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.

©1958 Erich Maria Remarque (P)1994 Recorded Books, LLC

    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.

    "This performance is dark"

    I read this in high school and it didnt grab me. Now that I am older, history has become much more interesting and mainly thanks to Dan Carlin. So after listening to the Hardcore History series on WW1 and being able to think about nothing else, I decided it was time to give this book another go. I believe this one is best listened to. The print version makes some of the German names tough to pronounce and I feel it kind of takes me out of the story. Now as an adult this book is incredible. It's dark as hell and frankly I am surprised this was a high school read. Frank Muller did a good job reading this in a gruff believable way, really felt like he was a soldier. Highly recommend this for anyone interested, and if you dig this, listen to Blueprint for Armageddon, the Hardcore History series.

    "A well performed classic."

    Fantastic novel capturing the human side of war. Humorous, horrible, real. The performance is well done, with enough voice alteration to keep characters straight but not over do it. My one complaint is the narrators natural voice and cadence is very relaxing...too relaxing for a long road trip in my case. Still, very happy I took the time to finish this book at home.

    "The Best novel about war."

    This is the best story about war that I've ever read (heard). If you are the least bit interested in this title, don't hesitate to give it a try. You won't regret it.

    "Amazing stuff"

    This story, told by a soldier during WWI, really captured me. I am not and have never been in active warfare, but the author and the narrator this book really make the reader feel the passion, and terror of war. Normally I would not be interested in such a book, but this one really grabbed me, and made me see war as the terrible and futile mess that it is.
