Desnudos de prejuicios (Hobbies) et l ancien soldat une forme de paixFond musical Symphonie triste Jean Sibelius This novel is the seuel to Remarue s most famous All uiet on the Western Front It is a collective portrait of the returning soldiers from the Great War who failed to reckon with the make believe peace that followed Thexperience at the front shattered them from the rest of the world This is no longer our world the trenches ousted it The loss of comradeship mostly due to the divisive force of revolution also featured as a major source of despair Things were simpler at the front where comrades marched together noble and good A nice mess we have made of it I Frasers Bride (Harlequin Romance, expected to gain historical information about post war Germany from this novel which it didn t offer but still a traumatizingly superb read Of all the prose writers I have yet read none can surpass Remarue No writer I havencountered understands the human condition as deeply as he does For Remarue s characters life is a symbiosis death and loss on the one hand camaraderie and one s ability to The Glass Cockpit enmesh oneself in the wonder of nature with all its hopeful healing potential on the other A fitting yet uniue follow up to its notorious predecessor this novel is a scathing indictment of war and the betrayal of not just a generation or a single nation but a snapshot into the brutalisation of anntire world its people its Ophelia ecology Ultimately though it is an authentic tale of survival and a magnificent testament to human fragility friendship andndurance This book perfectly describes the aimlessness after a war and the state in which people are left The scars for life and why we have had so many grandparents who can only talk about the war they never got over it The lack of care and understanding cuts to the bone. By their bitterness about what they find in post war society A captivating story one of Remarue's best. PTSD in post WWI Germany the seuel to All uiet on the Western Front Episodic not always linear first person narrator although it sometimes feels like a close third or ven a sort of omniscient first person when thanks to Ernst s deep connection with his troubled former comrades scenes are dramatized that the narrator couldn t know about friend returning to the trenches alone at night and then shooting himself how a room feels after another friend cuts open an artery and bleeds out Teenagers taught to fight and survive to kill and make it through dreaming of home and returning alive holding up their return as their hope have trouble reacclimating of course when they finally return and sit with loved ones and see the familiar landscape of their youth as a potential battlefield have no patience for fine phrases about heroism or The Fatherland or anything along those lines find their studies total bullshit can t sit in a classroom and teach penmanship to 7 to 10 year olds when the horror they ve xperienced the sense of betrayal solely occupies their mind Highlands each of a handful of comrades not so deeply characterized stage II case of disembodied proper noun syndrome try to make their way back to a semblance of sustainablexistence some sort of coming to terms Ernst ultimately finds a sort of peace via mindfulmystical communion with nature lying down in the grass alone just looking listening being some not at all Lacks the drive and blatant high stakes of the other EMR novels I ve read I m on a completist uest FYI and have five or six others on a shelf in order of publication ready to go this year Almost started skimming midway but right when I started to think three stars could devolve to two it picked up and Manual de limpieza de un monje budista (Perimetro (duomo)) ended tremendously As always with EMR what s triggered completism there are moments ofxtreme vividness up there with Prince Andrei on his back looking at blue sky Proust s Misery Loves Cabernet elevating airplane Leopold Bloom s kidney sliding in his frying pan Bartlebooth s watercolors returning to the oceantc in this it s a war veteran sheep dog named Wolf fighting with the farmer s bulldog Pluto and then later doing what he s been bred to do xcelling at herding sheep although he was raised on the battlefield Wolf s road back is hard wired or when the comrades run to the suare with their faces of the trench as the military led by a former comrade threatens to turn a machine gun on a crowd of labor protestors led by a former Jewish comrade or a scene at an official military sanctioned brothel when Ernst the narrator loses his virginity the classroom scene when the young veteran students revolt against the principal s fine phrases of heroism and again at the nd the courtroom scene when the comrades rise up against the judge and lawyer in defense of their friend s murder of a man who d been macking on a woman who d been his only beacon through it all Was worried about this one and a little disappointed until page 180 or so but from now on I ll be completely confident that EMR will deliver He was dramatizing boredom and dissatisfaction which always makes what follows all the better although in this it felt like it went on a few dozen pages too long and wasn t sufficiently concentrated But generally this is another great EMR novel since it s about PTSD well before the term was coined it lacks the sense that death could visit with very turned page but a worthwhile way to spend two long sittings today at jury duty Always stretches of top notch translated prose although in this the translation specially in dialogue occasionally seemed wonky thanks most likely to old German slang rendered as old British slang Also interesting in that it was published in 1931 so before the rise of the forces that would wreck verything hundreds of times over in a or so no lessons in this everything hundreds of times over in a decade or so no in this at all those young students of Ernst s would grow up to be in their 30s during WWII and the teens at the nd gleefully performing military ScaleX.ai, Multi-Channel Sales Acceleration: Powered by Artificial Intelligence (Sales Hack Book 3) exercises and calling WWI veterans cowards and traitors to The Fatherland foreshadow what s to come Hunger and inflation are only touched onGenerally I think I m interested in thisra for reasons related to rising fascism worldwide and Trumpism seeing our own times through the perspective fascism worldwide and Trumpism seeing our own times through the perspective 80 100 years ago in Europe the general sense of HEFT that runs through these novels that always levates the prose translated German is probably my favorite flavor in the English language but also because I m searching for Bolano s sources for the Hans Reiter section in 2666Here s a uotation representative of theme and translation although the language in this bit is a little levated since Ernst is waxing significantly from right before he decides he can t be a schoolteacher What am I able to teach you then Should I tell you how to pull the string on a hand grenade how best to throw it at a human being Should I mimic how a man with a stomach wound will groan how one with a lung wound gurgles and one with a head wound whistles More I do not know More I have not learned Should I take you to the brown and green map there move my finger across it and tell you that here love was murdered Should I Partial Discharge Detection In High Voltage Equipment explain to you that the books you hold in your hands are but nets with which men design to snare your simple souls tontangle you in the undergrowth of fine phrases and in the barbed wire of falsified ideasI stand here before you a polluted a guilty man and can only implore you ver to remain as you are never to suffer the bright light of your childhood to be misused as a blow flame of hate About your brows still blows the breath of innocence How then should I presume to teach you Behind me still pursuing are the bloody years How then can I venture among you Must I not first become a man again myself The Road back although less well known than All uiet on the Western Front is just as thought provoking and in subtle ways ven heart breakingThe story begins during the last few days of WWI As battle rages around them a group of young German soldiers contemplate what peace will be like and dream of returning home with both fear and longing They grieve for lost comrades who won t be returning with them but anticipate the joy of being back with friends and family of returning finally to their old livesWhen peace finally does arrive they head home anticipating a hero s welcome instead they are met with indifference and lack of understanding The people who had remained behind while they were off fighting for the Fatherland have continued their lives without them and for these people peace is not much different from war The Joy of Laziness: Why Life Is Better Slower � and How to Get There everything is pretty much the same But these young men have changed When they marched away to war they were just boys hardly than children with all the hopes and innocent dreams of youth they have returned as men old before their time damaged physically and psychically and they no longer fit into this civilized worldNothing is the same for them and they feel lost and betrayed Wives have taken lovers jobs once promised are now occupied by others who hadn t left they are too old and too restless to returnasily to their studies and they no longer respect those who once held authority over them parents teachers police They are scorned by the profiteers who became rich off the war and they have been forgotten by the girls they left behind They suffer from shell shock and depression and can.

oneis a favourite book of mine I had high War by Other Means expectations of the seuel It left me a bit disappointedIts predecessor was a hard act to follow I m notxactly surprisedthat the book is not as good Alsothe first book was about the warand was much intenseThis one is about returningand defeatedGerman soldiers trying to fit back into civilian life While trying to vade death was their constant preoccupation at the frontlife in peacetime is a lot slowerand cannot match that highTheir military skills have become useless after coming backMost of their fellow soldiers have been killedthere are food shortages and political unrest Their women have taken new loversThe dilemmas of returning soldiers are similar in all warsand are intense if they have been defeatedinjured and demobilisedWhat made the book disappointing for
