Reviews & Summaries
book about wwII
I read this because I'm interested in that part of the world and because it was written by a UofM professor of creative writing. But it honestly wasn't that great. I got what he was going for, and I liked the overall theme of showing the different perspectives of people involved in the war. But for something that was billed as a love story, there was almost no interaction between those two characters. Having parallel narratives is fine, but when the two hardly cross at all (maybe 10 pages were devoted to that?), it just felt hollow and like it was going nowhere. I think someone who was interested in military history, specifically POW history would probably enjoy this though.
