After the First Death (1979) is a suspense novel for young adults by American author Robert Cormier. The focus is on the complex relationships that develop between the various characters. The novel takes the name from the poem, "A Refusal to Mourn the Death, by Fire, of a Child in London" by Dylan Thomas. It originates from the last line: "After the first death, there is no other.

After the First Death book. First off, y'all gotta know, I'm pretty biased towards Robert Cormier because he wrote my fave book so him and I are basically homies. Who will be the next to die?They've taken the children. Okay, first I'm going to talk about some themes within the book. I don't mean like textbook, ool, full-sentence themes. I mean otes, nce themes. So I've recorded some of the themes "Who was guilty, then: the monster or the world that created it?"

The path the bullet took, burrowing through the flesh and sinew and whatever muscle the bullet encountered (I am not the macho-muscled type, not at five eleven and one hundred eighteen pounds)

The path the bullet took, burrowing through the flesh and sinew and whatever muscle the bullet encountered (I am not the macho-muscled type, not at five eleven and one hundred eighteen pounds). y, the bullet went through my chest and out again. The wound has healed and there is no pain. The two ends of the tunnel are closed although there’s a puckering of the skin at both ends of the tunnel.

thought provoking-stunning, not one you can forget,

What is evil really? Who are the good guys and who are the bad? That's what this book makes you thinks. It shows you that sometimes life doesn't go the way you want it.
I also liked how Miro was shown. Was he really a monster or just thinking the way he'd been taught all he life? Letting you get to know Miro,Ben,Raymond,and Kate also shows how unfair life is and sometimes the bad guys do win.Also the part with Ben and his dad,and what he made him do,though a bit confusing,was a great counter plot. This book was wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone.

My child needed this book for school. It was in great condition and shipped on time

My son had to read this book for his summer reading assigment. I also read this book so I could quiz him on it later. I actually enjoyed reading it. It was in the young adult section of the library and I thought that I would get bored with it. I was surprised. Mr. Cormier knows how to pull his readers in his story, young and not so young. This book was very thought provoking and my 15 year old enjoyed it too. He actually liked dicussing it with me afterwards, which was very surprising.


I'm not one who reads a lot and chose this book for a school project and I haven't put it down till I finished it. I recommend this book to anyone.

Details. Details. The end notes of the hard cover edition (Pantheon, 1979) I read said Robert Cormier writes "... stunning and superbly crafted novels ..." Really? A bit of editing would have helped the "crafting" process along. I found sentences such as these: "He tells me not worry." (p. 138), "They can talk all the want" (p. 174),

Then there is the main character's (Miro) handgun - is it an automatic (p. 209) or a revolver (p. 215)? If you know the least bit about handguns you know there is a significant difference. In addition, the command building's distance from the bus was described as being 1,000 feet and then later 1,000 yards away. Which is it? Rather significant since snipers play a role in the story. Sloppy work. Tom Clancy this is not.

SPOILER ALERT: I found Miro's escape at the end to be entirely unbelievable . Really? He walks off the bridge with a hostage and NO ONE SEES HIM? Seems like a bald attempt at a sequel: "Miro Lives It Up in New England?"

The suicide / mental hospital ending was unclear to me. Had to Google that and see what the deal was. An interesting dynamic between father and son helps this book, but I found the sloppy work annoying.

This is a disturbing book, but it makes you think.
