There are some books that should be read by every generation. 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

This is one of those books that keeps being taught in schools. Damned good thing, too. Everyone should read it. It is heartrending, horrifying, beautiful and not a word wasted. Very short book that will stay with you long after you read it--haunting in that way that the best books are.

Remarque is an honest writer. When he writes of war he depicts it honestly. Read this, then read the rest of his writings.

This is stupid embarrassing, but the name of the main character is Paul Baeumer, and the author's name is Erich Remarque, but the book felt so real I thought I was reading a real autobiographical history of a soldier in WWI until the very end.

The point is, yes, I'm stupid, but also how amazing real the book reads.

The other thing I think is that this book wouldn't have been nearly as effective if it were an account of a soldier on the winning side. Duh, you who have read the book say. It's all about the futility of war. Well, yeah, but still.
