Almost spot on,
This review is from: A Thousand Suns (Paperback)
I saw this book a while back and was quite taken with the synopsis, but have only just had opportunity to purchase and read it.
The book follows the events leading up to a secret Allied surrender in April 1945, which only comes to light on a discovery in modern day America. I found the book a gripping read and quite difficult to put down. The author has a very good writing style, which meant the book flowed effortlessly. All the characters and locations were well described and I felt you could place yourself in the plane, Berlin or America, and understand the thoughts and actions as if you were there. Two weeks on, I still remember the description of the Messerschmidt Squadron Leader over the Atlantic coast - but I am giving no clues!!
My only criticism is that I felt the ending could have had a bit more of a crescendo. The storyline lifted and lifted and I was (probably) expecting a little but more, instead I felt it plateaued out a bit at the end.
In saying that, I would highly recommend this book - I look forward to reading more by the author.
