I received a copy of this book through a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review. Thank You!
I love stories relating to both Wold Wars, especially ones based on true stories. When I entered the giveaway for this book I was both excited and hopeful that I would get a copy and I was thrilled to be one of the lucky people to receive one.
This was an interesting read for me. I didn't really know much about Nancy Wake and I found her story intriguing. As I mentioned above, I love reading about the war so this was no surprise to me. Unfortunately the book read more like a documentary so it may not appeal to everyone. Although the text was interesting it did seem to lack some life behind the characters which made for a somewhat dull read and took away from the actual events that occur throughout. It reminded me of reading an essay. All the facts and information are there but no feeling or emotion. For lack of better words it was a bit robotic. For this I was a little disappointed.
This book would be good for people who are interested in learning about Nancy Wake but don't really care about the story or emotions of a book. For me, I like to have both.
