Allmänna fakta



Enough people liked this novel to make it a commercial success in its day. Wouk, being a great fan of the earlier Thomas Wolfe, and a very commercial writer himself, cobbled together this tale of a brilliant, but unknown writer, who does acheive commercial success, but driven by his demons, works himself to death. I wasn't really that interested in Youngblood by the time I finished the book.

I'll read anything Herman Wouk writes. This tale of his inspiration and writing career is truly wonderful, but I miss the awe and wonder on first readings of The Caine Mutiny and Marjorie Morningstar

When readers think of war novels, Tolstoy's classic, War And Peace often comes to mind. I believe Herman Wouk's, War And Remembrance, is destined to become an all time classic as well. An amazing novel on so many fronts !

Another book that I first encountered as a movie. Because of that, I was surprised by the first section of the novel about Willie Keith before he joined The Caine. And the book continues on long past the movie too!

Keith's relationship with May Wynn has a lot more depth in the book, though I came close to despising Willie for his superior attitude towards her. In fact, all the characters had more nuances to them except for Steve Maryk.
