The Thread

Historically very interesting, but disappointing characters who I found it difficult to empathise with. 6

A history lesson with a compelling plot and superb characters at the centre of the story. 7

An easy book to read depicting the history of Thessaloniki from 1917 to 2007. The after effects of WW1 and the effects of WW2 on the inhabitants are explained. However the author’s prose and characterisation are sketchy and the ending trite and unbelievable. In other hands it could have been a classic. 6
