really liked it
Read in March, 2012

A brilliant book. Hard to read, so much so that I stopped about 5 pages from the end. Fool! I will try and right this error though before too long. Have to go and stand in Easons and read it! His dry style is a bit hard to take but then when he comes to the descriptions of what happened the family during the occupation by the Nazis the economy of emotion in his descriptions make the harrowing facts so much clearer and devastating somehow. I really respect how this book was put together and the care and articulacy of his his particular style.
