Publisher's Summary

Josef Schwejk lebt 1914 als behördlich anerkannter Idiot in Prag. Dennoch soll er Kriegsdienst leisten, und so gerät er ins riesige Getriebe der k. u. k. Armee. Schwejk wird Bursche beim Feldkurat Katz, der ihn beim Kartenspiel an Oberleutnant Lukasch verspielt. Mit dem kommt er an die Front, findet aber immer wieder Schlupflöcher, um den Kämpfen zu entgehen. Er verpasst den Zug, vertrinkt sein Fahrgeld und stolpert von einem Missgeschick ins Nächste. Mit Josef Schwejk hat Jaroslav Hašek eine der komischsten Figuren der europäischen Literatur geschaffen.

Wonderful book in the abridged version

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

An unabridged version would be more suitable for this classic Austrian / Czech masterpiece of literature.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Die Abenteuer des braven Soldaten Schwejk?

Hašek's wonderful capability of twisting words and creating hilarious situations. The book is simply fun!

What does Wolfram Berger bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Wolfgang Berger has a wonderful Czech / Austrian accent, which contributes to the authentic scenery of the old Habsburg-monarchy.
