Review: Sarah's Key

Sarah's KeySarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Intriguing historical fiction with an opportunity to shed a light on an event that,as the author points out, the participants tried to forget. Unfortunately, the writing is so shallow that it was hard to not get angry at the author for using such an important story to tell the really, really, really childish contemporary half of the book. The characters in both stories are flat and unoriginal, some make it all the way to stereotype level. The only thing that kept this from being a 1 star book for me was that the information dumps were very informative. Faint praise, but it's all I've got for this book.
