Последната книга, която Ремарк пише. Темата – позната до болка и негова любима. Война, живот извън рационалното, копнеж по обикновеното и моментната среща на двама души в средата на разрухата.

Факт е, че стилът на Ремарк не се отличава с лекота. Думите лежат сковано, дървено върху листа, обаче под грубата рамка има ужасно много нежност, която да се вземе. И нежност, и рани, и болка, и оптимизъм. Краят е предвидим, но и друг не би бил възможен.

Простичките описания на нещо толкова неразбираемо за

Why is this not as popular as All Quiet on the Western Front? Like All Quiet, it's about a young German soldier in WWII, but this one has a great love story and was three times more pleasurable for me. *note* Don't read this if you're a recovering alcoholic because on every page, someone is drinking something.

update: Oops, I mean WWI.

للحب وقت وللموت وقت – إريش ماريا ريمارك


هي سابع رواية لريمارك وقد صدرت عام 1954 وهي ثاني رواية أقرأها له بعد "كل شيء هاديء في الجبهة الغربية" ولم تخرج هذه عن موضوع تلك: "الحرب وأهوالها" لكنها اختلفت في الظروف والأحداث رغم أنها تحمل رسالة مشابهة.


تتحدث هذه الرواية عن الجندي جريبر وهو جندي ألماني يحارب على الجبهة الشرقية في روسيا في الحرب العالمية الثانية ويبدو أن الزمن هو ما بين 1943-1944 حيث بدأت تتوالى الهزائم الألمانية على جميع الجبهات.

Dove inizia la colpa? E fino a che punto arriva la complicità?
Leggere il romanzo nella prima edizione del 1954 (usata bene, solo un po’ ingiallita dal tempo) mi ha fatto assaporare un gusto più profondo; mi ha permesso di sentirmi dentro nella storia già alle prime pagine.
Ambientato in un arco di tempo di poche settimane, durante la seconda guerra mondiale, ha come sfondi successivi il fronte russo e la città tedesca dove Graeber torna per una breve licenza, dopo due anni di prima linea. In rea

This book was quite amazing. It is from the viewpoint of a Nazi soldier who gets to go home from war. He finds out that things home are terrible, everything is turned upside down. He falls in love and among the chaos there are moments of peace and beauty. There is amazing social commentary on concepts such as collective guilt, our responsibility to standing up to evil and war. The ending of the book is quite haunting and i cant wait to read more of his books

კიდევ ერთხელ დაგანახებს ადამიანს, რომ ადამიანი ნებისმიერ იდეოლოგიაზე უფრო მეტია.
მეორე მსოფლიო ომის ნანგრევებში სიკვდილთან ერთად გრძნობ სიცოცხლეს, სიყვარულს და გაზაფხულს.
მომწონს, რომ რეალიზმი არანაირ შანსს არ უტოვებს "ჰეფფი ენდს".

Ремарк е всичко, което един стойностен писател предполага да бъде - литературен гений, който си служи прекрасно с думите и отличен познавач на човешката психика, който описва мислите и случващото се в душата по един невероятен начин. С две думи, сякаш аз самата бях Ернст Гребер.
Неговите мисли са и мои мисли. В един момент неусетно оставяш книгата и се отвличаш в собствените си разсъждения за собствените си разбирания и собствения си реален живот.

Нещата, за които става дума в книгата, са всевечн

Для меня это лучшее произведение Ремарка, здесь есть все, за что все так любят и читают Эриха Марию: гнетущие обстоятельства и обреченные влюбленные, которые пытаются противостоять всему этому ужасу, несправедливо и незаслуженно свалившемуся на них, также хватает философских размышлений.

Втора книга на Ремарк, второ добро попадение. Явно любимата му тема е войната. Тук е от гледната точка на немски войник. Явно войната не е пречка да разцъфне една красива любов. Да - налице са противоположности - война - любов, добро - зло, глад и мизерия - разточително и ненужно богатство. Войната работи в два плана - бомбардировките в градовете и на бойното поле. Нашия човек Гребер има възможността да участва и в двата пълноценно и по човешки. При хора като него е налице сякаш пробуждане, няка ...more

I have always been a fan of Erich Maria Remarque's novel "All Quiet on the Western Front", which I consider to be one of the best war novels ever written. So, when I saw "A Time to Love and a Time to Die" at a used book store, I was excited to read it. I had hoped that "A Time" would live up to the high standards of "All Quiet". I was not disappointed.

"A Time" is arguably an even better novel than "All Quiet". Set in World War II, it is the story of Ernst Grueber, a soldier in the German Army on

Brilliant on so many levels. We were studying the Stanford Prison Experiment in psychology, which led me to read Ordinary Men, which led me to read this. And I honestly think this is the better of the three for explaining why good people do bad things.

A soldier tries on the role of a civilian, tries to balance following orders with making his own life, and struggles with disillusionment and love. He's still a Nazi, still a German soldier, but he doesn't feel the weight of those title yet. He's j

Upon rereading a couple of chapters I realized I was a bit harsh in my initial assessment. I still think this is not the best introduction to Remarque. But if you've read a some of his novels and like them, you'll eventually get to this one.

The story focuses on a German soldier who goes home for a two week vacation from the Russian front in late 1944. I never really found much, if any, sympathy for the two main characters of the book.

After reading a biography of Remarque, I was made more aware

Otherwise known as 'All Quiet on the Eastern Front'...
after Remarque's notable work 'All Quiet on the Western Front'
it's been observed he was a one trick pony and this book
does nothing to defer that accusation.

This is a sentimental version with our hero Ernst, a
German soldier on the Eastern Front who undergoes all the
ups and downs of soldiers everywhere. Remarque was
nestled in Hollywood when he wrote this one during the
war, so I'm sure he had movies on the brain.

I did like this tale particula

Această carte m-a absorbit complet, încă de pe raftul librăriei. Este o baladă, inevitabil tristă, dar fără melodramă. Scrisul este năucitor : ritm alert, lirism, ironie, chiar şi umor. Titlul nu lasă dubii, ceea ce accentuează perspectiva filozofică, judecata morală şi concluzia clasică asupra rolului existenţei umane: de a iubi, de a trăi cu toate simţurile. Contastele sunt izbitoare: dragoste şi bombardamente, ruine şi copaci înfloriţi, explozii şi mierle cântătoare, petreceri cu bucate alese ...more

Beautifully written with a mix of plain, straight forward prose and passages of lyricism and philosophical contemplation of what war does to combatants in the field, civilians, and loved ones at home far from the front. This is a devastating story, its title tells you what to expect; therefore, there's an air of inevitability with the only question being how not if it will happen (though I wanted very much to be wrong).

I am not a huge fan of romance stories yet the love story part of the novel

Given to me as a gift from my daughter. It is heavy reading (war, of course) from the get-go. I read the first few pages right before bed and immediately thought that it was NOT bed-time reading
material. However, once over the initial graphic subject matter, I settled in. At heart, it truly was a desperate story of trying to live a normal life when life was anything but normal. Would I recommend it? Yes, but I've always lived a more thoughtful life and enjoyed a good drama over comedy.

The book of WWII is about the man from another side - he is not a hero, he is not a bad man. He just wanted to be alive and you become to sympathize with him

It was ammazing. I cannot say that I was enjoying because the book started with the scene of describing dead soldiers: and it was about war.
Read and think about life. After this book it's impossible to not think about life and what you have now. Now I understand and worth more each second of my life and what do I have right now.

Превъзходна!!! Болезнено реалистична, покъртителна на моменти и много истинска. Тази книга ме накара да изпитам неистово желание да прочета всичко, написано от Ремарк. Изключителен стил на писане, интересна фабула и трогателни в своята обреченост съдби. Истински шедьовър!

It has been a long time since I have read such an emotional book. Starting off was difficult and required two attempts before my interest was truly and totally absorbed by this author. His use of words and description of places and events just draw you deeply into the personalities and the times of WW2, from the German aspect which is quite revealing as we only normally hear about these events from the Canadian/American side. In the final human analysis, not the political, we find that we are al ...more

My first aquaintance with the works of Remarque. What can I say... This novel is perfect!

Remarque doesn't take sides. He tells you a story. He tells it simply and honestly. Not important in what country you was born and what side you took - war is the same everywhere, it's always awfull and meaningless.

The style of narration captivated me, it is so easy and clear! And the dialogs are brilliant! It is such a plesure to read them!

Remarque shows us, that there is no bad nations - only bad people.

"There's no such thing as a "bad book" when it comes from Remarque" - is my constant recommendation, when someone asks me is it worth start reading it.
This book is a conglomerate of his earlier warfare novels (All quiet on the western front) and his later, much sentimental and bohemian writings (Heaven has no favorites, L`arch de triomphe). As an antiwar hero, he depicts the war which we always tend to forget, putting the realities and the reason in every human being, fighting on the both sides

I remember the thing I loved most about this book was discussing it with Dad.

“He’s afraid," Graber said.

"Yes, naturally. But he’s a good dog."

"And a man-eater."

"We’re all that."

"Why?"

"We are. And we think, just like that dog, that we are still good. And just like him we are looking for a bit of warmth and light and friendship.”
