This is a beautifully written book and surprising in the history of Paris - a period of time that I didn't know about even after living there for 5 years. Plus just seeing the city from a very different vantage point was compelling. I really enjoyed the book and liked the reader as well.
There is something about hearing events you know about through the eyes of people you care about, that makes a story so profound without feeling manipulated by the author. Plus this book really moves, and I'm already wondering what these people and their children will be doing in the next book.
I read somewhere that this is somewhat autobiographical which makes it even more amazing. I loved the voices that the reader used. I was living in India!!
I enjoyed the twists and turns but soon I got sick of both main characters - they became annoying.
I felt I was right there with this woman. The plot was laid out so that I was not sure what would happen next. I learned a lot about the resistance and what that life might have been like for an average member. I was sorry when it ended.
