Review: The Red Badge of Courage

User Review  - Scott - Goodreads

A novel that is excellent in some ways, but lackluster in others. It's not hard to see why Crane's novel was so influential. It was probably one of the earliest war stories that stripped away the ... Read full review

User Review  - Ashley Reiner - Goodreads

I couldn't decide between 2 or 3 stars; I liked the story but struggled with the writing style. I simply do not read many books written from the 1890s so it makes it more difficult to read fluidly ... Read full review
