Publisher's Summary

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 inscrutable 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.

    "Gritty war brought to life"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a classic, often taught in school. Somehow I never read it back then, though I had heard of it often. The story is compelling, even if depressing. The reality of the life of soldier in the trenches in WW I is very much brought to life.

    "Gripping"
    If you could sum up All Quiet on the Western Front in three words, what would they be?

    Heart-rending, passionate, gritty


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Paul, through whose eyes the whole story unfolds


    Have you listened to any of Frank Muller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Muller brings character and depth to this work. He makes it as believable as if he were there

    "Public Domain"

    I was looking to see if the library had this book on audio, and to my disappointment, they didn't have it. How can they not have the classics? I was really happy that Audible had this title because it's been on my list to read for a very long time.

    Listening to the late Frank Muller's voice is a gift to itself because any listener knows that he had a special gift of bringing books alive. Although, I was delighted to hear Muller's voice again, there were a lot of silent pauses in between paragraphs and chapters. It became somewhat distracting to listen to the story, but his voice brings back lots of memories of books in my inventory.

    Recorded Books should release this book in the public domain for all to listen to because All Quiet on the Western Front is a classic and there is no generation gap for superb writing.

    Story
    "Greatest war novel ever written"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, telling the friend that this tells what war is really like on our young men and women and previews the lives of soldiers who come home.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    the schoolteacher who goads the young men to enlist. It reminds me of chickenhawks that pound thier chest with other peoples lives (i.e. Dick Cheney)


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where Paul goes home on leave and has a respite from the war.


    Who was the most memorable character of All Quiet on the Western Front and why?

    The main character Paul because of his ability to communicate the reality of war yet portray it as really a battle of leaders, fought by ordinary men who's lives are likely the same on both sides.

    "That's why they call it a classic."
    Any additional comments?

    Although it was written decades ago about a war few know much about, it is a story that has just as much power now as then. Lyrical.

    "A timeless story of war"

    Whether it be 1918 or 2016, horrors of war are still the same, no matter your nationality. A soldier's story spans nationalities and circumstances, no matter the source.

    Performance, was a very dramatic portrayal of the ugliness of war.

    "Moving. Terrible. Amazing. It made me weep."

    Frank Muller deserves some kind of award for this- he took a true classic and made it absolutely REAL . The performance, story and direction are the best I've heard.

    Story
    ""...the first explosion, burst in our hearts.""

    A beautifully written, first person account of a 19 year old German soldier's harrowing experience of World War I. Fighting on the Front Line, the horrors of treatment in the numerous hospitals, the sense of loss and dissasociation experienced on leave and the deep sense of comradeship shared by these young men, the novel gives one a full sense of how war destroys a person long before their life is lost.
