There are already thousands of reviews for this deeply moving and heartbreaking book here at Goodreads, and I do not know if I could add something new. It just broke my heart. However, I really believe that I should describe the vivid images that I have left. Bright red poppies in bloody fields where death lurked its victims. He did not care about age, creed or nationality. What they would have achieved in life. These young people, with much to experience, so many dreams to fulfill.

I do not know why it took me so long to get to "All Quiet on the Western Front", but I'm glad I finally read it and I'm grateful to my friend Rose for recommending it. The book, published for the first time in the late 1920s, is an absolutely heartbreaking and wonderfully written novel about the permanent damage inflicted on those who fight in wars. Few novels against war written since then coincide with the disturbing book by Erich Maria Remarque, and I doubt that it has been overcome. Given how famous "All Quiet" is, there's not much I do not know why it took me so long to arrive.

Few novels against war written since then coincide with the disturbing book by Erich Maria Remarque, and I doubt that it has been overcome. Given how famous "All Quiet" is, there's no need for you to say much about it here. (In addition, it is much easier to write negative than positive reviews, and I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this book.) However, there are several harrowing passages that I hope will follow me for a long time, and that I feel the need to mention: the permission of Paul Bäumer, during which it is almost impossible for him to relate normally with his family after his experiences at the front; Paul's time in a hole with the French soldier GÃ © rard Duval; the brief interlude between Paul and his comrades with a group of French girls, and how the girl he had paired with treats him at the end; and, of course, the scene near the end of the book that involves Stanislaus Katczinsky, easily the most interesting character of "All Quiet". (I will not say anything about the scene with Kat so as not to spoil it for those who have not yet read the book.) One last thought, which I mention from Logan's comment that he did not like "All Quiet", which he read for the last time in high school. I have talked about this before, most recently in my review of "The Sea Lion", and I feel the need to re-raise it: it seems that many American readers have bad memories of the great works of literature to which they were made. reading at school The fact that they were forced to read books is, of course, part of the problem, but I also believe that schoolchildren are often assigned books for which they are not yet ready. I do not mean that they are not smart enough to read and understand books, but that they are not mature enough for books to resonate adequately with them. This would definitely be true for "All Quiet." It would be the most unusual of high school students, one in a hundred, maybe many, who could really appreciate the problems raised in this book. I would encourage anyone who has not read "All Quiet" yet to take a look. And for those who read it at school and were left with a bad taste in their mouth, it's probably time to review the book. That means you, Logan. ...Plus
