I bought this because I wanted something to read. Then I read the blurb later and realised it was historical fiction, something I'm not super-keen on. It is set in present-day France and the diary that the main character Andi finds details the story of a girl living through the French Revolution in 1790.
I found the diary entries that are included really boring and I often skimmed them to get back to the contemporary storyline. The incorporation of the dual storyline seemed awkward and forced. I find it hard to stop reading a book once I start, so even though I disliked it I stuck with it until the end.
