Has anyone else here read this book? Whether you were forced to, or read it off your own accord? If so, tell me what you thought about it!

All I  know about this book is that the title was taken from a line in Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms

Ahhh, this is so weird! I've been reading this book for English. Well, not exactly for English, as the teacher's not making us read the book, but I chose A Separate Peace to read and analyze.. ANYway, sorry, didn't mean to write you an essay  But I've enjoyed the book so far - it's quite good!

Mm..I've passed the part where Finny gets hurt - I think I'm 2-3 chapters past it. Is the ending good? (Lol, I'm jumping ahead here )

Ssh!

We're supposed to read this book sometimes in High School, I'm not too sure whether it's for next year or this year, but I'm looking forward to it.....I think.

Lol! Yeah Ray, just wait until you read about..

Haha. The ending Mer? Well, it was okay.. I really didn't care for.. a certain thing, and how it happens, but eh. It almost seemes rushed as you get towards the end.. but you read it and judge yourself!

I've read it! And yes, I was forced... it was a couple years ago for English, don't remember what grade, anyway, I didn't really care for it. Just wasn't my cup of tea. I don't why I didn't like it, cuz it wasnt THAT bad, so I don't remember.

Oh, and HobbitFancier, I agree about the ending, very rushed... I think there were several endings that would have been better, but then again, I'm not the author
