All Quiet on the Western Front
« on: March 04, 2011, 12:22:37 PM »

Have you ever read All Quiet on the Western Front? If you have, could you imagine if Leviathan was kind of like that, on the perspective of an actual soldier. If you haven't, you need to read it, it's awesome.

I watched the movie in history class, and I really want to read the book. :P
It would be kind of interesting to read Leviathan from some random soldier's point of view, that's for sure.

I've read the book it is very sad. And imagine, this is WWI Leviathan style from a person who is on the actual front, who is already there.
