Some history, some thriller, some romance.
Very disappointing compared to Apple Tree Yard. Beautifully narated though. Too much violence and tragidy.

I very much wanted to like this book, but it missed the mark for me with everything feeling a bit off, slightly contrived, and lacking subtlety. I do wonder, however, how much this has to do with the narration. Normally I feel I can separate the story from the narrator, but in this case I think the narration, which seemed cheesy, especially in the protagonist's dialogue, could've tinged the whole experience.
I'm sure some others will like it, but a disappointment to me.
