The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

TGLAPPPS was the pick of the month for my book club. It is an interesting novel, written is the epistolary style. This has never been my favorite. For me, this is just distracting from the story. And this is a good story. I just had a hard time finishing it.

TGLAPPPS tells the story of the aforementioned book club, and how it developed on the British island of Guernsey during its occupation by the Germans in world War II. The story actually takes place in the year following the war, as Guernsey emerges from its enforced isolation from England.

It has been a best seller, and I can see why.  The characters are interesting, but not really well-developed. I suspect there is a sequel in the works, and we will learn more about them.

TGLAPPPS is a good book, but just not my cup of tea.
