Review:

The Chocolate War is uncompromising and unsentimental. It is doubtful, and finally irrelevant, whether Mr Cormier was writing for adolescents or for adults, any more than William Golding was concerned with a specific audience as he wrote Lord of the Flies, with which this novel stands comparison ( TES )

Getting inside the souls of adolescents seems to be Cormier's particular gift ( Publishing Weekly )
