I wanted to read Among The Bros by Max Marshall, mostly, because I love to see the elite face the consequences of their actions. I’m not sure that was accomplished here.

Max Marshall did his research, documented at the end of the book. He did give me many details, but the writing didn’t get me involved. I felt it was like reading a text book. It’s hard to relate to characters who feel they are entitled, that no matter what they do it’s no big deal. Just boys having fun.

I felt Max Marshall glossed over rape and murder, concentrating on the drugs and the never ending parties at the College of Charleston.

I find it interesting that so many Fortune 500 executives, Supreme Court Justices, and presidents have been fraternity members. What does that say about them, especially after reading a book like Among The Bros. AND that is why I love to read a book like Among The Bros. Is all the secrecy surrounding fraternities because the members do not want the members actions exposed? How far is too far?

The book left a bad taste in my mouth….and I expected that, so Max did deliver.

I have to say, I'm not as shocked by this story as I should be. It's another rich, privileged college bro tale of fraternity brothers doing exactly as they please and not considering the consequences. The main reason anyone in the story was held accountable was because of a murder than happened to someone involved. It feels like otherwise, it would have been swept under the rug or let slide. It makes me sad to think about how many things these guys could have accomplished if they had used their smarts and ingenuity for upstanding pursuits instead of selling xanax to their friends and frat brothers.… (mere)
