Regeneration

Regeneration - Pat Barker This World War I story focuses on a group of shell shocked British soldiers who are all patients at a psychiatric hospital in Scotland. It is an interesting way to portray the horrors of war. The reader gets snippets of some devastating scenes through the dialog between soldier and psychiatrist. Although the writing style is a bit stiff and detached, the impact is still strong. I would include this as another good anti-war book along with The Things They Carried and Catch-22.
