I felt transported into a world that was not overtly familiar to me but covertly, it hit the spot. It was like a 5 course meal that you savor, looking forward to tasting more depth of all sorts. Fantastic emotional studies.
actually they're studying ancient Greek, and their social bond is a sense of superiority over the other students as well as local working-class people, and they do horrible things over the course of 1 school year, told from point of view of an incoming freshman who pretends to be rich like them because he admires their inhumane snobbery and is bored and ashamed of his own background.
