Review: THE SANDCASTLE GIRLS by Chris Bohjalian

Book Snob has reviewed The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s an excerpt:

Bohjalian has written a book that is difficult to read at times as he doesn’t hold back the horror of genocide during World War I.  His book is a necessary introduction to “The Slaughter you know next to nothing about.”  His characters are human, flawed, and believable.  The book is timely as the hundred year anniversary approaches but also because of the political unrest and problems gripping the people of Syria right now.
