    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.

    "It was better than I expected"

    I did not enjoy this book but I am happy that I was able to listen to this classic. The narration helped the story but I didn't totally enjoy it. Just not my type of book!

    Story
    "The honesty of a thousand suns"

    I wish this book were irrelevant - I wish we had stopped sending our young men and women to be cannon fodder. But unfortunately for us, this book is more relevant now than ever before. The honest words of a 19 year old perplexed and grown old much before time, burn my soul.

    A word about the narration - it is a very competent rendering. The best compliment I can give it is that it never gets in the way of the words. Well done.

    "Fabulous story!"

    A fantastic piece of writing. The author must have served time in the trenches during First World War. Reads like poetry. Horrible story told with tears and pain. I loved this beautifully read story.

    "Quality production and performance"

    Neither the audio quality or performance got in the way of enjoying this classic book. Frank Muller did an excellent job.

    Story
    "Fantastic Book, Excellent Narration"

    First off, the narration for this book is some of the best I've come across on audible. Clear, crisp pronunciation, perfect inflection and just the right amount of emotion.

    The story itself is a classic and with good reason. All Quiet on the Western Front shows the horrors and trials of war without being sanctimonious or heavy handed. It has no agenda save to recount the experiences of the young men participating in World War I, for whom the war was less about King and county and more about survival. This is not war-porn for armchair generals, this is the brutal, touching, and occasionally humorous story about the individuals who die in droves for the agendas of people they will never meet.

    Despite dealing with events from nearly one hundred years ago, the story feels relevant and topical and even if you have never served in the military some of the thoughts and feelings discussed are nearly universal.

    Story
    "Haunting"
    What did you love best about All Quiet on the Western Front?

    I loved that this story was about so much more than war. This is about the human experience. It has been one of the most moving books I have ever read/listened to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The variation of mini stories, from almost cute tales of boyhood to the trauma of a devastating war.


    What does Frank Muller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voices are done perfectly...


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I almost cried, and did plenty of laughing. It has left me feeling almost melancholy and hoping for so much more.


    Any additional comments?
