disclaimer – i received a copy of this book via open road integrated media in exchange for an honest review.
i’m not a fan of historical fiction in general but i devour it when it’s about world war ii and/or nazis or really anything in that general vicinity. the sleeper fell right into that category and the general description made it sound like it was something i would really enjoy. unfortunately i didn’t.
the chapters were rambling, the characters were two-dimensional, the plot was weak, and it just kept going for days and days. i seemed to have a pavlovian response to the novel – every time i started reading i’d get about ten or so pages in and fall asleep, even if i started reading soon after getting up for the day. it had promise, it just wasn’t well executed.
one out of five stars
