The excellent reading just flows, whereas reading this very sad material would have been hard to go through in print form.
Muller's reading is not overly dramatic.
The protagonist, Paul, is a sensitive, tender boy, turned into a hardened soldier. He also gives us a short glimpse to his life away from the front. The juxtaposition of these two extremes makes the reader feel more intensely the hardships of WW1.
