The Devil and Webster

61OBs5Mx6IL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_The Devil and Webster by Jean Hanff Korelitz was a good choice after a bunch of abandoned starts (The Power, The Last Castle – both of which I was really excited to read and neither of which I could get into – 2018’s motto is “Life is too Short to Waste Time on a Book I Don’t Immediately Love”). But I digress. The Devil and Webster centers around Naomi, the President of Webster College, who has a difficult student protest on her hands. Korelitz repeated herself a few too many times during the story – we really understand how supportive Naomi is of student dissent since her own college days, for example, because this information was repeated multiple times. But, the ending wasn’t exactly what I suspected and, other than too much repetition on certain details, it was an enjoyable read.
