After a fight with her boyfriend Amanda Greene has a few too many drinks with her friends and finds herself waking up in her dorm room with a stranger claiming to be her roommate and a class schedule that doesn’t fit what she signed up for. And then after a failed attempt to get out of the history class she finds herself forced into the lecture hall but doesn’t recognize a single person.
The History Major is a novella length story that is somewhat like reading an episode of the Twilight Zone. Amanda wakes up with all of her surroundings seeming somewhat like normal but all of the people and places are just not adding up to her normal daily life. Her friends and boyfriend are no where to be found. The school staff is a bit off when she tries to change her schedule and then she’s tossed into an outrageous history class with an teacher dressed as Aristotle.
In the short length the author packs in quite a bit of history tidbits along with a unique story. A somewhat dark tale that forces the main character to deal with her upsetting past and look into her own life through the association of events in history. As a reader I wasn’t quite sure where the story was taking me and found myself continuously guessing at just what was happening and how it would all turn out until the end.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
