Book Club Book Review: The Alice Network By Kate Quinn

My Book Club's pick for the month of August was this new release novel The Alice Network by Kate Quinn


This novel has two exciting stories being told in parallel chapters, one from 1915 in World War 1 and the other in 1947 at the end of World War 11.

Based on the true tales of 'The Alice Network' of female spies in wartime, there are two main female characters who tell their stories - a young Eve who was recruited in France as a spy in World War 1 and then Charlie a young American girl who travels to London to search for her cousin who disappeared at the end of World War 11.

These two stories eventually connect and along the way you are taken on a wild journey of the horrors of war, self discovery, love and revenge.

I really admired the strong female characters and the way they did their part for the War. Learning the untold stories of how women made an impact in the War and held their own in a mostly male dominated time period made this story even more enjoyable to read.

I recommend this book to anyone interested in female spies during the War.

I give this book 5 stars out of  5

Jarrah Jungle's Star Rating:
1 Bad - I'd rather eat brussel sprouts topped with anchovies than read this again
2 Not Good - I'd rather watch paint dry than read this again
3 Ok - I'm sitting on the fence - its not great but not terrible either
