College life can be tough…
For a junior pursuing a degree in English with no plans for his future, living in the present is far better than the alternative.
One morning he wakes up and embarks on an acid trip to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts with two of his friends.
A step outside reality might be the best way to come back down to earth…
Along the way, the three friends discover what matters most to them, and more importantly, that life is not so much about answers as it is about the exploration of the questions.
When the real world doesn’t quite cut it, take a journey down the rabbit hole. 


Being a junior college student can be a bit daunting. Why? For this is the time where you’ve got to think about the future, about the career you’ll land into and a lot more about your life. I’ve shared the same sentiments before, though it was different, for I’ve got to feel that anxiety earlier, which was on my last year of High School. (yeah, that early eh)

And this book will make you realize a lot of things. Will provide awesome realization with a great addition of humor which makes this book too interesting for you to just drop.

Before anything else, I would like to thank the author, Ian, for inviting me to read this latest book of his and construct an honest review about it. When he first informed me about the book, I was really thrilled for I really liked his previous book, entitled the Five College Dialogues, you can read the review here.

Honestly, when I was just starting the book, I really find it a bit boring. Maybe because I can’t relate to its topic. I’ve never tried LSD or any other kind of drugs before. But what’s really interesting in this book, is that all we’re properly explained. So all the confusion I felt in its first few chapters we’re all answered.

Unlike Five College Dialogues, this one doesn’t just contain dialogues. All scenes we’re properly written and I salute the author for using very easy to grasp terms. And all the characters we’re very easy to keep track of because they we’re all properly introduced. Everybody knows how a sucker I am for dialogues, but this book makes me like it even with just a little dialogue.

And what makes this book outstanding is that, it doesn’t just share plain story, but it share a story in an entertaining way. I can’t count how many times I make myself look stupid for laughing out loud in the middle of the crowd while reading it. (I read everywhere, even when I’m walking, haha)

I also can’t help but think that this book was written base on the author’s adventure? I don’t know, but I can’t help on thinking that. One reason would be the physical appearance of the main character. He sure is a long haired specie too, and also, a shark-whale stuff animal was mentioned a lot of times in this book. (It’s no secret how fanatic Ian for stuff animals. How do I know? Because I’m a genius, haha)

So any spoiler to share? Sorry guys, but I’m not gonna share any bummer for this book. 😛 But I assure you, this is a great book to read. Highly recommended to everyone especially to graduating students. Enjoy!

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
