    Oh, for heaven s sake, Isabelle Paris is overrun The Nazis control the city What is an eighteen year old girl to do about all of that What, indeed.I really didn t know what to expect going into The Nightingale Given the quote about love and war in the blurb, I kind of thought it might be an historical romance set during the Second World War like the world really needs another The Bronze Horseman but it turned out to be so much than that.There are love stories in The Nightingale, but that s not [...]

    It was the comparisons to All the Light We Cannot See that attracted me to The Nightingale Though both novels are set during WW2 the similarities for me stopped there All the Light is a magical novel electric with beautiful resounding prose and refined artistry The Nightingale is a novel motored essentially by clich and exaggeration Clich d writing isn t just resorting continually to stock phrases though Hannah does this a lot it s also straining for tension through exaggeration to the point whe [...]


    With tears still running down my cheeks I m writing this review I ve started this review several times and I don t think I ll be able to adequately put into words the power in which this novel has moved me Truely a remarkable story that I, literally, beg everyone who loves historical fiction to read I will be gushing about this novel for some time to come.

    I ve been told by so many people that I need to read this book It gets so much hype that I thought there was absolutely NO way it would live up to it But it did than that It surpassed it My favourite books is a pretty exclusive list and it usually takes me a while to decide whether a book fits that list or not but this was an instant favourite I absolutely adored it Even just thinking about it now I am fighting back tears because this was such a beautiful and vivid story I felt like I was with [...]


    So many 4 5 star reviews here, but I m afraid I just thought this WWII historical novel was okay There are so many novels about this time period and I didn t think this one rose above the heap The last one to do that for me was Kate Atkinson s Life After Life and this just can t even compare to that or to David Gillham s City of Women.There s some nice detail about the home front in France, which I have read less about than the English home front And there are some exciting scenes featuring the [...]

    FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED 5 STARS HOLY WOW This book was absolutely epic A sweeping, breathtaking journey that captivated me from the first page with the strength and beauty of the writing Truly an unforgettable story The Nightingale has a 4.8 5 rating average on which is HUGE and what that basically means is that practically everyone who is reading it is loving it And I m now adding my own 5 STAR rating to that list because this book owned my heart The ending was so powerful that I read the last 1 [...]

    I m not sure what I can say about this book that hasn t already been said, but the quality and sheer excellence to this story blew my mind I m not typically a fan of historical fiction, which is likely why I ve avoided it for so long, but once this was described to me as historical fiction light I felt it was safe to take a gamble on it When we decided for this to be the Suspenseful Clues and Thrilling Reviews September book choice, I was nervous because WHAT IF I HATED THIS BELOVED BOOK Clearly [...]


    For me this was a fusion of sub literary chick lit and WWII fiction in that it was too cliche and melodramatic much of the time I thought the female perspective of occupied France and the tales of the resistance as well as the opposing sisters perspectives were generally good ideas but the whole thing lacked in the execution.The tone of the book doesn t feel authentic to the time period and there are numerous unbelievable incidents and interactions The historical facts are covered but the atmosp [...]


    I don t even know where to start this review I am typing it through teary eyes, so I will keep it simple Insert tissues here My pick for Vianne when this becomes a movie is Naomi Watts or Kate Winslet and for Isabella is Julianne Hough or Amanda Seyfried Let s see if Hollywood takes my suggestion This WW2 novel was so beautifully written This war was a time of bitter hatred and in this story Kristin Hannah brings to life love, survival, bitterness, strength, and persistence Vianne and Isabelle a [...]


    I m late to the partyBut here goes The Nightingale begins with an unnamed elderly woman as the narrator She is living in Oregon, and the year is 1995 Her son is helping her move she is downsizing her possessions She insists that she must bring her old large trunk that she kept stored in the attic In the truck contains past memories There is a WW11 identity card of a young French women, named Juliette Gervaise As the story transports to France, 1939, we are wondering about Juliette Gervaise and t [...]


    My nightingale, I got you home This review contains spoilers.I honestly didn t expect to like The Nightingale as much as I did.The premise of the book intrigued me I ve been really into historical fiction lately This story follows two sisters, Vianne and Isabelle, during World War II and their hardships trying to survive My heart broke for each sister as I read their stories full of loss and pain And I loved the shifting point of view that allowed me to see inside each character s head But one o [...]

    1.5 stars Oh, the IRONY You might have never heard of it, but in 1981 French author R gine Deforges released a book called La bicyclette bleue, 1939 1942 part of a trilogy , which related the story of two sisters during WWII in France L a, the outspoken, rebel and reckless one, who joins the Resistance after fleeing from the invasion of Paris and Fran oise, the older, who has to live under the same roof of a SS during the Occupation RING A BELL This novel, many times bestseller in France, borrow [...]


    A moving, strong and inspiring tale of survival, love, and female heroism during World War II.Memoir and historical fictions are genres that I rarely visit However, ever since last year after I finished reading the inspiring memoir by Yeonmi Park, I decided to at least read one book that revolves around war or its kind to remind myself to always be grateful For that, The Nightingale is my pick of the year, and it ended up being one I will remember If I have learned anything in this long life of [...]

    I almost didn t read this book and it would have been my loss if I didn t, because I would have missed out on knowing Isabel and Vianne , and the story of their indescribable bravery and volition to save lives in their roles in the French Resistance during WWII Oh I know this is a work of fiction and these two women are characters in a novel But I also know as history tells us there were real men and women risking their lives doing the very same things Isabel and Vianne did A recent article tell [...]


    The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah may be my favorite novel of 2015 and yes, I realize it s only February It s just that good The setting is World War II, Nazi occupied France The story follows two sisters, Vianne and Isabelle, and how they each respond in times of great challenge Their parallel stories are as different as their personalities, but are just as suspenseful, complicated, and emotional Although The Nightingale is considered fiction, it is firmly planted in well researched truth Isabe [...]


    Kristin Hannah is a pro in the chick lit genre, and I applaud her efforts to break into historical fiction with The Nightingale Unfortunately, I cannot say that I loved the result When I read historical fiction in a war setting, I expect a certain rawness that just wasn t delivered here Yes, she included historically accurate descriptions of carnage, but the tone was destroyed with a barrage of trite elements The two main characters happen to be beautiful, irresistible, young sisters with daddy [...]

    This book wrecked me Let me say that again, It WRECKED me I have never cried so hard while reading a book It was beyond amazing, beyond moving and it s a story I will never forget I m sure you ve heard of this book It s been hyped ever since it came out will amazing reason I ve stayed away from it because of the hype because I m not the biggest fan of historical fiction but I was so glad to be proved wrong on both accounts This is a book that will grip you from the minute you start it and will n [...]


    I feel like I went on the journey with these characters, that I lived these years with them It s a story I won t soon forget and definitely one that I hope to revisit in the future An absolutely stunning book that I can t recommend highly enough 5 stars


    I really tried, you guys There was even a 20% period when my standards were reduced so low from the previous 70%, that I thought maybe, maybe 2 But the last 10% was offensive Yes, I said offensive Review later And by review, I mean bitch rant fest People keep asking me how I didn t like this book Honestly, I want to ask them how they did.Never have I ever read a book by such a clueless, air headed author.And I actually don t even mean that to be mean, or to pick on KH It s just that quite frankl [...]


    3.5 StarsI read this now rather than maybe sometime in the future because a friend thank you, Jennifer mentioned in her recent review that they were making a movie out of this book I enjoyed this, but it would be inaccurate for me to say I loved it I just never really believed in the characters, I never felt they were authentic or real As a result, all of Isabel s behavior and actions felt created for the purpose of manipulation, and I never really could shake that feeling for long enough to all [...]


    In love we find out who we want to be in war we find out who we are This is a story that will stay with me for a long time to come I think most people would agree, the best kind of books are those that evoke strong emotions and make you feel Among my favorites are books that made me think about life, fall in love or ripped me to pieces and left me in tears THE NIGHTINGALE managed to do all of those things.I ve always had a fascination with World War II stories and with anything taking place duri [...]


    4.5 to 5 stars This is a very complete book I hope that makes sense when I say it I was satisfied with the entire experience.Emotional and at times nerve wracking Love and hope mixed with fear and suffering Hard choices that are unavoidable, easy choices that come with great risk This book is a historical fiction roller coaster ride.Even if you are not into historical fiction or WWII, I think this is worth checking out Also, I would highly recommend it to those who enjoyed Between Shades of Gray [...]


    Oh my goodness, I loved it I loved it so much.I haven t felt this invested in a book for a long time Those addictive, fast paced YA books come and go think Heartless, a 2016 favorite of mine And then there are those rich, descriptive adult books that fill you up with new knowledge like The Martian and The Wonder It s rare when a book combines both of these things And that s exactly what The Nightingale somehow, brilliantly managed to do.This book takes a look at two sisters living in France duri [...]


    20 12 17I ve never been able to write reviews for WWII historical fictions Something about books set in that dark time filled with great monstrosities and unthinkable human sufferings just makes expressing emotions difficult This was no different I ve been trying to write something, ANYTHING since the moment I finished and I m seriously blocked But I will try First off, wow.The Nightingale is a harrowing and emotional tale of courage and endurance It tells the story of two estranged sisters, Via [...]

    4 stars I can see why this book is loved by many and it really does warrant all the high ratings It s written in such a raw and poignant manner I think every reader will be moved in some way by the tragic beauty in this story Also, this review will be weird and shorter than normal because A I ve been distracted lately and have lost the ability to reviewB This was a really good book and that right there says it allThere are two main female leads, sisters Vianne and Isabelle Mauriac and the story [...]


    NIGHTINGALE is an excellent WW2 novel, but, in some instances, not unlike others of its kind It explores the horrors of war via occupation by the Nazi s, their brutality and mass murdering of Jews, and the despicable treatment in concentration camps.What separates this work of historical fiction from all the rest is the emphasis placed on the important part women played during wartime The amazing stories of bravery by two sisters, Vianne who struggles to keep the home fires burning while battlin [...]


    By far the most heart breaking and one of the hardest books emotionally that I have ever read It has been a long time since I ve cried so much reading a book Even though it s tough to stomach, it was a really incredible story that I know will stay with me for a very long time _________________After sleeping on this, I haven t stopped thinking about it and had to bump it up to 5 stars, with a proper review.I like a good cry once in awhile What I wasn t expecting was the sob fest I would get while [...]

    Sniffle sniffle 5 HUGE STARS There should be a warning that comes with this novel don t listen or read the end without a box of tissues The Nightingale was fantastic I didn t expect to love this book the way I did I wanted to be Isabelle at times Her bravery was remarkable This is a GREAT audiobook The narrator was phenomenal The Nightingale is basically about two sisters in Nazi occupied France during World War II Vianne the older of the two sisters and the young and adventurous Isabelle Althou [...]
