Simon 托尔金 Creates A WWI Novel Unlike Others In “No Man’s Land”
无人’s Land by Simon 托尔金 is such a high-caliber work of WWI fiction which even readers who don’不能挑选历史小说’抵抗它。在某种程度上，西蒙正在追随他的祖父’s footsteps: When J.R.R. 托尔金 wrote The Lord of the Rings, he used symbolism and allegory to portray his interpretation of the horrors he had seen during WWI.
But unlike J.R.R. 托尔金, Simon talks directly about the war. His novel however is not a war book. It is rather, the dramatic and suspenseful story of a man in violent times and how his character is shaped.
There are countless WWI novels out there, but what keeps a reader absorbed in this new interpretation is masterful plotting and character development by 托尔金.
虽然在某些书中’s scenes, 托尔金 has not stayed away from clichés, nevertheless this is a book which takes the readers to another world and its vivid descriptions provide an exceptional example of how to fictionalize true 历史的 events.
