Publisher Description

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?

N. H. Kleinbaum, a graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, is a former newspaper reporter and editor. Her other novelizations include the Bantam Starfire title Growing Pains and D.A.R.Y.L. She lives in Mt. Kisco, New York, with her husband and three children.

Loved this book

This book was amazing! I loved the plot, the story was beautiful and it did break my heart with emotions everywhere. I will probably read it 100 times again because it taught me a lot. The writing was okay, definitely not the best, but it is for young grades so makes sense. Definitely read! It was great and an eye opener.

Breathtaking, Poetic, and Emotional

I know this is based off a movie, but I read this before watching it and I never felt this close, emotionally, to a novel for so long I have to say it is one of the greats. And I mean it as an author.

A bit pretentious

I’m only off of what I saw in the movie, (half of the movie that is). But I think theater or literature or any type of art for that matter should think too much of it self imho.
But try it for yourself you might like it. Art is in the eye of the beholder. 😀
