Set in World War II, the story focuses on two young people: a German boy and a French girl. The two stories are presented in parallel. Well written, the novel reflects the cruelty and violence of war, as well as the main characters' point of view, full of familiar and friendly feelings. It might not be recommendable for younger readers, because of the violent war background, the negative vision of the relations with God from one character, and for some vulgare or sensual passages, that are mentioned, but not descrived. The book won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2015.
