Lol. I've read more than 9 books this year, but not this week. I must be slacking! : )
It was a great light read. I enjoyed it even though it was somewhat predictable.
What an incredible story this is! I loved it! I actually listened to it on audio and it was great to hear different voices for each of the characters reading their own letters. Hope you enjoy it!
PLEASE go ahead and read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I loved it -- and believe me, it's NOT the kind of book I usually read. It's what I like to call a little "slice of life" book. The whole book is written as a series of letters (post-WWII) between Miss Juliet Ashton -- a.k.a. "Izzy Bickerstaff" -- and several members of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Guernsey is part of the Channel Islands, which are a group of islands located in the English Channel, closer actually to France than to England. The Channel Islands were the only part of Great Britain that was occupied by Germany during WWII -- and the occupation proved to be quite harsh. Through their letters, you learn about life in Guernsey during WWII -- including the reason for the founding of the literary society -- and the origin of the name! The correspondence with these quirky people in Guernsey changes Juliet's life, and it's enjoyable to watch the metamorphosis. Please let me know what you think!!
Yes, you should definitely read it, Michelle. It's charming, eccentric and heartwarming. P.S. - Judging from your profile picture, you are a dead ringer for Audrey Hepburn!
yes yes yes
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, I enjoyed the story. I didn't like reading all the letters.
Highly rec The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Heartwarming and positive as well as realistic.
