Muller’s straightforward, simple delivery underscores the horror and hopelessness depicted in Remarque’s powerful WWI novel. Germany’s Iron Youth, represented by Paul Baumer and his friends, begin the war as teenagers sure of the justice of their cause and the glory that will be theirs. When these young men are confronted with trench warfare, dying in hellish agony, Paul must face the reality in which he finds himself and prepare for the world to which he will return, irrevocably changed. Reading with a calm, quiet sureness, which heightens the soul-destroying nightmare of Paul’s ordeal, Muller’s stunning performance demonstrates the reason for his huge following. Recommended by many high schools, this is a must for young adults. S.G. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 95]
