    CHARACTERS Ë Private Citizens Private CitizensI loved reading this hopelessly self aware wonderfully erudite and viciously satirical novel about a uartet of earnest screw up millennials This book is wall to wall observations asides and digressions on the nature of personal identity in a digital age It’s almost too clever by half and I had to re read it immediately after finishing it to figure out how I

    CHARACTERS Ë Private Citizens Private CitizensI'll admit that the premise of this book didn't immediately hook me Reading self conscious accounts about how ridiculous my generation is generally grates on me I don't need to be reminded of how hypocritical and narcissistic millennials can be When I first dove in my initial fears were confirmed the book opens with four college friends all failing at adulting in some specific way complete with jaded scenes of drug use meaningless sex internet speak and references to the mile wide inch thick support for myriad social justice causes Somewhere along the way though I fell head over heels for Tulathimutte's fast paced fancy vocabulary banter and for his deeply flawed characters Though it took the characters longer to get where they were trying to

    CHARACTERS Ë Private Citizens Private CitizensThe writing was very good brilliant even But the characters and their constant unceasing self indulgent whining and self pity was pretty unbearable And they are my age so I can't blame generational gaps for ahting them None of them evoked empathy I just wanted to tell them to shut up and stop blaming everyone and everything for their own self manufactured misery The worst part is that ever

    CHARACTERS Ë Private Citizens Private CitizensI really wanted to like this book Set in San Francisco it had me interested in advance Unfortunately I had a number of issues with the book and at this point let me say I am not sure to what extent it is because I am an old fogey and too far removed from the millennial generation that are the characters in this novel To discern the extent to which that is the case I am sending my copy to my 30 year old son for his feeling about it I found the characters to be solipsistic and conseuently not deserving of empathy I like

    CHARACTERS Ë Private Citizens Private CitizensFirst appeared at I could nominate an alternate title for this incredibly well written smart debut novel it'd be Hot Mess Millennials Make Increasingly Bad Decisions I really dug this book because to me the only thing better than reading about one character who can't get out of hisher own way is FOUR characters for which that's true And that's what we have here Four recent Stanford grads try to navigate their treacherous 20s in San Francisco to vastly varying degrees of successI liked this book because it elevates itself well above the familiar theme of life is hard when you're young and stupid For one stories like this almost always takes place in New York – so seeing this one unfold amidst the tech boom of mid 2000s San Francisco was fascinating Secondly the characters in this type of story are often good people st

    CHARACTERS Ë Private Citizens Private CitizensPrivate Citizens was amazing At first it was like reading an infinite scroll of UC Berkeley confessions even though the characters are post grads of another Cali school Stanford vapid at some points keenly millennial in voice then other points verging into sublime solipsisms of genius Also have you ever read a book and every so of
