Not Gregory's best work by far. A depressing and strange read.

I LOVE Philippa Gregory, but this book was just dreadful. I couldn't stand the main characters, both male and female. I pushed myself to finish this one.

Good book, however I did not like as much as some of Gregory's other books. Not sure why, maybe the subject matter. Book was alittle slow at times

With "Fallen Skies," Philippa Gregory once again reminds me of why I love her Historical Fictions. She is an amazing writer, and this particular story had me emotionally invested in no time (Doesn't hurt that I'm an aspiring singer/performer, myself)...

I have virtually no knowledge of England in the time just after WWI, and I found myself happily and entirely engrossed in the world and the story of Lily, Stephen, Charlie & Coventry throughout the book.

It was another book that I wished would have just gone on and on past the last page. :)

Definitely recommended.
