The Rose Code Book Review by Richard CummingsIn this book review of The Rose Code by Kate Quinn, I will give you questions that you need to answer to determine if this is the right book for you.

I have never taken this approach with my book reviews before but it sounds like a unique and effective way to determine if a book is meant for you to read.

Why might this approach be effective? Well, I can tell you that I really enjoyed The Rose Code by Kate Quinn, so much so that I intentionally read more slowly than usual just so I would not reach the ending too soon.

So, obviously, I love this book.

But there are wonderful books out there that are not so wonderful if you are not down with the content. Someone could pen an incredible book called The Star Trek Manifesto and I could tell you right now that it would hold zero interest for me.

So, will this wonderful book — The Rose Code by Kate Quinn — be of interest to you?

Let me hit you up with some questions so you can easily make that determination.

The Rose Code by Kate Quinn: Is it right for you?

Answering the questions below will help you determine whether The Rose Code is worth your time and mental expenditure? Will your effort’s be rewarded? Here’s your simple question-quiz:

Have you read, and did you enjoy, a book by Kate Quinn called The Alice Network?

If yes, go buy this book now – you’ll love it.

Are you taken by all things World War I?

The Rose Code is all about the engagingly eccentric people who worked in a secret place called Bletchley Park decrypting German messages during WWII. Any WWII devotees will enjoy devouring this book.

Do you like stories of intelligent, intriguing, women?

The Rose Code, at its core, is about the special relationship formed by 3 extraordinary women who work at Bletchley Park. I have no doubt you’ll love this book if you enjoy stories of accomplished women.

I could go on with the questions but I think you have a good idea already as to whether you are someone who will love this book.

The Rose Code by Kate Quinn: My Conclusions

I kid you not — I did read this book intentionally more slowly than I’m accustomed to because I did not want it to end.

I picked it up because of my affinity for anything related to World War II. I would have liked The Rose Code simply based on its premise, on its storyline. People breaking German war codes in WWII — that’s a fascinating tale to tell.

But, it’s how the author Kate Quinn tells the story, and the characters she develops, that takes the book to a whole new level.

The three heroines of the book are named Mab, Osla, and Beth. I miss them already … and I’ve only just finished the book this morning.

On the Amazon page for this book, The Rose Code has been given an average of 4 ½ stars by more than 8,000 people.

I’m pretty sure that you’ll be equally satisfied.
