I wasn't sure that this was my kind of book but within a couple of minutes was completely engrossed.
Well read, superb plot and little pockets of humour here and there.
Very sad the story has ended.

A must read!!! The narrator does the book so much justice! I’m now off to listen to it again!
Saying that I loved the book would be an understatement.
I went into the book knowing absolutely nothing about it except that it was all in letters. And I think that was a great thing. I loved discovering every bit.
What I really liked and appreciated about the writing was how it managed to actually make me laugh out loud at moments where it was funny. I usually don't find written comedy or literature funny. (So maybe since this was an audio book I found it so funny) But I enjoyed the lighter moments of the book immensely.
The emotions in the book are so subtle and not overbearing which is quite often a spot of worry for me when I reading fiction. The author has displayed them beautifully. And the only reason I could hold back myself from crying at few instances was cause I was listening to the book on a bus and didn't want people to see me crying (They definitely saw me smiling and laughing)
Another thing that stood out was the way author has written about World War II, I wouldn't call it the best description or writing about the WWII but in its limited scope, the author has done justice I feel.
Almost all the characters were well written and I adored most of them. I want to read more about some of them.
And last but not the least, the book makes me want to visit Guernsey.
I'm so glad I came across this book and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to read a nice, light hearted, feel good book.
