All Quiet On the Western Front is probably my favorite novel. I have read it many, many times.

I read initially for class, we had a choice of foreign novels to choose from and write a report on. I read it twice before even starting my analysis on it. I've probably read it about 7-8 times. I'm going to read The Alchemist starting tonight then re-read it again :

I love it for many reasons, but probably mostly because of its realism. The author fought in WWI, he knew what it was like to kill a man, to watch your best friend die from an infected wound, to have your humanity and identity ripped away while fighting a hopeless war. The soldiers in the story are no older than 21, and yet they are dying for ideals and politics they do not understand.

I also love history, so a story about WWI really spoke to me personally. They say the soldiers of WWI are the lost generation, they came back from years of war only to find their countries in depressions and unable to give them the care they need. With so much focus on WWII and its heroes, WWI is sadly often overlooked.

So simply written but yet it hits so deep. It's just a tragically beautiful novel.

Finnegans Wake is the greatest novel of all-time, followed closely by The Little Prince

One thing I've learned today is that Randy is not a complete F'ing idiot.
He earned my respect today...

He joins a small list:

Rasheed
xxNeXuSxx
Hawker
-primetime-.... even though he is full of $hit... He still looked into it.
GOBB
L. Kizzle
and I'm forgetting a few others.
