Resistance. Most readers can consume Alan Furst’s novel, A Hero of France, on a single flight or two, or during a day at the beach. During that time, a reader is transported to France during World War II and into the actions of members of the French Resistance. Furst’s prose uses just the right amount of descriptive language to make a place come alive for readers, and enough character development to achieve the satisfaction of reading about complex and nuanced characters, just like us.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
