    Knowles really is a genius

    Anyone who's ever been a teenage boy understands this story of how certain people are able to get away with things that others never could. The way this book ended took me back to my high school days and how the popular crowd could get away with nearly anything, probably even murder. It is this type of person that is able to get ahead in life by dishonesty and led Shakespeare to say things like 'Take note, take note o world, to be direct and honest is not safe.' and 'To be honest as this world goes, is to be one man picked out of ten thousand.' By making this point clear, this book is sad but true.

    John Knowles

    With the same skill he used in A Separate Peace, John Knowles has created another outstanding novel. It is comforting to return to the Devon school to find it unchanged. Once again, we deal with the feelings that lie deeper between people called ¿friends¿. Mr. Knowles shows us the scheming and impulsive sides of teenage boys. The time period is perfect timing for a sequel, and Devon remains the same in this unique story. Though the boys¿ personalities are nothing new to us, the incidents that take place make this book not only a wonderful companion, but a novel good enough to stand on its own.

    Superior sequel

    Here is the rare instance when the sequel is better than the original. The characterization seems stronger this time. Even though coincidence has made this the unluckiest school in memory, the plot is solid with a believable conflict of ideologies at its center. A quick and satisfying read.

    Amazing

    This book is a wonderful companion to A Seperate Peace. John Knowels style and vocabulary are much more advanced then A Seperate Peace, but it is definiately worth the read.
