Birdsong Review ✓ 2 Published to international critical and popular acclaim this intensely romantic yet stunningly realistic novel spans three generations and the unimaginable gulf between the First World War and the present As the youn. Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks is a moving passionate shocking thought provoking and heartbreaking novel A novel that manages to create a passionate and erotic love story combined with the horrors of war Set before and during the Great War Birdsong tells the story of Stephen starting in pre war France and taking us right through the war and through a terrible period of history Faulks delivers a moving and shocking account of Stephen and his love affair and the trials and hardships of trench life and it seems as though at times you are seeing this all through the characters eyes This is a powerful novel and certainly not for the faint hearted I read this for my local book club and I can imagine when we meet in February this book is going to make for great discussionThe battlefield scenes are so descriptive and cleverly written and at times make harrowing reading but the author makes sure you are in that trench and you are witnessing the vivid descriptions of carnage and brutalities of War I loved the characters and they are so well developed that I found they not only had faces but voices and I had such a connection with each and every one of them I learned so much from this book and I really enjoyed the story of the tunnellers the descriptions of how both sides dug tunnels underground and lay mines under enemy lines was something that I had not been aware of and did some research on sinceThis is a book that will stay with me for a long time as it has all the elements of a 5 star read for me Its got the passion the history and a great plot It has the ability to make the reader exclaim out loud and to remember a time when precious lives were lost in the name of warI could go on and on but you just have to read it for yourself

I have uite mixed feelings about this book While I found the sections on the war proper uite devastating and very well done I also found the framing device of the pre war romance and present day life far less effective and also less well written My feelings may also be affected to some extent by other World War I literature that I have been reading as part of the Centennial over the past few monthsI found that the frame story actually a dual frame diminished the war story tremendously In fact I wondered prior to the war story beginning whether I would want to complete reading the bookI ve read so many excellent books with the WWI group that did not bother with that kind of tacked on romance etc It s simply not necessary And Faulk certainly demonstrated the skill to write a full book without it This made me wonder whether he may not have trusted his audience to come to the book But then I see how many others give this book top ratings and realize that I am out of sync with the majority on this book But I have no problem with that I was simply uite surprised when I read the it as my expectations were much different

Birdsong Review ✓ 2 On that is as tragic as A Farewell to Arms and as sensuous as The English Patient Crafted from the ruins of war and the indestructibility of love Birdsong is a novel that will be read and marveled at for years to com. Not until almost the end when my 5 star became a certainty and not until shortly before that when my first tear came Yes it was intense as any book about a major war out to be the intensity in this book did not manifest itself only through the gruesomeness the wreckage and the atrocity associated with the war but the emotional struggles beneath the surface of ordinary human beings being pulled out of the reality of their otherwise ordinary though not necessarily perfect livesIt was Stephen s story through and through even with the extension to his granddaughter Elizabeth 60 years ago Stephen made an entrance to the story as a compulsive and reckless young man barely out of boyhood The war reshaped him and at the end we discovered along with Stephen himself the will to live and the compassion to others that he never had thought he possessed Escaped from extermination Stephen feared nothing any In the existence he had rejoined so strange and so removed from what seemed natural there was only violent death or life to choose between finer distinctions such as love preference or kindness were redundant At a certain point I was just as fed up with the war as the soldiers in the story Elizabeth s episodes were cleverly inserted by the author to provide me for the breaks like Stephen had during the war There were uite a number of memorable characters Isabelle Jeanne Colonel Gray JACK FIREBRACE Captain Weir Elizabeth s boyfriend Robert like Stephen they are all conflicted characters in one way or another yet felt so realistic and believableElizabeth s love story echoed her grandmother s but with its own spirals History Does Not Repeat Itself But It RhymesThis was my first book by the author and my first novel with detailed coverage on WWI I know there are two other books in the trilogy After being so marveled by this one not sure if I should pick them up
