Cinfhen We visited the Churchill War Rooms on our recent trip to London so I can perfectly visualize where the secretary sat. It was really cool to see the big world maps pinned up on the walls and all the little pushpins marking their path. 3h

I‘ve come to the conclusion that historical fiction set during World War II just isn‘t my cup of tea. This one just didn‘t wow me. Please check out my full review! https://amysbookreviews.com/2019/06/11/the-lost-girls-of-paris-by-pam-jenoff-rev...

Sorry but I just can‘t go on with this book.

SamAnne Can I ask why? It‘s on my “read this year” list. I loved Life After Life. But haven‘t ready anything else by her. What did you not like? 1d
CarolynM I'm also interested to know why. I liked it a lot. 23h
Sharpeipup @SamAnne Of course! I found the initial conversations among the informants to be tedious and boring. Without those, I think the pacing would be better suited to holding my interest. 18h

The pregnancy had been a mistake. There was nothing divine in creating life or taking it—it was simply something humans did.

Jennifer Ryan is back on the Brit Lit Podcast to tell us about her new novel, The Spies of Shilling Lane. She talked about the importance of the British stiff upper lip in the second world war, why women made great spies in that period, and more. https://buff.ly/2Xe01G5

I was not sure about this book, it was recommended by a friend and author so I dove in. It is moving and a tale told very well.

I never, ever thought I‘d quote Arendt in description if a novel, but the “banality of evil” kept running through my mind as I read AT THE WOLF‘s TABLE.

The first half to 2/3 of this book is extremely powerful. I found rest of the book disappointing.
