Customer Review

on 20 January 2007
Svejk's journey from dog breeder to orderly in a Czech regiment sent to fight on the Galician front against the Russians in WW1 gives us a fascinating and humanising glimpse into a world usually only accessed via grainy black and white snaps. The wicked humour Hasek employs transcends the 90 year time gap and lays bare the moral bankruptcy of the Austro-Hungarian empire. The author's many delirious ravings, while lengthening the book enormously, are often unspeakably funny and inspired!
