5.0 out of 5 stars casualties of war, 8 Oct. 2007
By 
This review is from: The Regeneration Trilogy: Regeneration, The Eye in the Door, The Ghost Road (Hardcover)
When it comes to literature on war and what it does to man, few novels outdo Pat Barker's Regeneration trilogy. They may take place during WW I, but they have a relevance far beyond the Great War. My personal favorite is 'Regeneration', the first volume of the three, but all of them are world class literature. If I were in favour of the concept (which I'm not), this should be compulsory literature to each and everyone.

Well said, love Pat Barker's trilogy (especially the wonderful Billy Prior who is one of very few characters of working-class origins in the book - ironic since they died in their millions). As for making books compulsory literature, I'm with you - it never works. As a teenager I was forced to read (and act in - oh the terror!) A Midsummer Night's Dream. It was years before I could even contemplate reading a word of any Shakespeare play. Literature - books - are best discovered by accident.
