    On a bright September morning in 1939, two days after Britain declares war on Germany, a group of privileged but desperate people gather in Southhampton to board the largest, most luxurious airliner ever built - the Pan American Clipper - bound for New York.

    Daniel Mcafee says: "Fun Listen"

    What would have made Night over Water better?

    a better narrator, such as Frank Muller


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator, Casaletto, did a dreadful job with English accents. I gave up after a couple of chapters.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Extreme dissapointment with the narrator.

    Paul Bäumer is just 19 years old when he and his classmates enlist. They are Germany’s Iron Youth who enter the war with high ideals and leave it disillusioned or dead. As Paul struggles with the realities of the man he has become, and the world to which he must return, he is led like a ghost of his former self into the war’s final hours. All Quiet is one of the greatest war novels of all time, an eloquent expression of the futility, hopelessness and irreparable losses of war.

    Alan says: "My Choice for Frank Muller's Best"
    "Best war story ever written. Author is WWI vet."
