Review: BIRDSONG by Sebastian Faulks

Page Plucker recently read and reviewed Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s an excerpt:

As a romance, Birdsong didn’t quite hit the mark for me. Stephen and Isabelle’s relationship is all passion and no substance, and there were times I couldn’t understand Isabelle’s motivation for acting as she did. It’s impossible to say more without giving away much of the plot, but I did find these parts of the book a little unsatisfying. While we’re on the subject of romance, there are some very graphic sex scenes in the novel, but they’re done well and serve to illustrate how Stephen and Isabelle got so hopelessly wrapped up in each other.
