    " I put my Kindle to good use for a change (not that I don't enjoy my addiction to Monopoly and Scrabble!) and ordered a free download of this chaming novella. It's about a WWI soldier who returns home to his wealthy estate a changed man. Chris's amnesia has wiped out all memories of the past 15 years and of his marriage. Instead, Chris remembers his happiest time and the love of his life, Margaret. The story's theme of British class snobbery reminded me of E. M. Forster's Howards End. I found The Return of the Soldier the perfect way to idle away an hour or two on a crisp, fall day. "

    " Written in 1918 by a 24 year old, this is an excellent book by an excellent writer and feminist. I will read others of West's novels. "

    " Story which gives the view point of a WWI soldier returning home from the war, shell shocked and suffering from amnesia. "

    " An interesting perspective on The Great War. It makes one wonder if it is about the war, the soldier, the family, or simply a narrative on relationships. A sad story with an ending that leaves you undecided about the characters. Don't be quick to judge the women in this story because they are extremely real. I feel that the main character is a lonely woman who has immense struggles. "

    " this was a dumb book. "

    " So rich and wonderful I kinda want to turn right around and read it again. "

    " What a beautiful novel. Elegant and economically written with a powerful ending. I'm looking forward to reading more West and as always, this period of English history fascinates me. "

    " A short novel, leaves a lot to assumptions, would leave u thinking on wat cud hav happened.. Nice one to discuss n argue abt. Read it as part of group-reads on the Indian Readers group. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bette | 8/31/2013

    " For a story that's only about eighty pages long, this book really packs an emotional punch. Usually I know how I want a story to end, but with this one, I felt torn. Either way, lives would be ruined. Very poignant and gorgeously written--hard to believe this was West's first novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elsimom | 8/30/2013

    " A short novella (perfect for the busy holiday season) interesting not only for the discussions of love, relationships, family, duty and war, but for the back-story on the author and the time in which the novella was published. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelley | 8/30/2013

    " Very touching and beautifully written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittany | 8/16/2013

    " It a quick read--less than 100 pages. It gives a fresh insight to the effects of World War 1 on the women that the soldiers leave behind. It plays with time and memory in a way that shows there is something much worse than losing your husband in war because of death. "
