From Here To Eternity

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/9


Yet another classic I need to put on my never-ending/ever-growing reading list since I regard the film adaptation one of the best movies ever made.

The novel was controversial when it came out, so much that some major changes had to be made to the film just to get the military on board with helping the production.

The original cover of the National Book Award-winning novel, though, is good in a classic way. It doesn’t age as well as Catcher in the Rye‘s classic cover. I love the use of the bugle and think the cover would be better if it was just the bugle without the white outlined soldiers. Some other pictorial hint of its military cast would be better, but alas.

Overall, a decent cover that I have to put on an age curve. It would get a worse rating if it was a newer publication.
