A Separate Peace | John Knowles
post image
Mehso-so

I thought I loved this book for so many years but it was just meh. Gene is about the most annoying, whiny, fake jerk I've encountered! It feels like Nick Carraway could have been his older self somewhere along the way. Nostalgia isn't all it's cracked up to be and I really don't know why this was required reading in high school! Lol... Extra points because John Knowles was from Long Island.

Suet624 What is happening in this picture? 1w
IamIamIam @Suet624 I found a stock photo of someone with a broken leg. That's a pivotal event in the book, not really much of a spoiler. 1w
Suet624 Oh, of course. I read this book several times when I was young. I wonder what I would think of it now. 1w

IamIamIam @Suet624 😁 I'd be interested to see what you think as well! I really didn't like it as much as I remembered. 🤷‍♀️ 1w
ravenlee All I remember about this book, which was assigned in ninth grade, was that senior year a group of us went canoeing and saw some kids along the river playing on an overhanging tree. Someone yelled, “Don‘t do it, Phinny!” and we all thought it was hilarious. Probably not the takeaway our English teacher intended. 1w
IamIamIam @ravenlee 😂😂😂 That's spectacular!!! Hey, at least you remembered something!!! 1w
ravenlee Well, I suppose if the canoeing incident hadn‘t happened I wouldn‘t remember anything about it at all, so 🤷🏻‍♀️. At the time I thought it kind of marked us as the nerds (unapologetically), since only honors English had to read it. I had found my tribe. 1w
IamIamIam @ravenlee I love it!!! 💜 #NerdsUnite 1w
