I first read this book while I was in high school. Although it's not actually a very long book at all, it took me at least a year to get through it, not because I didn't like it, but because I found it so profound that I kept stopping to think about things in my own life.Recently I decided to read it again, and my first hurdle was figuring out which book it was, since I didn't remember the title or the author, and all my Googling for keywords was in vain until I finally remembered the catchphras [...]

This is a wonderful novel, one I read as a teenager when it first was published more than 40 years ago and have re-read periodically since.

Perhaps life, age, and the viewing of movies and reading of other books had something to do with it.

This shows too often what young people do and how they feel about the things around them.I was sorry for Phillipson being the only one left of the 3 but he did get to go to school and found out who gave him the money for college.He seemed like a caring guy.

Paul Horgan, RDC-B, Autumn, 1970 @ 1970, 8/73. A high school senior inadvertently causes the death of two of his friends in the powerful novel. Good.
