Badly-written condensation of earlier books on the same (admirable!) woman. Don’t bother. Unless this book represents your first encounter with Odette, you’ll probably find it a great disappointment. I’m older, so I read her story when I was younger, admired her greatly, and hoped to learn more from this book. In fact it’s a shortened version of the books already available, the most well-known being Odette by Jerrard Tickell and a later one from Penny Starns. This book is in parts a word-for-word retelling of the Tickell book and the Starns book; the only new parts were taken…
Noveletish This is the second book that i have read recently,the first being about James Stewart,where the author presumes to interpret what he thinks that person maybe thinking.I find it extremely irritating.At times with the romance added in,it feels more like a book written by Barbara Cartland.Also as another reviewer has pointed out,it adds nothing to add a cliff hanging ending to each chapter.Maybe he should write a book on Audie Murphy instead.
Very interesting book I’d never heard of Odette, so this book was a bit of an eye opener. I don’t know if her work is still covered by the Official Secrets Act but if not, then I’d like to have read and learned more about what she actually did as a spy. Coverage of her actual activities is very very vague and the only merit I can see for Odette receiving any military awards would be for withstanding torture. This is obviously not the case and that’s why I’d like to have read more about her actual activities.
