⛅ Beyond the Chocolate War list ⛏ ePUB By Robert Cormier ⛳ ⛅ Beyond the Chocolate War list ⛏ ePUB By Robert Cormier ⛳ Ray Banister started to build the guillotine the day Jerry Renault returned to Monument.There was no connection between the two events In fact, Ray Bannister didn t even know Jerry Renault existed The truth of the matter is that Ray began to construct the guillotine out of sheer boredom More than boredom loneliness, restlessness He was a newcomer to Monument and to Trinity High He hated bothwell, maybe hate was too strong a word, but he found Monument to be a dull and ugly mill town of drab tenement houses and grim factories, with no class at all, a terrible contrast to Caleb, the resort village on Cape Cod where he d grown up with beach sand between his toes and salt spray stinging his cheeks Trinity was a suffocatingly small school, filled with guys who were suspicious of strangers or, at the very least, unfriendly The Headmaster and the teachers were brothers, those strange people who wore stiff white collars but weren t quite priests and yet weren t quite like ordinary men Ray s father insisted that brothers made the ideal teachers, dedicated and loyal to education They have nothing to distract them, his father said They don t have to worry about earning a big salarythe Order takes care of all their needsand they don t have wives or children to support, except maybe a girl friend or two in these crazy, liberal times That last remark was supposed to pass for wit Ray Bannister s father was renowned for his wit at cocktail parties, but Ray, frankly, didn t find him amusing at all Particularly since he d accepted the company promotion that meant a transfer from the Cape to this rotten city in the middle of New England.Ray had always been a loner, even on the Cape, where he had spent long hours roaming the beaches and dunes or sailing his beloved skiff in the warm waters south of Caleb In a fit of disgust and disillusionment, he d practically given his boat away, sold it for a quarter of its worth to Joe Scerra, his best friend in Caleb Ray had built the boat himself, lovingly, knew every section and area of its surface just as he knew the tone and texture of his own body.Monument looked as if sailing weather didn t exist Snow melted on the Cape as soon as it kissed the land Ray was dismayed to find Monument covered with the dirty rags of old snow when he arrived in February The landscape of city streets was bleak and forbidding, like a movie set from one of those old late night films about the Depression Lonely, unable to make friends at Trinity and not really trying very hard, Ray pursued his interest in magic His father, who had been an amateur magician years ago, had given him a magic kit for Christmas as a kind of bribe to compensate for the transfer to Monument At first Ray had only gone through the motions of showing interest But, bored and restless, he began to fool around with the kit and found, to his surprise, that the tricks were not merely kid stuff but sophisticated and challenging, almost professional He discovered the Stripper Deck and the Cups and Balls and the Silk Scarves and soon found himself adept at sleight of hand With no one to entertain, he performed before the mirror in his bedroom.As winter changed into spring or, rather, as the grayness of February and March yielded to the soft yellow of April, Ray grew bored with the simple finger tricks He rummaged around the cellar, remembering that his father had all kinds of paraphernalia left over from his days as an entertainer at club and organization parties when Ray himself was just a kid His father had carefully packed the stuff away when they had moved to Monument During his search, Ray came across an old cardboard box that contained complicated tricks and effects he couldn t do anything with because there were no directions Then he discovered an old leather bound book, copyright 1922, that provided instructions for hundreds of magic effects The book included plans and illustrations for various stage illusions, like levitation and disappearances Ray was disappointed to learn the secrets of the illusions, how mechanical they were He thought There s no magic, really, anywhere in the world It was like finding out there was no Santa Claus.The plans for guillotine attracted his immediate attention, however The secret was so simple and yet so effective He imagined himself on the stage in the Trinity auditorium, performing for the student bodyMay I have a volunteer from the audience and hearing the guys gasp with astonishment as the blade fell, seeming to penetrate the volunteer s neck Ray s hands itched to build the guillotine, just as they had itched to build his skiff He d always been clever with his hands In fact, his father had said that he hated the idea of squandering money on Ray s college education when he d probably do better as a carpenterand a carpenter didn t need a college degree.At any rate, lonely, indifferent to both Monument and Trinity, tired of the perennial gray clouds that haunted the early days of spring, wistful for those bikini girls who would be emerging on Caleb s beaches any day now, Ray Bannister assembled his tools and the lumber required to build the guillotine He bought the blade at a magic store in Worcester And, as he told Obie later Honest, he d never heard of Jerry Renault or Archie Costello or any of the others.Robert Cormier has written a brilliant sequel, finely crafted, denser in plotting, and subtle in character nuance than at his debut ten
