Between Shades of Gray Reviews

    Actual rating: 4.5 starsAs soon as I saw this video, I knew I had to read this novel. Between Shades of Gray isn't the type of book I'd normally read, but I'm extremely glad that I decided to read it. Lina is a very strong and courageous character. Despite the situation Lina is placed in at the youn...

    This is not a pretty book.Even though I found this novel exceptionally well-written, it was not a pleasure to read. It’s about Lithuanians displaced to Siberian work camps during World War II. It was pretty unflinchingly brutal, but here’s why I think you ought to read it:1. It is a side o...

    My thoughts in a nutshell Between Shades of Gray is a harrowing read. My thoughts will be shorter this time because I couldn't say anything about this horrid occasion. :-(The story is about…Skip over this point if you don't like the sneak peek. A Lithuanian girl Lina and her family will be dep...

    Um... so I'm a bit torn on this one but I'm going to rate it 3.5 stars. I think what made it worse was all the bloody hype (like with Matched) that made me think this was going to blow my mind and it kind of just, well, didn't.It was an interesting history lesson. My knowledge of Soviet activities...
