    "An incredible story"

    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.

    "Felt obliged, but not entertaining"
    What did you like best about All Quiet on the Western Front? What did you like least?

    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.


    What three words best describe Frank Muller’s performance?

    Dramatic. Eloquent. Uniform

    "Very good but tragic"

    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.

    Story
    "All is Quiet But Not At Ease"

    All Quiet on the Western, by Erich Maria Remarque and narrated by Frank Muller. Just a short simple story about going to war and having battle in WWI. Perhaps though, the most profound insight into war’s horror ever written.

    The novel tells the story of a German soldier’s detachment from humanity once set out as a combatant. No other fiction has ever achieved a more pronounced and accurate description of the physical and mental state of combatants. If you are going to comment on war, and have not fought yourself, you must read this seminal novel; or be a hypocrite.

    The book practically opens with its teachings put into two full sentences: "This book is to be neither an accusation nor a confession, and least of all an adventure, for death is not an adventure to those who stand face to face with it. It will try simply to tell of a generation of men who, even though they may have escaped (its) shells, were destroyed by the war."

    This is among the most effective works of literature ever written.

    "Literary genius and the timeless voice of Frank Muller"

    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.

    "Great story, among Frank Muller's best narrations"

    Along with Frank Muller's reading of "Moby Dick" (one of the best audiobooks I've ever heard), this one shows why Mr. Muller was one of the great narrators.

    This book is great. If you haven't read it or heard it read (or even if you heard it read by someone else), you will not be disappointed by this great audiobook.

    It's truly heartbreaking that this was written about WWI, and we still had WWII.

    "Stop whar you are doing and listen to this book"

    This is an absolutely beautiful book with images and poetry that moves one to greater thoughts. Although the subject is dire, every high school student and parent should be exposed to the questions this book raises.

    Frank Muller's narration is mesmerizing, it is worth listening to for Frank's voice alone.
