Description

This was no ordinary war. This was a war to make the world safe for democracy. And if democracy was made safe, then nothing else mattered - not the millions of dead bodies, nor the thousands of ruined lives…. This is no ordinary novel. This is a novel that never takes the easy way out: it is shocking, violent, terrifying, horrible, uncompromising, brutal, remorseless, and gruesome...but so is war.

Johnny Got His Gun holds a place as one of the classic antiwar novels. First published in 1939, Dalton Trumbo’s story of a young American soldier terribly maimed in World War I - he “survives” armless, legless, and faceless, but with his mind intact - was an immediate bestseller. This fiercely moving novel was a rallying point for many Americans who came of age during World War II, and it became perhaps the most popular novel of protest during the Vietnam era.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Trumbo's classic of enduring horrors immortalizes the brutality of war in a way no other antiwar writing ever has. The main character is a soldier who is forced into isolation by injuries that prevent him from communicating. When he eventually learns to communicate again, no one wants to listen to what he has to say. Using a forced tone of nostalgia and a hollow "epicness," narrator William Dufris turns this classic into a gimmick. The rolling pitch and yawl of his inflection force the listener into elated highs and sappy lows, making this listen quite tedious. The poignancy, respect, and craft of the novel seem to have been ignored. M.U. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine

        May 26, 2008
        This audio edition of Trumbo's classic 1939 novel of war's insanity begins as a bit of a slog because of the lengthy padding at its start. With two introductions, from Cindy Sheehan and Ron Kovic, that attempt to place the novel in the context of more recent armed conflicts in both Iraq and Vietnam, it is the better part of a disc before the book properly begins. Once it does, though, the slog ceases. Trumbo's novel is spine-tingling in its immediacy and horror, and William Dufris (while occasionally fumbling around in his bag of voices) mostly gives the words room to breathe. For this book, little more is necessary. A Citadel paperback.
