did not like it

Okay, the book won some big award, so my opinion is like, what, a hill of beans - right? Yes, but... listen: the book is well written, good command of english, well researched, etc, etc, but PLEASE, that which is submitted as great fiction does not need to be abysmally dark and depressing. I stopped reading about half way through when the boat full of war orphans was sunk by the nazi U-boat. Mine you the book was depressing up till then, but that tipped my scale. I'd recommend the book to someone dedicated to reading who can ignore the story's melencholy...
