A great book, very well written and with a great plot. Unlike many other of the shortlisted books I have read, Wolf Hollow makes a great story from just the lives of ordinary people in America during the war, though the current war does not play any part in the plot. Overall, I found it hard at first to get into reading it, however it soon became a very captivating story, which forces the reader to empathise with the characters or feel the emotions the author wants them to. My criticisms are that sometimes the plot doesn't progress quick enough, however mostly it is at a good pace. One great thing about this book is that the reader quickly begins to like characters, and few are left not explored much (one example is Ruth, who doesn't seem to play any role until something happens to her much later on). This story was hard to predict, and full of good twists or escalations, meaning that Toby – a small character at the start – becomes the centre of the plot by the end.
