Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frances | 2/19/2014

    " My favorite of the Regeneration trilogy "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kiran Watwani | 1/18/2014

    " This was the only English language book in the only book shop open in Hikkaduwa on my trip there. So bought it without much thought, and any knowledge of a prequel. Stressful, because I don't know many of the real life personalities this book uses. And also because it's about PTSD and dissociation. Definitely not light holiday reading but brilliant for war insights and World War I. Love Prior, the guy most central to the book I think. An officer of the British army now employed with the Ministry of Munitions, struggling with PTSD and a sex addiction maybe. Now that I have a warning I will read Regeneration in isolation probably so people around me won't be worried about why I am so distressed. Brilliant book. Will definitely read Sassoon now. He's important to this book and his narratives are maybe the most interesting of all in the book. "

    " Meh... confusing story (actually a continuation of the story) of WWI through the eyes of gay English soldiers hospitalized back home for battle fatigue. Tries to tie together (much less successfully than book #1) themes of conscientious objectors, witch hunts for homosexuals, and "shall shock." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marie Bouteille | 1/11/2014

    " My second favourite in the trilogy. The spying story is thrilling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 1/6/2014

    " The second book in the Regeneration trilogy, but I read it last. Probably my second favorite of the three, with first best and last least enjoyable. Once again the theme of war and its profound physical but even more psychic impact on young men's minds and bodies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaz | 1/6/2014

    " Not as good as the first book in the trilogy but still a good story about the struggles with the mind post war. Will have to read the final instalment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 12/29/2013

    " The second book in a great trilogy - Eye in the Door is the weakest of the three books. However, it is still worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jude Brigley | 12/26/2013

    " Had some excellent moments as when Prior speaks as his second self but not my favourite of the trilogy. Hard-hitting and memorable however. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brooks | 12/21/2013

    " Good continuation of casualties of WW1. Great description of impact on mental health of men in the trenches. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 11/24/2013

    " My favorite of the Regeneration trilogy. Billy Prior is a fabulous, real, vivid, character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 9/24/2013

    " A worthy followup to Regeneration, and further proof that Barker can tackle huge themes and existential problems without losing her audience for lack of interest. Her prose shines and her characters are rich and complex. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie Grainger | 8/27/2013

    " The second book in a great trilogy! A must read for lovers of history!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 8/2/2013

    " Gripping reading, hard to put down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo Farrar | 7/13/2013

    " I'm not sure I really 'enjoyed' reading this book though it is well written and subject matter is really interesting! it's not a page turner and took me a while to get through it. I am looking forward to 3rd one but might give it a while. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffrey | 6/7/2013

    " A book about domestic spying during World War I with the same cast of characters that can be found in other books by the author. The writing is of uniformly high quality. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tricia | 2/5/2013

    " This second part of the Regeneration trilogy was a bit harder to get into. In this one we are following Billy the most, while still getting glimpese of the others' lives. His character is so much more difficult to get a hold of, to have sympathy for. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 1/14/2012

    " Pretty much everyone should read her "Regeneration" series. It's tough going (WW I, poets, psychiatry, morality of war) but worth it entirely. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe | 12/5/2011

    " Sequel to Regeneration, interesting follow-up that continues to deal with impact of 1st World War on a variety of equally interesting characters. The author portrays well the feelings and thoughts of the pacifist / anti war movement of that period. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Zach | 7/17/2011

    " Very different than Regeneration, and not quite as good. I felt like it was something I had to read after Regeneration, but I'm not sure if I'll read the third - this one touched on very different subjects that just didn't hit home for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie | 5/14/2011

    " Continuation of Pat Barker's trilogy of the futility of war and its negative effects. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tudor | 3/19/2011

    " After reading the 2nd volume, I'm thinking that the war wounds were so profound that they must exist as scars even in our generation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/14/2011

    " More war, more madness. A good follow-up to Regeneration, but not quite as powerful. Still, well worth the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandyboy | 12/10/2010

    " all gets a tad bleak and pointless in this thankfully short volume "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angelique | 12/6/2010

    " So not for me. It started off soo good, just like the other ones... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 pacjennifer | 6/22/2010

    " Back to Rivers, the psychologist in WWI, and his insights into the damage war does to men. The author, again, peels away the surface of propriety, English propriety, and lets us see the real people. Feels a lot like Regeneration #1, not sure if I'll go for the third book in Regeneration or not. "
