review The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society 103 characters The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society Er from a man she's never met a native of the island of Guernsey who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles LambAs Juliet and her new correspondent exchange letters Juliet is drawn into the world of this man and his friends and what a wonderfully eccentric world it is The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society born as a spur of the moment alibi when its members were discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island boasts a charming funny deeply human cast of charact Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Schaffer image from from chrestomanciover blogcom Schaffer wrote most of the book but was terminally ill so called in her niece Barrows to help her complete itThe GLPPPS tells of Nazi occupation of this Channel Island during WW II The story is told via a series of letters exchanged between residents of the island and a writer attempting to learn about their experiences We are offered a wide range of characters some warm and charming some extremist buffoons some heroic some not so heroic The core of the story is Elizabeth a particularly brave and wonderful individual She is the emotional heart of the tale as the many characters all have some experience that relates to her Another important aspect is how all the characters relate around literature From the film image from Shaffer offers us a charming and wide ranging palette of humanity trying their best to cope under very trying circumstances As someone who knew very little about the occupation of the Channel Islands I found it educational as well as a fun read It reminds one of Alexander McCall Smith not clearly for the specifics of the location but for the warmth of the authorial tone The writers clearly care about their characters and this place the way that Smith hovers lovingly over his imagined Botswana Sit back and enjoy This is a delightful informative and satisfying read that celebrates the impact of reading on people s lives From the film image from The film is available on Netflix

review The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society 103 characters The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society Ers from pig farmers to phrenologists literature lovers allJuliet begins a remarkable correspondence with the society's members learning about their island their taste in books and the impact the recent German occupation has had on their lives Captivated by their stories she sets sail for Guernsey and what she finds will change her foreverWritten with warmth and humor as a series of letters this novel is a celebration of the written word in all its guises and of finding connection in the most surprising way Gush gush gush gush gush gush gush GUSH So yes clearly I loved this bookI think the only person I wouldn t recommend this book to is one of those people who only read meaty tomes that might give regular people a brain embolism while they re trying to make sense of the 17 different layers of subconscious meaning I d also hesitate from recommending this book to most men However if you have the ability to find joy and delight in the simple pleasures of a feel good book you too might fall in love with this story The book is written entirely in an epistolary format consisting of letters back and forth between Juliet Ashton a young author in 1946 London and several of her contacts and friends It is just after WWII and people are trying to reclaim their lives and figure out if and how to move on from the tragedy of the war Juliet receives an unsolicited letter from a man who lives on the island of Guernsey one of the small islands situated in the English Channel between France and England known for having loose regulations and financial secrecy in the modern world thereby making it attractive to fraudsters money launderers and criminals but that has nothing to do with this story and why it is enjoyable I just couldn t help myself from mentioning it But anyway Dawsey Adams of Guernsey acuires a used book that had originally been owned by Juliet She had penned her name and address inside the cover and Dawsey decided to write her a letter to share how much he d enjoyed her secondhand book and how reading books had helped several Guernsey residents cope during the time of the German Occupation of their island Before long Juliet is corresponding regularly with Mr Adams and several other Guernsey residents all who had been a part of the Literary Society She learns that the Society was initially formed as a front to explain a broken curfew but eventually became a rewarding opportunity to meet with friends and discuss a love of books Eventually Juliet travels to Guernsey to meet her island pen friends and it was hard for me to put the book down and get any work doneThe letters back and forth between Juliet and her friends gave the book a personal touch and it felt like we were being given an inside look into these peoples lives I subscribe to the belief that letter writing is a lost art form and appreciate books that are heavy on the letters and found the format enjoyable and easy to approach There is also a very sweet love story in between these pages that made me sigh with contentment when the book ended It was a highly satisfying read and I think that most book lovers would also enjoy this storyEven though most of us don t write letters any I think we will identify and be attracted to the notion of maintaining a long distance correspondence with someone and developing a friendship with someone we ve never even met hello Anybody chatemail with friendly strangers on the internet Juliet becomes uite close to her Guernsey friends and there was one passage in particular when she is finally embarking on her trip to meet her pen friends that rung true for me because it was eerily similar to the thoughts I ve had on the occasion when I ve met net friends who crossed that boundary to become real life friends and it s that oh god oh god oh god what if we don t like each other What if my words misled them What if I m not as interesting in person as they thought I was online As the mail boat lurched into the harbor I saw St Peter Port rising up from the sea on terraces with a church on the top like a cake decoration and I realized that my heart was galloping As much as I tried to persuade myself it was the thrill of the scenery I knew better All those people I ve come to know and even love a little waiting to see me And I without any paper to hide behindin these past two or three years I have become better at writing than livingOn the page I m perfectly charming but that s just a trick I learned It has nothing to do with me T least that s what I was thinking as the mail boat came toward the pier I had a cowardly impulse to throw my red cape overboard and pretend I was someone else As if I hadn t already fallen in love with Juliet and her friends by this point reading that passage actually brought tears to my eyes not even kidding because I knew exactly what she was feeling at that precise moment because I ve been there before So yes I loved this book It was beautiful and charming and a sheer delight to read However I think potato peel pie sounds disgusting and I

review The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society 103 characters The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE ON NETFLIX A remarkable tale of the island of Guernsey during the German Occupation and of a society as extraordinary as its name I wonder how the book got to Guernsey Perhaps there is some sort of secret homing instinct in books that brings them to their perfect readers January 1946 London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject Who could imagine that she would find it in a lett Although the abrupt ending frustrated me the rest of the book was so soothing This is probably due to the fact it was written in letters to loved ones and not the subject matter itself as it focuses heavily on the atrocities of WWII Also it s a book about books Nothing makes me happier than reading a book about why reading is wonderfulI read this because I watched and loved the Netflix adaptation yes I m that monster who sometimes watches adaptations before reading the source material I think I may have liked the movie slightly not that this was bad or anything So if you liked the book I recommend the movie and vice versa
