I had to read "I Am The Cheese" by Robert Cormier for school, and the book is extremely messed up. 

I kind of like it though. a-hard-days-night-george-10


I've had to read some extremely disturbing books for school lately (including a book about how someone's insane father faked a nuclear holocaust to see how far his family would go to survive), but "I Am The Cheese" is probably the strangest book I've had to read for school so far.

  

 

We had to read "...Cheese" in 10th grade; I recall almost nothing about it. I do know that a feature film adaptation was released, starring Robert MacNaughton (he played the older brother in "E.T.: The Extraterrestrial"

Is that other book "The Mosquito Coast"?

I'm currently resuming In Cold Blood by Truman Capote for AP English (she sprung it on us that we had to have the whole book read by the first week of Feb.....ugh). I'm also making my way through Man on the Run by Tom Doyle and I'm still waiting for Tune In to arrive at my library.

I was rereading The Great Gatsby, and appreciating it more than I did in my younger and more vulnerable years a-hard-days-night-george-10, but I mislaid my book somewhere so it's on hold until I clean up my room enough to find it. ahdn_george_06

So we clean on, books amidst the quagmire, thrown back carelessly in the morass.

The book was "The Compound" by S. A. Bodeen, @Von Bontee. I also remember reading about the movie version of "I Am the Cheese", but I probably won't watch it because the book has way too many separate plots to make it into a successful movie. Looking back, that's probably why it got so many bad reviews. a-hard-days-night-paul-10
