I've done this for some time with seniors in a college-bound class, but I do
expect that they'll find out what others have said about the book and they
are welcome to disagree as much as they like. I never assume that they will
be able to enjoy the book thoroughly, although that often happens. Obviously
switching them from totally plot-oriented story lines with lots of action
requires some work. Also, they must prepare a handout for each student which
contains a short plot summary, author info, comments about theme, etc. I
encourage them to keep all these in a folder and retain for use later when
they are in college and need a quick reference for themselves.
