The Radetzky March
The Radetzky March | Joseph Roth
10 posts | 9 read | 10 to read
The Radetzky March , Joseph Roth's classic saga of the privileged von Trotta family, encompasses the entire social fabric of the Austro-Hungarian Empire just before World War I. The author's greatest achievement, The Radetzky March is an unparalleled portrait of a civilization in decline, and as such, a universal story for our times.

This book is beautifully written, the story is a bit dissapointing (or perhaps this is one of those books you have to read more than once).
⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book describes the fall of the Habsburger empire along the lives of three generations. An interesting theme, a style of writing I liked and some interesting and well worked out characters. Still I was a bit disappointed at the end. Maybe I expected too much or maybe I missed the point. Unsatisfying. #1001books Picture: Cadzand, Holland

Just so beautifully written. It's about three male generations of a family, honor, appearances, and the twilight of the Austro-Hungarian empire. It wasn't a quick starter, but it drew me in after about 40 pages or so.

Trotta was not sufficiently experienced to know that even in real life there are untutored peasant lads with hearts of gold and that a lot of truth, however clumsily rendered, is put into badly written books.

In those days before the Great War when the events narrated in this book took place, it had not yet become a matter of indifference whether a man lived or died. When one of the living had been extinguished another did not at once take his place in order to obliterate him: there was a gap where he had been, and both close and distant witnesses of his demise fell silent whenever they became aware of this gap.

INFINITY BOOKS (GREAT USED BOOKSTORE IN TOKYO) FIND #4

A copy of this sat unread on my shelves for years back in Canada. It's either in a box somewhere at my parents' or more likely long gone when I liquidated my library of 10,000 books in order to move to Japan. I'm ready to recommit!

LeahBergen Sounds good! 3y
