did not like it
Recommended to Rachel by: had to read it for school
Recommended for: no idea... i don't remember much of it
Read in August, 2001

I MIGHT give this one another shot. I had to read it as a summer assignment, which I had to do for entering high school, and I was only 14. Along with my age, I had the attention-span of a gnat. As I read along, I half-expected the main characters to either kill each other or embark on a steamy homosexual affair. Maybe if one of those two things happened within the first 20 pages, I would've finished it. But alas, I was not so lucky, haha.

Anyway this is a bogus review because I don't remember enough of it to give my concrete opinion. I only remember my 14 year-old self being bored.

Sooo in all fairness, I'll probably give it another chance. If anyone wants to tell me why "A Separate Peace" is in-fact a good book, you're free to leave a comment and tell me why. :)
