Not at all for me, it was repetitive to the point of rambling.
I understand in the time this was set, diction, pronunciation etc. was different from modern day but it was uncomfortable to read.
The sexism, social class distinction which yes of course existed made it all the more difficult to read, that should not be glorified, it felt to me that the author enjoyed quoting some of these examples. The work done at Bletchley Park was fabulous, the people who worked there were clever, admirable and they of course are and should be applauded but this book did nothing to endear me, enlighten me or instil admiration I only plodded through it as it was for a book club.

This was my first book on Bletchley Park. Very informative and an excellent portrayal of the hidden life of one of the important, if not the most important contributions to victory in WWII. The book makes the Bletchley intellectual youngsters so believable! I hope to go into more books by Sinclair McKay.

SUPERB & GRIPPING

Reads like a thriller in places and in others like social history at its best. It shows that THE IMITATION GAME was almost pure fiction. But as well as being more accurate, this story is more fun and more profound at the same time. Best book I've read so far this year (out of about 25).

Highly recommended.

i really love this book : it's so interesting ! the title is rather a marketing one since this book deals far much more with sociology and even with a topical anthropology.
