  Birdsong : A Novel of Love and War (Vintage International)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
The bestselling author of Birdsong and Charlotte Gray delivers an enthralling, vibrantly evocative novel set in America in 1960, when the country stood poised between the paranoia of the Cold War and the ebullience of the New Frontier.
It should not be considered a "novel of love and war"- it should be considered a novel of war with the occassional female character thrown in.
The account of war is harrowing and yet mesmerising, and I found myself simultaneously horrified by the gritty and stark imagery,and moved to tears by the spare and lucid prose.

Dewey confronts each aspect of his past, vaguely aware that he is in a rare introspective moment that will allow him to separate his past from his present, and ultimately, choose his future.

I also do not feel that the novel actually tied all of the characters together well.
I was reading this book for a book club, but probably would not have had any desire to finish it otherwise.

 Birdsong : A Novel of Love and War (Vintage International) - Interactive Reviews
Wrayford convinces her to leave a life of passionless comfort to be at his side, however things do not turn out according to plan.
Wraysford is haunted by this doomed affair and carries it with him into the trenches of World War I. Birdsong derives almost all of its power from its descriptions of mud and blood, and Wraysford's attempt to retain a scrap of humanity while surrounded by it.
The only person I would endorse this to would be a man who is interested in reading war scenes, and then I would tell him to skip the 1st part and the 1978 parts, and just read the war scenes all in 1 sequence.

 Amazon.fr : Chroniques et points de vue Livres en anglais: Birdsong: A Novel of Love and War   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Everything about this novel, which was a bestseller in England, is outsized, from its epic, if occasionally ramshackle, narrative to its gruesome and utterly convincing descriptions of battlefield horrors.
As typical of the "lost generation" of Britain (where this novel was a best-seller), the Wraysford antihero realistically conveys what a waste--in lives and psyches--the trench experience was.
Birdsong was voted one of the best books of the century in a poll conducted by Waterstone's booksellers and Channel Four TV in the United Kingdom.

 Birdsong : A Novel of Love and War (Vintage International)
It is a combination of the WW1, love and a miserable life of a soldier who has nothing more to prove.
If you have never really understood the extent to which WWI was the most badly planned, stupidest, and inhumane conflict in history, "Birdsong" will leave you in no doubt of it.
The account of trench warfare, of soldiers walking in suicidal ranks directly into machine gun fire because the command didn't know any better, is supremely realistic and horrifying but never overstated.

This boy is also just one example of the amazing disregard for human life that occurs obviously not only in the novel but in the war as well.
Obviously, enemies have no regard or respect for each other's lives but as we see in section 2 of "Birdsong", it is not only the opposing sides who have no respect.

"All the best parts of 'Birdsong' are set not so much in the trenches as beneath them--in the network of tunnels with which both the British and the Germans laced the no man's land between their lines.
"'Birdsong' proves to be worthy in every way of its success and honors....The accounts of combat both above and below ground, ringing with credibility and authenticity, are among the finest that I have ever read.
The sensuous, affective surfaces, the details, the fully imagined physicality of life and death are so powerful as to be almost unbearable.
