ON BOOKS ~ Location = France


raidergirl3 asks - It's Tuesday, where is reading taking you?

I am one of many refugees fleeing Paris as the Germans advance through the countryside of France during WWII. At times I am a bored yet patriotic teenager running off to join the soldiers and fight. Other times I am a rich elitist horrified to be stuck with the unfortunate masses. And there are times where I am just trying to keep track of my family. This book has me seeing many points of view from a variety of characters.

(Suite Francaise - I. Nemirovsky, fiction) - Read a Teaser in the post above...

I am so glad you found your way to this book! Once you finish it, you will find that it stays with you for awhile!

I'd like to read it, but it's a war book...about the Houlocast...It's like pulling a bandaid, because you know it is going to hurt so why would I want to do that on purpose? I never could pull a bandaid off.

I'm sure I will eventually read it.

A book that gives you many points of view appeals to me but I don't know about the war thing. I'll wait to see what you think.

I've been wanting to read this one. I liked both your teaser and your where are you.

I thought it was a good book.

I just finished a book called "To Love a Gentle Stranger", set in Hawaii. Seeing as I'm on spring break anyway, it was torture, lol!
