Birdsong by Sebastian Faulk

Birdsong by Sebastian Faulk is a stunning, thoughtful and dramatic book. The books opens with a love affair, but moves to the appaling battlefields of France and the sheer desperation of the men in the trenches. I never knew, until I read this book, about the tunnelling that went on beneath the battlefields of France. I rather liked the way the narrative jumped from Stephen's story before and during World War I, and the closer present with his granddaughter Elizabeth researching his past. 5 Stars
