Erich Maria Remarque antiwar novel “All QUIET ON THE WESTERN Front” published in 1929. Talks about the story of Paul, a German soldier in the first World war.

I enjoyed reading the novel. Talked by a person who wasn’t so lucky in the war and died. I found also interesting how Erich Maria tells us how the protagonist dies.

    He fell in October 1918, on day that was so quiet and still on the whole front, that the army report confined itself to the single sentence: All quiet on the Western Front.                                                  He had fallen forward and lay on the earth as though sleeping. Turning Him over one saw that he could not have suffered long; his face had an expression of calm, as though almost glad the end had come. (p. 296)

Normally in novels, the main character doesn’t die.


In conclusion the Book tells a very different view of the war.


PW#3 “Boat”

“Wake up Sven.” Set my father to me. It was morning and the sun began to shine. I ate bread, brown cheese and milk for breakfast whit my father, Ole. A big strong man with long blond hair. My mother and my little brother Lars were still sleeping. We got out of the house and only the fishermen were awake. We walked down to the rocky beach, where our boat was. Her name was “Olivia”. My father chose that name because it was the same name as my mother. The boat was colorful and decorated like the rest of the fisherman’s boat. But only ours had a thig red stripe going around the boat. My father had already but the necessary things yesterday. I was excited, it was my first day of fishing. We sailed to a spot near a rocky cliff. My father said to me “We arrived, now it is your turn Sven” I took the net and put it in the water it in the water. Then we waited and waited. I sit in a corner of the ship. After a while I sleep…

IRJE #2 Can’t wait

In Khaled Hosseini THE KITE RUNNER, the protagonist explains us that for all of Kabul, Kite-fighting was the highlight of the winters.

“Every winter, districts in Kabul held a kite-fighting tournament. And if you were a boy living in Kabul, the day of the tournament was undeniably the highlight of the cold season. I never slept the night before the tournament. I’d roll from side to side, make shadow animals on the wall, even sit on the balcony in the dark, a blanket wrapped around me. I felt like a soldier trying to sleep in the trenches the night before a major battle. And that wasn’t so far off. In Kabul, fighting kites was a little like going to war.” ( p. 52)

I like this quat because it let my thing of when I was a child, and the next day was my birthday, and I couldn’t sleep because I was so excited.

IRJE #1 “a sin is a variation of theft”

In Khaled Hosseini THE KITE RUNNER, the father of protagonist Baba talks to his son about what he thinks is sin.

“there is only one sin, only one. And that is theft. Every other sin is a variation of theft.”

“‘When you kill a man, you steal a life” Baba said.” You steal his wife’s right to a husband, rob his children of a father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness. Do you see?'” (p. 19)

I like what Baba said, because it is true, and it feels more wrongdoing a bat thing after reading this.

My Personal Writing to they shall not grow old

The thinks that I thought was surprising, Interesting and my ancestors who fought on both world wars. Surprised, because I always imagen that the trenches were more terrifying, but when I saw the trenches in color and the thought of the soldier, gave me the sense that it was livelier than I imagen. It was also very Interesting, how they thought of these “Horrific” thinks that they lived in, like ” being in the first line of trenches was fun.”. Last point is my ancestors. They came to my mind because there were also affected by the war like this British soldier. In conclusion, the movie was very good at brining me to think about those men who fought on wars.


I’m celiac.  Meaning I’m allergic to Gluten. So, I can’t eat for example “normal Bread” but it’s not so easy,                                                                                          because of cross contamination, like if I cut bread with a knife and whit the same knife I cut a Gluten free bread, it’s contaminated. The point is that being in a Gluten free diet is hard and I wouldn’t recommended eating a Gluten free dyed, if you aren’t celiac.



Hi, my name is Jan, and I was born in Paderborn, Germany. When I was 10 I moved to Puebla, Mexico. It’s my first year attending in Brookes and my interests are playing videogames, coding and doing sports.

I don’t read a lot of Booke’s. The cause is that I don’t fined often Book’s that interest me. My favored ones are Level 4 and Die Kinder Karavana.

Like you see I am a bad writer, my spelling is bad one of the reasons I think is that I cannot concentrate very good as I slightly have ADHD and the other reason is that I don’t read a lot.
