Blog tour : The Final Weekend

In the last days before the real world, six college friends prepare to take a bow in epic fashion.

After Sunday there’s just Harry, the future business owner; Justin, the medical intern; Trent, the hapless wanderer; and Clarence, soon to don the badge and blues. But now they have years of memories to honor, all packed into one weekend. Will they grow into their new adult roles? Will they go out in style with the girls? Will the four of them even survive the sheer level of debauchery?

Living in an apartment paid for by the Grandma, an ex-hooker turned millionaire, Courtney and Ling-Ling couldn’t be more opposite, yet are completely inseparable. Courtney and Harry have been hooking up for years, neither able to commit, but their imminent separation is about to test that arrangement, and Ling-Ling’s never-ending reciprocated crush on Justin just might become more than that.

Their lives intersect with that of Professor Goodkat, their idolized instructor who never quite “left” college himself. In Goodkat, we find the consequence of getting to live out a hedonist fantasy, and the possibility for change in anyone.

Hilarious, raunchy and uninhibited, "The Final Weekend: A Stoned Tale," captures contemporary society while chronicling the dreams, regrets, perspectives, and future after youth in an unbroken sequence of shockingly touching exploits. No longer armed with the excuse of college stupidity, these friends will go on a journey with higher stakes than a night out has ever had. Because there are things about themselves that blacking out can’t erase

This is shelved as comedy and satire. And it is but also shows the college frat life with sex, partying, the yolo life and more sexual exploits. I had to roll my eyes at the character jokes and laughed at other moments. Such a mix bag for me personally. The title is structured with multiple POV. It jumps between about 5 characters. I liked some better than others but I would never want any of them to be in my live. Character aren't always to be liked but they are spoiled college kids. If profanity and sex isn't for I'd say skip. I read through the book being ace, that's an experience. The writing is solid and readable. It was a slice of life story with an something ending that's unexpected. I'll leave it at that. This book will find an audience
