    1. Robert Cormier basically seems to write two types of books: introspective novels regarding the world as it was while he grew up, in which he demonstrates the deeper insights about life that he has developed during the years following his youth in the mid-twentieth century, and the excruciating suspense novels for which he is more widely known. Other Bells for Us to Ring falls into the first category, and those who have taken the time to piece together Robert Cormier's personal philosophy from re [...]


    2. At first, I was determined not to like "Other Bells for Us to Ring" because this book was required reading for me (well, the author was required). However, I very much enjoyed Cormier's historical novel about a young girl named Darcy who must face the social and political facets of WWII society. Darcy is a shy eleven year-old girl who finds solace in making friends with Kathleen Mary O'Hara, a fiery redhead who challenges Darcy's religious beliefs. Kathleen is a devout Catholic obsessed with gro [...]


    3. I've read a lot of Robert Cormier, but I had never picked up his first bookOther Bells for Us to Ring . I could tell, even in the first few pages, that Cormier had not yet fallen into the mastery of crazy young adult stories he would later be known for. That being said,Other Bells for Us to Ringhad some great stuff going on. Darcy Webster, our main character is awkward and shy and has to deal with both moving and being a religious outsider in a wholly Catholic community. Her foil is a girl named [...]


    4. I'm a big fan of Robert Cormier, finding him one of the most thoughtful and suspenseful YA author. I consider him one of the authors (along with Paul Zindel and S.E. Hinton) who created the realistic young adult genre. By that I mean books written for teens that dealt with the real issues that concerned them without being moralistic. This book shows his versatility as an author, one who can write powerful books like The Chocolate War, suspenseful psychological books such as I Am the Cheese, out [...]


    5. If I were to choose another one of Cormier’s books to read, I would not recommend reading this one. It was mostly a charming nice easy read. What intrigued me was the fact that it was taken place in a French town near French Canada, and that it was during WW2. But it’s really about a young girl’s realization of what love is. She makes a new best friend, who is extremely Catholic, as are most people in the town, but Darcy’s family is not. She at first only sees the rules that Kathy keeps [...]


    6. Other Bells for Us to Ring was a good book about a an eleven year-old girl, Darcy, who moves into a new town. Her new friend, Kathleen O'Hara, challenges her religious beliefs as a Unitarian by "making her Catholic" by throwing holy water on her. Sadly, her friend moves away before she can know if that "conversion" was real or not. So she struggles with the state of her soul and whether she'll be saved. (Does she need to go to a priest?) Her father is off at war, and she is left to tackle these [...]


    7. This book is somewhat on the dark side. Only 152 pages, it is a short read, however it took me a while to really get into the book. Brought back a lot of memories for me--I was brought up Catholic and one of the main characters is a young Catholic girl.The story takes place during WWII. The life of Darcy, the protagonist, is rather dreary. Her family has moved around a lot and Darcy has not made friends until she meets Kathleen Mary O'Hara. Her father has trouble finding and keeping a job, so he [...]


    8. This is the only one of Robert Cormier’s novels I feel able to recommend to non-adult readers. While I teach a number of his works at the university level, the issues they contain are in general too starkly expressed, and too troubling, for me to consider the experience of reading them something I want to give to those I love—or even like. Tunes for Bears to Dance To, I might, as well, if the reader were looking for a troubling novel with a powerful and effective social message. But Other Be [...]


    9. I'm not really sure how I felt about this book. On one hand I loved it: it was a very insightful view into an eleven-year-old's view of friendship, war, religion, and tragedy. On the other hand, I had very little patience for the characters. Not that any of them were obnoxious or anything, but it read very much likeAre You There God? It's Me, Margaret, which I also had little patience for. Perhaps it was because I didn't think anything like that when I was that age. From what I hear about Robert [...]


    10. Usually I love Robert Cormier's books. This book did not meet my expectations. The book was a sweet story about a friendship with a sad twist at the end. It took a long time to get to the action. I liked the ending and felt it was a nice way to finish off the book, but I struggled with the first half of the book. A story about a young girl whose father goes off to WWII as she finds a best friend in a new town and eventually finds faith. The story was ultimately about faith and God as Darcy disco [...]


    11. I chose this book because I like the description in the back. "Other Bells For Us To Ring" is about a girl named Darcy who keeps moving and never had a best friend until she met Kathleen who changed her life. I like the quote , " be like the lilies of the field , who do not toil or spin. Be like flowers everywhere who respond to rain and sunshine and need nothing else. Be like trees that stretch to the sky." because it is encouraging. I like the author's point of view of how it was told by Darcy [...]


    12. This book is not one of my favorite books by Cormier, but it was very touching. If you cannot feel compassion for a young girl who loses the people she loves, I might have to call you heartless. Bad things happen to good people, but life keeps on going. There are indeed "other bells for us to ring." I felt Cormier was very clever to add religion in this book. Instead of saying whether one religion was better than the other, he merely spoke through his characters that God will still love you no m [...]


    13. This is the first book I read in one day. A tragic but also endearing story about young Darcy Webster and her army family moving into a new town when she meets a tough local girl Kathleen, and they become best friends. As Kathleen familiarises her with town, Darcy begins to grow up and question life. Then her father goes missing in the war and then she begins to really question life's ups and downs.


    14. This story is about a girl named darcy who has moved around all her life. she hasn't lived in one place long enough to call anybody her best friend. until she moves to Frenchtown and meets her best friend.Growing up I didn't really move much. ive moved twice and it wasn't so bad because I just moved up the street and was still able to go to the same school and have the same friends. I cant imagine what this girl has gone through.


    15. I thought this book was good. I enjoyed that it talked about friendship and how a friend is nice to have. I enjoyed that it was a fast read and it held my attention. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a book about friendship. It is a good book for people that need a interesting book to read.warningsviolence- somelanguage- very littlesex- none


    16. A young girl moves into a small French-Canadian (Catholic) town as the only Unitarian (dad: "We're the Protestants of Protestants, we barely acknowledge the existence of God.”) She finds a best friend in another outsider who, although Catholic is Irish. They go on many adventures. It sounds like all fun, but with every Cormier title, there is trajedy and darker themes that resonate.


    17. This was another WWII book about a girl whose father gets taken off to war. She becomes best friends with another girl who is quite forceful but kind. She learns about religion and war and family through the hard experiences of her father and of her friend in a family that is not good to her. Her friend ends up having to run away because of her drunk father.


    18. The middle childhood of the girls was well-portrayed. I know this was for younger readers, but I don't think it was long enough to create emotional impact.I was a bit surprised by the religious nature of this one, after reading quite a few of Cormier's others.


    19. I read it on a plane ride, and even though it is narrated by a 12-year-old girl I thought it was pretty good. The book addresses issues of religion, tolerance, and friendship. Quite a few twists in an otherwise simple story. Unlike any other Cormier book I've read.
