2 Book Set By Pat Barker; the Eye in the Door; the Ghost Road.
  • The Ghost Road is the final volume in the trilogy on World War I by eminent Yorkshire novelist Pat Barker. The other two volumes in the superb series are "Regeneration" and "The Eye in the Door."
    Ghosts inhabit the 275 pages of this searingly heartbreaking book. Ghosts of soldiers killed in rat and water infested French trenches. Ghosts abounding in Melanesia tribal grounds visited long ago by Dr. William Rivers. Rivers is a doctor working with the shattered souls and bodies of those wounded in Western Front fighting. Barker is not shy of giving details of horrific wounds;her language is raw and sexual scenes are explicit.
    Barker draws an analogy between the savage practices of South Pacific islanders with the so-called civilized nations engaging in battlefield butchery. As she takes us to the South Seas in the memories of Dr. Rivers we are plunged into the black abyss of man's inhumanity to man. The same savagery is seen in the horrors of French trench warfare. It as if Joseph Conrad had risen from the grave to witness the horror of modern warfare as presaged by his Kurtz in his classic novella.
    The novel mixes historical characters like Rivers, Poet soldier Wilfred Owen and other military men. Fictional characters such as the brave bisexual Billy Prior who leads his men with courage are also examined with a keen psychological penetration. The details and the deaths chronicled in these taut pages will haunt the reader for a long time.
    The long trail winds through the jungle of the world as we continue to kill and maim one another in 21st warfare and terror. Pat Barker's fictional trilogy should be required reading in any college level course dealing with World War I or modern European history. The books deserve to be widely read and discussed.

  • A difficult read that doesn't sugar coat war. This is a book that does not spoon feed you the story nice and tidy in perfect order. It is shaky, scattered, difficult... which suits the subject matter. With that said, it is definitely worth your time to read. Many in our book club did not enjoy reading it (this is not a joyful book), but we spent the majority of our meeting actually discussing the book! We all came away glad that we had read it and with a deeper understanding of World War 1 and all wars.

  • The Ghost Road is an interesting book that intersperses the sacred (Melanesian death rites) with the profane (graphic depictions of risky sexual behavior) in an attempt to reconcile man's actions with the inevitability of death. The story itself is a split narrative: the psychoanalyst William Rivers treats men returning from the front during World War I and officer Billy Prior details his military and sexual actions leading up to his final battle in France. Rivers' narrative is further split between his real-time attendance to the War's casualties and his Melanesian experiences ten years' prior (related as an involuntary dream, similar to the symptoms he treats in others).
    Each narrative uses differing perceptions of death as its central theme. Although initially treated as foreign and backwards, the primitive Islanders' perceptions finally appear the more civilized of the two and their culture of acceptance stands in stark relief to the voluntary cheapening of Prior's life while he waits for what he feels is a useless but inevitable death on the Western Front. As such, the final passages in the book are far more uplifting than other WWI narratives such as All Quiet on the Western Front or Paths of Glory.

  • Excellent novel that movingly explores the horror of WW 1 on the young intellectuals who fought in it. Compelling makes the case that England was not to different from the headhunting tribes it decimated. Poses the question: What is civilization? Without out being didactic. Beautifully written. One of the best novels I've read on this topic.

  • The trilogy is the best depiction of the impact of trench warfare on the British office/poofter class I've read. The series strength lies in the use of detailed, insightful psychological analysis conducted by the real life Dr. W. H. R. Rivers and the inter-relation between the various patents and Rivers' own mental states. This, the final book wraps up the story and the consequences of the choices made by individual characters. The book also goes into Rivers' earlier work amongst the headhunters of Melanesia as that society was being traumatized by western influences juxtaposed with the end of World War I.

  • Not for the faint of heart but good fodder for the unconsciously hungry. Worth the displacement felt for the growth gained
