Usually I wouldn't go for this genre of book, I prefer more contemporay books. However when I saw the trailer for the film adaptation, I was intrigued to see what it was about. I am yet to see the film, but I am sure that I will enjoy it as I found the book amazing.
At parts it is a little romantic so that is partly why I like it but it was also a little sad. I found the book incredibly interesting and it has made me interested in the history behind the main character as it is a biographical book about a transgender woman in the late 20's/early 30's.
To say that I bought the book on a whim, I have strangely and thoroughly enjoyed reading it and would recommend it to anyone. It really opened my eyes on how being a transgender woman was like in those times. It also made me want to read more books from this genre.
Have you read The Danish Girl or seen the film?
