    "Moving On . . ."

    In this volume, the characters introduced in Regeneration move on. Sassoon is sent back to the front; the doctor joins a colleague in London; Billy Pryor joins the intelligence force. Most of this novel takes place not on the battelfield but back in the UK. Barker's intention was likely to show the war's effect on the common citizen. I enjoyed this but still think the first book in the series is the best.

    Story
    "Effects of the Great War"

    This is book two in the award winning Regeneration Trilogy. The series is a historical novel about World War One. Book one took place at Craiglockhart Hospital with Dr. Rivers and Siegfried Sassoon as the key characters; both these men were real, Dr. Rivers was a famous physiatrist who treated mental problems caused by the war and Sassoon was a famous poet of WWI.

    This book features Dr. Rivers and the fictional character Billy Prior. Prior is an officer from the working class which made him feel he never fit in with the other officers. I found the information about the state of art of mental health knowledge and treatment interesting. Dr. Rivers discovers that Billy has ‘fugue states’ and has Multiple Personality Disorder or what they now call dissociative Identity Disorder. In the book Barker goes into more detail of the changing class structure taking place in England with World War One. Sassoon is featured briefly in the story along with a discussion of some of his poems.

    The book is well written and well researched. I enjoyed the skill of the narrator reading the dialogue of the working class with phrases such as ‘barmy buggers’ and ‘a bit of bread and scrape.’ I remember my great grandmother using these same phrases. I am looking forward to book three in the trilogy. Peter Firth does an excellent job narrating the book.
