Kirsten's Reviews > Ha'penny
Solid story, and I like something in her writing, some kind of deceptive simplicity, that works so well for this topic. My worry in the first book was that she wouldn't justify the invocation of fascism - I think there are many books set in the WWII era that use the setting merely as a plot device, which is vile. But Walton builds slowly to show the gradual normalization of terrifying things, and all of that combines to find new ways to pierce perception and promote insight. I don't know, I guess I'm saying this might get through to someone who hasn't figured it out yet, and if one more person learns to stand up to fascism, then it's worth it.
