Toby’s Room

An interesting perspective of WW1 and its effect on the family and friends of the two main characters, Elinor and Toby, at home and on the frontline. 7/10

The characters never seemed to come to life. Too contrived but I did want to know what would happen next. 6/10

A graphic account of the effects that WW1 had on front line soldiers and their injuries. A blend of fictional and real life personages gives this book a starkly real account of this era. 8/10

Marks without reviews. 7 and 6
