It was wonderful to read a story co-starring Alan Turing. This book really came to life about a third of the way in when Turning enters the story and ended on a positive note regarding Turing's death, so I learned something too. The Bletchley Park section was very compellingly written - it made me feel I was there. The coded acknowledgement is an intriguing puzzle - a bonus at the end of this delightful book.

This book was given to me as a gift. As a primary school adviser and former HMI I was keen to see whether it would appeal to rather reluctant readers. This was the starting point for my read but after just a few pages I was hooked and I was lost in the codebreaking word with little thought being given to reluctant readers. The pace of the work is strong and rips through a number of timewarp events with clarity and insight. It's a great book for all readers (young and old as well as those more reluctant). It's also a good choice as a class reader.

Ordered this as we are planning a trip to Bletchley Park and wanted the kids to have a bit of a fun introduction. It was recommended by two different people and it didn't disappoint. I ended up reading it as well (45 yr old) and really enjoyed it. My 12 year old now wants to read the whole series.

I'm 31 years old and, even though this book is aimed at 7-12 year olds, I loved it! From the start, the author immerses you in a world where time travel is possible and where characters come to life before your eyes. The author's style is one of gentle storytelling, that allows the reader to conjure a whole world around his words.

As someone with a background in science, and an interest in Alan Turing, I was most excited to read this book and wasn't at all disappointed. Mr Morris pays great credit to the 'codebreaker' from start to finish and the way in which he addresses a subject as delicate as Asperger's Syndrome is just wonderful.

I have no doubt that readers of all ages will love this brilliantly told story and will want to learn more about the great Alan Turing upon finishing.

I look forward to reading more from this talented author.

Bravo, Mr Morris. Bravo!

Originally bought as a gift but, as I'm already familiar with Alan Turing's life and achievements, decided to have a quick flick through it. And finished it. I'll be keeping hold of this copy and buying a second one as the gift.

Obviously aimed at the pre-teen/young teen age group, it's still got sufficient depth to hold the attention of a 40+ year-old inveterate reader like me. Also sneaks a number of educational points in there - things about Turing's history and personality that I didn't know despite considering myself fairly well informed on the subject.

Highly recommended read for the kids and you might want to "borrow" it yourself when they've finished it.
