It’s always extremely rare for me if I happen to see the movie before I’ve read the book. In this case, I had watched the movie a few months ago and had absolutely loved it. I had decided there and then that I would definitely read the book. And I’m so glad I did.
This book is such a breath of fresh air that we’re all craving for these days. It’s feel good, without any unnecessary airs, talks about how the World War II affected life and most importantly, it pays an ode to people who love books. And the cherry on the cake is that it’s written completely in the form of communication that I love the most, letters!
I absolutely loved the concept of the story and the beloved characters will stay with me for a long time to come. I can read as many thrillers or hard hitting books as I want, but my heart always truly finds solace in such simple stories which have books at the heart of them and how they are the ultimately the mediums that bring people together.
