  • A blockbuster of a book... raw and brutal and angry

    The New York Times
  • The achievement of an exceptional novelist... Filled with a wide range of human emotions, with humour and nobility, with rage and love, with savagery and tenderness

    New York Herald Tribune
  • Extraordinary and utterly irresistable ... a compelling and compassionate story

    Los Angeles Times
  • Ferocious... the most realistic and forceful novel I've read about life in the army

    The New Yorker
  • The only one of my contemporaries who I felt had more talent than myself was James Jones. And he has also been the only writer of any time for whom I felt any love

    Norman Mailer
  • Certain places seem to exist mainly because someone has written about them. Kilimanjaro belongs to Ernest Hemingway. Oxford, Mississippi belongs to William Faulkner ... A great deal of Honolulu itself has always belonged for me to James Jones

    Joan Didion
  • From Here to Eternity has fine qualities in abundance... No novel had so vividly - and shockingly, to a civilian readership - conveyed the brutality of peacetime army life
