Comments The Lemming Condition

  • Joy

    This was one of the most influential books of my early childhood. I recently found it amongst various sentimental items that I had stored away in boxes. I just reread it and was somewhat proud of my younger self for having absorbed the powerful message at such a young age. I'm looking forward to passing this book on to my kids. No one not our friends, not even our own beloved parents and siblings can dictate our choices. A great way to introduce the idea of free will and personal accountability [...]


  • Julia

    A friend recommended this book as the most disturbing children's book--so of course I was intrigued. Basically, your cute and furry creature is a lemming named Blubber, who must decide between taking the plunge or saving his inner child. I found this book hilarious and disturbing in one sitting. This book would pair well with the classic White Wilderness lemming debacle (see the snopes link) and a glass of cabernet. snopes/disney/films/le


  • Laurette

    One of my favorites from childhood. But very disturbing. May not be suitable for very young children.


  • Raphael Chan

    This book's story is pretty interesting because in the story the characters were talking about going west into the ocean. At first I thought that they were going to swim or something, but then when I got to the end it turned out that they were all suiciding by jumping into ocean, but leaving a few babies behind to start their civilization all over again, which I thought was very queer. Also, the main character, Bubber, was too full of fear that he didn't suicide like all the others.


  • Volkert

    Short, juvenile book about a lemming named Bubber, who questions the great lemming migration into the sea. The moral: don't follow the crowd. An excellent story, too bad it has a few "hells" in it, which spoils it as children's literature.


  • Ødegård Solveig

    3.5 stars. Would love to perform this story as a stageplay! Funny, witty and taunting.


  • Mark Barnes

    If you enjoyed Spencer Johnson's Who Moved My Cheese, I think you'll love The Lemming Condition. Similar in its brevity (Lemming is a 20-30 minute read), Alan Arkin's nifty story is an allegory on conformity. Starring a confused Lemming named Bubber, who can't figure out why his race is so eager to storm off of a cliff and fall to their death, the protagonist spends the entire story questioning his fate and the motives of his mammal race. As the death march approaches, Bubber considers the varyi [...]


  • Katie

    Oh my gosh. This is quite possibly my least favorite book of all time! (besides Twilight. Maybe)Basically, it's about an adorable little animal.Then, (view spoiler)[ All of his friends jump off a cliff. But he doesn't. (hide spoiler)]That's it. Now, I understand this is probably supposed to be for younger kids, and about peer pressure and stuff, but it's almost disturbing. I read this when I was 11 for an assignment, and I hated it. Basically, if you have a choice, don't read it.


  • Letticia

    This book was read to me in elementary school and I remember really loving it, so I bought it now. I really remember the story being so much longer but that must be because I was a child. I still really love this story about the nonconformist lemming. This is a great story to read to your children as it will teach them to question everything and think for themselves.


  • Bella

    I wonder what Bubber will do? The book was ok, but the idea was sad about the Lemmings. I think Bubber did a great choice! He really is a brave lemming. I like that all of the lemmings didn't die, that some didn't jump off the cliff and die. It was kind of sad.


  • Kristen

    This is a great book. NOT FOR KIDS. But a great book about making your own choices and not just following the crowd.Also it is really SHORT, because it is cataloged in the juvenile section. There is swearing, really mild and not much, but a little.


  • Briana

    Aware of the concept of the lemming, I now understand it better. And am certain this text has lots of deeper meanings than a lemming who was smart enough to know lemmings can't swim!


  • Todd

    IF YOU LIKED THIS TRY


  • Kate

    Everyone should read, a great life lesson, simple & true


  • Jazzy

    Good book. Not one of my favorites. A little sad.


  • Isabella

    I don't really remember this story. This is a book that is not meant for kids who hate school and boring books. I would not recommend this book to anyone. This book didn't stick in my head.


  • Jack

    This was a lame book. It was about a bunch of lemurs jumping of a cliff.


  • Destinee Sutton

    This book prompted me to find out the real reason why lemmings jump off cliffs.


  • Alix

    Do not read this book to your children unless you wish for them to go on a shooting rampage.


  • Erin McGuire

    Fantastic take on the nature of conformity. Seems like a children's book, but truly has more adult overtones, as well as some disturbing moments relating to death. Highly recommended.


  • manatee

    This engaging but depressing book ends with a very forlorn and troubling scene. Our hero is all alone in the world and really there is little hope.


  • Tressa

    Great book!! Fabulous insights to making choices. Quick, short, read.


  • Kate

    I thought this book was really interesting. I thought it was interesting to learn about lemming migration, it crazy that they all jump into the ocean at once. I really recommend this book.


  • Larissa

    Read this for a Bibliotherapy class in grad school.


  • Shana

    Don't be a lemming!!


  • Arielle

    I grew up with this book and it's always nice to give it a re-read. Go Bubber, go!


  • Summer

    Surprisingly deep and insightful allegory.
