  • Heart-warming!

    This book was a great read. I wanted to go to the island and meet all the characters myself! I thought it ended a bit abruptly but maybe only because I didn’t want it to end!

  • An excellent read

    I loved the way the author told the story by way of letters. Usually this can be a bit tiresome but Mary Ann (and Annie) did it exceptionally well. I love historical fiction and this was right up my alley, as well as the fact I am in a bookclub myself. Although we share lots of things, it cannot compare to the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Sad to see it end

    This is a magical book. It is full of amazing, endearing and quirky characters, revealed to us through their letter writing. It is a wonderfully innovative way of letting us into the difficult and dark times endured by the Guernsey islanders in a way that is not chronologically factual text, written in the historian's third person voice. Instead, we have Juliet who, having established herself as a writer in the form of wartime Izzy, gathers the characters who inhabit this little enclave on Guernsey and makes them people we would like to know through the letters in Part 1. Part 2 is even better as those characters are no longer Juliet's yet to be met friends but are the people whose friendships she enjoys firsthand. All the while we learn more and more of the hardships the islanders faced and the bravery they showed in the face of such evil through the vignettes in Juliet's letters as she meets more and more of the islanders. Perhaps the most poignant moment in the book is finally finding out what is in Kit's box. Knowing her story makes this such a special moment. I loved reading this book and can only hope the film does it justice.

    Thanks for your feedback!
