Eğer bulabilirseniz okumaya değer. Bir uşak hakkında seksi bir hikaye. Ayrıca Into the Woods, bonus müzikal referanslar içerir.
i enjoyed it - lots of new information provided... i like to see the characters expanded and revisited. very sad to lose characters you like, though... umbridge was a piece of work, never failing to outdo herself at each opportunity. fred and george kept me giggling, too :)
The history behind this novel is so compelling (horrible, but everyone should know about French complicity in rounding up Jews in WWII) but the story was just not all that well written, and pretty melodramatic. Lots of sentences like "She was stunned. She didn't know how to feel." Yes. Okay. Whatever. I did like the interweaving of the two stories in the book. I heard Kristin Scott Thomas on Fresh Air recently--she's apparently going to play the lead in the film version, and I'd watch her do just about anything, so we'll see how it translates--may be one of those rare books that's actually better on the screen. As long as there aren't awful voiceovers...
Really enjoyed this book...suspenseful, moving, involving and one of those page-turners about which you say you'll read one more chapter, then keep going, even though it's really late!
