"Viann and Isabelle have always been close despite their differences. Younger, bolder sister Isabelle lives in Paris while Viann lives a quiet and content life in the French countryside with her husband Antoine and their daughter. When World War II strikes and Antoine is sent off to fight, Viann and Isabelle's father sends Isabelle to help her older sister cope. As the war progresses, it's not only the sisters' relationship that is tested, but also their strength and their individual senses of right and wrong. With life as they know it changing in unbelievably horrific ways, Viann and Isabelle will find themselves facing frightening situations and responding in ways they never thought possible as bravery and resistance take different forms in each of their actions. Vivid and exquiste in its illumination of a time and place that was filled with great monstrosities, but also great humanity and strength, Kristin Hannah's novel will provoke thought and discussion that will have readers talking long after they turn the last page"--… (mais)

Set in Nazi occupied France, Kristin Hannah's The nightingale follows the journey of estranged sisters Vianne and Isabelle Rosignol. Though related, the sisters have completely different attitude and reaction towards the war and most importantly towards France's occuptation by Germany. Issabelle is the fiesty hot headed teen dying to participate and fight the nazis ; whereas Vianne takes the role of a docile french lady waiting for her husband to return. One of my complains against this book is there is not much character development of the characters, sans one. As a reader I instantly connected with Isabelle and I rooted for her throughout the book; however I despaired to see challenges. I feel the writer could have introduced certain obstacles that could have shaken her resolve and humanized her more.

Written in simple English and divided into crisp chapters, The Nightingale is an easy page turner which can be completed in a sitting or not.
Though the novel is written as a memoir we are not sure who the narrator is. Infact, it is the very last chapter which discloses the identity of the narrator. Through out the novel I found myself rooting for a particular character to be narrator. I applaud the writer for her capability to maintain the mystery for over 600 pages.

The novel is successful in capturing the changing social and political scenario of France as the war progresses. The author uses German and French characters to reflect this progression. However, the reader in me wishes she would have shown this change in a more nuanced manner and not in this "X is good , Y is bad" way that she chose to do.

As a reader you will find yourself completely invested in the story and I am sure you would find yourself moist eyed by the time you turn the last page. I personally cried my eyes out. This brings me to the biggest complain I have of this book - the climax. I feel Hannah Kristin introduced the climax just to make sure her readers are left heartbroken. It does not feel like an organic end and feels forced just to get a dramatic ending (which she is obviously successful at).

Another point I would like to mention is this book is meant for a very specific brood of readers. I am skeptical whether any ready except the ones that identify as female would connect with the characters. The entire novel is for the female reader, which need not naturally be bad , but is something that I felt I should mention.

All in all a good engaging read you can give your weekend to.

This was a very stirring story about a pair of sisters during World War II. The author describes believable characters and very scary situations. It made me thankful for the food I have and the ease of getting it even during a pandemic. ( )

I have an affinity for reading stories based on the events of WW II. This story was up my alley and I enjoyed it from beginning to end. ( )

Had me gripped from the start. This is an ofttimes harrowing tale of bravery and sacrifice during the second world war in occupied France. It made me laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time. ( )
  CharlotteBurt | Feb 1, 2021 |
Many books have been written about WWII but this book features the story of the ordinary people of France which isn't often featured.

Vianne and her sister Isabelle haven't been close since their mother died and their father couldn't cope. When war starts nothing has changed. Vianne lives with her daughter after her husband goes to fight and Isabelle is thrown out of her latest school and arrives at her father's.

The women respond in very different ways both of which requires great strength of character. It's hard for the reader to imagine what they would do if faced with the same situation.

There are many dangers faced by them alongside the privations of living in an occupied country.

Although fiction this is how people actually lived and it's written such that you can really see how they suffered.

As war progresses the tension rises so will everyone survive? Whatever happens everyone will be changed irreparably. ( )

I know that grief, like regret, settles into our DNA and remains forever a part of us.

"We are all fragile, Isabelle. It's the thing we learn in war."
If I had told him the truth long ago, or had danced and drunk and sung more, maybe he would have seen me instead of a dependable, ordinary mother. He loves a version of me that is incomplete. I always thought it was what I wanted: to be loved and admired. Now I think perhaps I'd like to be known.
