When Tyson Marie moves into his college's dorm, he encounters a life driven by excess and rarely interrupted by class or schoolwork. The eighteen-year-old boy maneuvers through the drug scene collecting stories of hilarious characters, sexy parties and public intoxication. And those are just weekdays. But as missed classes, failing grades and broken relationships pile up in the rear-view mirror, Tyson begins to question the value of it all. Amusing, unpretentious, and enthusiastically true to life, Tyson Marie's inaugural book showcases the casual sex, unmitigated drug use and sobering confusion that accompanies your average college student's experience. Written with a creative flair, it will leave you feeling like a fly on the wall of a room you would never want to take your shoes off in
Four Boundless Stars
I was offered I Should Have Gone to Community College in exchange for an honest review. This is a published journal of a young man journey through his first year of college. First of all, I want to inform potential readers; if you’re expecting some type of inspirational coming of age story, filled with deep contemplations of the meaning of life, ultimately resulting in a meaningful lesson on what matters in life, don’t. This is the exact opposite of this.
Tyson takes readers through the year with genuine dialog you would expect from a barely successful college student; complete with crudeness, profanity, and a little too much information about what a 19 year old boy does to occupy his solitary time. If you are easily offended by profanity, or the talk of self-satisfaction, pass on this one.
With that being said; if you just want a book for a relaxing read with no purpose other than pure entertainment, this is your book. You will laugh out loud during the entire book. He is honestly genuine with his writing so be prepared for anything while reading this book.
The writing is good with enough explanations to keep readers understanding, the imagery is sufficient, not bad for a “non-english” major so I give it 4 stars.
