Dead Poets Society

N.H. Kleinbaum
Todd Anderson and his friends at Welton Academy can hardly believe how different life is since their new English professor, the flamboyant John Keating, has challenged them to "make your lives extraordinary!  " Inspired by Keating, the boys resurrect the Dead Poets Society--a secret club where, free from the constraints and expectations of school and parents, they let their passions run wild.  As Keating turns the boys on to the great words of Byron, Shelley, and Keats, they discover not only the beauty of language, but the importance of making each moment count.But the Dead Poets pledges soon realize that their newfound freedom can have tragic consequences.  Can the club and the individuality it inspires survive the pressure from authorities determined to destroy their dreams?

This one I just really had a difficult time getting into. It wasn't entertaining and other than the professor, I didn't like any of the characters in this book. Their lives didn't interest me and their personalites were annoying. The pacing was slow and I found four grammatical errors/typos within this story. I know that it is considered a cult classic and that people really enjoy this one but I just don't get it. I can't recommend it.
