Guernica by Dave Boling

I really like fiction that is based in fact so I end up learning as well as getting lost in the story. On that note, Guernica doesn’t disappoint. I found the characters incredibly rich and believable. Their love and strife educated me about the Nazi bombardment of Spain on the cusp of WWII. I loved their stories. I also learned more about the impetus for Picasso’s painting of the same name. However, I didn’t love the disconnection between the characters’ tales. Some characters are dropped for over a hundred pages at a time, making their re-appearance a surprise.
