"The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows | BOOK REVIEW

It’s 1946. The war is over, and Juliet Ashton has writer’s block. But when she receives a letter from Dawsey Adams of Guernsey – a total stranger living halfway across the Channel, who has come across her name written in a second-hand book – she enters into a correspondence with him, and in time with all the members of the extraordinary Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

Potatoes and the Channel Islands (Geurnsey Potato pie)

At the beginning of the film the Nazis are shown confiscating pigs from a farm on Guernsey leaving the farmer to just go potatoes. Jersey royals grown on the neighbouring island are famous globally, I wondered whether the history of growing potatoes on the Channel Iskands stemmed back to being forced to grow them by Nazis. 35 more words

The Guernsey potato peel film (CONTAINS SPOILERS)

The film was always going to be different to the book because the book is almost exclusively letters. I think the book, brings the film alive and handles some of the book’s flaws. 329 more words

Jersey Potato Pie Film Brief Review (No spoilers)

Films often spoil the books, but not in this case. The book and film are good companions. The film brings the book to life. You could read book first or see film first or read book around watching film. 34 more words
