Jules’ Book Reviews reviewed The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011. Here’s an excerpt:
Comparable to books like “The Wars” and “Alls Quite on the Western Front” I enjoyed the book. It takes the war, and brings it home, as it examines the effects, on a person’s psyche, showing how the brutal effects the persona and changes them. I can see why it’s considered to be an American classic. I didn’t enjoy the character, but I was interested in his story. And at times, I found the other characters to be fairly flat.
