Book review: The Muralist

The Muralist

The Muralist

I really enjoyed The Art Forger in 2015, even though it looks like I never took time to review it. So I requested The Muralist on Netgalley shortly after, and finally read it… last February! High time to review it!!
Not sure why this procrastination, as I really enjoyed both books of the author. They are both historical mysteries based on art, totally my alley.

     MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS BOOK

  Rating systemRating systemRating systemRating systemRating system 

Even though you may not know too much about WW2, I assume you have heard about Kristallnacht, a series of coordinated deadly attacks against Jews throughout Nazi Germany and Austria on 9–10 November 1938. But you may ignore that it is said to have been organized as a response to the shooting of Ernst vom Rath, a Nazi diplomat in France, by a Jewish teenager, Herschel Grynszpan. In Everyone Has Their Reasons, Herschel himself writes letters about his life and about what led to his act. This is a unique historical novel, in form and content.
