Read in September, 2009

This book was not particularily fast-paced, it was a character driven story with really very little 'action' until the last quarter.

Furthermore, it was written in three distinct sections (1947, 1944, 1941) which chopped up the story more and then it was also written in reverse chronology which again took away fluidity and, i feel, the proper character development.

Overall, the characters were mostly likeable, the time period was interesting and i did like it. The book just isn't one to really grab you and keep you enthralled.
