Movie: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society

Somehow or other this book slipped past me, even though I now find that lots of people have read it.  It’s a satisfying little love story, nicely self-contained, with a strong feel-good factor. I must confess that I knew nothing about Guerney’s World War II history. And what book-lover couldn’t enjoy a film about other people who love books?

My rating: 3.5 stars

  1. Tick, just one more person like me who did not know about the WWII occupation of Guernsey.

  2. Read the book, very much enjoyed it, looking forward to seeing the film.

  3. I saw this yesterday. I had read the book because it was given to me by the publisher (I’m pretty sure). I was stunned by the occupation of Guernsey. Who knew!

    In the end it’s a bit sweet (and was certainly predictable in terms of the main narrative) but that history gave it a bit of oomph. The film was enjoyable, partly for the cast. Loved seeing all those favourite English actors.
