Here's another of those books read by the protagonist of <cite>Of Human Bondage</cite>, Philip. Gah!

This was pretty awful. I thought it might be one of those archetypal British school boys books. I rather liked <cite>Stalky and Company</cite> when I read it, both as a youth and again as a more "mature" person. A year of so ago, I tried <cite>Tom Brown's School Days</cite> and found it unreadable, so I gave up on it. Anyway, perhaps this book is also meant to be a British school boy book, but it was also flagrantly written to provide moral teaching to young boys. What it actually shows, however, is a complete moral bankruptcy on the part of the author.

So, we have adolescent boys doing the kinds of things adolescent boys do. They have some rules handed down from above, but aren't given reasons for those rules other than being told, I suppose, that breaking them will inevitably lead to moral decay. But, the masters in the school pretty much ignore the boys and they, being adolescent boys, run amok when they can. Once in a while, they are caught stepping over the ill-defined lines (one of their masters awakes from his un-noticing moralistic trance, or something), and then their good, moral masters beat the living crap out of them with sticks. So, that's how we make Christians out of people: set incongruous rules; publicly humiliate people who break the rules, even inadvertently; and beat the living crap out of them if they piss the masters off too much with their adolescent behavior.

Then you have teenage boys constantly crying about one thing or another, holding hands, hooking their arms around each other's necks, and so forth. In what planet does that happen?

Bah! Unless you want to study literary history, avoid this piece of trash.

This was a "print on demand" book and not a commercially sold paperback, which means the typeface is from a computer and the pages are 8x11. I was expecting it to be a proper, published paperback. Also, many of the pages are missing lines of text across the middle: the printer ink did not work. The quality of the binding seems fine.

When I give this four stars, I don't mean that I recommend reading this just for fun. I read it because I study Victorian literature and culture, and I kept coming across references to this text. Its sensibilities and values are not my sensibilities and values, and it's likely that they're not yours, either, although if you are a certain kind of Christian you might vibrate to it more than I do, for Farrar took his religion seriously. --It's been about a year since I read it, but I recall it being an interesting story about a boy's experiences at a small English public school--who falls in with a bad crowd and despite his initial goodness turns out bad, one step down the slippery slope to perdition at a time. If you read between the lines, you'll notice that there are some references to sexual improprieties, queer and otherwise, if I recall correctly. Homosexual activity was, of course, a part of life at such schools. The ending, as I recall, is pietistic to an appalling degree, at least by my lights.

A piece that directly addresses the development of boys and their influence from peers.
