  1. This isn t just chick lit or young adult, it s BAD chick lit and young adult I ve read extensively about this era, nonfiction and also fiction, some great All the Light We Cannot See, Winds of War War and Remembrance and some not so great but perfectly passable I m no book snob Not so far into this I was in disbelief that it was a bestseller and written by an educated person Every single character is a ridiculous cliche the brooding but hunky Nazi, the mysterious French underground smuggler woma [...]


  2. It pains me to accept that Kristin Hannah s writing style and I just don t mix Historical fiction LOVE Character driven stories LOVE Thus, you would think her stories would be right in my wheelhouse Wrong Just like The Winter Garden, I DNF d The Nightingale at around 20% Why I despise the characters DESPISE THEM Much of the tension between the characters, which drives the whole story, could easily be resolved with a simple adult conversation Oh, the whininess though The internal dialogue and sub [...]


  3. At the time I am writing this review there were over 37,000 reviews of this book Over 80% were five stars Obviously I m in a minority in giving this book a bad review In such a vast sea of reviews, I expect that my review will also sink like a stone to lie on the seabed unnoticed.This novel is set in France during WWII The plot centers around the French Resistance and the persecution of the Jews in France.The author doesn t seem to know much of the history of the French Resistance For example, t [...]


  4. A novel with didactic pretensions, full of factual errors, cliches, and sentimental pathos I have read countless accounts, as well as fictions on the subject of the Second World War and its effects on the occupied people I am old enough to have been myself a part of that moment in European history This is by far the most irritatingly inept attempt at giving a taste of everyday life or exceptional behavior during that moment among civil society Worst of all, perhaps, is the exploitation of the su [...]


  5. Almost 36,000 reviews and 86 percent are five stars What s THAT about, I thought So I read the book, and now I know what the raves are all about This book is one of the best, if not the best book I have ever read Hannah writes like an angel The book isn t a fast read, at least not for me, because I would go back and reread a sentence just to enjoy the mastery with which it was written Hannah s style doesn t try to be high literature, but the result is She writes beautiful scenery and background, [...]


  6. Amateur novellist tells tear jerker.I expected so much The premise for the story was promising the role of women during WWII France But the author quickly fell into clich s The characters have no depth whatsoever.The sub themes have been so overused that it clearly shows a lack of imagination the idealist young girl who longs for love and approval from her father, PTSD from WWI, first love, sibling rivalry Mix it all in, give it a good shake and voil best seller The plot is O.K but the writing i [...]


  7. The Nightingale is the story of two sisters caught up in occupied France during the second world war Both have remarkable stories to tell In part the book is a frame narrative with one sister reflecting back forty years from 1995 The identity of the narrator i.e which sister is not revealed until toward the end of the novel, although it is fairly obvious from the third chapter.The research for the book is lamentable There are glaring historical, cultural and geographical inaccuracies that detrac [...]


  8. A compelling yarn ruined by many factual mistakes Where s the editor or researcher There were references to the smell of hay in April in France wrong season , hummingbirds on roses in a French garden hummingbirds don t live in France and don t feed on roses , misspelt German words, plenty of typos in English.It just didn t at all evoke France continental Europe I m Swiss.The success of this book flies in the face of the authors of historical novels who meticulously research their field.
