Told with warmth and humor in a series of letters, this is a tale of finding connection in the most unexpected places.   January 1946: As London emerges from the Second World War, writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she’s never met, a native of Guernsey, the British island once occupied by the Nazis? As Juliet begins a remarkable correspondence, she is drawn into the world of this man and his friends, all members of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, a book club formed to protect its members from arrest by the Germans. Through their letters, she learns about their island, their taste in books, and the powerful, transformative impact the Occupation has had on their lives. Captivated by their stories, she sets sail for Guernsey. What she finds there will change her forever.

1.0 No.
I remember seeing this book around and on display at the bookstore when it first came out. Someone recommended it to me back then but it didn't sound like something I would enjoy. Recently I saw a few people talk about this book so I thought it would be a good pick up. Presumably this book is abou...

4.0 "The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society" by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows - epistolary novel packed with strong voices and deep emotions
About forty-five minutes in to this eight hour novel, I was on the verge of giving up. I liked the writing and the pace but I couldn't engage with the apparently privileged middle-class characters sharing light-weight banter about publishing and book tours, immediately after the end of World War Two...

4.0 The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Shaffer & Barrows
This novel created incredibly mixed feelings in me, beginning with the ridiculous, lengthy title that gives no hint as to what the book is actually about.

4.0 The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer
5/6 - A lovely little book written in the epistolary style. I haven't read an epistolary style novel in ages, probably not since the last time I read Bridget Jones' Diary, and it was a bit of a surprise. The plot wasn't exactly what I was expecting either, I had the impression that it was about how ...
