Book Review - The Order of the Day

The Order of the Day

By: Éric Vuillard

Book Reivew

Eric Vuillard in his Order of the Day takes us inside the rooms of governmental buildings in Germany, Austria, and Great Britain during the years before World War II. He chapters are vignette style sub-units that loosely couple together offering insight into what was the path to war.

My experience with this book was conflicted. I valued the insight into people, character, and situations that Eric gives. I was frustrated with the vignette style of writing in such a short book. He is not going to please the people who know their history because they will want more, and he is going to be a little beyond the people who are weaker on their history. I am glad I read the book, and there is plenty of value to it. I just don't think it will have a wider appeal for these reasons.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
