    One thought on “Stage Door Canteen

    1. LA on said:

      Normally I enjoy reading books set in the early 40 s and during WWII Although set in the era I enjoy, Stage Door Canteen was a huge disappointment The storyline was disjointed and the characters weren t fully developed Within the novel there were a number of characters who had stories to be told However, a couple of these stories ended awkwardly In my opinion, the ending of Stage Door Canteen seemed incomplete I was left with questions than answers Perhaps that is how the author, Maggie Davis, [...]

      I found this to be a moderately enjoyable read about a slice of life against the backdrop of WWII.On the home front, Jenny is an actress in rehearsal for the play that will ultimately become Oklahoma , and a hostess at the Stage Door Canteen, which provides hospitality and comfort for the Allied Forces, with a husband in the war Other stories are interwoven concurrently, such as that of Dina and Gene, wartime sweethearts.Some of the military descriptions were written in an uninteresting fashion, [...]

      I found this book tedious I liked reading about the making of Oklahoma , but that was about it The letters between Brad and Jenny were way too long and hard to believe Brad would have put sensitive info in them, even if they weren t being censored I know many celebrities helped at the canteen during the war, but their names were just dropped in without much background I think the author was just trying to put too much in a short amount of space.

      I actually liked this book It had a bit of history, romance and NYC glamour all in one The author also told the reader what was true most of the book and what was fictional I did feel the book ended quite abruptly this could be because I was not quite sure who the protagonist was.

      Light read, but was a different perspective on the War, something I didn t know that much about.
