Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“One of the most chilling books I’ve ever read. Set in a classroom, it shows how susceptible young minds are, how vulnerable, how easy to control.” The Guardian (London)
“An important [book] that deserves to be rediscovered by a new generation.” Knowledge House
“Before reading the story it may seem implausible that it could be so easy to strip away these most fundamental symbols of American cultural in less than an hour; Clavell, however, presents a terrifyingly convincing demonstration of just how easy it could be.” Tertulia Moderna
“One of the most chilling books I’ve ever read. Set in a classroom, it shows how susceptible young minds are, how vulnerable, how easy to control.” The Guardian (London)
