It builds and builds causing an expectation that is defied by the idea infecting it that the world is a terrible place filled with terrible people and where good people are cowed and terrorized by the evil. There is no sense of justice, even small justice, anywhere present throughout the entire text. I understand that evil is a sick strength, but there's no light anywhere that lasts. The strength from the good people in the book is fleeting and stands no chance with that of the terrible people who rule.

"The Chocolate War" portrays the story of a freshman by the name of Jerry Renault attending Trinity High School. The school is run by a group of teenagers known as The Vigils. The antagonist, Archie Costello, is part of the group, and he is notorious for giving out assignments to other students that usually do physical or psychological harm to them. Jerry receives one of these assignments in which he is tasked to refuse to sell chocolates for the school fundraiser for a certain number of days and then accept them. However, Jerry continues to refuse to sell the chocolates, and, in doing so, he disturbs the universe. This ultimately ends in his demise, since Archie can't allow Jerry to blatantly disregard the order of The Vigils. By the end of the book, Jerry regrets disturbing the universe, and he believes that it wasn't worth the pain and suffering that was brought upon him. "The Chocolate War" was an enjoyable read, because the novel tells it how it is. By disturbing the universe, Jerry is standing up against the system and revealing his individuality. Instead of doing as he's told, Jerry does what no one else has ever done before. While the book could have gone with a happy ending, Cormier wrote a more realistic end to Jerry's tale. This made "The Chocolate War" more memorable for me, because I had been hoping the best for Jerry. Ultimately, the themes brought up throughout the novel are interesting parallels to modern day society, and they had me questioning certain aspects of life.

This book is great right up to the end. It builds and builds causing an expectation that is defied by the idea infecting it that the world is a terrible place filled with terrible people and where good people are cowed and terrorized by the evil. There is no sense of justice, even small justice, anywhere present throughout the entire text. I understand that evil is a sick strength, but there's no light anywhere that lasts. The strength from the good people in the book is fleeting and stands no chance with that of the terrible people who rule.

There's no battle of good and evil, though the author alludes to that with a kind of David and Goliath kind of conflict. Instead, evil tramples everything and leaves only pain in its wake. So, if you like a lack of closure, lack of justice, and lack of redemption, and if you like watching good people who stand as tall as they dare crumble to be left with nothing but broken souls, then read this book. Otherwise, stay away.

I expect to experience downer endings every now and then from horror novels, but I was thinking this book different as it makes itself to be something of a cruel, but inspirational take on bullying. It is not. It is bully porn, where the bullies get away with everything and good people fall and are crushed. The only message the author gives is "keep your head down, do what you're told, and give the bullies what they want."

I give it two stars because I was definitely hooked, but was ultimately let down. I felt like an amateur cook who followed the directions to some baking recipe while a professional cook watched on, only to have the final product completely fail for no reason and in the end the professional tells me that I should never cook again and informs me that the reason the I failed was because I tried.

I will not read the sequel as reviews of that book seem to tell a similar tale. I will also stay away from this author altogether.

Lots of YA books centered in schools strike me as a little off the mark. Even the ones aimed at guys so often have to do with overachievers (will I get into an Ivy?) or with immediately recognizable gargoyle authority figures (when it's the "respected" adults who often turn out suspect). This one reminds me of a real-life situation (only mine involved yearbooks, not chocolate bars). It is well written and says leagues about peer pressure, conformity, and the American obsession with attaining one hundred percent which, if anything, has intensified since THE CHOCOLATE WAR was first published over 40 years ago. Many schools might not find room for this one on their curriculum but then, many schools consider uniformity the price of peace. All I can say is, read it anyway.

The individual versus the mob; the man versus the system; the citizen versus the state - choose your metaphor.

This is among the most realistic portrayals of life you will come across; meaning the individual who refuses to get in line will be subject to attack, cruelty, and injustice.

Many have called this a dark book; many ask why can't this book offer more hope?

I can only answer that the hero in this book puts everything on the line - everything! And he risks it all for an idea - the idea that the individual matters.

If that doesn't give you hope, then try something else.

I remember getting in trouble when I submitted a book report on this in the 8th grade. First time I ever heard of a banned book list. Turned out okay as teacher took responsibility for not approving books before hand. However, this book is a treasure and should be read. Teaches valuable lessons on conformity and standing up for something. Values that could have saved disasters such as Enron.
