I really enjoyed this book. I wondered if I would struggle with believing the protagonist Gwendolyn could do what she was doing, but the author made it believable. The narrator did a fine job of performing the voices and really delivering the emotions the characters were feeling without beingnannoying. This was a fun escape.

So you want to be a spy?
Any additional comments?
For unusual reasons, this is one of the BEST spy novels I have ever encountered. It's firmly in my top 10.
The story is eerily believable, and the characters are fantastic! Narration is top notch, and I appreciated the female narrator given the female protagonist.
This tale, very unusually, gives you some idea of what it would be like to go from your normal life to full-on spy, whether you wanted to or not. "The Cruelty" refers to the cruel nature of espionage, and you feel every bit of it through the main character. I have never encountered a spy book that looks at things from this perspective. It's very well done, and the sequel is great, too. Highly recommended.
