    Paperback Ñ Strange Meeting eBook × strange kindle, meeting mobile, Strange Meeting PDFEPUBI don't think this is a very well known or celebrated book but with the exception of Barker's Regeneration Trilogy I can't think of another World War I story that has moved me as deeply While in many ways a subtle novel missing a lot of the overblown overwrought movie moments found in other war novels it seamlessly captures the agony and ugliness of a war that devoured a whole

    Paperback Ñ Strange Meeting eBook × strange kindle, meeting mobile, Strange Meeting PDFEPUBI 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

    Paperback Ñ Strange Meeting eBook × strange kindle, meeting mobile, Strange Meeting PDFEPUBSet 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

    Paperback Ñ Strange Meeting eBook × strange kindle, meeting mobile, Strange Meeting PDFEPUBDespite 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 com

    Paperback Ñ Strange Meeting eBook × strange kindle, meeting mobile, Strange Meeting PDFEPUBThis 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

    Paperback Ñ Strange Meeting eBook × strange kindle, meeting mobile, Strange Meeting PDFEPUBOnce 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 novel of the war in microcosm to create a small world within the great one of the whole war So the book is really about two young men and their meeting their relationship set in a few places over a few short months in one particular small corner of the Great War So says Susan Hill in the afterword to this novel and it encapsulates the story in a nutshell Because this is essentially the tale of two young men one serious and reserved the other jolly and outgoing and their unlikely friendship A friendship made

    Paperback Ñ Strange Meeting eBook × strange kindle, meeting mobile, Strange Meeting PDFEPUBA short but beautiful book It doesn't have the scope of All Quiet 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 countryside These two microcosms are emblems of the two opposing worlds where nothing can overlap On one side is England stalwart Edwardian stiff uncomprehending that is not to s
