Review: ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT by Erich Maria Remarque

Olduvai Reads recently read and reviewed All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s an excerpt:

There is little need for me to tell you about this  book, for you have probably heard of it – or maybe read it in school. But if you, like me, have been hesitant to get hold of this book, let me tell you – go for it. It is a war novel, yes – and maybe for you that’s also a gulp, but it is a must-read. You cannot help but feel for these men – boys rather – as Remarque opens the book with discussions about food, a constant thought on their minds amid all the carnage and misery. And you feel all that wretchedness and agony.

Read the full review.

  1. I did read this book quite awhile ago, not sure I’m up for a re-read. It was pretty gruesome, or at least thats what I remember. it was good though.
