Book Review of
The London House
The London House by Katherine Reay is Katherine Reay’s first historical fiction book.
I have read Dear Mr. Knightly, The Printed Letter Bookshop, Literature and Lattes, and several other books by Katherine Reay and enjoyed them all. I really like her writing and her books, so I was excited to read The London House.
The London House is a dual timeline book set in the present time and WWII. I wanted to love this book, but I didn’t. After looking at other reviews on this I realized that I am in the minority. Most people loved this book.
I thought it was okay, but it is my least favorite of all the Katherine Reay books that I have read.
I felt like the first part of the book was really drawn out and kind of dragged on, but the end felt kind of rushed. I also felt like some of it was unrealistic and didn’t stick to historical facts.
However, I am glad that I read it, and I will continue to read other books by Katherine Reay. I can see why so many love this one, it just wasn’t for me.
