A masterpiece: enjoyable and appealing, 15 Feb 2013
Linguistic mastery and dry humour at its best - both making the message of the novel all the more chilling. For its urgent appeal to humanity, this is a classic alongside E.M.Remarque, Ernest Hemingway, Alexander Solzhenytsyn, Primo Levi or Simon Wiesenthal. It is probably the most easily accessible of Cummings's work and I would recommend it to anyone who is being introduced to Cummings' writing and may feel put off by the complexity of his poetry.
This is one of the books one keeps reading over and over and never ceases to enjoy.
