All Quiet on the Western Front

( 47 )

Overview

Paul Baumer enlisted with his classmates in the German army of World War I. Youthful, enthusiastic, they become soldiers. But despite what they have learned, they break into pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches. And as horrible war plods on year after year, Paul holds fast to a single vow: to fight against the principles of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against each other--if only he can come out of the war ...

Read an Excerpt

"Summer of 1918-Never was life in the line more bitter and more full of horror than in the hours of the bombardment, when the blanched faces lie in the dirt and the hands clutch at the one thought: No! No! Not now! Not now at the last moment!"
—from All Quiet on the Western Front

    Very disappointed in this copy

    Very upset. Bought this copy for 2.99 and was excited to pay such a good price until I doscovered it only has the first 135 pages! What a ripoff. Wish I could get a refund...

    Highly recommended - war IS hell.

    Though this is a short book, the content is powerful and thought provoking. Every world leader should be required to read this along with all officers of militaries throughout the world.

    Excellent Story of War and What it Does to Man

    Every wanna-be leader needs to read this before they take office. The story of one mans thoughts, and I would think possibly every person that has served on the front line of war, as he and his comrads live and die fighting during WW1. Much more of a psychological excercise than a blow by blow descriptiin of battle.

    A story you'll want to read over and over again

    It says on a paperback version of this book, "the greatest war story ever told," because it is the best war story ever told.

    Very boring. I hated it! Just wanted it end.

    I had to read this book for school and I couldn't wait for it to end! It was very boring, hard to understand what Paul was trying to say, not very engaing. I thought this book would take me 4 days to read but ended up taking 2 weeks to finish. Even for me, a fast reader, this book was hard to read. I had to force myself to keep reading. very dry, hated it. :(

    Should be required for everybody

    I love how you guys got the ebook right after I finished reading it from the library - since there wasn't an ebook! Story of my life..... Anyway, here's the review:

    This book needs to be required reading for anybody who thinks war is glorious. War is a horrible thing, and nearly every sentence in this book goes a long way towards imbedding that reality deeply into the consciousness of the reader. It's not hard to lose track of which war they're fighting, or which side they're fighting on - this book could have been written from the perspective of any soldier in any war, from any country, from any time period. I have not watched either of the films yet, but intend to do so as soon as possible. Please, read this book.

    Excellent!

    This novel is perfect in all regards. I have to read it for eighth grade english over the summer, and i have to write an essay. It crafts a vibrant picture about the life of soldiers during WW1, and the destructive result of war for the "youth" generation fighting it.

    Beautiful...

    The book conquers without persuading, it shakes you without exaggerating, a perfect work of art and at the same time truth that cannot be doubted. An incredibly moving and beautifully written book.
