The Last Hundred Days by Patrick McGuinness

Very interesting to read this directly after A D Miller’s Snowdrops; this one longlisted and Miller shortlisted for the 2011 Booker, and both similar stories, although very different books.

It’s quite an intense read, very in depth and not a little claustrophobic now and then. One for lovers of modern history as well as those who enjoy a captivating story well told. Some of the detail is actually quite horrific in a quiet way, which I think only adds to its power.

    I have also just finished reading The Last Hundred Days (will try and get a review up soon) and I have also read Snowdrops quite recently too. I really enjoyed it as far as you can ‘enjoy’ a book about that sort of subject.
