War novels, are you interested?

Postby Arale » Thu Sep 07, 2006 2:38 pm

Do you enjoy war novels? My favourite is 'A farewell to arms' by Ernest Hemingway. I suppose 'The English patient' is quite like 'A farewell to arms'. Some Russian ones are good too but I read them when I was so small so not remembering much. Reading those novels, I think we can understand history more easily. However, most novels I've read have pessimistic ends and death is always exploited as the nature of wars. Sometimes, it's like in a impasse to read them.

Yep, but as I said above, I think it's like 'A farewell to arms' so I have no interest with it.

"'A farewell to arms' by Ernest Hemingway"

i studied last Semester at American litrature i like but i have my comments on first why women in this novel are so weak and follwed men if we look at Chathrine chracter we see that only at end of novel shoes some brave by saying that "iam not fraid form death ...i just heat it"

i think that Tomorrow the sun will rise by same author is more better :~:



about "An english patient" i did not read it buti watched as moive it so good in the way how he draw the raltionships with chrarchers in parraller with war

and finally "War and peace" - Tolstoy it's lovely but so long it is an epic rather than novle

tell me what do u yhink about HEART OF DRAKNESS and A passage to india they are about Colonization period and war

cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeers
