The Ghost Road is an interesting book that intersperses the sacred (Melanesian death rites) with the profane (graphic depictions of risky sexual behavior) in an attempt to reconcile man's actions with the inevitability of death. The story itself is a split narrative: the psychoanalyst William Rivers treats men returning from the front during World War I and officer Billy Prior details his military and sexual actions leading up to his final battle in France. As a conclusion to the trilogy (Regeneration Trilogy Pb, it is poignant, powerful and bitter-sweet, and would earn higher marks. Obvilously I rate is as the former. Unlike the previous books in the series, The Ghost Road focuses primarily on Billy Prior rather than Dr. Rivers.

Written by Pat Barker. Narrated by Paul McGann. The first in a stunning trilogy about the First World War, the novel takes a real life encounter between a doctor running a hospital for the wounded, and Siegfried Sassoon. Craiglockhart, a hospital for officers ravaged by their experiences in trench warfare, is the setting for Pat Barker's 'Regeneration'. Here the poet Siegfried Sassoon, author of an article condemning the war, came under the care of psychiatrist . R Rivers whose duty, as he saw it, was to return Sassoon to all the horrors of the Front, because Sassoon was sane, was healthy – and he had made a commitment.
