It’s All About Me said:

This wasn’t a page-turner and I found some sections difficult to get through. But it’s a book worth reading because it shows part of history and it does so in a beautiful and human way.

Sandy from You’ve GOTTA read this! recently posted a review of Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky.  Here’s a snippet:

Suite Francaise is one of those rare books where I actually experienced trepidation in reviewing it. I’m not really sure my pedestrian use of the English language can do it justice. A friend of mine, John Cole, very highly recommended it to me, knowing my interest in WWII stories are above the norm. (My husband was raised in Communist Poland, and his parents and grandparents were intimately involved with the Solidarity movement, WWII and WWI.) But this isn’t just a book about WWII. It probably was THE first book about WWII.

suite-francaiseCarol from Magistra Mater recently posted a review of Suite Francasise by Irene Nemirovsky.  Here’s a snippet:

Irène Némirovsky’s tragic story makes this a bittersweet read.  She lived through the German invasion and occupation of France, writing these two novellas as the events were current. She died in Auschwitz in 1942.  Her daughters rescued her manuscript and left it, untouched,  in a suitcase for 60+ years.  The English translation was published in 2006.  This is very likely the first WWII fiction written.
