An American classic and great bestseller for over thirty years, A Separate Peace is timeless in its description of adolescence during a period when the entire country was losing its innocence to the second world war.
Set at a boys’ boarding school in New England during the early years of World War II, A Separate Peace is a harrowing and luminous parable of the dark side of adolescence. Gene is a lonely, introverted intellectual. Phineas is a handsome, taunting, daredevil athlete. What happens between the two friends one summer, like the war itself, banishes the innocence of these boys and their world.
A bestseller for more than thirty years, A Separate Peace is John Knowles’s crowning achievement and an undisputed American classic.
I read this book twice once as a high schooler and once thirty years later and enjoyed it both times. Good story, good writing, and characters who you care about. Recommended!...EAF
Tbh the paper back book is only 5 dollars so why would I pay $10 so it can be on my phone ? I could go online and read it for free...
This book has a ton of information. In the beginning it is a little slow but overall is a super fast read and a great book.
