Fiction • 31 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Famous for showcasing little-noticed social groups and movements, Wolfe turns his unrelenting eyes on college life in the twenty-first century, as beautiful and brilliant Charlotte Simmons, from rural North Carolina, enters a prestigious university on full scholarship. It's brains versus status as fun and frolic prevail. Listeners may relive their own adolescent angst as Charlotte survives and triumphs most (but not all) of the time. Reader Dylan Baker captures and keeps the listener's attention, presenting characters who become real people as Wolfe suggests the question: Will these anarchical conditions prevail, or should we try to return to the older system of stated limits? Bonus: An enlightening interview with Wolfe follows the book's conclusion. L.C. 2005 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
