Reviewed in the United States on September 18, 2018
Immediately reading the first few pages of this book, I was dismayed and increasingly skeptical of its written quality. While the real lives depicted in this story deserve awe and merit for their survival of such a catastrophic period, the portrayal of the story lacks depth.

I was surprised to see so many positive reviews! A few others have been able to concisely pinpoint the problem with the writing - mainly the book is a narrative shell that primarily glosses over the struggle of surviving such dire circumstances to focus on a love plot with little dimension. Elementary prose and cheesy one-liners dominate this novel.

At the very least, I appreciate the attempt to bring light to such a unique, real-life love story....
