A Humorous Read!

by Icewoman on Jul 13, 2007

Lucky Jim is the story of James Dixon as he struggles to overcome his vices and find his voice. Unexpected turns and humorous twists bring the reader into the story of this born loser, struggling within the education system. This book is highly recommended for its entertaining commentary on the generational gap in colleges and universities, which is perhaps as applicable today as it was at the book's post-WWII release.
