it was ok
Read in September, 2007

I was very excited about this book, as I have spent a bit of time in France recently and am interested in the time of the occupation and how this affected the lives of ordinary French men and women. Plus it seems to have had rave reviews everywhere, touted as a 'masterpiece' on the front cover. I have to say I was dissapointed as I only got half way, then got distracted by another more exciting book (then another, then another....). It just didn't flow well and none of the characters really came to life for me. Maybe I will try again to finish it. Maybe it lost something in the translation.
