  1. agreed FF. I wonder if its publishers who are fixated it now, they seem to publishing lots of WWII stuff right now

  2. The book needs better editing. There are mistakes. The most annoying thing is the language, modern expressions which weren’t in use at the time are littered through the book. At one point Ruby tells someone to F off. This wasn’t language used at this time or place. Neither was sh**. The end piece is slow and repetitive and not really worth reading. It contains a glowing reference to the ability of the English to improvise as if the other 3 nations of the UK are not able in this respect.

  3. I never noticed the use of modern-day slang in this book, but that’s a good point. It didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the novel overall.
