I am Charlotte Simmons

I am Charlotte Simmons - Tom Wolfe I've given up an hour and twenty two minutes into this audiobook. After an amusing initial episode following the thoughts of a college kid who is evidently destined to become the modern Sherman McCoy/master of the universe, it's been nothing but unbearable adolescent whining, self-pity, and angst from the title character. I can't possibly spend another 29 hours on this audiobook. Just, no.
