I got a marvellous surprise this morning when I looked at the UK Amazon listing for Hitler and Mars Bars. There were 2 new reviews added during May. I always find it exciting to know that people have read my novel and enjoyed it enough to write a review!
Punk Kimono in London says “The more I read, the more I felt unable to put the book down: I had to see how things would turn out in the end.
I liked the gentle pace because although in some ways I felt the urge to rush on and see what would happen, I also enjoyed ‘looking at the scenery as I passed’. It made the journey very vivid and beautiful.”
Tula in Galicia says “The growth of the child, the path he takes is wonderfully described by the author and is a rich and necessary historical record, although it is a fictional one, of the magnifient humanitary action that some countries carried out to help those children to start a new life.”
As I said, I’m glad these readers enjoyed Hitler and Mars Bars enough to review it – thanks for that! It’s such wonderful encouragement to get feedback from readers.
