    One thought on “The Deer Hunter”

    1. I don't remember how many times I have already watched this movie The Deer Hunter (1978).An in-depth examination of the way that the Vietnam war affects the lives of people in a small industrial town in the USA.Cast:Robert De Niro as. MichaelJohn Cazale as StanJohn Savage as StevenChristopher Walken as NickMeryl Streep as LindaGeorge Dzundza as John

    2. to be honest, i read the screenplay by michael cimino and not this novel. but it was the closest i could find here on GR. the screenplay is very descriptive almost like a novel itself. one of the best screenplays around.

    3. (ENGLISH REC BELOW SPANISH ONE)Duro relato de la guerra pero que afortunadamente no se centra en exceso en los detalles más sórdidos y cruentos, aunque es totalmente realista. Me ha gustado, aunque me esperaba que la parte de la guerra propiamente dicha durara más. Sin embargo, fue una buena sorpresa que la mayor parte del libro se centrara en la personalidad de Mike y su relación con Nick y Steven.***A really hard book about the horrors of the war, but thankfully they're less described than [...]

    4. القصة هي تقريبا تجسيد عكسي لفيلم رامبو لبيان زيف ما أخرجه تيد كوتشيف في فيلمه الرجل الخارق الذي يَقْتُلُ ولا يُقتَلُ المهم ينقلنا "جيرولد مانديس " إلى منتهى العذاب والمأساة والفاجعة والحزن حيث إستطاع أن يصور مدى الضرر العقلي المعنوي والجسدي الذي خلّفته الحرب الفيتنامية ال [...]

    5. I read a few chapters before I realised this was a 'novelisation', which went some way to explaining the 'The brown-haired man looked at the cup' vibe I was getting. And why was I reading a novelisation of The Deer Hunter? Well, I couldn't find my main book and it was lying nearby I may have given it two stars but let me tell you it was a blessed relief to dip into this after struggling through Billy Budd for a week or two.

    6. Great story that takes readers into the lives of those who go to war and what the consequences are mentally and physically. The author does a great job catching the emotional roller coaster ride of war and life before and after.

    7. Book of the bloody film. I'm there thinking it's interestingly minimalist and surprisingly cinematic and trying to work out whether it's a clever choice or just lazy writing. Meh. I must watch the film again.

    8. Disturbing book about war and politics and Vietnam and comradeship, especially to young man who had missed being drafted to Vietnam by a hair.
