  • Exquisite!

    A beautiful haunting story of an abandoned son and daughter during the war time. The mystery of their Mother's disppearance and resurfacing, the truth and falsehoods of undergroung espionage and the tender moments that sew lives back together with astonishing regret kept me glued to the book. Michael Ondaatje is a master story teller with voices and thoughts that ring true. His meticulous research is transports the reader in to some fascinating and surprising places. Another winner for Mr. Ondaatje!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • War light by Michael Ondaatje

    Wow! Such a master of vocabulary, a real wizard of words. To say Ondaatje paints a masterpiece with his words would be an understatement. However, for me, this can take away from the storyline and be a bit heavy to read. The bits and pieces do come together in the end but the plot development was slow paced. If you want to enjoy a poetic portrait this book is for you, but if you want a page turner maybe not.

  • A complex and elegantly told novel

    This is a book that grabs you from the first paragraphs. It highlights a very intriguing time in British history. The characters are very strong and original.
