I should probably have thrown in the towel when the story stopped working for me and I was forcing myself to continue reading the book But no this was a netgalley book and I was going to finish it This is the last time I think so next time when the book fails me I will just stop and read something else instead of suffering through I book that is clearly not meant for me The Bone Church follows two separate story lines WW2 in Prague and after the war several years later; unfortunately it just didn’t work because it just made the story confusing to read Suddenly you are in the past and you reading about characters you hardly remember I just felt lost and also the characters weren’t memorable I just didn’t care if they found each other or if the real infant of Prague was found apparently that was part of the story also Frankly my dear I just don't give a damnA half star upgraded to one star since GR don't have half stars Thank you Netgalley for providing me with a free copy for an honest review Review also posted on And Now for Something Completely Different and It's a Mad Mad World

I won this a few months back in a giveaway I've previously been uite concerned when reading historical fiction as my knowledge is a bit limited but was thrilled when I learned this was set in a period I know uite a bit about having just finished my Modern History GCSE The plot sounded so interesting after learning so much about propaganda throughout Nazi Germany and the surrounding areas during WWII and it did not disappoint a plot to assassinate Joseph Goebbels no less I loved reading this Dougherty has an excellent way with words Would highly recommend even if books set in different time periods aren't your cup of tea

The Bone ChurchIn the surreal and paranoid underworld of wartime Prague fugitive lovers Felix Andel and Magdalena Ruza make some dubious alliances – with a mysterious Roman Catholic cardinal a reckless sculptor intent on making a big political statement and a gypsy with a risky sex life As one by one their chances for fleeing the. THE UNBEARABLE HEAVINESS OF BEING'The Bone Church' by Victoria Dougherty is a beautifully crafted piece of fiction Set largely in and around Prague the narrative alternates between the time of the Nazi occupation and specific events in 1956 when Czechoslovakia was under the heel of the Soviets The central concept deals with the lengths people will go to in order to survive in an inhuman landscapeThe writing is spare and tense with an authentic Eastern European feel The Sword of Damocles hangs over the heads of the main characters Felix and Magdalena and the reader is drawn skilfully into a world of mistrust and paranoia The threat of betrayal is ever present The twisting narrative enhanced by its time dislocated structure is claustrophobic and dark a meditation on suffering and redemptionAt times I was put in mind of the works of Milan Kundera while the novel also has something of Graham Greene's 'The Third Man' about it The Church of All Saints the 'Bone Church' of the title sits at the metaphorical core of the book a constant reminder of impermanence and mortality Like Eliot and Webster before him Ms Dougherty knows well the skull beneath the skin and how life and death elidePeopled with memorable characters and with some fine plotting Ms Dougherty's novel is a serious candidate for my Book of the Year 2014
