    Even though the war had thrown a shroud over the outside world, Phineas and Gene remained untouched by it. In the summer of ’42, the Devon school was a lot like Camelot, fairly bursting with adventure and promise. As much as Gene resisted it, there had been something eternal and unforgettable about that summer. And by the time he understood what life without Phineas could be—it was too late.

    Stephen says: "Good story, Worst narration ever! Read the book!"

    What did you like best about A Separate Peace? What did you like least?

    A Separate Peace was a very diverse story. Gene, the main character, made his "separate peace" with the world. I didn't like the random darkness quite so much, but I suppose that's much of literature.


    What other book might you compare A Separate Peace to and why?

    Candide. The innocence to realism transitional archetype.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Spike McClure’s performances?

    No. At least in this reading, he was very monotone. It practically sounded like he was saying "and then... and then... and then..."


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Maybe, probably not.
