About this deal

The descript Her novel Caging Skies is an international bestseller, sold in over twenty countries and the basis for a major new film by director Taika Waititi.

I admire Leunens’s refusal to soft-soap anything, even as, while reading, I had to put the book down and pace around the room. Instead of believing more in her longevity as the years went by, we strangely believed in it less and less. If it was the Author's goal that I despise the main character with every fiber of my being then this book did exactly what it was meant to and well.However, it is an interesting read and if you enjoy a book which makes you think then I would give it a go.

The WWII backdrop is present enough to provide an environment of angst and oppression yet remains all the same subtle and eerie to let the confrontation between Elsa and Johannes take a hold of the reader's attention. I didn't have to look far to find it and after detaching it from the wall, I put it back on its dish. I'd recommend this book to anyone looking for a book about WW2 that's very different, and uncomfortable in a totally different way than what you'd expect.I think if there book had been from Elsa's perspective or a neutral one, I may have even enjoyed reading this book. At first, she wasn't at all fond of the idea because she felt that she would be intruding on us; and she reassured my parents at breakfast every morning that she wouldn't bother them long . The scene in the book where the boys are killing ducklings was inspired by what I was told by them about the boys having to kill rabbits, twisting their necks.
