    This was a disappointing read I was a big fan of Overachievers, and while Pledged was not as interesting, it was still a decent read The latest book from Robbins, however, was a huge let down It was almost painful to read, carrying on for pages and pages about Yale history, reciting old poems, and other stories only peripherally relating to the Skull and Bones society It seemed like she...

    Robbins Secrets of the Tomb has a wonderful thesis but the reader won t be quite sure what that is exactly until the book s last three pages Therefore, the work is extremely unorganized and confusing Had Robbins reorganized her work and offered the reader better guidance, Robbins really could have written something very profound by capitalizing off of the power of imagery and running with it Instead, the book comes off as a hodgepodge of questionable statements and out of place personal expe Robbins Secrets of the Tomb has a wonderful thesis but the reader won t be quite sure what th...
