As I mentioned in a status update, I resisted this one a bit: sometimes I'm a bit leery of books that have a lot of "this is the best book ever" reviews attached to them. Also, it's set in WWII, and I didn't think I'd be all that interested in books from that era. I'm so glad I grabbed this at the library because it was so good. Well-written, gripping, unusual, funny, sad, exciting, and yes, a bit of a tearjerker, although my tears didn't come right away. I was standing in the shower after finishing it and just started to bawl.The twists are well done, and now that I know how it turns out, I should probably go back and reread to pick up on everything I missed the first time through, because I think it was all there, I just didn't know what I was looking at.Wonderful book, well-deserving of the hype and accolades it is receiving. One of the best books I've read this year, for sure.
