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.

    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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Still oh so relevant..."

    The horrors of war and the camaraderie that makes it bearable and at the same time unbearable shines through. It is hard to believe that 88 years after its first publish it can still transfix the 21st century psyche. A must read for anyone who would put 'glory' and 'war' in the same sentence. In terms of the translation... Minimal disjointed thoughts but otherwise smooth. In terms of the narration... Superb.

    "So so narrator."

    Hard to listen to a story about German soldiers with American accents. Thought provoking intelligent story though.

    Story
    "Historical fiction stopping all stations "

    I would recommend this book to anyone who played "Spec Ops: The Line."

    "All Quiet" captures every facet of war, from the mundane to the profane, everywhere capturing glints of humor and beauty in an otherwise abysmal hellscape.

    As for the recording, there are points when the narrator's s hisses in the recording. Otherwise, his vocal variety in speed, tone, volume, etc. all convey the emotional picture painted in each scene.

    Story
    "Heavy hitting WWI brutality of war experience"

    If you ever find yourself enthralled over reviewing war history from the comfort of your armchair and excitedly deciphering tactical commands and war victoryfrom hindsight.
    Then take a step back into the front lines of WWI from the eyes of a youthful common German soldier, a young man who grew calloused and hardened on the front lines.
    This account is extremely powerful and conveys emotions and pain from real loss and love.
    Highly recommended for mature thinkers that don't mind feeling some pain.
