I read it, swiftly enough. I loved and hated it, same as I did the first book in some ways.


I’ll begin with the positives. Maas is a most talented story-teller, and a gifted enough writer to be appreciated. This book contains a vast array of characters, ones far more intriguing to me than in ACOTA...

Kate Atkinson Interview with Kate Atkinson
The year is 1940, and Juliet Armstrong is on the trail of Nazi collaborators. Juliet isn't some high-living MI5 femme fatale; the protagonist of Transcription , a new novel by Kate Atkinson, is just an unworldly, if cynical, 18-year-old girl who writes up surveilled sessions between fascist sympathizers. But though she's a minor cog in the war effort among the secret agents and bureaucrats, she's soon pulled into bigger things—events that haunt her years later. ...more
