thank you for your like, darling, great job 😉
I assume this can be one of best books I have ever read, all life, and those charachters are still “walking” with me everyday …. when you feel empathy for those boys, they stay with you, and you keep living your life for them, too. any piece of bread, and warm shower feels different. and takes a new, deeper sense. take care xx

All Quiet on the West Front is the first recomendation I got and those characters are unforgetable.
