From Here to Eternity
Ray Smith's review
Jan 08, 2012
An immensely impressive book. Sure, it's often pretentious (esp. when the characters go all philosophical) and even sometimes dull, but I've never read a novel that so captures an era and its characters (US Army life in Hawaii circa 1941) so well and deeply. The novel is a wonderful time machine.
