8 out of 10

Finally got round to reading this. It was quite hard to get into at first, but well worth the effort. It's quite a gentle look at how 4 very different people come together after the end of the war in Europe but before VJ day and how they each cope with the horror's of war and loss and they have had to endure. Guess I'll have to go and see the film now!

7 out of 10

It is a good thing that I remembered ShadowPi's comments that this book started a bit slowly, or else I may have lost heart and given up reading this in the first 1/3 of the book. Luckily, I decided to continue on and was rewarded with a richly detailed story that kept me reading page after page. I feel as if this novel had much more detail than the movie (which is usually the case when comparing a novel and a movie), but then again it could just be that I saw the movie quite some time ago.

All in all I enjoyed this a fair bit and will now pass it on to bartonz.
