The narrator is a little quiet, so this isn't the best option when it comes to listening in a car on the highway. But with headphones on and in a quiet area, the narrator's soft tone brings out all of the best qualities of All Quiet on the Western Front.
This book was captivating throughout. A lot of suffering goes in in the content of this story with little room for pleasure. Written by a WW1 German soldier, this book leaves the reader with a feeling toward compassion within the calamitous atmosphere of war. The narrator does well to pronounce the german names, and overall does a good job with the narration.
This masterpiece makes you envision the moment as if you are looking and living it.
A great depiction of the life of a soldier during a time of war. Shows what occurs to a person emotionally, physically, and mentally when put through the stress of combat.
I thought it was a striking war story, honest and with the right amount of drama. I caught myself saying "it's a touch dramatic" but... so is war probably.
Dramatic. Eloquent. Uniform
This classic is an excellent and proved a captivating read for me. As an American it was amazing to cross over the trenches and her how a German experienced the Great War. I also enjoyed his reflections of relating to his comrades, his family, civilian life, and the enemy.
A strikingly reflective piece that Frank Muller tells beautifully. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting a relatively short, yet deep novel about how war changes a person.
