    1. – Jūs šypsotės, – tarė jis, – Ir esat toks ramus. Kodėl nerėkiate?– Aš rėkiu, – atsakė Greberis. – Tik jūs negirdite.

    2. Teleportive WWII novel, top-notch dramatization of the complexity of humanity, formal and thematic excellence throughout. It's about a German soldier who leaves the Russian front during WWII as the tide is turning for the Nazis and goes on furlough to his home city for a few weeks. He can't find his parents in the bombed-out ruins and runs into an old classmate, a comely young woman, and falls in love as, every few days, air raid sirens sound and buildings rise into the air as all hell breaks lo [...]

    3. للحب وقت وللموت وقت – إريش ماريا ريماركهي سابع رواية لريمارك وقد صدرت عام 1954 وهي ثاني رواية أقرأها له بعد "كل شيء هاديء في الجبهة الغربية" ولم تخرج هذه عن موضوع تلك: "الحرب وأهوالها" لكنها اختلفت في الظروف والأحداث رغم أنها تحمل رسالة مشابهة.تتحدث هذه الرواية عن الجندي جريبر و [...]

    4. Why is this not as popular as All Quiet on the Western Front? Like All Quiet, it's about a young German soldier in WWII, but this one has a great love story and was three times more pleasurable for me. *note* Don't read this if you're a recovering alcoholic because on every page, someone is drinking something.update: Oops, I mean WWI.

    5. Последната книга, която Ремарк пише. Темата – позната до болка и негова любима. Война, живот извън рационалното, копнеж по обикновеното и моментната среща на двама души в средата на разрухата. Факт е, че стилът на Ремарк не се отличава с лекота. Думите лежат сковано, дървено [...]

    6. This book was quite amazing. It is from the viewpoint of a Nazi soldier who gets to go home from war. He finds out that things home are terrible, everything is turned upside down. He falls in love and among the chaos there are moments of peace and beauty. There is amazing social commentary on concepts such as collective guilt, our responsibility to standing up to evil and war. The ending of the book is quite haunting and i cant wait to read more of his books

    7. Foarte bine scris! Pentru asta cinci stele! Subiectul -e drept!- nu e tocmai genul meu, desi in fata judecatii istorice are un cuvant de spus

    8. mirštantis miestas Remarko knygas stengiuosi šiek tiek pataupyti, seniau skaitytas po truputį skaitau antrą kartą, bet vis tiek jau sąrašą įpusėjau ir liūdžiu, nes kiekviena Remarko knyga – atskiras šedevras, kaskart kuo nors nustebinantis, ir kartu gerai žinoma, niekada nenuvilianti konstanta.„Laikas gyventi ir laikas mirti“ – septinta mano skaitoma Remarko knyga ir pirma kurią skaitau apie antro pasaulinio karo kareivio potyrius fronte. Keista buvo pradžioje rasti karei [...]

    9. Dove inizia la colpa? E fino a che punto arriva la complicità?Leggere il romanzo nella prima edizione del 1954 (usata bene, solo un po’ ingiallita dal tempo) mi ha fatto assaporare un gusto più profondo; mi ha permesso di sentirmi dentro nella storia già alle prime pagine.Ambientato in un arco di tempo di poche settimane, durante la seconda guerra mondiale, ha come sfondi successivi il fronte russo e la città tedesca dove Graeber torna per una breve licenza, dopo due anni di prima linea. I [...]

    10. A Time to Love and a Time to Die is a marvelous book which, despite being very dark and hard to read at times, turned out to be my sweet escape from the real world. It issues World War II, but it can really refer to any everyday routine which seems to suck the life out of us. Because despite there being a very clear story and storyline, this book is above everything else a search for peace, for love, for hope. What I was left with in the end was not the image of the cold muddy Russian fields – [...]

    11. Kendinizi savaşın içinde ölümü de yanıbaşınızda hissettiren kitap.Nazi Almanyası'nı yererken günümüzdeki gidişatın da benzer olduğunu görmek ürkütücü.Puanım: 7/10

    12. cuốn sách đặc biệt :Dvì vừa đọc rất chậm, chậm từng câu từng chữ từng dấu chấm dấu phẩy, vừa đọc rất nhanh, rất nhanh với nỗi hăm hở đọc cho đến hết nên nó đã đặc biệt lại còn đặc biệt hơn thật nhiều :Dbạn hoa xuân nói bạn thích những cây hồng trong vườn hậu lang của Phía Tây, còn khoảnh khắc đẹp đẽ đầu tiên của Remarque mà mình được gặp, là hương hoa tím Graeber c [...]

    13. Для меня это лучшее произведение Ремарка, здесь есть все, за что все так любят и читают Эриха Марию: гнетущие обстоятельства и обреченные влюбленные, которые пытаются противостоять всему этому ужасу, несправедливо и незаслуженно свалившемуся на них, также хватает философ [...]

    14. I have always been a fan of Erich Maria Remarque's novel "All Quiet on the Western Front", which I consider to be one of the best war novels ever written. So, when I saw "A Time to Love and a Time to Die" at a used book store, I was excited to read it. I had hoped that "A Time" would live up to the high standards of "All Quiet". I was not disappointed."A Time" is arguably an even better novel than "All Quiet". Set in World War II, it is the story of Ernst Grueber, a soldier in the German Army on [...]

    16. კიდევ ერთხელ დაგანახებს ადამიანს, რომ ადამიანი ნებისმიერ იდეოლოგიაზე უფრო მეტია.მეორე მსოფლიო ომის ნანგრევებში სიკვდილთან ერთად გრძნობ სიცოცხლეს, სიყვარულს და გაზაფხულს.მომწონს, რომ რე [...]

    17. Една любовна история, която може би нямаше да се случи, ако не беше войната Войната, пресъздадена с натуралистични описания, сякаш излезли изпод перото на автор на ужаси, но нали съм казвал и друг път - Животът е най-бруталният хорър разказвач А войната е нещо ужасно

    18. Ремарк е всичко, което един стойностен писател предполага да бъде - литературен гений, който си служи прекрасно с думите и отличен познавач на човешката психика, който описва мислите и случващото се в душата по един невероятен начин. С две думи, сякаш аз самата бях Ернст Гре [...]

    19. Толкова ми е тъжно, та чак ми се струва, че ще умра, когато утре се разделя с теб. Но запитам ли се какво би трябвало да се случи, за да не ми е тъжно, имам само един отговор: да не те бях срещнал. Тогава нямаше да ми е тъжно, а щях да замина празен и равнодушен. А като се замисля за [...]

    20. Dopo "Niente di nuovo sul fronte occidentale" Erich Maria Remarque torna a parlarci della guerra con una lucidità, una profondità e un lirismo che rendono la sua scrittura una perla. Questa volta siamo in Russia, durante la seconda guerra mondiale: Graeber, il giovane protagonista, riceve finalmente il diritto di poter andare in licenza e torna nella sua Germania, dove trova la sua città devastata, la casa dei genitori distrutta e nient'altro che macerie, bombardamenti e desolazione. In quest [...]

    21. This is my second favorite Remarque book, after Arch of Triumph. Remarque's ability to portray war is uncomparable, the way he combines the beautiful with the primitive, loss and desperation with hopeless happiness and hatred with comradeship is heart wrentching. The beginning of the plot was a bit too harsh for my taste, but midway through the book I was hooked, lost alongside naïve, yet unexpectedly wise Graeber. Even though the end took me by surprise, I cannot deny liking the irony there.

    22. Втора книга на Ремарк, второ добро попадение. Явно любимата му тема е войната. Тук е от гледната точка на немски войник. Явно войната не е пречка да разцъфне една красива любов. Да - налице са противоположности - война - любов, добро - зло, глад и мизерия - разточително и ненужно [...]

    23. Războiul oferă mici momente de umanitate și omenie, dar, în final, totul se prăbușește sub povara destinului. "Soroc de viață și soroc de moarte" este o poveste de dragoste profund emoționantă, fără însă a cădea în sentimentalism, dar este și o meditație asupra vinei colective și a responsabilității pe care o purtăm în stabilirea limitelor dintre bine și rău. O carte minunată, nu doar prin scriitura desăvârșită, ci și prin intensitatea momentelor redate. (fragmen [...]

    24. Klasika. Jsem ráda, že jsem si tento kousek nechala až do dospělosti. Vyjadřovací a popisné kvality jsou nedozírné. Dílo má hloubku ve všech směrech. I přes tohle všeobecně známé ale musím říct, že mi knížka nesedla. Nebe nezná vyvolených jsem si užívala, Čas žít, čas umírat jsem přečetla tak nějak racionálněji.

    25. درواقع چهارونيم ستارهميخواستم نخونم كتاباييو كه فضاشون فضاى جنگو تلخيو اين جورچيزاس، اين يكى اما با همه تلخيش، با اون پايان لعنتيش-كه بهترين پايان بندى ممكن بود- بدجورى چسبيد.توصيه ميكنم بخونيدش

    26. Cum scrie Remarque despre razboi nu scrie nici un alt scriitor. Intr-atat de mult te atinge tragedia ca iti tremura buza de jos citind orice de Remarque. Si despre dragoste si viata si bucuria de a fi de fiecare data ma indragostesc tot mai multe de acest scriitor!

    28. Sad to say, I don't think I've read "All Quiet on the Western Front" yet. I will have to. I believe this was the first novel I have read about the German side of WWII. It starts on the Russian front as the Germans are in retreat, returns to Germany with the protagonist Graeber on furlough, and then returns to Russia to continue the war.Among its striking features is that it does not glamorize war at all. In fact, the nurse in Slaughterhouse Five might have approved it as much or more than Vonneg [...]
