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.
