Review: The History Major

The History Major The History Major by Michael Phillip Cash
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

One more book that I don't know how to rate. It is impeccably written, but I did not care at all for the main character, and the setting seemed too far fetched at first. It's only in the final pages that I understood what this book was about, and even if it is short, a novella, I found it disconcerting to not understand what it was about.

The main story is as follows:
Amanda Greene is a college student who one day wakes up with a massive hangover, only to find out she has a roommate she's never seen before and has to attend classes she never registered for, in a strange campus where something like a ghost lurks in the buildings and gardens

She's had a fight with her boyfriend (and constantly moans and whines about missing him) and grudgingly attends a History seminar, where the lecturer is none other than Aristotle. She also whines all the time about History being a major waste of time. Not very endearing, right? And let's not talk about her girlfriends, who all fit the description of mean girls perfectly.

During this lecture, Amanda is "transported" to the world of Lucrezia Borgia, Jeanne d'Arc and Eva Braun.

Why? That is for the reader to find out, no spoilers here.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
