Review: THE ABSOLUTIST by John Boyne

WildmooBooks recently read and reviewed The Absolutist by John Boyne for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s a sample:

I love everything about this novel–the characters, the story, the time period, the writing style. It’s an epic World War I story that flows back and forth in time from 1919 to 1916, with a concluding chapter set in 1979. It’s a tragic love story unlike any other that I’ve read, yet it rings so absolutely true. And when I say ‘love story’ I do not mean ‘romance’ so don’t let that put you off.

Read the full review.
