Harrowing and beautifully written Elizabeth Wein creates a visceral read of danger resolve and survival that shows just how far true friends will go to save each other Code Name Verity is an outstanding novel that will stick with you long after the last pa “It’s like being in love discovering your best friend”This is distressing I am very distraught I did not like this book as much as I hoped and it breaks my heart I'm aware that we can't love every book we read and you may think it a tad dramatic of me to say this but WWII historical fiction is a sub genre that I've rarely been let down by EverThis had all the makings of a potential favourite yet somehow missed the mark I'm still reeling from itSet in the turmoil of the Second World War the book follows the fate of two young British women Maddie a modest pilot and Julie an aristocratic Scotswoman turned spy I loved the story just not the way in which it was toldIt took me so long SO LONG to get into the book and I almost I considered giving up completely – mainly because I struggled to follow what was going on and was confused by all the plane jargon coded abbreviations jumping between different time periods and rambling writing style it all felt a bit haphazard There were so many things I couldn't understand like Julie’s determination to bargain for extra time to finish her story when it would just prolong her suffering but my biggest source of confusion was why the Germans were so keen for her to write it as it contained very little information on the British War Effort that would actually be of any use to them I was frustrated by how difficult it was to grasp why certain things were happening such as the interview with an American journalist or even why Maddie and Julie spent a whole day trying to cycle to a café in the rainThe second half of the story shed so much light on almost all of the puzzles and I got into the story as the book went onNeedless to say I was absolutely unprepared for the ending That damned shocking ending which felt like a punch in the throat It was such an unfair twist that I can’t for the life of me get it out of my head StillAs much as I enjoyed the latter half I wish I love the book as a whole because I feel like I've missed out on certain things that would have enhanced my reading experience

Oct 11th 1943 A British spy plane crashes in Nazi occupied France Its pilot and passenger are best friends One of the girls has a chance at survival The other has lost the game before it's barely begun When Verity is arrested by the Gestapo she's sure she doesn't stand a chance As a secret agent captured in enemy territory she's living a spy's worst nightmare He I have a feeling I'm not going to be very popular by posting this review everyone seems to love this book so far and I feel disappointed in myself and my tastes than the novel or the author Code Name Verity is one of those books that are the reason why I created the shelf its me not you I mentioned this very recently in my review of The Book Of Blood And Shadow and it is also similar to the experience I had trying to read The Book Thief and Feed I just found 90% of the book long winded and unnecessaryThe novel opens where the narrator has been captured by the Nazi opposition during WWII She is given paper to tell her story and she does so through the eyes of her friend Maddie Different definitely Maddie's story is told in various anecdotes a techniue I've already failed to appreciate in The Book Thief but I suppose the intention was to subtly build up a picture of both girls' pasts and their friendship This book is not very plot focused or fast paced it's about conversations and people and female pilots during the second world war which would all have been great if it had been balanced out with a touch of dramaI cannot tell you just how much I wanted to like this It's about women's involvement in the war and us Northern girls two topics that don't get nearly enough press But for me there was just too big a focus on piloting and aircraft and I'm sorry but I struggled to care If you read the author's note at the end she will tell you that this book is actually meant to be about pilots This book started off rather simply as a portrait of an Air Transport Auxiliary pilot Being a woman and a pilot myself I wanted to explore the possibilities that would have been open to me during the second world warAnd not enough else was brought in There's only so many descriptions of a pilot's job I can sit through before I start to snooze each to their own but flying planes has never been an interest of mine The best parts of this book were the touching ending and the fact that the narrator is delightfully unreliable I love them I do Eugenides I miss you but I needed All I really want is for a book to rouse some passion in me whether it be excitement sadness anger even I felt nothing

Code Name VerityR Nazi interrogators give her a simple choice reveal her mission or face a grisly execution As she intricately weaves her confession Verity uncovers her past how she became friends with the pilot Maddie and why she left Maddie in the wrecked fuselage of their plane On each new scrap of paper Verity battles for her life confronting her views on courage and failur A Scottish girl called Verity in a nice bit of obfuscation is the name accurate or ironic? is captured by the Germans in France during WWII Apparently broken by Nazi torture she begins to write her confession doling out bits of information to her Nazi captors to motivate them to keep her alive and refrain from further torture She has been spying for the Allies so her prospects for a long life are dimVerity tells the tale of her involvement with the British war effort spiced with bits of information about airplane types and airfield names to keep the Nazis at bay But somehow her writing tells about her developing friendship with Maddie a British pilot who against all rules and regulations for female pilots flew her to France for this mission The two girls come from different walks of life and have different talents and interests but as they are periodically thrown together during the war they find that they are kindred soulsIt's like being in love discovering your best friendThis book also shows so many different faces of heroism sometimes in heartbreaking ways It's not an easy or light read I think I spent the last 50 pages sniffling and wiping my eyes I can't say it's a perfect book There are some slow parts where I just wanted the story to kick into a higher gear We already read about this event from a different POV and know what happened so why are we belaboring this part of the past? Move along And it's non linear moving back and forth between the past and the present and backtracking to tell another character's point of view I'm all for creative storytelling but I think that particular device has been overused lately Not everything about the plot is plausible so there was a little belief stretching than I like to have to use in a non SFFantasy book And of course lots of wartime angst and misery although it's handled with a fairly light hand older YA level than adultOn the other hand it's got some really intriguing twists in the plot and a lot of unexpected depth and some great writing It's well worth your time; just don't read it when you want something light and fun There's humor and joy in it but also great pain It moved me and it will stick with meInitial post I just finished this story of two friends a British woman and a Scottish one helping with the WWII effort I'm a uivering bundle of goo; I don't think I can be objective about this book for a day or two There were a few slow parts and pain and angst than I usually like in my fiction but some really wonderful parts to it as well I'm going to call it 4 stars for now and see how it settles
