In that, the two young lovers were willing to declare their love and believe in it despite the inevitability of the second world war. It was inspirational in presenting this young couple, almost to represent that not everyone had been defeated or willing to admit defeat, just because of the war. The simplicity of this message only developed its beauty and value.
The only real problem I had with this novel was the lack of depth, both in regard to the characters as well as, the storyline: we never did find out much about Stan and his recovery, nor about the mysterious Alice. Or even, what Stan thought of Charlie's relationship with his twin sister.
In terms of the storyline, I disliked the ending it was very fast. Throughout the novel, Charlie and Gracie lack their parents' blessings, this formulates as the main obstacle (alongside the war, obviously). However, at the end, this is no longer a problem: they make love despite the immorality. It is probably apparent that I disliked this, I'd have preferred that they'd have waited. Surely, that is what Gracie's father wanted: he wanted to ensure that their love could endure obstacles (the war), and be patient. They, apparently, failed.
The speed, I suppose, is understandable in that the war heightened the desperation and urgency of Gracie's relationship.
Not only this, but at the end they get married anyway (still without the parents' blessings). If anything, this made the plotline rather pointless. This was only enhanced when the reader recalls that Gracie's parents were actually not against the marriage- they just wanted to wait for Gracie's 21st birthday. Therefore, they were going to get married anyway.Read more ›
