Shelf Control 02/08/16

Tuesday, 2 August 2016

This is a weekly feature that I will be posting on a Tuesday, where I will be spotlighting a book that I have on my shelves that I haven't read. This is a great idea for a weekly post, as I have loads of unread books, and i find it really interesting to read why others have purchased and want to read certain books!! This is hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies.

This Week's Book:

Title: Enigma
Author: Robert Harris
Published: 1995
Pages: 372

Synopsis: A gripping World War II mystery novel with a cryptographic twist, Enigma's hero is Tom Jericho, a brilliant British mathematician working as a member of the team struggling to crack the Nazi Enigma code. Jericho's own struggles include nerve-wracking mental labor, the mysterious disappearance of a former girlfriend, the suspicions of his co-workers within the paranoid high-security project, and the certainty that someone close to him, perhaps the missing girl, is a Nazi spy. The plot is pure fiction but the historical background, Alan Turing's famous wartime computing project that cracked the German U-boat communications code, is real and accurately portrayed. Enigma is convincingly plotted, forcefully written, and filled with well drawn characters; in short, it's everything a good technomystery should be. -Goodreads
How/When I Got It:  
I bought this novel in a bind-up with Archangel another of Harris' novels from a charity shop about 4 years ago. 

Why I Want To Read It:
I bought it because I wanted to read some of Harris' works, and it has sat untouched on my shelves for 4 years. However now that I've read the blurb again, I definitely want to pick it up soon, who doesn't love a WWII mystery novel!!

Happy Reading!!
