My favourite book Nowadays a lot of people think that the more people have TV or Internet in their homes the fewer people will buy books Its often thought why to read long novels when a play on TV can tell you the same story with colours pictures and actions But Im certain that books are still popular becouse its a cheaper way than to go to the cinema and also you can keep a book forever and read it many time My favourite book is written by Erich Maria Remarque 1898-1970 German-American novelist born in Osnabrck Germany and educated at the University of Mnster He served in the German army during World War I During the war he wrote his first novel All Quite on the Western Front it became an internalional bestseller Ive read a lot of novels by Remarque but most of all I like A time to live and a time to die published in 1954 This novel is about Soldier Ernst Greaber who is doing military service at the Russian front One day he gets a short holiday homeward Once arrived in his native town he learns about the despairs and dissapointment the war has spread over the country The town is bombed down parents friends and relatives are vanished On the desperate search for his missing parents he meets a former companion of his youth Elisabeth They marry but unfortunately Ernst must leave his native town and departure back to the front Just arriving in Russia Ernst is involved into the midst of a conflict When he gets a lift and has an opportunity to leave the war he refusesbecouse the his troops are losing At this point Ernst perish The main character Ernst Greaber is a sensitive just and loyal person From his point of view this degrading situation in his native town is much harder to him than the fight taking place
