Review: City of Thieves by David Benioff

City of ThievesI didn’t know historical fiction could be this funny.

Hilarious. I have to admit, for a historical fiction this one is incredibly and surprisingly hilarious. I don’t know if it’s appropriate or even legal for a historical fiction to be funny but I guess this one’s an exception. Although it wasn’t funny to the point it was disrespectful and rude but it was, in a way, to lighten the mood, the atmosphere—since it’s set in World War 2

Friends. Throughout this book, you’ll see the value and essence of having (real) friends.

To be honest, for a historical fiction, this felt the most unrealistic in terms of characters (which is a win-win btw) In the first place, it was meant to be a fictional work so obviously it wasn’t supposed to be realistic and without it, this wouldn’t be nearly as funny—so no hard feelings.

Now that’s out of the way, I really enjoyed reading this one! It was certainly not what I expected it to be, which in this case is a good thing. Although I won’t say that I prefer historical fiction this way however I definitely like the idea that it can be funny and light sometimes.

Also the ending was a little bit annoying, but appropriate, nonetheless still annoying.

Actual Rating: ✰✰✰✰
