I was apprehensive after seeing the reviews from friends and at one point decided not to pick it up.
Finished reading yesterday, so met the deadline too :-))
I liked the book, well I just liked the book. Nothing that is very overwhelming here, and the war-related parts are somewhat a drag at times, but that's where he builds up the human relations, I suppose.On the other hand, he rushed over some part where he could have dwelled upon a little more.Did like the ending (because the boy was named John)/didn't like it (the fellow Robert had no business to be there). Bringing in the grand-daughter was a nice idea.
My conclusion,Isabelle wasn't worth it perhaps!!
