I am apparently one of the few people who just do not see what all of the hype is about on this one. I was really excited to read this after all of the glowing reviews it got, but I was left extremely ... Read full review

I was looking forward to reading this book as I have heard so many good things about it. But after 25 pages I had to give it up, which was disappointing as I love books set in WWII. I didn't have a ... Read full review

User Review  - CLM - Goodreads
