Although I admire the author for her incredible bravery, I thought the book was a little unorganized. The author jumped from past to present, and included some very French references that I was not familiar with. All in all, it's an interesting book, just not an outstanding one.

Would you consider the audio edition of Outwitting the Gestapo to be better than the print version?
I didn't read the print version, but I would probably have preferred the print over the audio because of the strong British accent of the reader. It should have been read with a French accent.
What did you like best about this story?
It was amazing that she was able to pull it off without getting caught.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Nadia May?
Only if it were a British story. Her accent was all wrong for this story. It would have been much better read by someone with a French accent.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
The accent was distracting from the story. I had to keep telling myself to listen to the story not the accent.
The story of a very extraordinary, courageous young mother made ordinary in the telling. Very interesting but her natural modesty ruins the effect. It turns out to sound mundane whereas it could not possibly have been so.
The rendition is perfectly good but the whole package is a bit of a bore. I feel guilty in saying so.
This should be a very interesting subject but I found the book to be very disjointed and hard to follow. I have given up before the end!
