Ellinor's Litventures

This blog is about my literary adventures in different genres. I like variety in my reading and will read books from most genres but particulary book with some literary merit.

#BookADay - Day 8: Favourite Great War Novel

Im Westen nichts Neues - Erich Maria Remarque

I've somehow dedicated this year to reading novels on the Great War. I've enjoyed (as far as you can enjoy books on this occurence) all the books I've read on it so far. But among all these books there was one that sticks out and that is All Quiet on the Western Front. It is just absolutely brilliant. The descriptions of the war, the people's injuries and their situation at the front are completely ruthless but I think that's the only way to really show the horrors of war.
