This book has it all - poor character development, a slow-moving plot that doesn't go anywhere & descriptions that drag on far too long. I liked the reader fine at least.
I love historical fiction, especially set in WWII, but this book was a real struggle to finish. NOT recommended.
The story may have worked if I had not lived through the blitz and was not involved in much of what the writer was using as part of her thread. I knew that the first wire recorders were around about 1943 and that I have had a soft wax 78 rpm recorder. It nagged at me through all of her story. How did she get a compect version for her use in about 1941-2. The way she handled them and played and re=played them could never happen. Sorry but I have lived too long to have bought it.
I was into it enough to stick it out to the end, but I really thought there was going to be more to this story than what it was. I feel like the book is self-important, if you know what I mean. There was a lot of potential here, but in the end I think it kind of fell flat.
