Notes:
Originally published: London: Doubleday, 2011.
September, 1919. 20-year-old Tristan Sadler takes a train from London to Norwich to deliver some letters to Marian Bancroft. Tristan fought alongside Marian's brother Will during the Great War but in 1917, Will laid down his guns on the battlefield, declared himself a conscientious objector and was shot as a traitor.
"John Boyne has produced a gripping, superbly plotted novel, filled with surprises that are by turns confounding, disturbing and tremendously moving. For all its spellbinding narrative momentum, "The Absolutist" is, in the end, a sober meditation on the heartbreak that ensues when people and principles collide." --Paul Russell, author of "The Unreal Life of Sergey Nabokov" "A relentlessly tragic yet beautifully crafted novel." -"Publishers Weekly".

Just OK. Quite good. Not nice characters. Lack-lustre. More of a chore than a joy to read. Interesting in parts + threw up aspects of religion, homosexuality and other prejudices. Generally not liked very much.
