"Canters along at a fair pace but poorly researched"
This is not a bad book in terms of plot or characterisation. It is nicely paced and generally enjoyable. However, it is badly researched with most of the details of period Britain being wrong - for example, there was no M42 motorway in the war and indeed, not for the next 40 years, Coventry was a centre of heavy industry rather than a college town, rationing would have made most of the meals impossible and so on. However, this is less intrusive than the overly flowery descriptions - a man never has brown eyes if he can have hazel, rimmed with long lashes and darting with intelligence. A decent editor could have fixed the craft issues in this otherwise quite enjoyable book. If you can handle a little overwriting and sloppy research, it is well worth a listen.
