2014 Audiobook SYNC: Code Name Verity

Code Name Verity - Elizabeth Wein

SQUEE!!  I just finished the audiobook of Code Name Verity, which I downloaded as part of this summer's Audiobook SYNC.  This was the title I was most anticipating, and I was not disappointed.  Other reviews I've read are mixed, but I'm in the camp that found Code Name Verity to be bloody brilliant!

 

I don't know what I can say without spoilers, other than all is not what it seems in war-time Britain and France.  I liked the artistic decision to use two narrators, one for Verity and one for Maddie.  I loved how the repeated allusions to Nelson and to Peter Pan wove through the story.  While the story of Maddie and Verity does not end well, I was riveted throughout the twists and turns (and cried at the end). 

 

 

On to the companion volume:  The Hiding Place, the memoir of Corrie ten Boom.
