Oh Julie, Oh Julie
I haven’t been able to get these words out of my head since last night, since I finished reading Code Name Verity. I have never cried so much over a book, never. In fact, I couldn’t manage through last 47 pages without sniffing and crying and sobbing. Page 285 broke my heart forever, I don’t think I can ever recover from it.
I remember going to bed with tears in my eyes when I finished Moon at Nine, but I don’t remember crying this bad on any book.
Oh Maddie, Oh Maddie
Elizabeth Wein has written a master piece with everything from WWII, Nazis, true friendship, time testing love, courage, revenge, death and loss, all weaved so beautifully into words that ripped through my heart. I dont know if she got enough credit for this one. I would like to tell her what a lovely piece of fiction she has given to us.
Dear Elizabeth Wein,
I have no idea if you relate more to Maddie or Julie or the poor Engel, I don’t know who was your favorite character when penning this book down, I don’t know if you cried as much as I cried when that bus was on that bridge and I don’t know if I can ever get these names and people out of my head, but I do know you have done a bloody too good a job with the story, the characters, the name, the emotion and thrill.
Just want to thank you for letting me meet Queenie and Maddie.
Just a fan of your book,
If the story and drama wasn’t enough, this book has some amazing lines and oh the humour…
It’s like being in love, discovering your best friend
Till last page, I hoped, I prayed, I begged. But…Oh Maddie, Oh Maddie.
I am not good with reviews, never have written any so all I can say is that Code Name Verity is one fine piece of historical fiction with enough drama, action, pain and emotions to change your life. All I can say is READ IT, READ IT.
It was around 2 o’clock when I decided to finish this one chapter and sleep but when I reached that one page I couldn’t sleep, how could I. I knew I had to finish it now.
Fly the plane, Maddie
Even if it meant spending my Friday with my head in my hands and a burned out brain. I did spend spend my Friday like a zombie but I couldn’t help it.
I don’t know for whom I cried more for Queenie or Maddie. But I do know when Julie yelled Kiss Me Hardy, Kiss Me Quick and when Maddie fired that shot, I was left in pieces.
Damn! You Nazis. In every book, you make my stomach churn but this time you went way too far. Dammit.
There 4-5 books that i would re-read again and this one goes on the top of the list.
