There were some thought-provoking concepts in this one, but it seemed dated it was written in the late s. The premise of an "academy" dedicated to helping people with suicidal tendencies make a choice between life and death preferably death is intriguing, but the story quickly bogged down in the crisis of identity the academy's director and novel's protagonist is having: as a Jew, as a divorcee still in love with his ex-wife, as a man being pulled away from a passion for living.

Over the rest of the year, there were more youth suicides than expected given historical trends. Researchers warn that their study does not prove causation, and some unknown third factor might have been responsible for the increase, like other celebrity deaths that occurred around the same time, but there is a very strong correlation.
