    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 expatriates and refugees of many nationalities Ravic is an accomplished German surgeon, and having fled Nazi Germany, he is living in Paris without passport or documantation He finds work by performing surgery for two, less than average, French doctors Really his main goal is to avoid capture and deportation, and survive the coming maelstrom of war Amid all this...

    An exiled German doctor living in Paris in 1939.This had all the indicia of a great novel and it was very good, I enjoyed reading it The first half sets up the plot of a German, Ravic, though that is not his real name he is literally a man without a country Germany has exiled him and France will not recognize his medical license because of his political status He earns a living assisting French physicians, though he does the surgeries for them and receives a quarter or a tenth of the pay An exiled German doctor living in Paris in 1939.This had all the indicia of a great novel and it was very good, I enjoyed reading it The first half sets up the plot of a German, Ravic, though that is not his real name he is literally a man without a country Germany has exiled him and France will not recognize his medical license because of his political status He earns a living assisting French physicians, though he does the surgeries for them and receives a quarter or a tenth of the pay treating prostitutes and performing abortions and forced to live in a shady hotel because of his legal status.Set just before World War II, but with the specter of war shadowing everything, this also references his exile into Spain and there are many allusions to Franco s autocratic reign and his affinity with German fascism.Intr...

    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.

    Remarque has a great humanistic way to tell a simple story, while inspiring a greater idea or a state of mind While Arch of Triumph is definitely mainly a love story between German refuge Ravic, and wannabe actress Joan Madou, it is also a dooming testament to the injustices of life And it is also a stark witness to the tragedy of war, and the dark human instincts that precipitate it Being a strong pacifist, Remarque, who served in World War I, tries once again to present not only the Remarque has a great humanistic way to tell a simple story, while inspiring a greater idea or a state of mind While Arch of Triumph is definitely mainly a love story between German refuge Ravic, and wannabe actress Joan Madou, it is also a dooming testament to the injustices of life And it is also a stark witness to the tragedy of war, and the dark human instincts that precipitate it Being a strong pacifist, Remarque, who served in World War I, tries once again to present not only the uselessness of war, but its inevitability too I really liked the characters in this one, which are mainly Ravic and ...

    I put this book aside to read A Lady s Life in the Rocky Mountains but I was already getting tired of it and I m not in the mood to finish it right now The story is about a German refugee living in Paris during WWII but before the Occupation He had been a surgeon in Germany but as he is living illegally without papers, he has to take whatever work a few French doctors give him work that they don t want to do such as trying to save a woman s life after a botched abortion I found this all very I put this book aside to read A Lady s Life in the Rocky Mou...

    It s Paris months before WWII The darkness of nights mask the arrival of refugees from Germany to hotel rooms and abandoned flats by Parisians reading the headlines warning of a second catastrophe in just twenty years The suspense is palpable as Ravic s existence as an undocumented surgeon builds This story like Remarque s All Quite on the Western Front tells the cautionary tale of the costs of war ...
