Publisher's Summary

Diamond Head, Hawaii, 1941. Pvt. Robert E. Lee Prewitt is a champion welterweight and a fine bugler. But when he refuses to join the company's boxing team, he gets "the treatment" that may break him or kill him. First Sgt. Milton Anthony Warden knows how to soldier better than almost anyone, yet he's risking his career to have an affair with the commanding officer's wife. Both Warden and Prewitt are bound by a common bond: the Army is their heart and blood...and, possibly, their death.

In this magnificent but brutal classic of a soldier's life, James Jones portrays the courage, violence and passions of men and women who live by unspoken codes and with unutterable despair. The most important American novel to come out of World War II, this is a masterpiece that captures as no other the honor and savagery of men.

    "Awesome story - horrible reading"
    What made the experience of listening to From Here to Eternity the most enjoyable?

    turning it off


    What didn’t you like about Elijah Alexander’s performance?

    His characters are absolutely horrendous. Had to turn this off after a few hours. I tried to listen, but the voices he makes make it impossible to listen.

    Story
    "Stinks. Can't finish it."
    Would you try another book from James Jones and/or Elijah Alexander?

    Neither. Don't like the story, don't like the narrator. The narrator is very disrespectful of some of the characters, and gives them voices and vocal ticks I've never heard, and are very irritating.


    What could James Jones have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Don't write any more books


    Would you be willing to try another one of Elijah Alexander’s performances?

    No


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Yuck.


    Any additional comments?

    I gave it one star, because negative stars wasn't an option.
