Given what an interesting life Elizebeth led, this is a boring biography with little emotional engagement.

Enthralling look at the cochineal bug which makes red dye. Interesting for everyone not just those interested in natural dyes. People fought and died for this stuff. A good read and a fine example of the micro history trend.

When hired by an eccentric millionaire to tease out secret messages in Shakespeare's plays, Elizebeth discovered a hidden talent for code breaking. During WWI and WWII, Elizebeth and her husband William both became the premier experts, and key players in the fields of cryptanalysis.

Although this book was well written and engaging, I felt like I had read this book, or a similar one before. Both Elizebeth and William's lives were utterly fascinating. It was intriguing to read about both their successes and failures. Overall, 4 out of 5 stars.… (mais)
