Looking for a novel to read about Switzerland/Austria

Jump to last reply

I'll be in Europe this summer and would love to hear some book suggestions for the long plane and train rides I'll be taking! I like reading books that take place in the regions I'm visiting - in this case, primarily Switzerland and Austria. I'm open to anything, though I love historical fiction, and since I'll be gone for a while, a longer book (500+ pages) would be ideal. (I loved Mark Helprin's Soldier of the Great War and Hemingway's Farewell to Arms to name a few.)

Any recommendations would be much appreciated!!
