As the novel unfolds and expands, we experience everyday life in this era. Vienna, in the years just before the Great War, was in a sort of golden age bubble --- a bubble that was about to burst. The trajectory of Sebastian's life will change, as will the lives of the other characters we meet, all tied in one way or another to the family's grocery store, a gathering place of many ethnicities.
The author, Christophe Fischer, is a very talented writer. His first book, THE LUCK OF THE WEISSENSTEINERS, was a fabulous read, too. I think the writing in SEBASTIAN is even more graceful and the history so smoothly integrated. Oh, how deftly the author laces the metaphorical shoe that Sebastian will no longer wear. Everyone is missing a shoe of one kind or another. Sebastian's journey is everyone's journey.
Who will love this novel? Anyone who values good storytelling, a well researched setting, and a cast of fascinating characters --- each with their own challenges. The novel holds our attention, so rapt we are in how people adapt, well or not, to changing landscapes in their lives, their decisions often based on their perceptions, accurate or not. SEBASTIAN is superb historical fiction. Highly recommended.
The author writes about different family dynamics and the effects of the war on each of the individual members.
We meet the main hero, Sebastian, his parents Vera and Franz, and his grandparents. We also meet a few of Sebastian’s “love interests.”
The author does a great job discussing about loss, betrayal, racial prejudice, jealousy, courage, and perseverance. I was particularly drawn to Sebastian as we watch him grow up and find himself. Never too confident, Sebastian grows up to be an intelligent young man—a man of integrity.
This was a very interesting read for me. I enjoyed learning about the setting, the time era, and the historical lessons this book contained. Great job!
