The Alice Network by Kate Quinn is the only audiobook I have listened to since November. I have been in an audiobook slump. In December I had no interest in listening to an audiobook on my drives. Finally in January I felt like listening and the one I listened to was excellent.
The Alice Network is told in alternating voices and alternating Wars. Eve Gardner, a British girl that was part of the Alice Network of spies in France during World War I and Charlies Sinclair, a young American that comes to England to enlist Eve’s help to locate her French cousin in the aftermath of World War II. In the beginning I wasn’t sure how the stories went together but once I figured it out it was hard to stop listening. A story of strong women in impossible circumstances who are brave enough to survive but in the aftermath must find the strength to forgive themselves in order to live.
I like to listen to audiobooks set in other countries, I like the accents and the foreign words I would skip if I was reading are pronounced and incorporated into the story. The narration of this audiobook was pleasant as the accents moved between American, British, Scottish, and French. I am glad I listened to this book, the narration added an element I could not have done justice to.
