    Check out this user-created map of Guernsey from GoogleMaps

    Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

    You’ll find quotes from the book relating to various sites around the island, as well as photos of each area. This map is also useful for readers to orient themselves on Guernsey while reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Based on these photos, does Guernsey look like you imagined it did while reading the book?
    Many thanks to the google user “SubmarineGuernsey” for creating this map!,-2.5811&spn=0.121171,0.296288&t=h&z=12&msid=100914396836643406446.0004770085524a485bbdb
