WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Taking to the September meeting.

I really enjoyed this two era mystery where chapters that swap between past and present build up each other in this intricate mystery. The setting is just fabulous as well.

To the finder:
Calgary has an active group of BookCrossers that meet to swap books and discuss book crossing every second Saturday of the month at 11am at the Joshua Tree Cafe on Edmonton Trail. We always love to meet new crossers, so please join us any time you like!

Journal Entry 6 by sing-song at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Tuesday, October 22, 2013
I picked this book as it fit with the war theme. I enjoyed the story - it really brought to life how the war affected people. There was a bit of a stretch near the end, but I could live with it. Interesting characters and all these different strands kept getting woven together.

I was thinking about why I resist thick books; it's too much of a commitment, it's too heavy, etc.. Now that the doorstop book is here maybe I should look forward to the detailed world the author has crafted.
And a thick book can really support a lot of smaller books on Mt TBR.... :)

Journal Entry 9 by wingrureadingwing at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Sunday, March 30, 2014
I have avoided taking this book off Mt TBR for a while because I didn't want to start a long story. But once I got into the book it actually moved along well with interconnected character stories. I enjoyed the book but I think the story would have improved with editing. The ending of each character's story was too wordy and tedious; it lessened the impact of the story for me.

Journal Entry 12 by wingfraculawing at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Tuesday, March 17, 2015
I foraged through to page 146, but I found the pace of the story just to slow to draw me in. This book will return to the group to find a new reader.
