The Alice Network is better than most WWII fictional narratives; although after having recently read The Book Thief, and The Tattooist of Auschwitz, the bar has been set too high for me to award this book more than four stars.
Hold on tight and watch where you are going, because the story in The Alice Network meanders a bit, hopping between two World Wars, three pregnancies, spying, lying, betrayal, expensive cars, and uncontrollable rage. An odd trio sets off to find the missing and exact revenge, while fighting against being controlled, and suffering the burden of guilt though not guilty.
I don’t want to drop any spoilers, but the above paragraph may give you an idea of the complexity of this book. It is engaging and at times suspenseful and worth the full four stars.
Thanks to my local library for the loan of the audiobook of The Alice Network!
