Publisher Description

Published to international critical and popular acclaim, this intensely romantic yet stunningly realistic novel spans three generations and the unimaginable gulf between the First World War and the present. As the young Englishman Stephen Wraysford passes through a tempestuous love affair with Isabelle Azaire in France and enters the dark, surreal world beneath the trenches of No Man's Land, Sebastian Faulks creates a world of fiction that is as tragic as A Farewell to Arms and as sensuous as The English Patient. Crafted from the ruins of war and the indestructibility of love, Birdsong is a novel that will be read and marveled at for years to come.

Significant story telling

A beautiful book with serious detail about WWI as well as about people’s relationship with life itself.

A book you will never forget.

Haunting. Very well written. I'm not usually a history fan, but this book reads easily and the story is superbly told.

Haunting

I just finished the print version of this book and I am heartbroken that it has come to an end. Birdsong is the best book I've read in a long time. It's devastating, gruesome, and a beautiful picture of all types of love and life during wartime. This has moved me in a way I cannot explain. I would recommend this book to anyone.
