Review: THE RED BADGE OF COURAGE by Stephen Crane

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.
