4.0 out of 5 stars A worthy sequel, 22 July 2003
By A Customer
Beyond the Chocolate War is the sequel to "The Chocolate War" by Robert Cormier. It again follows Jerry Renault and his struggles to remain unnoticed at Trinity school for boys. Archie, now in his last year, is still head of the Vigils but now with new enemies. Several new characters have become under the reader's scrutiny in a way only Robert Cormier knows how; it's as if the reader is inside the characters' head, becoming his psychiatrist. Although many things have changed at Trinity school since the chocolate sale, the themes from the original book have been carried over. These themes are not as strong (expectedly), but the overall effect is the same.
This novel lives up to the expectations of the first, and is a chilling conclusion to the series. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELENT!!!!!!!, 28 Jan 2004
It started out having The Chocolate War for a class assignment. Then I got really into that book and finished it fast. So I seen there was a sequel to it so I couldn't resist reading it.
Great book, much better than The Chocolate War. Only I wish something worse had happened to Leon instead of just getting a scratch with a knife at his throat and getting hit by a tomato.
Also, some of the minor characters from The Chocolate War play a bigger part in this book. And some major ones become less major. Like Jerry was the star of The Chocolate War, now he is hardly mentioned at all. Archie and Obie are the new stars. Along with Carter.
This a great book that any teen will love.
