    Kindle Strange Meeting PDF î Á akvarieprofilen.co strange kindle, meeting download, Strange Meeting PDF/EPUBI had not read Susan Hill before but when I've seen her titles I thought she veered toward ghost stories As I chose to read this because it continues my exploration of WWI I wasn't sure what to expect from her It was nothing of what might have been and is a fine contribution to the sub genre'By the next war the message will have got through’ ‘There will never be another war’ ‘There will always be wars’ ‘Men couldn’t be so stupid John After all this? Isn’t the only real purpose of our being here to teach them that lesson – how bloody useless and pointless the whole thing is?’ ‘Men are naturally stupid and they do not learn from experience’This is but one of the conversations between the two main characters John Hilliard and David Barton One of the things I hearread from men who have participated in war andor any military experience is that they are able to form close relationships despite or because of? the stresses inflicted

    Kindle Strange Meeting PDF î Á akvarieprofilen.co strange kindle, meeting download, Strange Meeting PDF/EPUBSet in the First World War Beautifully written it almost reads like a poem if not exactly Wilfred Owen's poem of the same title Trench horror contrasts with the unreality of life in Blighty experienced by one of the characters in the novel home on leave; so unreal he can't wait to get back to FranceThe' strange meeting' is that between two officers John and David David and Jonathan? and the resulting bond between them One of them writes as a poet might – Owen??It brought the war its horrors and ironies home to me in an unforgettable way

    Kindle Strange Meeting PDF î Á akvarieprofilen.co strange kindle, meeting download, Strange Meeting PDF/EPUBDespite the inevitability of their being sad and depressing I will persist in reading novels about the First World War Maybe I’d stop if there wasn’t so much well written fiction about the war and indeed wars in general In this case 'Strange Meeting' is an account of the relationship between two officers over a relatively short period in training camps and trenches Said relationship is ambiguously homoerotic but I read it as an intense romantic friendship It was very moving to see the two young men find comfort in each other’s company in appalling conditions Their conversations about how to bear the pointless and cruel loss of life all around them were very powerful Perhaps the most notable aspect of their relationship is that they are totally honest with ea

    Kindle Strange Meeting PDF î Á akvarieprofilen.co strange kindle, meeting download, Strange Meeting PDF/EPUBThis sad and haunting tale of the deep friendship which evolves between two officers serving in the trenches during WW1 is so well written and has such sensitivity that it couldn't fail to be movingOf the two men one is already emotionally scarred by his experiences but the other is as yet untouched by this dreadful war and has yet to discover what it meant to serve on the front lineI've read many books about this conflict but I felt this was a personal look at how men tried to deal with the unspeakable horrors they had to confront and yet stay sane
