The only well written part of the book is the final chapter in which Hemingway writes of his memories of Spain. Otherwise reads like a poor series of newspaper reports about bull fighting.
An ironic look at human behavior. Amusing snippets about fads & the craziness of real people present & past.
Rings true. Involving.
The character of "Peanut" is ripe for a sequel. Hard to leave behind at the end of the book.
The tech premise is interesting. One suspects not too far beyond reality.
I'd Love to see this made into a series by HBO. Would work. But "read" it first.
Well & subtly narrated.
You only think you know!
Once you get engaged you'll be hooked until the very last.
...for a wild ride. When you think you know where you are you're probably not!
The premise, of time traveling historians visiting WWII England, is good. The author provides more than enough interesting detail about life during WWII, and too much intrusive time travel tropes that are not needed to carry the story. In fact it is hard to find a story or to follow it. Which is unfortunate given the great material the writer had to work with.
