    Erich Maria Remarque is best known for his classic masterpiece All Quiet on the Western Front Arch of Triumph may not be equal to that but it is very good, a beautifully written novel that stands on it s own merit and one that I enjoyed reading from start to finish The setting is 1938 Paris, nervous about the unrest in Europe prior to the start of World War II, and filled with expatriates and refugees of many nationalities Ravic is an accomplished German surgeon, and having fled Nazi Germany, Erich Maria Remarque is best known for his classic masterpiece All Quiet on the Western Front Arch of Triumph may not be equal to that but it is very good, a beautifully written novel that stands on it s own merit and one that I enjoyed reading from start to finish The setting is 1938 Paris, nervous about the unrest in Europe prior to the start of World War II, and filled with expat...

    One of my favorite books Remarque at it s best This book transforms you back in time to post war Paris You can small the dusty streets, cigars and Calvados in the air when you read it It will leave you nostalgic and hungry for true love and romance straight from the vintage 30s.
