Good-natured and garrulous, Švejk becomes the Austro-Hungarian army's most loyal Czech soldier when he is called up on the outbreak of the First World War - although his bumbling attempts to get to the front serve only to prevent him from reaching it. Playing cards, getting drunk, and becoming a general nuisance, the resourceful Švejk uses all his natural cunning and genial subterfuge to deal with the doctors, police, clergy, and officers who chivvy him towards battle. The story of a "little man" caught in a vast bureaucratic machine, The Good Soldier Švejk combines dazzling wordplay and piercing satire to create a hilariously subversive depiction of the futility of war.

Interesting, hilarious, confusing at times, entertaining, addictive, amazing! This book was recommended to me by my parents and to be honest I don't really read books about war...at all. But after I started listening to this audio book I was hooked! Would recommend it to anyone!
no story. just empty talk
very dull and boring book, waited for the story but it never came. It started and ended on the same note.
