livre d'or

Book: Birds without wings

Author: Louis de Bernières

Details: (c) Louis de Bernières 2004; Pub Secker & Warburg 2004; ISBN 0-436-20549-1

Verdict: Birds without wings has moments, but is rambly and preachy more of the time than it's successful.

Reasons for reading it: I enjoyed Captain Corelli's Mandolin.

How it came into my hands: Libary.

hatam_soferet makes the point a lot better in about 200 words. Please read her post if you are Jewish, and read it if you consider yourself a moral person. In fact, even if you read nothing else on LJ all month, read that post. Thank you, hatam_soferet.
