2.0 out of 5 stars A poor telling of what should be a great story., 13 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spy Princess: The Life of Noor Inayat Khan (Paperback)
There is a wonderful story to be told about this very brave woman. Sadly this is not it. In the opening section which deals with her childhood, the author seems to believe that you need to put the Noor at the start of every sentence or every other sentence. Unless you have introduced someone else into the story, no point. Two pages deal with agent training in Scotland and then parachute training at Ringway, only to be told that Noor did not attend either of these. To compound the issue the fact she could not jump had already been covered. Then it is repeated again by the Germans when she is captured. We are then told that Lysander pilots took agents to France in a full moon period as it increased their visibility. Really would never have thought of that!
There was so much more that could have been explored. On one of the poorest books of this genre.
