The Organised Author

Devotion by Louisa Young

I loved the story of Nenna and Tom, and the historical details about Italy during the Fascism period and the descriptions of Rome are simply amazing. But the omniscient point of view pulled me out of the story. I found it hard to focus on the protagonists with the constant head hopping. There were, in my opinion, too many storylines, and I felt like it was everyone’s story. If the omniscient point of view doesn’t bother you, you’re going to love this novel.
