Loved this. Great UF/PNR!
I loved this book. I picked this up a couple of months ago, devoured it, read all sorts of articles about synesthesia, raved about it to my friends, and then promptly forgot all major details. Oh, and I also forgot to review it on Goodreads. So, um. I have nothing much to say except this is a nice book, but the plot details don't really stick with you. Except that painting of her grandfather sure seemed nice. Sorry. I fail as a reviewer.
The best thing about this book was the acupuncture. I don't read alot of fiction where I come across a pro-acupuncture stance. But I should! Othewise I couldn't tell if the main character was completely batty or what. And in the end the author didn't get me to care one way or the other.
A hilarious and fun read. I especially enjoyed Dumbledore's notes at the end. :)
Was worth the wait to see what Gabriel and Chiara would do next...and how he would be pulled out of retirement again.
This was a wonderful story. From Anna's love affair w/ the Jewish doctor, her crazy father & her life in general & the relationship w/ her daughter Trudy. The baker, who without her, Anna would not have survived. You also get insight to the local towns people in Germany & how tough it was on the locals, as well. Anna's relationship w/ the Nazi is not easy to describe, but I believe she grew to love him & at 1 point in the story, there is some explanation in correlation to the title. This was a well written wonderful book.
