   Tempted to go back to the beginning and reread immediately!
All The Light We Cannot See is one of the books I've read in the last few months. The books came highly recommended. The Doerr book won a Pulitzer. All of them were compelling and made me want to read the whole thing. Code Name Verity is my favorite of the three. I think a large part of that is the fact that, while all three of these books contain elements of hope and tragedy, Verity features a balance of humor as well. I suppose the other two are serious novels. Even in the worst of circumstances, I can appreciate characters who laugh at themselves and the world around them. I can't really recommend this book highly. I will read it over and over again.

   A terrific tale. Would be great in a screen adaptation.
This book was recommended to me in a way that made me want to read it, even though I had never read it before. I was completely hooked from the first page. The story is written in the first person, but not the one telling it. Several plot lines have you thinking that a certain thing is going on, but then there are good twists to the tale. Well done. This could be a PBS series. Or a movie.

   slow start but overall great
I put this book down 100 times after picking it up. I'm glad I finished it because it was something I wanted to do. The story of friendship in the worst of circumstances is beautiful. I really liked how it was written, but the stories were told in different ways. The beginning of this book is very slow. The pace picked up after I read half of it. It took me so long to finish it. The last half of the book is where the story finally becomes worth it. The historical places and facts about WW 2 made it more interesting. I would recommend this book to anyone.

   Difficult to follow
I enjoy reading books about world war 2. I knew the book was fiction, but it was hard to follow. I had a hard time figuring out who was talking and what role they were playing in the story with all the code names and nicknames.

   Best book I have read in a very long time.
Two women in World War II are the subject of Code Name Verity. One is a pilot and the other a operative. You don't want to stop reading this story. You have to know what happens next. The story is not based on actual events, but it is believable and I enjoyed it. I usually don't read again but this one will be different.

   Amazing book!
I loved this book so much that I became friends with the two characters. The amazing story of two women, one who is a secret agent captured by the Nazis and the other her best friend, the pilot who flew her into France to complete her mission, is told. Well-written, moving, riveting and wonderful. Highly recommend to everyone.

   Did not hold my attention
The book was well researched, and I like historical fiction. The idea that it was written by a woman being tortured by her Nazi interrogators was not believable. When she slipped into the third person, I was distracted and annoyed. It was a book group selection and I wanted to discuss it, so I pushed myself to complete it. I would have put it down after the first 50 pages. The second part was more interesting than the first.

   Unusual perspective of WWII
Well written book. I enjoy teaching history through literature and this book gave a perspective not often seen. The main characters are all female and British, with the story taking place in both Britain and France. It is a work of fiction, but it seems to be a story that could have happened, and it is well researched. There are many small side stories that could be great jumping off points for historical research, such as children being sent out of the cities for air raids or ciphers or treatment of prisoners of war. The story can unfold slowly or in large leaps. It's appropriate for middle school through high school. The author uses various literary devices to raise interesting moral and ethical questions. Some loose ends were left at the end.

   Reading for my book club.
British women pilots used to move aircraft between bases. As the war continues, they find more dangerous flights. Over enemy territory in an emergency situation.

   Strong Female Characters in WWII Setting-- Please and Thank You
The two lovely, smart, strong characters that Elizabeth Wein brought to life jump off the page. Two women in World War II are remembered for their heroics.
