The Chocolate War Review

Summary of The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier 

Jerry Renault ponders the question on the poster in his locker: Do I dare disturb the universe? Refusing to sell chocolates in the annual Trinity school fund-raiser may not seem like a radical thing to do. But when Jerry challenges a secret school society called The Vigils, his defiant act turns into an all-out war. Now the only question is: Who will survive? First published in 1974, Robert Cormier's groundbreaking novel, an unflinching portrait of corruption and cruelty, has become a modern classic.

Review


This is a well-written novel which displays the harsh reality of the darker side of humanity. I didn't connect much with the characters however. There are very few girls present and they only appear in the book as objects the boys lust for.
