I much prefer The Chocolate War, as it is a groundbreaking young adult novel with a complex narrative style, symbolism, and themes.Narrative style: the novel is told from multiple points of view, much like Faulkner did with his “free style” narration in As I Lay Dying.  Although this causes our narrators to be unreliable, we get a better perspective of Jerry and his problems, and a shifting point of view prevents the novel from being melodramatic, in that we empathize with, but no pity Jerry.Symbolism: Cormier is a bit heavy-handed with the religious imagery and metaphors here, and it has caused some backlash, especially in the Catholic community.  But the novel can be read as a kind of morality tale/allegory of individual good versus group evil.  The novel also attacks the greed of capitalism through symbolic tropes.Themes: already mentioned is the Good v. Evil and Individual vs. Group themes.  Also present are the Victim vs. Victimized (due to peer pressure) and–the most relevant–Courage vs. Cowardice.  All of these themes are intertwined, as Cormier attacks groups the way many existentialist writers do: pitting a lone individual, absurd hero against a group  (peers and authority figures; even God/religion).
