5.0 out of 5 stars Sidelines of the Spanish Civil War, May 1, 2014
This review is from: Midnight in Europe: A Novel (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I eagerly look forward to every new book written by Alan Furst, because they show a side of Europe that existed before the breakout of World War II, and the poeple who were involved in many different things. His plots meander along at a relatively slow pace, but the reader is always kept interested by the strength of the writing and the knowledge Mr. Furst has about conditions in Europe during the 1930s.

There are usually several threads that eventually come together, to the satisfaction of the reader. One thing that I particularly enjoy about these books is how the author has characters from some of his other books make cameo appearances, and, of course, no Furst book would be complete without someone eating at the restaurant that has the bullet hole in the mirror! I'd miss that if it were not there.

This is not a book to rush through, but one to savor for all of its many nuances, and I can recommend it highly.
