    1. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/“My name is Jerry Renault and I’m not going to sell the chocolates.”The Chocolate War is probably one of those books that ends up getting a low rating since it gets crammed down the throats of high school kids in their literature classes. As the mother of a child who is currently being forced to read “a book about girls who do nothing but talk about cute guys” (Spoiler Alert: Marie Antoinette Serial Killer), I WISH his required reading was somet [...]

    2. This is one of my favorite books. I never read it as a kid, but I've read it several times now as an adult and it's still so beautiful. The writing is stark and concise, and so is the story, which is one of the most difficult plots to describe. This is one of those where you talk about the theme more than the actual story: "It's the best book about good and evil that exists," you tell someone, after trying to outline a chocolate sale at a religious boy's school that ends in a sadistic boxing fig [...]

    3. I grew up in the next town over from where Robert Cormier lived. They were nothing towns. We went to the same college. It was a nothing college. But here was this writer with a famous book from my neighborhood! Sooner or later I had to read this.The Chocolate War is about boys at an all-boys Catholic prep school forming cliques and getting their kicks by kicking the shit out of their fellow students mentally and physically. This could've been an English novel.Cormier does an excellent job at cap [...]

    4. Do I dare disturb the universe?from a poster that hangs in Jerry Renault's school lockerMy youngest son started high school this year, and while that makes me feel old, old, OLD, I'm relieved that for the first time since kindergarten, he is not expected to sell stuff for his school. This year, I will not be forced to buy any crappy wrapping paper, or magazine subscriptions, or any overpriced chocolate for Easter. This is all voluntary, of course. Children don't have to participate. But they are [...]

    5. What a interesting and strange little book! I read it because I remembered hearing about people reading it back when I was in middle school/high school. I think it may have been required reading for some English classes, but I am not sure. It definitely has the feel of some other books I had to read for school (specifically Lord of the Flies) and I could see it appealing to a teenager more than some of the other required reading we had.This book was released in 1974 and has to be one of the earl [...]

    6. I know this is considered important juv. lit. and amazing, but I disliked it very much. I can recognize that the whole point was to make you hate the fact that there is evil in the world and even you can become desensitized or mentally manipulated (the author is manipulating the reader, overall, and wants the reader to finally recognize it and question it at the end). However, this book portrays women as nothing but sex-objects (only briefly bringing women or girls into the picture for this purp [...]

    7. Not to boast, but for almost the past 15 years I've read more than a hundred books a year. I only mention that fact to show the relatively late start that I got on serious reading. Sure I read quite a bit when I was younger, but I kind of went from reading Encyclopedia Brown and The Hardy Boys straight to reading god-awful books about commandos and then to a steady diet of Horror. I wanted to read better books, but I had no guidance in the matter and from my experiences with Literature in High S [...]

    8. Here's the deal people, yesterday I was heating up my lunch in the kitchenette at work and had this book with me (because I was planning to read during lunch) and another woman asks me what the book is about. I tell her it's the story of this kid who refuses to sell chocolates at his high school, and then I realize that this sounds like the stupidest book in the world--why would anyone care about reading about fund-raising? I'll tell you why ladies and gentleman--because this book isn't about a [...]

    9. This book is one of the most censored books in the country for young adults. I read it for my censorship lesson for my lit class and I was honestly frightened of what I would find but it was easily one of the most haunting and well-written books I have ever read. Cormier is a genius of writing with layers. It's a deceptively easy read; easy in that I finished it in 2 days, deceptive in that I could read it again and come away reading something different. Brother Leon is truly evil. His example w [...]

    10. Disturbing My Universe(A Book Review of The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier)I’m writing this review in anguish and in tears.At first I couldn’t imagine myself getting interested about this kid who refuses to sell chocolates during a school’s annual fund-raising event. But as the pages were turned all too quickly, I find myself deeply engrossed, on the edge of my seat, clinging on to every word, anticipating each chapter with bated breath. I suppose The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier elude [...]

    11. Oh god. You know? I honestly wish I could remember cool things from high school English, but whenever my roommate and I embark down memory lane, all I whine about is this book. What can I say about "The Chocolate War?" (Spoilers ahead, folks!)It stinks. No seriously. Jerry's musings about "disturbing the universe" (poor T.S. Eliot) put me to sleep and I honestly couldn't wait for the school's secret society to knock the ever lovin' crap out of him. I may also be missing some grand message, but I [...]

    12. The bleak viciousness that is this novel made me really really anxious and depressed. I couldn’t wait until it was over. I skimmed the whole final chapter and I've been doing my breathing exercises for the past couple of hours to rid myself of the bad chemicals that are pumping through my body.Ultimately this book is about:How evil pervadesHow pacifism is ultimately a violent actMartyrdom gets you nowhereHow vicious children really areWriting a vicious book about viciousness that assaults the [...]

    13. Do I dare disturb the universe?The Chocolate War is probably Robert Cormier's best known novel - and certainly his most controversial one. First published in 1974, it has since been frequently challenged and banned in many schools and libraries in the US, and forty years after its publication remains very high on the most frequently censored books.The novel is set at Trinity School, an all-male Catholic preparatory high school, and focuses on Jerry Renault - one of the freshmen. Jerry is a quiet [...]

    14. MY BLOG: Your Move, DickensI absolutely loved this book, which isn’t surprising since it reminded me of John Green’s novels. John Green is ONE OF MY FAVORITE WRITERS. Now, Cormier and Green are two completely different writers, but Cormier’s use of the T.S. Eliot line ‘Do I dare disturb the universe?’ reminded me of John Green’s use of literary references in his novels. Cormier only used a single line from The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, but what a perfect line it is. It summed [...]

    15. When I started reading this book, I was wondering to myself about why this book was banned in so many schools. Now, I know why. “The Chocolate War” is a popular young adult book by Robert Cormier and it is about how a young teenage boy named Jerry Renault refuses to sell chocolates at his school, Trinity and how he faces some hardships from Brother Leon and the Vigils because of his defiance. “The Chocolate War” might be a bit too disturbing and dark from some people, but this book is cl [...]

    16. The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier is in my top five favorite novels of all time and is definitely the best book I have read this year so far. The book shows us the cruelty of people and the amazing power of intimidation both by students and by teachers. The story concerns a Catholic school for boys which embarks on a massive chocolate sale mainly controlled by Brother Leon, who uses what he calls school spirit to try and get the students to sell all 20,000 boxes. Jerry, our young protagonist, [...]

    17. Reading this for/with the 8th grade. Mrs. LeVasseur had a pile of them and she highly recommended it. "Sure!" I says. SO now I'm well more than half way and fascinated. I keep thinking that it's some big analogy for government and democracies or maybe the school is Russia and it's about communism. I'll have to check when it was written.And now that I'm finished with itlet me continue my review:I'm really surprised by the complexity of the characters. It reminds me of Watchmen in a way because at [...]

    18. Lean and mean, great allegorical writing; for me, what happens at Trinity is Nazi Europe in a nutshell -- it's easy to see the Vigils all growed up and goose-kicking their way through murder and mayhem. Evil exists in even the most innocuous, seemingly innocent placeske a prep school, and the preppie students who go there. A little power can fuel a lot of misdeeds and looking the other way is how evil wins. While I feel this book has a lot to offer, especially for its intended audience, and rema [...]

    19. The Chocolate War, by Robert Cormier, takes place in a Catholic prep school for boys. The main character is Jerry Renault, a freshman who is dealing with the recent death of his mother. Not only has Jerry’s mother died, but his father has become very depressed and is unable to help Jerry through this difficult time. When school starts Jerry puts everything he has into making it on the football team, and things seem to be going well until the lead member of the school’s secret society, The Vi [...]

    20. The master. The greatest. What can I say about Robert Cormier that so many before have not already declared? Yet it still seems to fall short of the mark. There is an internal tenseness that one gets when even thinking about reading a Robert Cormier book, that is unlike the effect of any other writer. You can't count on everything turning out all right in the end, the protagonist being led through extended difficulties to a place of greater knowledge and peace with themselves. You really never k [...]

    21. Makes LORD OF THE FLIES look like good clean fun!I had to teach this book as a high school teacher. It was hard selling it to the kids because I really hated it myself. The problem is that Cormier is writing a book that just doesn't succeed on any level. SHOCK LEVEL -- no, it doesn't shock. It's not like A CLOCKWORK ORANGE where the violence is over the top, sensational, and terrifying. These kids are more like whiners and snitches who react to verbal taunts with elaborate schemes and weird para [...]

    22. I don't recommend The Chocolate War.*****I guess there is no way to soften the blow, but The Chocolate War is senseless to me. i thought the book has no purpose. It is my first time to encounter a story without a likely hero. Man, this really sucked for me! My apologies to my dear GR friends who liked The Chocolate War. Like what i said, agree to disagree. right? =)I guess what i'm looking for is this: a ray of hope, a sliver or chance that maybe, maybe in the end something good will happen. How [...]

    24. Robert CormierThe Chocolate WarEmber267 pages6.3A glowing review from The New York Times doesn't pretty much guarantee that that book will fulfill your high expectation. Instead, it rockets your expectation high, and it hurts when your expectation fails you. Robert Cormier's The Chocolate War, for example, is often regarded as one of the best young adult books ever written, but for me, The Chocolate War is a homophobic and misogynistic book, set in 1970s in all-boys Catholic high school--which m [...]

    25. I Did not like this book at all. I had to force myself to finish it just because I hate leaving books unfinished. It is a story about a chocolate sale at a private boys prep school. The action revolves around one evil bully, an equally evil and manipulative teacher and their victim. I find it extremely unbelievable that one teenage boy could have as much power as the bully in this story does. The plot was completely ridiculous. I did not care for the theme of the book or most of the action of th [...]

    26. This came out well after my teen years, of course, and I first read it in a Young Adult Lit class in library school. It was a powerful, disturbing read then, and it is today--especially if you're lucky enough to hear the audio version, read by late great Frank Muller. It's the kind of book he was meant to read, and his voice simply drips with menace throughout the chilling tale. Working through some YA classics and the themes in this one--bullying, fitting in vs. being true to oneself, peer pres [...]

    27. I think I originally encountered this book while glancing at a banned books list, and the premise interested me enough to add it my 'to read' list to see what the fuss was about. It's about an all-boys Catholic high school in New England in the 1970's that makes its students sell chocolates each year to raise money for the school, and every day of the sale each student must report aloud in class how many they sold. The main character, Jerry, is a freshman trying out for quarterback on the footba [...]

    28. The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier is one of those books that was required reading when I was in grade school. However, I was one of those kids who was preoccupied with other concerns during English class and refused to give The Chocolate War even an ounce of my attention. In retrospect, I am glad I didn't read this book when I was younger. I would not have been able to appreciate the subtle brilliance of The Chocolate War and the genius Cormier displays to tell his tale.Although I was frustrat [...]

    29. Honestly, I didn't expect or even really want to like this, let alone love it. I picked it up because it's sort of a classic and references my favorite poem and allegedly is a great "boy book." More of a great human book. As disturbing as Lord of the Flies, yet set in circumstances so familiar and accessible that the horror is even more plausible and visceral. For me, it brought up former high school stuff and current teacher stuff. Beyond that, though, it is just so incredibly insightful and ar [...]

Planuri malefice de denigrare ale vreunui coleg care nu ne era pe plac, răzbunări răutăcioase, atacuri publice cu trimiteri la secrete care ar fi trebuit păstrate pentru totdeauna, prietenii care se rup și se refac repede sau mai greu, depinde de cât de dorită este fata care face su [...]
