In the vast scenes of ... Show more

This book is difficult to classify as either good or bad. Parts of it were vivd and gripping (the war scenes), but the main characters, Stephen and Isabelle, were lacking something. I really did'nt like or understand either of them. I did'nt so much see their relationship as a deep love story, but rather a giving in to lust by two people who were either bored or dissatisfied. I could not relate to Isabell's reasoning behind her actions. I understand what the author was trying to do here and I certainly respect it. If I were rating just his descriptions of the war and the soldiers I would give four and a half stars. These were outstanding. It was the fleshing out of the characters that dissappointed me.

A WWI LOVE STORY

by donna on Jul 17, 2007

ALTHOUGH WORLD WAR I IS NOT OF MUCH INTEREST TO ME, I WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRISED AT HOW MUCH I ENJOYED THIS NOVEL. IT IS A NOVEL THAT IS TO BE SAVORED BECAUSE OF THE WAY IT IS SO BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN. I ENJOYED THE LOVE STORY BUT ALSO ENJOYED THE INFORMATION PERTAINING TO WORLD WAR I. THIS NOVEL WILL DRAW YOU INTO THE STORY AND KEEP YOU THERE.
