Two words to describe this great book: total masterpiece.

Aug 03, 2011

10 characters trying to get through WWII in Europe. ."An epic melding of many narratives. Alternating chapters braid together ten unique and starkly harrowing stories..." Fabulous writing. I read this book in 1 sitting, approx 13 hours. Seriously, could not put it down. One of the best novels I've ever read.
