It makes students sound like they are all irresponsible and stupid. It also reinforces negative stereotypes about greek life. Not all students and greeks act like this

    8. The author writes about his four years in college.Hilarious, and very apt. A little disjointed, but the humor makes up for it.

    9. Very funny book. His obervational humor make him the Seinfeld of college. Books are much better than his standup
