Summary à eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ↠ Susan Hill

Barton The lyrical beauty of Hill's narrative draws the reader in and doesn't let go This little novel is a gem compelling and moving a treat for all readers of fiction. This 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

    Once I knew I was going to write Strange Meeting it actually fell into place remarkably easily I suppose there are two ways a writer can tackle such a subject One way is to write a very long panoramic historical novel attempting to capture the whole sweep of the war But there was no way I could have done that or wanted to I have never been interested in that kind of book neither as a writer nor as a readerThe alternative was to write a nov

    A short but beautiful book It doesn't have the scope of All uiet on the Western Front or other war related books like For Whom the Bell Tolls It's very focused on a short space of time and only two real locations The first is England the home of a recuperating John Hilliard recently invalided out of the Trenches and on leave to recover The second is the Trenches themselves and the surrounding French countrysid
