Read as historically based fact or fiction, I could not put this book down until the end. It is riveting

Susanna Gregory writes an exciting, if VERY complicated, story and I enjoy the fact that the character's terms are (loosely) based on actual people. This is another intriguing and
enjoyable tale, though it might be helpful to make noes as you go.

Excellent book. Ann Perry has gone much deeper in this novel to expose the effect of criminal actions which may rebound and destroy innocent persons who become unknowingly affected b
them. Here are deeper issues which cause the reader to take further reflection on the effects of
What may seem to be a small sin but one which casts a large shadow. Very thought provoking.

A lovely book, with a touch of mystery dang er and romance. The story is intriguing but not
heavy going at all. I fully intend to read a other of this author's books very soon.

Interesting, but to many examples so that I grew a bit tired after some time. It became a bit like a laundry list. I suppose it was the only way
the author could give so many examples, but it wasn't quite what I wanted.

Actually I ordered this book by mistake, but then decided to give it a go, and I am very glad I did so.
The storyline, the characters and the plot add up to an engrossing book. If you enjoy adventure crossed with sci-fi then you will love this.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Bletchley Girls by Tessa Dunlop, 8 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting look at the attitudes at the beginning of World War 2, and the sheer waste of female ability in those days. It must have been very frustrating for these highly intelligent and, in most cases, highly educated, ladies who wanted to play their part in the war effort, and yet were often denied the opportunity because of the paternalistic and class conscious outlook of the men at the top. However, Tessa Dunlop does develop a clear
picture of the gradual changes brought about by the absolute devotion and determination shown by these young (and some not so young) women to prove that they could work as hard as the men and do all that was asked of them, even in a more lowly position in the team. I am amazed and full of admiration for way in which they coped with the machinery with which they were confronted, and also the sheer grinding effort, in the face of extreme exhaustion which they did their best to ignore. They were the unsung heroines of their time. Not an exciting book but one that had to be written whilst some of the ladies are still alive, and a book that had to be written as a record of their tremendous input to the war effort, which changed the lives and attitude of men as well as women after the war tpp.

Good but not outstanding. It didn't hold my interest as much as his last book. Bit too convoluted - to make the book longer?

This review is from: House of Cards [DVD] [1990] (DVD)
I followed this years ago and it is the most spine chilling take ever on politics and politicians. Ian Richardson is a wonderful actor and he plays this role in the slimiest and most hateful way possible, and he keeps you coming back to see what evil thing he is going to do next, even if you have to watch it from behind the settee. The story line is excellent too. It is very well written and will leave you wanting more as you take another look at politicians and parliament today. This is a classic series and well worth viewing.
