three-bullet book review

Three-Bullet Book Review: Charlotte Gray by Sebastian Faulks (1999)

  • combines several of war literature's sub-genres: action, romance, espionage, trauma
  • a subplot that bravely follows two little boys into the Holocaust left me sobbing
  • subtle exploration of the relationship between the English and the French


Be forewarned that war literature was my primary academic thing and remains an area of immense personal and intellectual interest. That said, this is a very good read that anyone interested in war novels and/or spy novels could enjoy.
