Lovely book, recommended by a colleague, about a part of history that I knew nothing about: the WW2 German Occupation of the Channel Islands for 5 years. Written in letters, telegrams, and finally in investigative notes....simply lovely and I can see...more

Suggested by a colleague. Excellent and rich writing but I spent the book quite anxious, wondering what would happen to these hapless characters in such a dangerous place as Saigon in such a horrific time in its history. Very interesting. Percival/Ch...more

Recommended by a colleague. Who knew statistics could be humourous? Amusing, Toronto-focused, New Brunswick-phobic, liked some of the fun graphs.

Given to me by my sister - not 100% why though. Canadian mystery, set in the 1950s in England, 11-year-old narrator....good book, not my usual thing though. I think it continues with other books, but I'll stop here, I think....unless, of course, my s...more
