As to the rest? Well the romantic stuff ...... 'whoosh'.... (went right over my head). There were some slightly strange 'bad sex' scenes......
The WW1 stuff was fairly accurate, not an expert but read a lot of WW1 stuff and spent a lot of time touring the battlefields - not on bus tours....Seems to fit-in with the memories my great-grandad passed on to me (have a lot of his letters, journals etc).
Ending a bit disappointing IMHO. Apparently sequels/prequels are planned/around.
The first half of the book is about the experiences that the five have adapting to the realities of war and the shifts it brings about in their relationships. In the second half, Riley suffers a serious injury which will affect all of the characters in different ways.
I have mixed feelings about this book. It did a very good job of conveying the various facets of war, the experience for those in the trenches, in the hospitals and stranded at home. There were parts that were beautifully written but at other times the choppiness of the narrative became hard to take. I didn't really feel caught up in it until the second half, when it settles down and became (for me) far more involving and moving. The ending is somewhat contrived, but also genuinely satisfying.
The characters could have been better developed. Riley and Nadine's relationship is the central thread, but too often we were told about how they felt for one another rather than feeling it. Rose is a wonderful character, but she is frequently sidelined.Read more ›
