I found Code Name Verity a couple days ago, bought and read it. Here is what I thought of it.
Part One: It's tough read and hard to get into in the first few pages, but then it started getting very interesting. I love the three book references I found and the chocolate one. At points the story is either scary or funny. I love that it reads like a journal. It's cool to have the story in third person. It's interesting reading all this knowing the narrator is in prison. I love her last words the friends exchanged and how she ended her journaling with I have told the truth.
Part Two is a different pov. The girl's friend. It's great that she survived the plane landing. It's scary knowing who she's living with since their son is part of the prison. It's sad and relieving that she found out about her friend through a reporter.
I nearly cried when she confessed death. The author's note is interesting, too. So much research was put into this. You really should read this! Now that I have finished I already miss the characters. I want to read it's companion novel, ROSE UNDER FIRE.
Right after finishing CNV I immediately picked up Speak. I didn't want to dwell too much. I had finally got my reading streak back.
I wanted to cry the whole time I read it. It inspired me to write a few poems. I could relate to the story, yet in a different way. I love how everything slowly turned around for her. Everyone should read this, don't lose your voice. I know I should read more from this author, Laurie H. Anderson.
