Academy Award-winning actor and author Alan Arkin tells a brilliant tale in this young-adult novel, The Lemming Condition. The story is an allegory on conformity, as Bubber, a lemming, is faced with following his entire race to self-induced extinction. Bubber struggles to decide if he should participate in what appears to be an insane death walk, only to constantly be told by family and friends that this is just the way things are. The story provides a superb lesson on conformity, free thinking and personal accountability.

This is an excellent book that I read at a critical time in our lives.

Great story, especially for young adults and adults. A story about challenging the status quo, and learning to form your own beliefs and opinions. Being okay with thinking for yourself, instead of letting others do it for you. This story reminds me of the quote: "don't worship the god of other people's opinions.". Another similar book or story suggestion would be " The Giver" by Lois Lowry.
