Customer Reviews

For me Transcription was a return to the Kate Atkinson I love best. I confess to not finishing A God in Ruins but have loved everything else she's ever written, including short stories. Juliet Armstrong narrates throughout and in 1940 she is truly an innocent when she's recruited into MI5. In the 50s she's working for the BBC, but finds she can never really escape MI5. The tone is delightfully light, frothy and comic but there is also pathos, humanity and empathy in this novel. It has pace and twists, classic Atkinson. Now I'm ready for the return of Jackson Brodie ...
