    Oh, for heaven s sake, Isabelle Paris is overrun The Nazis control the city What is an eighteen year old girl to do about all of that What, indeed.I really didn t know what to expect going into The Nightingale Given the quote about love and war in the blurb, I kind of thought it might be an historical romance set during the Second World War like the world really needs another The Bronze Horseman but it turned out to be so much than that.There are love stories in The Nightingale, but that s not really what the book is about It s about women in wartime, and it s an interesting, moving portrait of the Nazi occupation of France and what this meant for all the wives, daughters and widows left behind We re told in the book that men always assume war is about them it s true so this is the untold story of the home front These are the women who are forced to house Nazi soldiers, the women who are manipulated into betraying their friends, the women who wish they could fight for their country and the women who secretly do The main story is about two ...

    It was the comparisons to All the Light We Cannot See that attracted me to The Nightingale Though both novels are set during WW2 the similarities for me stopped there All the Light is a magical novel electric with beautiful resounding prose and refined artistry The Nightingale is a novel motored essentially by clich and exaggeration Clich d writing isn t just resorting continually to stock phrases though Hannah does this a lot it s also straining for tension through exaggeration to the point where dramatic tension degenerates into melodrama No surprise that clich d phrases often perform a task of exaggeration She was scared to death She couldn t believe her eyes The Nightingale reads like YA fantasy fiction Everything is wildly exaggerated so that WW2 is perceived as a kind of post nuclear holocaust world where this one event utterly eclipses the world we live in The perspective of the novel is one of hindsight as if all the characters are experiencing not the daily hardships of the war but the totality of all WW2 s horrors It s like her research consisted of jotting down every single horror story and deprivation and shoe horning them all into her story It s mostly set in a small town in the middle of France yet this small town is swarming with German soldiers, Gestapo, SS, Jews, bomb damage as if...

    I ve been told by so many people that I need to read this book It gets so much hype that I thought there was absolutely NO way it would live up to it But it did than that It surpassed it My favourite books is a pretty exclusive list and it usually takes me a while to decide whether a book fits that list or not but this was an instant favourite I absolutely adored it Even just thinking about it now I am fighting back tears because this was such a beautiful and vivid story I felt like I was with these characters through all of their terrible experiences and I just wanted to shelter them from it all The women in particular, the sisters, were absolutely inspirational They showed incredible strength in this terrible time and I loved seeing how women contributed to the war This was just a story that really resonated with me It has a special place...

    So many 4 5 star reviews here, but I m afraid I just thought this WWII historical novel was okay There are so many novels about this time period and I didn t think this one rose above the heap The last one to do that for me was Kate Atkinson s Life After Life and this just can t even compare to that or to David Gillham s City of Women.There s some nice detail about the home front in France, which I have read less about than the English home front And there are some exciting scenes featuring the French resistance s efforts to get downed pilots out of France But there are also some small but annoying anachronisms antibiotics were not really available until after the war Germans didn t put up signs saying people would be put in concentration camps Everything seemed very predictable a hiding place in the barn is ...

    I really tried, you guys There was even a 20% period when my standards were reduced so low from the previous 70%, that I thought maybe, maybe 2 But the last 10% was offensive Yes, I said offensive Review later And by review, I mean bitch rant fest People keep asking me how I didn t like this book Honestly, I want to ask them how they did.Never have I ever read a book by such a clueless, air headed author.And I actually don t even mean that to be mean, or to pick on KH It s just that quite frankly, those are the truest words to describe what was obviously in Hannah s mind when she wrote this book nothing.She forgets what she writes a chapter, a page, a paragraph, hell, in a few instances, even one sentence, earlier Examples Mais oui, but of course 1 She forgets to age characters this in the first chapter Isabelle is 4 and Vianne is 14 when their mother dies Vianne is taken crying to Le Jardin and falls in love At 16, she s pregnant, at 17 she has a miscarriage Then, of her miscarriage, Hannah writes She d crawled into her grief and cocooned it around her, unable to care about anyone or anything certainly not a needy, wailing four year old sister 2 She forgets the weather Isabelle treks out of the house pre dawn in knee deep snow and then steals a bicycle that same morning from an SS officer who is across the street in a cafe Okay, so I m from Ottawa, which in 2015 was the coldest capi...

    FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED 5 STARS HOLY WOW This book was absolutely epic A sweeping, breathtaking journey that captivated me from the first page with the strength and beauty of the writing Truly an unforgettable story The Nightingale has a 4.8 5 rating average on which is HUGE and what that basically means is that practically everyone who is reading it is loving it And I m now adding my own 5 STAR rating to that list because this book owned my heart The ending was so powerful that I read the last 10 pages with tears pouring down my face and days after finishing my read, I still can t stop thinking about it.I will say upfront though that this book was a little different than the kinds I usually read and review though because it wasn t solely focused on a love story, even though there were two love stories within it.While men endure great hardship during war, it affects everyone This is the often unspoken story of women s war Mothers, daughter, sisters, wives this is the story of their strength, endurance, sacrifice, and courage during the darkest part of their lives So many of them didn t just wait for their men to return but took many grave risks to save as many other lives as they could.We begin the story in 1995 with an old woman towards the end of her life, moving out of her house into a retirement home Without much of a future ahead of her, she begins to look backward at ...

    I m not sure what I can say about this book that hasn t already been said, but the quality and sheer excellence to this story blew my mind I m not typically a fan of historical fiction, which is likely why I ve avoided it for so long, but once this was described to me as historical fiction light I felt it was safe to take a gamble on it When we decided for this to be the Suspenseful Clues and Thrilling Reviews September book choice, I was nervous because WHAT IF I HATED THIS BELOVED BOOK Clearly this is a WWII saga, but at heart I felt this was a variety of love stories Sure there was romance, but I m talking the love for a people, the love for a country, and the love for fighting for all that is good and right It ll be awhile before I can pick up another emotional read because I don t know how I ll recover from this one Please, even if like me you steer clear of historical fiction and love stories, do yourse...

    For me this was a fusion of sub literary chick lit and WWII fiction in that it was too cliche and melodramatic much of the time I thought the female perspective of occupied France and the tales of the resistance as well as the opposing sisters perspectives were generally good ideas but the whole thing lacked in the execution.The tone of the book doesn t feel authentic to the time period and there are numerous unbelievable incidents and ...
