characters ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ✓ James Jones Free download Ò The Thin Red Line è PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Imes  “A rare and splendid accomplishment strong and ambitious spacious and as honest as any novel ever written” Newsweek   “A major novel of combat in World War II reminiscent of Stephen Crane in The Red Badge of Courage ” The Christian Science Monitor   “ The Thin Red Line moves so intensely and inexorably that it almost seems like the war it is describing” The New York Times Book Review. War is hell I first came across James Jones novel with the Terrence Malick film released in 1998 In that year there were two amazing popular war films released the other was Spielberg s Saving Private Ryan I liked them both However the Terrence Malick film was the philosophical and held a deeper meaning than that of Spielberg but both are different films different theaters of war and different messages It has taken me twenty years since then to finally read James Jones novel The book comes in at just over 500 pages long with chapters amounting to sometimes near 100 pages with no break inbetween So sometimes it became a grind but not an unpleasant one because I found that I became attached towards certain characters of which there are so many that it does become confusing to work out and remember casualties being transferred elsewhere and so on There is a roster at the beginning which helps understanding who is who in C for Charlie Company that the book is concerned with Guadalcanal August 1942 The start of the fightback against the Japanese in the South Pacific centering on The Solomon Islands the first invasion of a Japanese held location after their initial success in late 1941 As stated the book focus is centered around a specific Company C for Charlie who are reinforcements for the Marines who assaulted the island earlier on Green troops with no combat experience essentially I will try and compare the book with what I remember of the movie because a lot is different but some sections totally is as written in the novel They are both different and yet deal with the philosophical aspects of warfare basically the futility of it all The main part of the book and film deal with the attempt to take Hill 210 a well dug in emplacement by the Japanese The relationship of the characters is the most prominent aspect rather than any military excercise here leading to conflicts with the company commander Stein and the Battalion commander Colonel Tall Stein being hesitant about sacrificing his company against the assault which eventually after 4 days of combat with no water high attrition rates and so on they eventually take That part of the novel was well detailed in Malicks film However I believe the Terrence Malick film is probably the better medium to use rather than the long winded book but the book has the most merit in essentially describing the relationships between the men the dissension within their ranks the fleshed out character portrayals the caste system within the early American military things like that are and cannot be translated onto film unless you want Oliver Stone to make a 4 hour epic journey Terrence Malick covers the essential nature of the book into an over 2 hour visual portrayal incredibly well War is hell It is an anti war book the loss of life the inter linked characters and their idiosyncrasies their conflicts combat numbness you basically become immune to the shellings the wounded the deaths whilst being on the line after a certain period of time etc are uite realistically portrayed I do not know who wrote the script of the movie but the two most interesting characters are Witt and Fife in the book In the film after the capture of Hill210 then they are exaggerated completely and the ending is totally different than the novel Most people would say in most instances the book is usually better than the film version which I agree with but with the Terrence Malick film of The Thin Red Line I think in this instance because the novel is uite long winded and with artistic license then the film basically does do what the book attempts to portray maybe in a much emotional way Good book 5 stars will read again in another twenty years Letters to Chloe year there were two amazing popular war
