I had mixed feelings about this book It shares many similarities with Birdsong lovers war etc etc The language is gorgeous Faulks writes in a way that really engages the you You feel as though you really know Charlotte you almost feel what she feels For me it felt as if all that was missing from this novel was a good story For huge sections of the novel nothing happens at all Faulks has seemed to have just focused on the travelling between places and writing out many conversations in which Charlotte describes and in my view exaggerates her love for Gregory She seems to view love as one person exploiting another through a wound Read into that what you will And I guess one could agree with her Charlotte is a strange character at points in the book she seems very wise and strong willed and at others almost infantile I think beneath it all she is still a child and seeks from Gregory the love that was neverrarely bestowed on her as a child That s another thing I dislike about this book it s transparency The ending is obvious from the moment you open the book All the other componentseverything but the story however were perfect If you read this expecting another Birdsong you will probably like me be disappointed

Sebastian Faulks Ø 2 Read & download Review ¸ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ø Sebastian Faulks Read ð Charlotte Gray 102 G Europe's darkest years and will confront a terrifying secret that threatens to cast its shadow over the remainder of her days Vividly rendered tremendously moving and with a narrative sweep and power reminiscent of his novel Birdsong Charlotte Gray confirms Sebastian Faulks as one of the finest novelists working today. An interesting take on WWII from the point of view of agents who went into France to help the Resistance but also a slightly odd romance novel Charlotte Gray the main character is a Scottish girl who comes to London in 1942 to do something for the war effort and almost by accident falls into working for a fictionalised version of Special Operations Executive SOE At the same time she becomes obsessed with a daring airman Peter Gregory who also ends up flying missions for the same department dropping supplies to resistence workers in France or picking up British operatives who are returning after missions When he goes missing on one of these flights Charlotte sent to France on her first mission decides to look for him and defies her orders to return home when she has completed her official dutiesThe book is in some respects a not altogether successful mixture of romance psychology espionage in WWII French politics and the plight of the Jews in Nazi occupied Europe with uite a bit of philosophy thrown in as a side order Charlotte is unsure for a long while whether she really loves Peter or has latched onto him because of her own psychological problems stemming from childhood At times she is a slightly irritating vacillating character with no will of her own and her main role in the book seems to be to trot round France and show the reader various other characters and situationsHowever other aspects of the book were interesting such as the light thrown on the attitudes of the French to their German overlords and how some looked on collaboration and even occupation as a necessary evil to sort out problems they perceived with their country And the plight of the Jews as seen through the tragic fates of an embittered artist in his 60s and two young boys whose parents have already been deported to the death camps is heart rending Therefore I found it an enjoyable read while remaining well aware that it doesn t give a realistic portrayal of the real life work of the courageous SOE operatives

    KINDLE [Charlotte Gray] Bewildered this has such a decent rating Perhaps everyone forgot how heavy handed sloppy rambling and sometimes absurd this was until about page 300 when it does markedly get better But it irritated me with its patronising subtext of female subservience to romantic imperatives As if all those female SOE agents went to France principally for an amorous fling And often the research was mopped over the surface with the subtlety of a
