Finished another book last night, word nerd-ian readers: Hornet Flight by Ken Follett. A WWII historical fiction novel told from the perspective of Danish Nazi-resistors, it was a quick and pleasant read, if not as engaging as Pillars or World Without End.
The characters are fairly predictable & one-dimensional, but the period was obviously a compelling era, providing an interesting backdrop for their story lines. The most intriguing aspect for me was reading about the Danish Resistance, a movement I was completely unaware of. That, & I thoroughly enjoyed the way that an airplane, a beat-up DeHaviland Hornet Moth, was both the literal & literary device that carried the story along.
I give it a 2.5/5 stars.
As for my pages read & books read goals, this puts me at 14% and 13%, respectively. Seven books down, 45 to go!
