    1. I don't 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 am grateful to my friend Rose for recommending it. The book, first published in the late 1920s, is an absolutely heartbreaking, wonderfully written novel about the permanent damage done to those who fight in wars. Few anti-war novels written since have matched Erich Maria Remarque's unsettling book, and I doubt any have surpassed it.Given how famous "All Quiet" is, there's little ne [...]

    2. Man, I need a break. I've been reading about the First World War solidly since December and I've had enough now. There's only so many times you can go through the same shit, whether they're English, French, German, Russian – oh look, another group of pals from school, eagerly jogging down to the war office to sign up. Brilliant. Now it's just a matter of guessing which horrible death will be assigned to them: shrapnel to the stomach, bleeding to death in no-man's-land, drowning in mud, succumb [...]

    3. There are already thousands of reviews for this deeply moving and heartbreaking book here on , and I don't know that I could add anything new. It simply broke my heart. However I do feel really strongly that I should describe the vivid imagery that I'm left with. Bright red poppies in bloodied fields Where death stalked its victims. It cared not for age, creed, or nationality What would they have achieved in life, These young men, with so much yet to experience, So many dreams to fulfilIf duty h [...]

    4. The greatest war novel?Maybe.This was one of the first books that made me think that even though I wanted to be a writer someday, maybe I did not have what it takes. This was a sharp, swift kick in the gut; a none too subtle reminder that there are somber, very real and poignant moments captured in literature that escape petty categorization and cynicism, there are real moments that cannot be trivialized and placed on a genre specific bookshelf. Powerful.

    5. It has to be the defining novel of World War I, told from the point of view of a German soldier fighting in the trenches of France. This is not a novel of romance, intrigue, and adventure; it is a stark and frightingly realistic description of what it must have been like trying to survive from one day to the next, and almost always failing. Difficult and disturbing to read, it nevertheless is a narrative of how war is horrible, and hopefully why the telling of it may help deter future wars.

    6. I was finishing a phase of reading and teaching facets of the First World War, and it would not be complete without this fictitious, but realistic portrait of a soldier's life in the trenches on the Western frontI was reading excerpts from "All Quiet On The Western Front" in class, with students staring at me, some of them understanding for the first time what it really meant to be a soldier in the trenches, sent out to die under the banner of nationalism - which was an entirely positive word ba [...]

    7. Five heartbreaking stars for this classic novel about World War I. I first read All Quiet on the Western Front my freshman year of college, thanks to Dr. K's humanities course. During this re-read, I paused not only in appreciation of what soldiers and their families suffer during war, but also for all the great teachers who spend their days trying to inspire students to have Perspective and Big Ideas and to Think Critically. I remember how meaningful it was to read this book when I was 19, and [...]

    8. … all the memories that come are always completely calm They are soundless apparitions that speak to me, with looks and gestures silently, without any word They are quiet in this way because quietness is so unattainable for us now Their stillness is the reason why these memories of former times do not awaken desire so much as sorrow – a vast, inapprehensible melancholy. Once we had such desires- but they return not. They are past, they belong to another world that is gone from us.4 ½ Remarq [...]

    9. My copy of this was a paperback that I had picked up somewhere in my high school years. It was printed in the ‘50s and cost 60 cents per the cover price. The pages were yellowed and an old dog of mine (dead 20 years now) chewed on a corner of it at one point, and his teeth marks are still on it. But I held onto that copy over the years through multiple changes of residence and numerous paperback dumps to used book stores and library donations. When I was trying to organize some of my stuff pac [...]

    10. I am silent. What can I say? Here I have been, for the last year or two, searching for books on WW1. I have read fiction and non-fiction and biographies. This thin little book has more of an impact than any other I have read.This is a book to be read many times. Not only is it profound in message, but the author writes beautifully. Can humor be incorporated into a book with such a serious message? Yes, Remarque pulls this off too. This thin book perfectly captures- war in the trenches- mustard g [...]

    11. All Quiet on the Western Front (or, to give it its German title, Nothing New in the West) has been hailed as the best war novel ever, and it's easy to see why. World War I is described in such vivid non-glory in its pages that you are sucked into the story straight away and stay there for the next two hundred pages. It is obvious that the author, Erich Maria Remarque, had first-hand experience of the things he writes about; the details are so right and authentic-sounding that they couldn't possi [...]

    12. Paul Baumer needs you to see things from his perspective. Paul is a German soldier, posted on the Western Front during World War I. Paul hangs out with his buddies and tries to keep things loose, but Paul can’t rid himself from the stress of battle. He goes home on leave and everything is tainted with war. No matter what he does or who he’s with, Paul’s mind drifts toward the front. Paul’s world view has been changed in significant ways.On the front Paul is consumed with death. Paul sees [...]

    14. Oh my God. I will never again hear the platitude that "war is a deplorable necessity" without throwing up. Talk about books that get under your skin.Detailed review below.***During my teens, war for me was heroic. It was the battleground of justice – the Dharmakshetra Kurukshetra of the Mahabharata war – where the good guys defeated the evil guys. And in the thrillers which I read in those days (Alistair MacLean, Jack Higgins et al) the good guys were the British and Americans, the bad guys [...]

    15. "I am young, I am twenty years of age; but I know nothing of life except despair, death, fear, and the combination of completely mindless superficiality with an abyss of suffering. I see people being driven against one another, and silently, uncomprehendingly, foolishly, obediently and innocently killing one another. I see the best brains in the world inventing weapons and words to make the whole process that much more sophisticated and long-lasting. And watching this with me are all my contempo [...]

    16. This is the second book that I've very nearly given five stars this year. All Quiet on the Western Front is the story of one young man fresh out of school who is sent to the front line with his classmates and must survive the horrors of war. I have a deep interest in the First World War in particular and I've never read anything (not even a poem) that deals with war in such a way as this.It is unforgiving and unapologetic in it's truth. The horrors of war are laid bare and every single thought t [...]

    17. 667. ‭‎Im Westen nichts Neues = A l'ouest rien de novreau = All Quiet on The Western Front = In the West Nothing New, Erich Maria Remarque (1898 - 1970)All Quiet on the Western Front (German: Im Westen nichts Neues, lit. 'In the West Nothing New') is a novel by Erich Maria Remarque, a German veteran of World War I. The book describes the German soldiers' extreme physical and mental stress during the war, and the detachment from civilian life felt by many of these soldiers upon returning home [...]

    18. The Power of Words in Depicting WarBased on the real life war experiences of its author, this novel is the most vivid I've read on the horrors of war. It's certainly the best-known book about the atrocities of trench warfare in World War I. The novel struck me speechless by the end, stunning me most by the dichotomy of its fresh and immaculate prose against the bleakness and despair of the war's death and destruction, all in such a relatively short novel. This combination of words, war and brevi [...]

    19. Yeah ! My first 5 star read of 2014. Excellent- A mesmerizing and vivid account of war.I bought this novel as an audio book for $2.95 on Audible's daily deal and firstly I have to say the narrator was excellent but after a few pages I realized I just had to have the physical book as the writing was so beautiful I needed to have the book in my hand and re-read some of the wonderfully constructed sentances.This is a story about Paul, a young German soldier who goes to war along with some of his co [...]

    20. Προχθές ήμασταν ακόμη στη φωτιά, σήμερα κάνουμε το χαζό και ζούμε όπως έρχεται. Αύριο θα ξαναγυρίσουμε στο χαράκωμα. Πραγματικά, όμως, τίποτα δε λησμονούμε. Όσο βρισκόμαστε στην εκστρατεία, οι περασμένες μέρες του μετώπου πέφτουν σαν πέτρες στα βάθη του είναι μας. Γιατί είν [...]

    21. They were young. They were twenty-year-old. The war has stolen their youth.“To me the front is a mysterious whirlpool. Though I am in still water far away from its centre, I feel the whirl of the vortex sucking me slowly, irresistibly, inescapable into itself.From the earth, from the air, sustaining forces pour into us—mostly from the earth. To no man does the earth mean so much as to the soldier. When he presses himself down upon her long and powerfully, when he buries his face and his limb [...]

    22. This book is an extremely powerfully written book highlighting many of the horrors the men who fought in WWI experienced. Telling it from the viewpoint of a young man, Paul, who we first meet as a student makes it more personal for the reader. They enlist with the bravado of the young, fighting for their country, a sense of adventure that once in the trenches they quickly lose.The nightmare that was trench warfare, seeing your friends killed and many times not sure where your next bit of food wo [...]

    23. When a spade is called an entrenching tool, and an entrenching tool is the ultimate weaponI read this at school and I'm not sure how much I remember from the book and how much from seeing film versions. Taking in the civilian side from school days and the homefront gives a different impression than the military focus of the British war poets.Re-Reading I'm struck how the narrator is self-effacing, like in the old days the teacher writing on the board in chalk but half rubbing each word off uncon [...]

    24. “I am young, I am twenty years old; yet I know nothing of life but despair, death, fear, and fatuous superficiality cast over an abyss of sorrow. I see how peoples are set against one another, and in silence, unknowingly, foolishly, obediently, innocently slay one another.” This quote sums this book up best. The main character is a modern soldier who fights in a war he considers senseless. Read this book because it is short and if you like it — read Johnny Got His Gun too.

    25. ‫" إني وحيد شريد ضائع الأمل لكني قدير على مواجهة الأيام بلا خوف ولا وجل.‬إن الحياة التي مرت بي هذه السنوات لا تزال تجيش في صدري، ولست أدري إن كنت أخمدت ضرامها واستنفذت نورها."_________كيف أخبرك أنني لا أستطيع التحدث عن الميدان، وأن أحلامي الخضراء اكفهَرّت وذبلت، وأن قلبي تشظّى [...]

    26. This is a novel I’ve been meaning to read for years and I’m not really sure what took me so long. It may just have been that I’ve never been much of a one for war literature. In any event, I wish I’d read it years ago. Even though Remarque disavowed any political purpose in writing the work, it’s the quintessential anti-war novel. The unspeakable horror of trench warfare, the fear, the boredom and the alienation are all unflinchingly described. This is powerful stuff and while there ar [...]

    27. Συνταρακτικό!! Ολη η φρικη και η κόλαση του πολέμου σε ένα βιβλίο. Ποσες ζωες έτσι άδικα χαμένες Μενεις βουβός μπροστά σε τόσο παραλογισμό.

    28. This book is short, but a must-have read for those understanding the humanity of war. While I cannot even imagine fighting deep in the trenches of WWI, braving shell shock and constant, brazen assaults on my front lines, I can sincerely identify with his feelings as a two-tour veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom.All military differences aside (at least this guy knew what his enemy looked like), the deep feelings when you lose one of your own are still dead on--even after all these years. Along wi [...]

    29. نویسنده کتاب، "رمارک" در مصاحبه ای در مورد این اثر گفته است : به نظر من بدیهی می‌ نمود که آدمها صلح‌ طلب یا ضدجنگ باشند. همیشه فکر می‌ کردم که همه‌ انسان‌ ها مخالف جنگ‌ اند، تا آنکه دریافتم کسانی هم هستند که موافق آن‌ اند، بخصوص کسانی که خود مجبور نیستند در آن شرکت کنند در غرب [...]

    30. This is by far the best book I have read so far this year. Absolutely breath-taking. This is a historical fiction set during World War I. We follow the story of a small group of young boys who are taken from the classroom and drafted into the Germany army. They go from sitting at their school desks to laying facedown in the mud on the frontline, attempting to avoid being killed. As the story goes on each of these boys meets a tragic end, we see them through their training all the way up to their [...]
