Overall, Journey's End is a very good read. It brings the silliness and immaturity of war to the audiences attention, making us realise that we are lucky to live in our society today as 'the great war' has shaped our country as a whole and has changed the way in which we lead our lives. We also realise how different the expectations were, with the conflict of 'stiff upper lip vs. human emotion'. Throughout the play Sherriff makes us realise how hard it is to fight your desire of showing human emotion against the expectations of their society. I really enjoyed the way he alerted us to the horrors of war but brought us through with friendship. I would highly recommend this book to anyone, especially if you enjoy history or war time texts. I hope you thoroughly enjoy it as much as myself.
