All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque

All Quiet on the Western Front - A.W. Wheen, Erich Maria Remarque

I know this book is a classic, but I thought it was just ok.  The parts that focused on the characters doing and experiencing things were really well-written and drew my interest.  However, the philosophical passages that broke up the activity dragged on and became rather repetitive.
