A Separate Peace
Part One
Novel by John Knowles (1959)

Collaboration with wrongheaded.

Read this in middle school. I have such a love-hate relationship with this book, we could appear in a sassy romantic comedy together. The historical context makes what would otherwise be insane idiocy on the part of the characters understandable (is there a sane way to respond to a horrible war?), so it's all good.

Other Book Comics: How Amon Stole Republic City 1984/Peanuts Mash-Up The Catcher in the Rye Robinson Crusoe Charlotte's Web MacBeth

Now on Required Reading, a literary parody webcomic.

I'm here because I read this long ago, and reading it again, looked for it on net to show friend. Omg. This is genius.

I just read chapter one, and the very first thought in my mind was ".....rule 34......." and immediately came here to search. I very much like this comic, too. It made me chuckle.. Stay golden, pal!

XD This is hilariously perfect. The happy (almost literal) golden boy and the cynical emo kid. They should be a hilarious sitcom.

Thanks so much for the kind words! :) And that's a great idea! I would call it "What's up with Gene and Finny?" or maybe "Gene and Finny: The College Years" or even "I love Finny!". It'll be this generation's "Perfect Strangers." Or maybe it could be a romantic comedy! Gene is always frustrated with Finny's cheerful cloudcuckoolander shenanigans, but then he realizes he thinks it's actually cute and they slowly fall in love. Wait, no they did that; I'm thinking of "The New Girl" or "Dharma and Greg."

Heck, I'll just call it "Gene and Finny's Excellent Adventures," and throw in some time-travel.
