5.0 out of 5 stars A touching play that portrays the reality of WWI, 27 Sep 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Journey's End: Play (Heinemann Plays For 14-16+) (Hardcover)
I first read this play when I was studying for an English GCSE. To be honest, I didn't really expect much of it, as I don't always enjoy the books we are told to read. However, from the moment I opened it, I knew this was something special. Sherriff's realistic portrayal of the WWI trenches and the relationships between the men really do stay with you forever. I never wanted to put it down This is a gem of a book.

Like you I read this for O Level in the mid '60's, hated it, as I did and you did it seems, all those books that we were forced to read, as Edmund Blackadder said after punching William Shakespeare on the jaw, 'that's for generations of school(children)boys'!
I am now 62, and on my bookshelves are The Pied Piper, Richard The 3rd, and very soon this play. Many of those books that I cursed various English teachers over the years for as I struggled to make sense of them for homework are on my Kindle! Ok so I haven't gotten round to reading that many, but I have read and re-read A Christmas Carol, Oliver Twist and Great Expectations, Julius Cheser I have yet to tackle.
Megan Roberts and John Waterfield, if you are still alive I bet you'd be proud of me now, and I got my degree when I was 40! Not in English though! Not bad for a bloke my Headmaster reckoned would end up either a farm labourer or in prison! Did niether!

I wonder how many readers realise that R C Sheriff was actually in the trenches in WW!?
