I picked up A Separate Peace having vague notions of it's status as a beloved classic. It's the tale of two friends at boarding school in the states during WWII. The two are closest friends and and in some ways the biggest of rivals. Meh! I never felt that any of the characters had any connection. The most interesting student in the novel, Leper, is a side story and a plot clincher. I almost wish they had followed him instead.
