This is a bestseller and I enjoyed it.
I am fascinated by the WW2 in Europe setting.

It was an easy read but a tiny bit...chicklit...

The Invisible Bridge is way better on the same setting.

I read Sarah's Key too recently. I thought it was okay. It started off quite well and I liked the story told from Sarah's pov, but not so much in modern times.

I think it would have been a better book without the last several chapters.

I thought "Sarah's Key" a bit contrived and really didn't care for the modern story, either, NEH.

Two WWII books I thought were very good were "The Postmistress" by Sarah Blake and "Suite Francais" by Irene Nemirovsky. They're very different from each other and very different from "Sarah's Key."

I felt the same way about this book. Just sort of blah.
An incredible book in this setting is Marge Piercy's "Gone to Soldiers."
It's an older book. I have read it twice, once in my early 20's and again in the last few years and I loved it both times.
