Pressestimmen

“I can’t remember the last time I discovered a novel as smart and delightful as this one, a world so vivid that I kept forgetting this was a work of fiction populated with characters so utterly wonderful that I kept forgetting they weren’t my actual friends and neighbors. Treat yourself to this book please—I can’t recommend it highly enough.”—Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love

“Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows have written a wondrous, delightful, poignant book— part Jane Austen, part history lesson.  The letters in The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society aren't addressed to you, but they are meant for you.  It's a book everyone should read.  An absolute treasure.”—Sarah Addison Allen, author of Garden Spells

"As the letters unfold, Juliet—and we readers—learn the little-known history of German occupation of Guernsey. We come to know the brave and endearing people who survived the hardships—and a few who did not....In addition to a fine story, this delightful book offers affirming messages about some of the most enduring forces in life—the power of the written word, the strength of the human spirit and the value of relationships, even unexpected ones."—Winston Salem Journal

"The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is a sweet, sentimental paean to books and those who love them.... It affirms the power of books to nourish people enduring hard times."—Washington Post Book World

“Here's who will love this book: anyone who nods in profound agreement with the statement, "Reading keeps you from going gaga." The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is a delight. Tart, insightful and fun.”—Mary Doria Russell, author of The Sparrow, A Thread of Grace and Dreamers of the Day

"[A] marvelous debut.... Reminiscent of Helene Hanff's 84 Charing Cross Road , this is a warm, funny, tender, and thoroughly entertaining celebration of the power of the written word."—Library Journal

“Charming…. [Heroine] Juliet finds in the letters not just inspiration for her next work, but also for her life—as readers will.”—Publishers Weekly

“I’ve never wanted to join a [book] club as desperately as I did while reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society…. [The novel] is a labor of love, and it shows on almost every page.”–Yvonne Zipp, Christian Science Monitor

"[ The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is] a nifty little cloth whose warp is bibliophilia and whose weft is Anglophilia.... I could not put the book down. I have recommended it to all my friends."—Erica Marcus, Newsday

" A poignant, funny novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit.... This one is a treat."—Boston Globe

“A sure winner…. Elizabeth and Juliet are appealingly reminiscent of game but gutsy ’40s movie heroines.”—Kirkus Reviews

"Fast, fresh.... A perfect novel for adaptation by Masterpiece Theater."—Santa Cruz Sentinel

“A book-lover's delight, an implicit and sometimes explicit paean to all things literary.”—Chicago Sun-Times

“Warm, life-affirming prose … an ideal choice for book groups, and also for individual readers.”—St. Petersburg Times

"Delightful ... One of those joyful books that celebrates how reading brings people together."—New Orleans Times-Picayune

Synopsis

It's 1946. Juliet Ashton, a 32-year-old writer, has found a certain recognition through her light-hearted column for the Spectator which lifted the spirits of her readers during WW2, but she can't think what to write next. But then Dawsey Adams writes to her from Guernsey - by chance he's acquired a book Juliet once owned - and, emboldened by their mutual love of books, they begin a correspondence. Dawsey belongs to the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and as Juliet investigates the strange-named reading group, soon she stumbles upon a whole number of islanders eager to write and tell her of their experiences of the German occupation of Guernsey. Entranced by her new friends, Juliet decides to visit the island to meet them properly. A moving tale of friendship, tolerance, forgiveness and kindness in the wake of a period of unthinkable hardship and horror, this is set to become a classic. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

12 von 12 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Villette TOP 500 REZENSENT am 21. August 2009
Format: Taschenbuch
Es ist schön zu lesen, wie die Protagonistin sich für die kleinen Geschichten und Erlebnisse der Inselbewohner begeistern kann und durch den brieflichen Ausstausch mit ihnen richtige Freundschaften entstehen. Dabei fand ich den ersten Teil, in dem sie per Briefaustausch die verschiedenen Mitglieder der Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society kennenlernt, etwas zu langatmig, weil zu viele Leute vorgestellt werden, wobei ich nicht zu negativ werden möchte. Deswegen auf jeden Fall nur 4 Sterne. Im zweiten Teil ist sie dann selbst zu einem Besuch dort, und das Buch gewinnt wieder an Schwung. Der Erzählstil ist sehr angenehm. Mich wundert es, dass es sich um das erste - und leider letzte - Buch der Autorin handelt, weil die sprachlichen Beschreibungen so schön sind. Es ist eine Geschichte zum Gernhaben. Man kann gut verstehen, was die Protangonistin zu der Insel und ihren Menschen zieht und was sie dort bleiben lässt.

10 von 10 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Corinna Witt am 10. Juli 2009
Format: Taschenbuch
Unusual style - the book consists only of letters and telegramms, received and sent by the fictional woman-writer who collects material for her next book. Topic is the German occupation of the Channel Islands during WWII and while this is a very serious matter, the authors manage to make it an easy and compelling read. All characters are well cut out and even though they are quite different and normally probably wouldn't mix, the occupation brings them together in this book club. There is a love story, too. It's a charming book, describing lovely people who survived the worst.

16 von 17 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Donald Mitchell TOP 500 REZENSENT am 7. November 2008
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society will appeal to anyone who loves to read about courage, integrity, kindness, love, literature, and happiness. Written as a series of letters among the characters, the book will also charm those who enjoy getting to know people through what they reveal in writing.

It would be easy to spoil this gem so I'll reveal as little as possible. In the first letter dated 8th January 1946, author Juliet Ashton writes to her publisher, Sidney Stark, about the results of her book tour for Izzy Bickerstaff goes to War and her new book, English Foibles. It turns out she's tired of being a light-hearted journalist. From there, we trail Juliet as she eventually finds her subject through an unexpected letter from a Guernsey farmer, Dawsey Adams, who owns an old book of hers, Selected Essays of Elia by Charles Lamb, which had her name and former address written inside the front cover. Like Alice when she went down the rabbit hole, that letter opens up a whole new world . . . and set of experiences . . . relating to the English Channel island of Guernsey which was occupied by German forces during World War II.

Unlike literary letters (say of Virginia Woolf), these letters are more often chatty and informative than witty. But each letter opens the door into the hearts and minds of the characters in deeper ways than can occur in the normal narrative of a novel. You will feel like you are solving a mystery at times. You'll even get to know characters quite well that don't write any letters.

I found myself torn between wanting to race to the end . . . and wanting to savor the pleasure of each letter. The latter instinct prevailed.

The letters are short, and you could read most of them in two minutes or less. Even if you are frequently interrupted, you will get right back into the story.

There's a clear possibility of a sequel here. I look forward to it!

8 von 8 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von BettaG am 7. Juli 2009
Format: Taschenbuch
Ein wunderbares literarisches Kleinod! In äußerst warmherziger Art mit herrlich trockenem britischen Humor schildert die Protagonistin die Geschichte der deutschen Besetzung der Insel während des 2. Weltkrieges, verwoben in ihren eigenen Alltag. Sehr berührend, sowie informativ, nie anklagend, ganz und gar menschlich!

5 von 5 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von margret hale am 4. Mai 2010
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is such a charming page-turner, full of wisdom, wit and love for all the honest people of the world.
And it is a massive plea to prevent any war with its cruelties.
I promise that you will be in love with the book's characters after reading. And you will never forget those adorabe human beings: Juliet, the young, almost forlorn writer, Dawsey, the upright, shy, but precious farmer, bewitching Isola, motherless, artistic Eli, sweat fatherless Kit and courageous Elizabeth.

This epistolary novel is a real gem! Don't miss it!

Format: Audio CD
Audio books are getting better and better. For this listener that is largely due to increasing narrations by ensemble casts, giving a breadth and richness to readings that cannot be achieved by even the most accomplished single voices. Such is certainly true of this warm, humorous story that is related in a series of letters.

It is the winter of 1946 in London when our story opens. Author Juliet Ashton is pondering, no searching for ideas for her next book. She's surprised to receive a letter from the island of Guernsey, which was once under German occupation. The epistle is from a man she does not know, Dawsey Adams, who now has a book by Charles Lamb that once belonged to Juliet. Dawsey wants to know where he might find more books by Lamb.

Juliet's curiosity is aroused by this man who shares her affinity for Lamb, and in future correspondence he tells her that he is a member of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, a group formed for mutual protection during the German occupation.

Eventually, Juliet receives letters from other members of the Society, a disparate yet fascinating group, each with a story to tell. In due time she decides she must meet her new friends.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is a wonderful tale, peopled with unforgettable characters and filled with courage, love, humor, all of which reminds us of the invincibility of the human spirit.

- Gail Cooke
