Three reviews came in this week. They varied: one positive, one mixed, one negative. Such is life.
Sara’s Organized Chaos endorsed Summer of Long Knives:
“Definitely not a book I would have picked up at the book store because it’s just not a genre I can really get into. Surprisingly though, I had a hard time putting this book down because you start off immediately with the murder of a young girl and the story ramps from there…
“If you are a fan of political thrillers, and/or a fan of Nazi Germany era stories, this is definitely something you need to add to your list.”
Diary of an Eccentric was less enthusiastic:
“Overall, I thought The Summer of Long Knives was an interesting novel about a fascinating period in history.”
The book failed to come alive for the third reviewer, Sarah’s Book Shelves, who advised her readers to “skip it”.
Curiously, in spite of the three disparate reactions, all the reviewers gave the book three stars on Goodreads. I guess the rating means different things to different people.
Week 5 should bring us two more reviews. Here’s the schedule:
Monday, October 13th: No More Grumpy Bookseller
Thursday, October 16th: Svetlana’s Reads and Views
Until next Friday…
