Reviews - What do customers think about Stover at Yale?

A forgotten classic  Aug 5, 2008
At one time this 1900ish book was considered THE classic tale of a college man's growing up at school. It's now forgotten, but not for good reason. Read it with just a teensy bit of sympathy for a different era...and you'll find that Johnson has a liberal perceptive appreciation for human nature...which really hasn't changed that much over time.

The book recounts Dink Stover, a star prep school ballplayer, and his struggle between conforming to expectations of the in crowd and doing what he thinks right. This is much more than a simple choice as Johnson shows well how Stover is impelled to rebel, but also drawn by desire for fame and even love towards conforming.

The book is also just great fun. Everything from the drinking antics to the football heroics is enjoyable to read.

WARNING: This book can be read without reading THE VARMINT (part of THE LAWRENCEVILLE STORIES) first, but you'll miss a perspective on Dink that will endear him more to you if you do so (he has some tough times in prep school as well). So I advise to read TLS first. Then SAY.
