The Alice Network Reviews

  • Lindsay - Traveling Sister

    2.5 stars. I'm disappointed in myself for not enjoying this more than I did. I really thought I would love this book, yet I barely even liked it.

    I really enjoyed learning about The Alice Network and that amazing piece of history involving female spies. These women were brave secret agents leading double lives during WWII aiding their country in uncovering highly classified information. These unsung heroes risked their lives as much as any soldier on the battlefield and I have so much admiration

    “Are you ever afraid?”

    “Yes, just like everybody else. But only after the danger is done—before that, fear is an indulgence. Welcome to the Alice Network.”

    Based on real characters and events, The Alice Network is a historical novel about two women who meet in 1947. Eve had been a spy in World War I. Charlie is a pregnant American in search of her cousin, Rose. Everyone assumes Rose died during WWII, but Charlie wants proof, which leads her to Eve.

    The story weaves back and forth between 1915 and

    Oh dear! I slogged through about 150 pages of this 500 page book before giving up. It purports to be historical fiction, set partly in 1915 and partly in 1947. I say purports, because just telling us the date won't really convince the reader, when a young woman in 1947 says "nice wheels" in reference to a car. And then back in 1915, writing about Folkestone and the refugees there, we are told that "more French and Belgian (was) heard on the docks than English". Belgian is a language? Who knew?

    “Facing a pistol-wielding murderer does tend to put parents further down the list of things to be intimidated by.”


    The Alice Network, to put it plainly, is too long a book for one of its two perspectives to not work for me. Most of my three star ratings are "I liked it, but...", though in this case it's more that I liked roughly half of the book and had to force myself not to skim through the other chapters.

    Many historical books use the perspectives of two characters more successfully than this ...more

    “Facing a pistol-wielding murderer does tend to put parents further down the list of things to be intimidated by.”

    ― Kate Quinn, The Alice Network

    This is a very short review, but I couldn't stay completely silent on this book. The Alice Network is excellent, and I might go so far as to say it is among my favorite this year, or even among my favorite historical fiction novels ever. It had everything I wanted - mystery, history, adventure, drama, romance, wit - and though it is quite long, I was n

    I was introduced to an aspect of war that I haven't read much about - espionage, and even less so to an aspect reflecting the courage and intelligence and iron will of women serving as spies during WWl. Two time frames are connected even though there are two different wars, through the character of Eve Gardiner . She meets Charlie St. Clair in 1947 and we become privy to Eve's fascinating and intriguing life as a spy in 1915 during WWI. Charlie is searching for her cousin Rose, who was living in
