Book Review: How Huge the Night by Heather and Lydia Munn
"'Sin is for real, Julien. In you, in me, in Victor Bernard. We are bad people.' Grandpa was looking at him, his eyes deep with sorrow. Julien watched the wind whip the trees.
'Do you believe that?'
Did he? Jesus died. Jesus died for what I've done.
'He meant to, Julien. Nobody made him do it. He did it for what he wanted the most - for you and me to be able to come to him. After what we've done. It was worth that to him. That's what he wants. Us. To welcome us back.'
There were times as I was reading that I didn't understand who was speaking or what the authors were talking about for several sentences. It slowed down my reading and confused me a little. And the plot was fully developed, even though I thought the ending was somewhat unsatisfying.
Most readers who are interested in WWII novels would probably like this book. I give How Huge the Night 4 out of 5 stars.
(I received this book from LitFuse for review purposes. I received no monetary compensation for this review. All opinions expressed are completely my own.)
