Review; Dead Poets Society by N. H. Kleinbaum

A while ago I read Dead Poets Society by N. H. Kleinbaum. Today I'll post the review.

Description from Goodreads
Todd Anderson and his friends at Welton Academy can hardly believe how different life is since their new English professor, the flamboyant John Keating, has challenged them to "make your lives extraordinary! " Inspired by Keating, the boys resurrect the Dead Poets Society--a secret club where, free from the constraints and expectations of school and parents, they let their passions run wild. As Keating turns the boys on to the great words of Byron, Shelley, and Keats, they discover not only the beauty of language, but the importance of making each moment count. But the Dead Poets pledges soon realize that their newfound freedom can have tragic consequences. Can the club and the individuality it inspires survive the pressure from authorities determined to destroy their dreams?

My Thoughts On The Book
It's obvious it's a movie-to-book novel as it's more focused on the plot and does have little-to-none of the usual "extra" stuff novels has, such as though processes, intimacy in general and so on towards the characters. Even if the book lacks the layers the regular novel has, it was still a fun read due to the message of following your dreams and making each moment count.
