Not well written
The book had NO plot whatsoever! The author tried to be artsy with the novel but instead succeeding in writing a jumbled mess. Don¿t waste your time. The cover is beautiful and the title holds great potential but there lays the best parts of the entire book.

Disappointing and unsatisfactory
A let down after reading OUT STEALING HORSES. It started out piquing my interest with the sister's impressions of family and village life, her older caring brother, her dysfunctional parents and grandparents. However as the story continued, once the brother's involvement in anti-Nazi activities ended and he left, her wanderings to cities with strange names and sketchily drawn figures went nowhere. We never found out who fathered her expected child and why the pregnancy even happened in the story line. Perhaps it translation wasn't as good as it could have been - the words didn't flow. Not to say that the descriptions of the various locales weren't good - they were. I could not recommend this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
