  It was during my high school American literature class, that we students were required to read several novels, among them was 'Welcome to the Monkey House.' I wasn't engaged by the story or very impressed by the writing style, at the time I was more into 'Of Mice and Men' for a personal read.

But the story really struck me when a group of parents started a petition to have the book banned from the classroom and the schools library.

I was asked by my mother to sign the petition, I refused, becoming angry that any authors work would be bannned. Because of it I'll always remember the title, if not the content of the novel.
