    Not all of Kate Atkinson s novels have been what she calls historical fiction, but the last several have been This novel may hew closest to the truth, though like she says in the Author s Note at the end, she wrenched open history and stuffed it with imaginative reconstruction, at least one fantasy for each fact The author tells us afterward what her intentions were we have questions that s inevitable and instead of farming out possible answers to various reviewers, she s just blunt with us w Not all of Kate Atkinson s novels have been what she calls historical fiction, but the last several have been This novel may hew closest to the truth, though like she says in the Author s Note at the end, she wrenched open history and stuffed it with imaginative reconstruction, at least one fantasy for each fact The author tells us afterwa...

    2 oh my disappointing stars.I do like Atkinson s novels so when this one popped up, I was anxious to begin turning pages Unfortunately the anticipation for this novel went south as I become bogged down in a uneven plot, and the flipping of time elements This is a book I should have loved It had everything, World War 2, a strong intelligent ...

    Atkinson is one of my favorite authors and, with Transcription, she has moved her star even higher The tale is set in England, primarily London, in 1940, 1950 and 1981 The pivotal events occur in 1940, when Juliet Armstrong at 18, is recruited for the war effort But not for any battle related job, no She is to file and type Soon she is recruited further as a transcriptionist for an MI5 developed cause, to reel in and control English Fifth Column citizens, those who sympathize with the Nazis Atkinson is one of my favorite authors and, with Transcription, she has moved her star even higher The tale is se...
