Life Class

Title: Life Class
Author: Pat Barker
Penguin, 2008

Arty youth in the year of 1914 discover love and sex in the shadow of the Great War. It is mildly interesting for someone who is hung up on the era and the theme (i.e. me!) For anyone else, get Barker's Regeneration Trilogy about the war. It surpasses this watered down novel as well as most things written on about this interesting historical period.
