    I bought and read this book after going to see the movie in the theatre I enjoyed the movie thoroughly as both a romance and war movie Reading the book brought back all of the emotions I felt while watching the film and so I enjoyed the book a lot I just wish that the book could have been a little different than the film I found that the book was fairly short and was simply the movie put into print I had hoped that it would have elaborated on the film maybe by going in depth into the characters or including scenes that never became part of the film This would have made the book amazing but nevertheless it was still a really great read I think books and films like this one are so important right now especially to young Canadians Canada has no soldiers living who served in the Great War And very soon the world wont have any living memory of this war It make...

    Cardboard characters and a plot line sutied to Louis L Amour However, as this is an adaptation of a screenplay I suppose some leeway must be granted Thus I have given this book two stars when in fact it is perhaps deserving of one star.

    My brother in law, who is in the Canadian Armed Forces, said that his unit watched the Passchendaele movie from which this book was derived, and they all hated it At the time, I dismissed his criticism as a bunch of soldiers wanting to see a war movie and not understanding that the movie may have been trying to achieve something However, years later after reading this book I co cede that my brother in law and his colleagues were etc much on to something This book is a movie tie in novel for which the movie came first As such, I was not expecting a great work of literature, but I was expecting a lot than I received Although ostensibly set around the First World War Battle of Passchendaele, very little of the book takes place at the Front, much less at the eponymous battle The book follows a wounded, shell shocked soldier trying to readjust to life in Calgary as a recruiter He falls in love with his nurse and ultimately goes back to the Front to protect his love s head string younger brother The whole affair comes to a head in the closing chapters at Passchendaele I feel I don t need to post a spoiler warning, as the conclusion of the book is obvious from ...

    Passchendaele is a romanticized story around the extraordinary achievements by soldiers fighting a battle on blood soaked grounds for almost four months, one that would become synonymous with the horrors of the First World War Paul Gross highlights the determination, commitment and triumph of Canadians during this troubled time.The book has a bit of everything interesting characters, some temptation drugs and sex , a passionate love story and in the background WW1 and its graphic battle scenes.Sergeant Michael Dunne, a soldier who is brutally wounded in France returns to a Calgary military hospital where he meets and falls in love with Sarah an attractive nurse When Sarah s brother David signs up to fight in Europe, Michael feels compelled to return to Europe with the hope of keeping David safe.I was somewhat disappointed, I expected Gross would have elaborated about the Canadian involvement in the battle it doesn t kick in till two third into the book Much of the story wa...

    Passchendaele, based off of Paul Gross screenplay is a book written about the movie and not a movie created from the book Although, not having watched the movie myself, one can only assume the book could not be any better than the movie The book racked in an average rating of three stars by Goodreads reviewers, while the movie gained a 3.5 star rating on IMDb ratings respectively This mediocre rating reflected the quality of the writing quite well Similar to the War Horse, the plot of the story was prolonged too much, producing areas of the book where some readers might find boring When Sarah Mann s brother enlists and is sent to the front lines of World War I, Sarah believes Michael Dunne is to blame for her brother s actions Fearing the death of his lover s younger brother, Michael Dunne re enlists in the Canadian Miltary in order to protect his lover s asthmatic son Creative description of the front lines allows readers to be fully emersed in the presence of th...
