Well, that back cover copy pretty much tells you what the story’s about. I tend not to read them because I usually get books I’m asked to review or base the judgement off the cover and tagline. Lenny K somehow gets separated from his unit, though it’s very vague as to which unit that is. He gets captured by the Nazis. A strange woman tries to save him.
- Narration’s okay. His female voices are a tad painful. There are a lot of French accents, which makes sense because the bulk of the book is set in France just after the Normandy invasion.
- This is a framed story. Those have their uses, but I’m not seeing much reason to frame this. It would be a heck of a lot more suspenseful if it was told as it unfolded as opposed to memories. I am guessing there’s supposed to be deeper meanings like some war stories are lost to time, but the ending is just annoying.
- It’s a clean story that unfolds in 3 sections.
- The characters are likable enough. I’m not sure we know the boy’s name. Maybe it was said once.
- There are a LOT of coincidences.
- The action sections are decently well-described. The spy portions are okay.
- I would read more by the same author or narrator. Probably wouldn’t trip over myself to seek out either of ’em, but they’re decent.
It’s a decent story, but I’m not sure I’d call it a thriller. Spy tale, maybe. If you’re in the mood for something light about WWII, this might fit the bill.
