Book Review #1174
The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane
Rating: two stars (out of four)
It was cool to read this with my American Literature class and really dive into the history and analogy of the story. I thought the descriptions and character interaction was well done and the story accurately showed the brutalities of war. I liked hearing my professor's analyzation of the novel and my peer's interpretation of the text. It was an interesting facet of history, but it wasn't my favorite book. I appreciated having it with the other readings for the literature class though.
