it was amazing
bookshelves: historical-fiction, ww2, title-appeal
Read in September, 2011

I really loved this book and I wish I'd read it before now. I didn't really know what kind of story to expect going into it but I was captivated from the very first page and didn't want to put the book down. The story is told through letters between all the characters. There is a lot of characters and I thought it might be hard to keep track but it wasn't- I felt like I knew every character as well as the next and it all worked really well. Juliet's sarcastic and intelligent tone is exactly the type of thing I like to read and she made me laugh several times throughout the book. I also really enjoyed reading the letters to and from Dawsey and Sidney. I thought all the characters were amazingly well created and felt very real. I think the ending was definitely a tad predictable but it still felt perfect. Overall, a great read and one I can see myself returning to again.
