During his sophomore year at college, Charlie is assigned to keep a journal. He can't imagine finding something to write about every day. After all, his life isn't very exciting. He goes to class in the morning, then drives home to make lunch for Grandma. She's been living with Charlie and his mother for over a year now. The rest of the family gave up on her. Charlie's trying not to, but it's hard to be optimistic when she's still using a commode.

Written in journal entries, The Prosaic Journal of an Aspiring Writer, tells the story of Charlie's confrontation with cancer. One year removed from chemotherapy, Grandma struggles to regain her strength. Charlie and his mother walk beside her. They make her meals and give her baths. They endure the daily burden with the hope of one day rediscovering the pleasures of dinner at Grandma's house. Charlie's journal becomes his savior, a place to vent his frustrations. Comfort lies not only in his purging of raw emotion but also in the humorous observations his extracts from his daily routine. Were it not for his ability to laugh, Charlie might have given up a long time ago.

This was a pretty interesting peek into someone's mind... but I wouldn't say it was a look into how young adults/teens think, because I think the main character is exceptionally witty...
But compared to other young adult books I have read... this is far more realistic. Read this in one evening (both times I read it).

If you've ever wanted to read the diary of a college-aged young man, this is your chance, but be prepared. It doesn't deliver the title's promise. It is everything except dull and mundane. Instead, it is colorful, poignant, and insightful, giving voice to emotions you will never forget.

Apparently based upon an original journal, we catch up with the main character, Charlie, in the middle of becoming a man. He goes to college, he lives at home, he dreams, he hopes, he cries and he pulls himself back together every day to go back in fighting. At every turn, I would stop to wonder, is this what my son would think? How do I feel about that? Then, I would return because I was worried about Charlie. Would he get the girl? Would his team win? Would he ever write the Great American screenplay? Would Grandma make it to the toilet in time?

Charlie, the protagonist, is a little bit Calvin and Hobbes and a little bit Freud. He's the age he is and he knows he should be entitled to the usual pursuits of youth. Poignantly, he suffers from role conflict, which never eases up and disallows any lingering in the usual fantasy world young men are expected to inhabit. This portrayal, in journal-entry style, of the dynamics and struggles of his tiny family are so touching that I often teared up. He has big dreams, but repeatedly must find the courage inside himself to go on when the realities, the money and the support, fall short. Then, just when I worried that he would wallow in self-pity, he mans up and laughs it off. Over the course of the journal entries, Charlie slowly comes to grips with his fate, developing a personal philosophy which is at once pragmatic, sarcastic, Eyore-gloomy and, triumphantly hilarious.

"Prosaic Journal" is "The Catcher in the Rye" in college, but with more wit, brains and relevance. Thanks to it, I will never look at college-aged young men the same way again. Yes, they are potty-mouthed, but Charlie exposes their soft underbellies. It made me realize that their struggles are largely overlooked or worse, reduced to anecdotes at a time when, as Charlie demonstrates, they need support the most. Thank you, Eric, for this window into the mind of a young man nearly lost in the shuffling process of becoming.

This book, done in a journal format, follows a young college student through a year of his life and his interactions with friends and family. The author allows you to feel his emotions and reactions. He shares it all - from his struggles with caring for an ailing grandmother(overwhelming and depressing), the interactions with friends (fitting in, fun and so much more), to a search for toothpicks (hilarious). An eye opening read for a parent and professional who working with teens for over 20 years.
