review The Thin Red Line

The Thin Red Line review Ì 3 Am up to get evacuated before they land in a muddy grave But they will all discover the thin red line that divides the sane from the mad and the living from the dead in this unforgettable portrait that captures for all time the total experience of men at war   Foreword by Francine Prose “Brutal direct and powerful The men are real the words are real death is real imminent and immediate” Los Angeles T. The heroic stand of the of the 93rd Highlanders against the Russian cavalry in the Crimean War in 1854 was referred to as the thin red line At a time when the standard infantry formation was a suare when defending against charging cavalry the Highlanders in their bright red jackets spread out in a thin red line so the enemy could not bypass themThis story starts out in WWII with troops waiting their turn to board landing craft to go ashoreAfter reading 30 some pages of a 500 page book in which not much was happening I decided this was the likes of the old TV show Payton Place than the WWII classic by a guy who was there Guadalcanal Diary and being as life was too short I moved on to something else

The Thin Red Line review Ì 3 Imes  “A rare and splendid accomplishment strong and ambitious spacious and as honest as any novel ever written” Newsweek   “A major novel of combat in World War II reminiscent of Stephen Crane in The Red Badge of Courage ” The Christian Science Monitor   “ The Thin Red Line moves so intensely and inexorably that it almost seems like the war it is describing” The New York Times Book Review. I had the same reaction to this as I did to From Here to Eternity which is to say that the beginning was so irritating that it almost made me put it down but I ended up glad that I didn t I haven t read too many other books that were written around this time but the prose style in this seems lackluster Yeah there are some poetic bits but there are also bits that seem really lazy In the first handful of pages for example Jones uses the words unpleasant and supercilious to describe Doll at least four times each I normally wouldn t advocate using a thesaurus to help you write because if you re having trouble thinking of synonyms you ve probably got bigger problems But Jones definitely could have made use of one From Here To Eternity s full of similar things what I remember most of all was the construction he ed ly over and over again page after page But both books characters grow on you via sheer force of repetition The Thin Red Line is much shorter but it s still over 500 pages and though there are tons of characters almost all of them get enough page space to make a lasting impressionAnd Jones clearly has a good sense of what motivates or demoralizes soldiers and communicates it well In particular I found the interactions between enlisted men and officers pretty fascinating At one point several men of varying ranks go off on a special mission and succeed Afterward there s a lot of backslapping and promises of medals Unfortunately they don t seem to come through which seems to be a pretty forceful statement about the army s regarding men as tools and nothing But then eventually they do get their medals unexpectedly So what does that mean I m not sure about that one exactly I am however sure about this novel s classic status It s worth a read and it seems like it s better than the 1998 Terrence Malick film which is itself supposedly pretty good although I haven t seen it
