The Chocolate War - Robert Cormier This book is way too horrendously pessimistic for me. I also find it wholly unrealistic--this is a parable, not something that could ever actually happen on such a scale. My overwhelming emotion while reading this book is disgust, which is probably not too far off the mark as far as Cormier's intent goes, but I don't really enjoy reading books that leave me feeling nothing but disgusted horror. I hope I'm never asked to read it again.
