Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $425,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>

I loved this book. It was terrifying and gruesome and I probably will never read it again, but it was amazing. It's pretty hard to follow at first and the point of view changes without warning, but you get used to it. Also, it's pretty dang rare to find a comma in this book, but after a while you find it really shows how a person's train of thought goes along (you get used to it, too).

A little classic. Print version of the ballad "Johnny I hardly knew ye``

I read this book in high school and I still recall it vividly to this day. One of the best anti-war books I've ever read. Excellent.

Metallica wrote "One" after watching the movie version of this book; the book is far superior to the movie and I agree that it one of the most moving and disturbing things I've ever read. There is an audio version of this story in the library-to-go which is very well done and absolutely captivating!

This should be mandatory reading for all members of the human race.

Metallica wrote their contraversial song "One" based on this book. The song and the book are awesome! A deep pshycholigical nightmare unfolds in the mind of a young soldier who looses his arms, legs, sight and speech in the war and "awakes" in a hospital where he is almost totally isolated from the world.

One of the most moving and disturbing books I've ever read.
