9780140236286: The Ghost Road (The regeneration trilogy)

'"The Ghost Road" is a startlingly good novel ...With the other two volumes of the trilogy, it forms one of the richest and most rewarding works of fiction of recent times. Intricately plotted, beautifully written, skilfully assembled, tender, horrifying and funny, it lives on in the imagination, like the war it so imaginatively and so intelligently explores' - "Times Literary Supplement".

From AudioFile:

When Billy Prior returns to France for the fourth time in September of 1918, it's like coming home. He does so against everyone's advice, but when he watches the sun rise slowly after the Battle of Joncourt, he realizes why he couldn't have stayed back. And mysteriously, so do we. Peter Firth's reading captures perfectly Barker's tragic mix of pity and apotheosis. An accomplished British actor, Firth is at once the cynical, but savvy, Prior, the stammering Professor Dodgson (Lewis Carroll), soft-spoken Dr. Rivers, all with transparent ease. His unerring sense of character and tone recreates the bitter irony of that last push in 1918 when so many died so needlessly. For Barker, these last dead, though they sour the trumpet of victory, are war's only winners. At the end Firth's silence becomes eloquent. P.E.F. An AUDIOFILE Earphones Award winner.
