This book is a must read if you are a world War II history buff! The Thin Red Line shows the struggle of C for Charlie Company in the 1st Battalion of a Regiment of either the 25th Division or the Americal Division on Gaudalcanal in late 1942- early 1943. This book is very realistic and shows the horor of combat and life in the jungles of the South Pacific. If you do not like the movie do not let that discourage you the movie is nothing like the book, the book is 100 times better.

If you didn't like the movie, don't let that deter you from reading the book. One of the most outstanding novels I've read in my entire life - I finished all 500 pages in less than two days.

Also suggests the movie. don't expect it to be the same as the amazing book...expect it to be different and equally magical

This book was a disturbing account of young American soldiers landing in Guadalcanal during WWII.  It's gritty, realistic and definitely not for the faint of heart.  The Thin Red Line depicts the men as average guys who got drafted and landed on the hot, mosquito infested island, with the purpose of flushing out the Japanese.  These were ordinary men, no heroes whose main mission as they saw it was to stay alive. The well-written book should be required reading for anyone believing we should jump into another war.

Than action , personality rather than adventure. his popularity might have continued if he could have adjusted to a different genre combo. after wars the reader wants less angst.

This book wasn't bad, but I have read alot better. I felt the characters were to numerous and vague.

This book did not exsite me. In a book I like war, advencher, quick endings (not a ending that drags on), action, and a short book. The books good points are that it had war, little advencher, and little action. What I didn't like about the book is that at the begging it took a long time befor it got to the action, the action was not the best not very exsiting, and the ending seamed to drag on. Yes the book had war, some action and little advencher. But all the battles were not exsiting, they were short.
