    New York Times best-selling author Sarah Waters received sweeping critical acclaim for her debut, Tipping the Velvet, and has been a finalist for the Orange and Booker Prizes. In The Night Watch she tells the riveting, intersecting tales of four Londoners during and after World War II. As these four people survive the devastation of war and experience the dizzying heights of life, their paths cross in ways none of them can foresee.

    "Stopped early"
    Overall

    I am one hour and 46 minutes into the book and have stopped. So far, the author has carefully and eloquently described a multitude of boring daily tasks of various people, without capturing my interest at all. Unfortuneately, I bought it the day before the previous review was posted.

    It is 1946, and the eve of the harshest winter for a hundred years. Servicemen are pouring home from the war to a Britain beset by food and fuel shortages and a desperate housing crisis. Recently demobbed, Billy Greer has no intention of returning to his life in Somerset. But in an attempt to impress Annie, the woman he walked away from at the start of the war, he stays. As the country is brought to its knees by blizzards, the realities of immigration and propaganda in post-war life prove too hash for some.

    "It depends"
    Overall

    I usually do not take a chance on books without customer reviews, but I loved the summaries and time period this covered. The narrator is good, and the writer has a gift for clearly describing human intent and hidden agenda. Much of the text is of strong historical value. However, overall, one may need patience to achieve the end, as the story is slow to develop with rare tense moments.

    Just a week before their marriage, Christine's fiance calls off the wedding, leaving her heartbroken. With hopes of helping her through a difficult time, Christine's best friend Jessica enrolls them both on a humanitarian mission in Peru, to work at an orphanage called El Girasol, The Sunflower.

    Amazon Customer says: "Fabulous"
    "Simple but memorable"
    Overall

    This is a simplistic story, but incredibly hard to put down. In the end, this book stayed with me and inspired me more than I thought it would. I strongly recommend it.
