Not going to lie I picked up a physical copy of this book for £1 at my local Waterstones store having absolutely no idea what it was about research rule broken there Alice but since it was set during WW2 and involved the use of letters I was interested to see what Fever at Dawn had to offer Translated from the original Hungarian it is based off of the true experiences of the author Peter Gardos and his parents basically it's the love story between his parents At the end of WW2 Miklos is told that he only has six months left to live he is in a hospital ward but has a dream to get married Soon he writes over a hundred letters to over a hundred girls to see which ones would reply One of the ones that does is Lili whose parents are still missing after she was deported to a concentration camp Using real extracts from their letters Fever at Dawn was an interesting tale however the pacing wasn't smooth with some of the writing being uite choppy and difficult to connect with This book has been made into a film which I am interested to watch and feel I would enjoy that rather than the written novel The emotional connection was not there for me
