Review: The Idiot

The Idiot
The Idiot by Elif Batuman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book! Selin, the 19 year old Turkish-American main character is quirky, smart and confused about life and love. She is so exactly an 18 year old college freshman – smart, but ignorant, rebellious and conformist. I had near-constant flashbacks to myself at the same age. The book is also really, really funny in places. Selin’s dry wit and acerbic commentary on all that’s going on around her are fantastic.
