I laughed, I cried. Hearing the story of two best friends in WW2 England. The storytelling of the main character was incredible. At the end, you'll wish it was a series. Wishing the story didn't end.
5 stars except...I loved this story and the performance. There were a few times where the storyline got intense. There were times when the character was yelling. And the narrator yelled. I'm ok with that, but I wish the producer had done a better job of leveling the audio. There were a few times I had to yank the earbud out of my ear.
The read was great, a different view of the war and the influence women had on its outcome. I liked the characters a lot.
Yes, it was very well written and narrated. It would be perfect for that long drive with parents or teenagers.
Both women were wonderful. And it's the blend of the two that makes the story great.
I don't think I could have imagined the accents on my own. The cadence brings so much personality to the story.
Friends in War
There's history to be learned, the reality of war, friendship, enemies, hardship and bravery under fire.
The plot and storyline had merit. The book was interesting at first but seemed to really drag on in the middle. With a bit more editing, this one would have been a much better read.
Avid reader. Baker. Musician. Did I say avid reader?
Absolutely. Amazing book, and harrowing, but just super
Their readings were perfect and I loved that they used two readers
Well, SPOILER, Julie is dead, so it would have to be Maddie and Jamie
I would highly recommend this as an audio book in particular, because the ability of the spy character to slip into new accents and characters would have been lost on me had I been reading it in print. The two audio narrators did an amazing job bringing these characters to life.
enjoyable, suspenseful and believable
For me the most memorable moment in Code Name Verity is when one narrator suddenly revealed who she was.
To me, their voices were so similar, it was like listening to a pair of sisters reading their memoir to me.
I highly recommend this book. I enjoyed the story of friendship, endurance and bravery during a horrible time.
This was a great story with unexpected twists. The first part of the book is told from one viewpoint and the last part of the book from a different viewpoint. I finished the book yesterday and am still thinking about the story.
This is not the kind of thing I normally read/listen to, but it is a great story. The background about WWII and particularly aviation then is interesting. The relationship between the main characters is moving. The characters are well developed through showing them in various situations, rather than by exposition.
The narration is very good.
Ahh, that would be giving away some key developments. There are a couple of points at which the book surprises. And a few points at which it gets a little gruesome. I may or may not have fast-forwarded through a couple of those.
Living and learning one story at a time :)
Moving. Thrilling. Heartbreaking
So many to chose from,but I lost my composure when Julie's mother wrote to Kittyhawk
They were fantastic. Best narrators I've heard so far. I particularly like the voice of Julie.
The whole story was moving
This book was purchased on a whim and not my usual type of read. So glad I purchased it. I've also never written a review before but this book was so good I just had to!
