RATING: 3 ***

Follow Bill and Maggie in London 2010 as they explore the events of August 15th 1939. When at the brink of World War II, an English plane crashed and sunk in Danish waters. Five deaths were reported: two Standard Oil of New Jersey employees, a German Corporate Lawyer, an English member of Parliament, and a crew member for the airline. Bill and Maggie find a conceivable version of the events.

REVIEW:

When I first started reading this book, I felt like the style was hard to read.  This book is only 326 pages, but it felt very long, possibly due to the narrative style.  The entire book was a good read in its entirety if you can manage to get through it.  It was very non-fiction-y and fact filled, which is another thing that I did not enjoy, as this is not the type of book I normally read.  (I dislike almost all nonfiction.)  This book is more research with a story in-between.  That being said, the plot was very good, and well-explained.  I don’t want to spoil the ending, but if you make it to the end it makes reading this long and super documented book worthwhile.   The fictional twist in the book was a good addition; I would not have liked any of the book without those fictional characters.  You do feel the passion the author has when writing this.  I think she researched it for years!

THE VERDICT:

I would recommend this book to War Buffs and that’s about it.  I think most people will have a hard time reading this and I would have given up after a few chapters, if I wasn’t reviewing it.
