I had to plan on when to read this book, as I wanted to be uninterrupted and if I became tearful, it was ok. Such a grand book. So much to visualize on how people survived this war. Outstanding but painful. Educational and honest. A book I won't forget....ever.

A war story to read and reread
This novel takes place on 2 fronts of world was 2---London and Malta. The description of the destruction done by the Blitz to places and to the people is heartbreaking. The sacrifices of the soldiers on Malta made me cry.

The characters are complex. Most I wanted the best for but with tension of both class struggle and racial intolerance displayed in the story some characters were hateful.

The story is complex. It is a war story and a love story. I thought it was beautifully written. I don't reread books often but I plan to reread this novel.

Since this was our Book Club selection, I plodded through two hundred fifty pages but could bear no more.Thereafter, I simply skimmed a bit here and there to get the gist.The characters lacked depth and the dialogue seemed unrealistic, a parody of British stiff upper lip.

After enjoying Little Bee so much this effort was a real disappointment!
