I was amused with the mischievousness of these school boys. It looks like a simple story at first, then came the war and their happy adolescence ended. The novel has beautifully portrayed the psychological and social development impact of the dawning war on those happy-go-lucky school boys. Military draft, war thoughts, patriotism, & after-war dreams.

It is a beautiful sad story. The friendship, admiration, rivalry & betrayal that happened between Gene & Finny summed up the "sad" part.
