Review of "Stone Angels"
College life is the backdrop for the story which is the complex psyche of Augustine Shaw. Shaw, Ben and Duncan share a room their freshman year, but Duncan becomes Shaw's nemesis and does everything he can to infuriate Shaw, including insulting his girlfriend, Lily. At a party one night, Lily has too much to drink and is egged on to drink more by Shaw. The result is death by alcohol poisoning, and Shaw blames himself. The testosterone-fueled feud continues and erupts in a fight behind a bar where Duncan is killed by some thugs after Shaw leaves him unconscious. Shaw accepts the blame for his death. Finally, on the ride home from the Florida Keys on senior spring break, Shaw finds the way to release the guilt and hopefully change his life. 4 stars
