Worthy, but I just couldn t get into this one Characters didn t grab me, plot didn t grab me, and half way through I realized I had zero interest in finding out what happened So I stopped reading It s rare for me to do that with a book Sorry. A new perspectiveA yarn about art and war with a new slant If you want to knowabout the history of these women and their activities read another book Good on character short on plot until near the end Recommend imperial war museum web site where you can see many of the paintings which the author so clearly describes. This book did not really grip me I don t know why it was described as a thriller. A great read. Warpaint is a historical fiction book based around the time of WW2, but instead of focusing on the men at war, Warpaint introduces to four women, each a really well written, strong female character Starting at Bletchley Park, we meet Vivienne, a part of Black , a team that uses propaganda to attempt to distract the opposition Embroiled in an affair with a German who is now trying to help the opposition, Vivienne has to try and figure out if all is as it seems at Black s headquarters The othe Warpaint is a historical fiction book based around the time of WW2, but instead of focusing on the men at war, Warpaint introduces to four women, each a really well written, strong female character Starting at Bletchley Park, we meet Vivienne, a part of Black , a team that uses propaganda to attempt to distract the opposition Embroiled in an affair with a German who is now trying to help the opposition, Vivienne has to try and figure out if all is as it seems at Black s headquarters The other three female characters are soon introduced, three artists who are hired by the WA AC to make uplifting momento s of the wartimes goings on to boost the morale of the country All three of these women live very different lives Laura, an older lady finding her everyday life mundane and wants to tackle somethingchallenging, Cecily, a young woman from a well off family whose fianc is away at war, and Faith, on the run from her husband with his secrets in in fear of him finding her I really enjoyed the fact that I wasn t reading one story, but four, and yet they all came together at the end to bring it back to one story I did find myself preferring one or two of the women s storiesthan the others, and for me this then made the book feel like it was slowed down, and I found myself rushing through some of the chapters as I felt they were long drawn out and I just wanted to find my way back to some of theexciting storylines Throughout the book, not all the characters are fictional, and some of them were actual historical figures, which gave the bookmeaning as you know some of the people were real, or the events really happened, and it gave the book an edge, something to think about I even found myself doing some research on some of the bits and pieces that I read to understand them evenThe mix of fiction and non fiction was done really well and created a very interesting story to read I did enjoy Warpaint, I just felt there were a few slow parts, especially in the middle, that made it slightly hard to read, especially if this isn t the kind of book you would usually go for, but the characters and the ending of the book really made up for it
