Notes: Very little to record here. In terms of what I learned, there was additional detail about the use of slave labour on the Channel Islands by the Nazi occupation; and a little more on the slightly odd legal position of the Channel Islands within the United Kingdom. In terms of how it made me feel – it was a nice, warm book that however got a little bit too cute or precious when it came to characters talking about how books made them feel. Every character magically gets transposed by the first book they read – whatever happened to the slow process of finding which books you like? But that’s a very small thing to quibble about.
