"Of the many novels written about the Second World War, Oatley's stands out for its sensitivity and insight. Students of both history and psychology will find in Therefore Choose a fresh perspective on a well trod subject." — Malahat Review
"This well-written, intelligent, and even wise book deals with choice, specifically with the consequences of the choices that we make in life. It also shows the horror felt by those on both sides of the conflict that was the Second World War. The trauma is all here. So is the guilt, of both the victors and the defeated. Oatley is a good writer, and this is a fine book." — Shane Morgan, The Scene (2013-01-18)
"Unquestionably a literary triumph." — The Walrus (2013-01-18)
"A coming-of-age story quietly and compassionately told. Almost between the lines, the force of history bears down on these characters, as they learn what is possible and impossible in a broken world." — Anne Michaels, author of Fugitive Pieces (2012-05-07)|"A thoroughly thought-provoking read. Oatley is deft with dialogue — big ideas are channelled seamlessly through the minds of his characters. George, Werner, and Anna's every choice — whether to act, react, or withhold action — is imbued with power." — Steven Galloway, author of The Cellist of Sarajevo (2012-05-07)See all Product Description

thoughtful prose, with a lot of intelligence. It draws the reader in and holds
her/him there, until the end-which was unexpected and very moving.
