Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Store A 456 rating with almost 500000 ratings what is this sorcery 455 Full review on my Blog The Dacian She Wolf I don t know what is wrong with me but I really have a predilection when I read historical fiction The Second World WarEven in school I always thought that this was the most interesting part of the whole history we were taught maybe because our history teacher was a bit obsessed with that period too who knowsI want to start talking about this book The Nightingale by Kristin HannahI thought I was going to love this so much as I did with other WWII plot based books but after about 250 pages it was something about it that to me felt incomplete And I was fairly disappointed It felt exactly how it was but it didn t want to seem like a story of some French girls living in the WWII France a story narrated by an AmericanI am not being mean I am only being honest Here either the story was indeed a bit sugar coated as a historical fact or I don t know man it was maybe too much of the American enthusiastic positive thinking in it French suffered in the war then seeing the Germans drinking their French wine really but after all everyone suffered big time in that war including Germany if you believe it or not It was war no one got out of there looking richer or beautiful or smarter And this is an universally approved factNow living all this sensitive content of who is good and who is bad behind because it isn t the point here because in war everything changes and nothing is good or bad any let s move to the actual plot Because things changed dramatically after than half of boring and slow description and half actions In love we find out who we want to be in war we find out who we are I will say that I loved the whole idea of the 1995 perspective upon the events that happened from the summer of 1939 on It is a great way to construct a novel it gives it a bit of fluidity and a sense of emotional connection It shows that the same very person can live as many and as different lives in the real life It is a fascinating narrative perspective And giving the fact that at the end the whole idea comes with a twist it makes it even special It is heart felt Of course men always think war is about them I really loved this whole idea of putting in spotlight the fact that war is not only for men but also women have crucial roles in the whole process Women in war are like the link of a chain in a great big machine if there s no link there s no machine War is dangerous but even so those women back then chose to sneak around the so called law forced upon them look the danger in the eyes and smile And this is what makes them greater than they think they could beThose two sisters in the book Vianne and Isabelle are as different one from another as Mars and Neptun Vianne is sensitive taciturn happy to live a simple life she doesn t need to stand out in any way she s a survivor Isabelle on the other hand is wild and free and full of passion and has an enormous desire to help do big things she s a fighter What this war thought the two sisters is that they need to fight their own fight along with the others in order to get through and the ways to do it are dangerous and unimaginable almost impossibleThe book was a mixture of amazing persons with beautiful and courageous hearts put in the wrong place at the wrong time alongside wicked people with poisoned minds and hearts I can t even tell you how much I loved and respected Rachel de Champlain this amazingly strong woman who didn t back down and couldn t let anyone back her down And also what an amazing character Captain Wolfgang Beck was I mean he truly was the voice of so so many good Germans who purely had to fight for their country because they had to respect a vow they ve Made To The Homeland And to the homeland and themselves Beck really was put there to show the world that not all good guys are good guys and definitely not all bad ones are as bad as they are shown to be Black is the night when its sky is moonless but after all everyone knows the stars are still there But love has to be stronger than hate or there is no future for us This book teaches us to love It shows us the horrors of a loveless world and it reminds us to love each other any and every day Also as endnote or side note I couldn t help but wonder what if Mrs Hannah had a tiny bit of inspiration from the whole history of yet another famous nightingale The Lady with the Lamp Florence Nightingale Just a thought but coincidence or not the idea was after all very cleverly put togetherBook styled With tears still running down my cheeks I m writing this review I ve started this review several times and I don t think I ll be able to adeuately put into words the power in which this novel has moved me Truely a remarkable story that I literally beg everyone who loves historical fiction to read I will be gushing about this novel for some time to come It was the comparisons to All the Light We Cannot See that attracted me to The Nightingale Though both novels are set during WW2 the similarities for me stopped there All the Light is a magical novel electric with beautiful resounding prose and refined artistry The Nightingale is a novel motored essentially by clich and exaggeration Clich d writing isn t ust resorting continually to stock phrases though Hannah does this a lot it s also straining for tension through exaggeration to the point where dramatic tension degenerates into melodrama No surprise that clich d phrases often perform a task of exaggeration She was scared to death She couldn t believe her eyes The Nightingale reads like YA fantasy fiction Everything is to death She couldn t believe her eyes The Nightingale reads like YA fantasy fiction Everything is exaggerated so that WW2 is perceived as a kind of post nuclear holocaust world where this one event utterly eclipses the world we live in The perspective of the novel is one of hindsight as if all the characters are experiencing not the daily hardships of the war but the totality of all WW2 s horrors It s like her research consisted of otting down every single horror story and deprivation and shoe horning them all into her story It s mostly set in a small town in the middle of France yet this small town is swarming with German soldiers Gestapo SS Jews bomb damage as if the entire war is centred there I was only surprised Hitler and Eva Braun didn t have a holiday home there as well The two main characters are loaded with the ordeals accomplishments of an entire circuit of resistance members Isabelle is every SOE heroine rolled into one and Vianne is a kind of female Schindler Plausibility is often sacrificed to thrills and spills In the space of three pages a Jewish woman is told the Nazis will arrive at her house the next morning Three paragraphs later or two hours later she has magically acuired false identity papers Three paragraphs later she is about to cross through a peaceful checkpoint when inexplicably the German guard begins machine gunning everyone as if he got bored ust checking papers He even takes the trouble to shoot the woman s nine year old child in the back This is all passed off without explanation as if it were a normal wartime incident The big surprise though is that the ending is genuinely moving and really well managed Hence all the gushing reviews Basically to enjoy this you need to anaesthetize your critical faculties That done I guess there s enjoyment to be had because Hannah is a decent storyteller and is good at developing human relationships No doubt it ll soon be a Hollywood film I really tried you guys There was even a 20% period when my standards were reduced so low from the previous 70% that I thought maybe maybe 2 But the last 10% was offensive Ye.

And luxury that I know so many of us naturally take for granted They are precious This book reminded me of that Rating 5 STARS Standalone novel For those of you who want to know who lives and who dies view spoiler Antoine survives the war and returns home to his beloved wife Vianne and daughter Sophie who both also made it They rebuild their family and eventually begin a new life together in America although you do not see this in detail it is implied Isabelle s rebellious nature and choice to risk her life to save others eventually gets her caught towards the end of the book She is beaten almost to death and thrown into a camp She survives this only barely When the war is over she returns home and is reunited with her love Gaetan She dies in his arms without regrets for the choices that led her there The ending of the book is a hugely emotional reunion in 1995 for the survivors of the war hide spoiler 45 stars I didn t mind that the story was slow because I thoroughly enjoyed the writing and was engaged throughout the book Hannah writes so descriptively that it made me enjoy the ourney and really painted the atmosphere of France Each line was rich in detail and you could tell had been researched And yes I m one of the many people who cried reading the ending lolWhat would have made me fully embrace the book is if both romances had been developed better and the characterization had been stronger Isabelle still felt like a caricature of a rebellious girl to me with no other ualities even though she was such a badass in the end I also think if the book is going to focus on women during WW2 Hannah could have emphasized the sister relationship better instead of making them disjointed for most of the story even if ust thinking about the other sister or showing memories of them throughout the book Since the romance wasn t that well developed we could have used that time for the sister relationship instead to really hone in on the theme and purpose of this book Nonetheless I still enjoyed this book and its beautiful writing I will say though that I cried much harder in All the Light We Cannot See and Lovely War so maybe that s why I hesitate to fully give it 5 stars because I know I am capable of tears So many 4 5 star reviews here but I m afraid I ust thought this WWII historical novel was okay There are so many novels about this time period and I didn t think this one rose above the heap The last one to do that for me was Kate Atkinson s Life After Life and this STFU, Parents: The Jaw-Dropping, Self-Indulgent, and Occasionally Rage-Inducing World of Parent Overshare just can t even compare to that or to David Gillham s City of WomenThere s some nice detail about the home front in France which I have read less about than the English home front And there are some exciting scenes featuring the French resistance s efforts to get downed pilots out of France But there are also some small but annoying anachronisms antibiotics were not really available until after the war Germans didn t put up signs saying people would be put in concentration camps Everything seemed very predictable a hiding place in the barn is introduced youust know it s going to figure in hiding Jews later A kind Nazi is featured as well as a sadistic one And the last uarter of the book races through torture and concentration camps and death marches in a way I found tedious and unenlightening Then there is what is supposed to be a twist at the end but I felt like I saw it comingSo if you really really love WWII historicals this might be worth your time but I ve read better from Kristin Hannah and much better about WWII I ve been told by so many people that I need to read this book It gets so much hype that I thought there was absolutely NO way it would live up to it But it did than that It surpassed it My favourite books is a pretty exclusive list and it usually takes me a while to decide whether a book fits that list or not but this was an instant favourite I absolutely adored it Even ust thinking about it now I am fighting back tears because this was such a beautiful and vivid story I felt like I was with these characters through all of their terrible experiences and I ust wanted to shelter them from it all The women in particular the sisters were absolutely inspirational They showed incredible strength in this terrible time and I loved seeing how women contributed to the war This was ust a story that really resonated with me It has a special place in my heart for it was truly beautiful If you like WWII me It has a special place in my heart for it was truly beautiful If you like WWII fiction or even if you don t I encourage you to try this book out I know I m going to be encouraging basically everyone I know to read it Oh for heaven s sake Isabelle Paris is overrun The Nazis control the city What is an eighteen year old girl to do about all of that What indeedI really didn t know what to expect going into The Nightingale Given the uote about love and war in the blurb I kind of thought it might be an historical romance set during the Second World War like the world really needs another The Bronze Horseman but it turned out to be so much than thatThere are love stories in The Nightingale but that s not really what the book is about It s about women in wartime and it s an interesting moving portrait of the Nazi occupation of France and what this meant for all the wives daughters and widows left behind We re told in the book that men always assume war is about them it s true so this is the untold Story Of The Home of the home These are the women who are forced to house Nazi soldiers the women who are manipulated into betraying their friends the women who wish they could fight for their country and the women who secretly do The main story is about two very different sisters Vianne and Isabelle who are trying to survive during wartime Vianne is older and misses her husband who is in a Nazi war camp she must deal with her rebellious younger sister and the Nazi soldier living in her home whilst also making sure her daughter doesn t starve Isabelle is one of those borderline insufferable characters that also inspires affection She reminds me of fiery annoying but ultimately lovable heroines like Scarlett O Hara from Gone with the Wind and Kitty from The Painted Veil The best thing about her though is her growth She starts out a naive 18 year old who falls in love with handsome young men instantly and she later grows into someone wiser I loved the way her characterization was handledOn that note about falling in love this book throws up a number of red herrings When Isabelle instantly falls for Gaetan I was rolling my eyes and thinking oh great It s that kind of book But don t worry that isn t the story being told here and Isabelle has a lot to learn It s a multilayered book and none of the relationships are straight forwardAnd it s also incredibly sad and moving in parts as a book about war generally is Children in wartime are forced to grow up so fast in order to survive Take for example this exchange between Vianne and her daughter Vianne cupped Sophie s thin face in her hands Sarah died last night she said gently Died She wasn t sick Vianne steeled herself It happens that way sometimes God takes you unexpectedly She s gone to Heaven To be with her grandm re and yours Sophie pulled away got to her feet backed away Do you think I m stupid Wh what do you mean She s Jewish Vianne hated what She Saw In Her Daughter saw in her daughter eyes right now There was nothing young in her gaze no innocence no na vet no hope You really get a sense of how the Nazis took over the lives of the French people How it was subtle and manipulative built on fear They gradually caused divisions within communities scaring people into betraying their friends It wasn t a perfect book if there is such a creature There were some slow parts that could have been shortened or edited out all together And I wish the author hadn t used a bunch of American terms and measurements For example a cup measurement is not used in Franc.

FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED 5 STARS HOLY WOW This book was absolutely epic A sweeping breathtaking ourney that captivated me from the first page with the strength and beauty of the writing Truly an unforgettable story The Nightingale has a 485 rating average on which is HUGE and what that basically means is that practically everyone who is reading it is loving it And I m now adding my own 5 STAR rating to that list because this book owned my heart The ending was so powerful that I read the last 10 pages with tears pouring down my face and days after finishing my read I still can t stop thinking about itI will say upfront though that this book was a little different than the kinds I usually read and review though because it wasn t solely focused on a love story even though there were two love stories within itWhile men endure great hardship during war it affects everyone This is the often unspoken story of women s war Mothers daughter sisters wives this is the story of their strength endurance sacrifice and courage during the darkest part of their lives So many of them didn t Mexican Hooker just wait for their men to return but took many grave risks to save as many other lives as they couldWe begin the story in 1995 with an old woman towards the end of her life moving out of her house into a retirement home Without much of a future ahead of her she begins to look backward at her past taking us with her through her life story beginning in France 1939 right before the war changed her peaceful lifeThe flash back segments of the book are largely focused on two sisters the older Vianne the rule follower and the younger Isabelle the rebel Vianne s idealic life in the countryside with her husband Antoine who she d been in love with since she was fourteen and their young daughter Sophie was changed when he was to be mobilized and called to duty to fight in WW2 The postman became a soldier overnight and the man she loved was sent to the front leaving her behind not knowing what the future would bring He stood up slowly and took her in his arms She wanted to bottle how safe she felt in this moment so she could drink of it later when loneliness and fear left her parched I love you he said against her lips I love you too she said but the words that always seemed so big felt small now What was love when put up against war Months into her husband s deployment with no word still from him and with their already dire situation getting worse and worse after France surrendered to Germany Vianne and Sophie s lives are once again changed when a young German officer reuisitions their home making it his own Faced with one hardship after another they both do everything they can to survive and pray for Antoine s safe return You needn t worry Madame he said We have been admonished to act as gentlemen My mother would demand the same and in truth she scares me than my general It was such an ordinary remark that Vianne was taken abackShe had no idea how to respond to this stranger who dressed like the enemy and looked like a young man she might have met at churchHe remained where he was a respectful distance from her I apologize for any inconvenience Madame My husband will be home soon We all hope to be home soon Miles away Vianne s younger sister Isabelle attends a sort of finishing school for French woman and hates every single moment of it Her outspoken and rebellious nature unwilling to bow to their rules When the war comes though she makes her way through the wilderness to Paris Her beloved city was like a once beautiful courtesan grown old and thin weary abandoned by her lovers In less than a year this magnificent city had been stripped of its essence by the endless clatter of Germanackboots on the streets and disfigured by swastikas that flew from every monument Refusing to accept France s surrender and despite her sister s pleading to stay uiet and safe she follows her heart and meets a young man named Gaetan She falls in love with him and his belief that the French can fight the Nazis from within France But when things take an unexpected turn she decides to take matters into her own hands regardless of what anyone tells her she can t do and The League for the Suppression of Celery joins an underground group The Resistance that risks their lives to make a difference and help save as many others as they can On this cool October morning her life would change From the morning she boarded this train she would no longer be the girl in the bookshop From now on she was Juliette Gervaise code name the Nightingale You know that feeling when a book is so absorbing that youust want to cancel all your plans so you can keep reading it and even when you can t read it you re thinking about it Yeah that was me with this book Once I started reading I could barely put it down until I d reached the last pageAs the past and present storylines began to entwine these shivers ran down me as certain reveals were brought into the light Real shivers Tears would spring to my eyes with even the simplest of things but ones that had such a hugely powerful impact on the story A letter from Paris BOOM Tears Please Just say strong and be there for me when the time comes for me to leave this cage Because of you I can survive I hope that you can find strength in me too V That because of me you will find a way to be strong Hold my daughter tightly tonight and tell her that somewhere far away her papa is thinking of her And tell her I will returnI love you This book is honest in portraying the events that occurred to these characters but not overly graphic It doesn t need to be The things that happen and they way they are told are so powerful that you FEEL them There are some scenes though that are hard to read because they are uite painful and I ll warn that there may be triggers for some people but I ll warn that there may be triggers for some people but again this is a story that takes place during a brutal war There s everything you can expect from such a story brutal firefights prison camps beatings near starvation sacrifice but there is also hope resilience survival As I neared the end of the book during the last few pages tears began to pour down my face It was achingly beautifulMany of you will be wondering if there is a happy ending I don t want to give things away but I want you to know that I was completely okay with this ending It s naturally not all sunshine and roses how can it be with such a setting But my gut feeling tells me that even hard core romance fans will still love this book I was moved to tears several times but in many ways my heart was healed I love you Antoine Mariac and I expect you to come home to me Kristin Hannah s writing is some of the best I ve ever read It s extraordinarily vivid and evocative This was my first book by her read It s extraordinarily vivid and evocative This was my first book by her I felt like I was right there with these characters not only were their emotions so strongly conveyed but the picture of their surroundings came to life before my eyesI have searched for years without luck for a book that could even come close to comparing to my all time favorite book The Bronze Horseman into here This book however is the closest I ve ever come to one that captured a similar feeling The story is vastly different while The Bronze Horseman completely revolved around one love story that was the driving force behind the entire trilogy The Nightingale was focused on two sisters and their experiences surviving the war while the sisters each had their own love stories it was their personal The Thirteen-Gun Salute journeys that this book was focused on I also found TBH to generally be emotional than TN So it s not of course a direct parallel But I will say that if you re a fan of TBH and if like me you ve been searching for years for a similar book then you absolutely must read thisThis was honestly one of the most powerful stories I ve read It will stay in my heart I know this for a fact More than anything what I take away from it is gratitude gratitude for every single freedom.
