Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader.
Here's the beginning of the book I'm featuring today.
This is one I've just put down, finished - I loved it. Juliet Armstrong works for the BBC in the 1950s on Children's Hour, but ten years ago, she was a spy in London in WWII - transcribing conversations on her trusty typewriter.
At Freda's Voice, you'll find the Friday56, where the excerpt comes from page 56 or 56% in your Kindle.
Here's page 56 of Transcription by Kate Atkinson.
I wanted to give you a feel for how the transcriptions were written in the book - so I took a picture (I'm not the world's best photographer - forgive all the shadows). It shows the transcription by Juliet of the conversation between the spy and the unwitting informers.
I have done a review, for those of you who're interested to read further.
This looks like such an interesting book. Thanks for mentioning it. :-)
I do like the 'between darkness and daylight' line!
Here is my Friday Post! Have a great weekend!
I have loved some books by this author, so now I'm intrigued. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.
Sounds very interesting. I do like the second cover best. :-) Happy weekend!
Sounds like an interesting story. This week I am featuring a historical mystery - A Dangerous Duet by Karen Odden. Happy reading!
I'm so intrigued by this one! Thanks for sharing! Hope you have a great weekend! :)
I'd really like to read this. Thanks for steering me to this one.
My Friday 56 from Fairest
I've been curious about this book. Thanks for sharing it!
I am sure I would love this too. In fact I am adding it to my TBR right now. My book is called 1968 Do you remember that year?
I too, prefer the second cover option. I do like a cover which in some way reflects the title and premise of a book, and the first option for 'Transcription' rather eludes me!
I have to admit to being probably one of the few people who have never read a Kate Atkinson book before, but this one is already pulling me in, so might well be a good starting place for me.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend :)
The premise certainly intrigues me. Happy Reading.
