Think Differently                  

I Am the Cheese





by Robert Cormier, paperback, 218 pages

   This is a frightening novel which, like many of Cormier's books, makes the reader as afraid to go forward as his main character is. We are with Adam as he rides his bike from Monument, Massachusetts toward a hospital in Vermont where his father is. Interspersed with the exhausting and sometimes frightening trip, we read excerpts from a taped interview between Adam and an enigmatic interviewer. Through these tapes, we find the horror that has existed for Adam and we learn of his eventual fate. It is also revealed, on those tapes, that Adam has been and is being heavily medicated, that his memories are full of gaps and that this interviewer, for reasons of his own, is helping him work his way through those gaps. Eventually we learn what the interviewer recommends for Adam's future. Our realization that all of this is still impersonal, that the powers-that-be can have acted so callously, is the deeper horror in the book.
