It’s funny how some books can immediately grab hold of you and cast you under their spell This is that sort of book The book immediately transports you back to London in the 1940s and 50s The language is just spot on perfect The story revolves around a young woman who is drafted to transcribe conversations among a group of fascists that have been infiltrated by MI5 Juliet is only 18 and before she knows it has been drafted for some spying in addition to her transcription duties Atkinson displays a dry sense of humor “It seemed she had acuired all the drawbacks of being a mistress and none of the advantages like sex She was becoming bolder with the word if not the act For Perry it seemed to be the other way around he had all the advantages of having a mistress and none of the drawbacks Like sex” Poor Juliet is truly naive and I had to keep reminding myself how young she was She keeps waiting for a romance the reader knows is never going to come The rest of the characters are eually well drawn The pettiness the certainty all are brought out for our inspection This is not a fast paced book by any stretch The writing is meant to be enjoyed lots of beautiful phrasing But there is a tension to the book and the ending wasn’t anything I saw coming “Juliet had the sense that she was taking part in a farce although not one that was particularly funny in fact not funny at all” But it is in its own weird way In this day and age I’m never sure if I’m seeing symbolism where it doesn’t belong But it seems fitting that Atkinson picks as her topic the problem of Fascism in England during WWII “Do not euate nationalism with patriotism” Perry warned Juliet “Nationalism is the first step on the road to Fascism” Or this “Juliet could still remember when Hitler had seemed like a harmless clown No one was amused now “The clowns are the dangerous ones” Perry said”Make sure to read The Author’s Note What is the nature of historical fictionThere are some interesting ideas here like what constitutes the real self Or what’s worth fighting for “This England” It’s a book meant to be discussedMy thanks to netgalley and Little Brown for an advance copy of this novel

By turns both tedious and terrifying But after the war has ended she presumes the events of those years have been relegated to the past forever Ten years later now a radio producer at the BBC Juliet is unexpectedly confronted by figures from her past A different war is being fought now on a different battleground but Julie. Great historical fiction in the world of British espionage in WW2 and the repercussions that emerge in the 1950s Touches on issues of class in spying circles being gay the monitoring of fascists a young Juliet recruited to engage in the process of transcription that develops into so much Then some time after the war Juliet is now a BBC radio producer and sees a familiar face that refuses to acknowledge her leading to the entry of a host of familiar figures from the past There are so many great reviews on this so I will limit myself to saying this is complex storytelling that I found thoroughly absorbing enjoyable and immersive historical fiction

TranscriptionT finds herself once under threat A bill of reckoning is due and she finally begins to realize that there is no action without conseuence Transcription is a work of rare depth and texture a bravura modern novel of extraordinary power wit and empathy It is a triumphant work of fiction from one of the best writers of our time. Juliet Armstrong is only eighteen years old when she is recruited by the M15 in 1940 She is tasked with transcribing the conversations of British fascists sympathizers during WWII Before long she is given duties such as working as a spy herself and watching a dog which is being held for a sort of ransom Ten years later she finds herself working for the BBC as a radio producer She appears to have moved on with her life until those from her past come back reminding her that one can never get away and there are spies who spy on the spies and that past crimes can and will haunt you The plot shifts around mainly between the 1040's and 1950's with brief time spent in the 1980'sThe plot shifts around mainly between the 1040's and 1950's with brief time spent in the 1980's Juliet begins the book as a young woman mourning the loss of her Mother while attending school to learn a trade She is recruited right out of the school and passes the initial test and is thrown into the world of espionage You've come a long way baby comes to mind This is a slower moving book and one needs to really pay attention to detail I did struggle at times with the slowness Initially I really enjoyed the book and then things felt tedious then things picked up once again Juliet is also an interesting character I failed to connect with her and yet I enjoyed reading her thoughts She had a dry sense of humor and had some witty and insightful thoughts The other characters in this book had their own sense of humor as well I do not read a lot of espionagespy novels and it was nice to see the humor thrown in As Juliet's job is transcription the reader gets to see the transcriptions that Juliet has made I enjoyed this touch even though some of the conversations were mundane I thought this was a nice way to show that a spy's life is not always exciting and how many spy organizations gather their data Plus this is another way of giving the reader a glimpse into Juliet's life her interactions with others in the M15Apart from some pacing issues I was hoping for a little action in this book But again as I mentioned before this book was dealing with transcribing data so there can't be too much action in that and even the fight scene was all very proper Atkinson's writing is wonderful and I thoroughly enjoyed her Author's Note at the end Don't skip thatI enjoyed this book and appreciated that Atkinson used a female protagonist ahem spy in this book I just wished I connected with Juliet She started off as naive and got some maturity and oomph as the book progressed but I never felt connected to her character There are uite few characters in this book but I found it easy to keep track of themFans of Atkinson WWII buffs and fans of spyespionage novels will surely enjoy this bookThank you to Little Brown and Company and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review All the thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are my ownRead of my reviews at wwwopenbookpostcom
