4.0 out of 5 stars Fact and Fiction merge, but to good effect, 24 Nov 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Regeneration (Paperback)
I will not delude you, I did not pick up this book by choice. I am doing a degree in literature and Regeneration was on my reading list and I have only just recently finished reading it. Now with many English Lit books you will find that they are either exceptionally obscure or wonderfully insightful, thankfully Regeneration was the latter of the two.
The novel certainly is an interesting read although it is somewhat of a difficult read so don't approach it with a light heart as it does demand attention. Once you get past the overly dominating writing style of Pat Barker you are immerged into a blend of war documentation and fiction.
Set in a Psychological rehabilitation centre during the first World War, Regeneration is a frightening and realistic look into what the war was really like and the many lives and minds that it was able to destroy.
I would not recommend this novel to eccentrics that find their reading pleasure in spy and action novels as this is far from it. In fact you will very likely end up a pacifist at the end page.
