    " Very intriguing story of a British con man turned spy (seemingly for the Nazis, but actually a double agent for the British). Best part of it involved a British magician helping him deceive the Nazis that he actually blew up a British airplane factory -- touted as a huge victory for German intelligence. Some very likeable and detestable characters in here (on both sides of the war effort, believe it or not). "

    " Not a shabby read. Some nicely detailed research through the first half but lost me halfway through with a rushed ending. It loses the suspense once you realize the tide of the war has turned and neither side has much to lose or gain with his exploits... "

    " I loved this book. The most fascinating book that I've read in the last year. The author tells the true story like a novel. It was easy to read, and quite a page turner for me. "

    " If this true story were made into a movie, it would seem so far fetched, it would make the James Bond and Mission Impossible movies seem realistic. What a fascinating part of history told be the people who made it. "

    " Just goes to reinforce my increasing understanding of how people are seldom all good or all bad. We are a confused mix of sin nature and conscience struggling to do what's right--Eddie Chapman rose to the challenge during World War II, and was extremely helpful in allowing the Allies to neutralize German offensive actions. Not gripping, but interesting. . . "

    " This was a good book for an espionage lover. It was non-fiction although mainly told in a story telling style that was very readable. Categorically it fits into biography as well as historical...and thriller when comes to escapades and plenty of crime and criminal activity. And a natural criminal can add alot to spying and sabotage. And yes, he gets caught at his professional...mainly petty crime, although robbery and safecracking get a little far out for petty crime. But this guy is so likeable. Few can stay angry with him for long. And the ladies? Oh, well, bigamy is a crime, too. Perhaps a better name would be Spy/Counterspy...and I don't know how many individuals could live this, let alone do it successfully. Actually I'd give a 3.5. For me the techniques and tools of the spy, the sabotage, etc. were too slowly detailed for me although some others might revel in getting to learn that aspect. And there was humor to offset the gravity; for instance in his strictly structured life as a trainee on an isolated farm in France, he developed a friendship with a piglet whom he named "Bobby." Bobby was also very intelligent and quickly became the hero's constant companion. Descriptions abound about his swimming, hiking, prodigal eating and defecating habits which the British were using to try to discover who this brilliant "Fritz" spy was, and his shadowy associate, Bobby, probably an assassin, were. And despite all efforts, they couldn't even find who this Bobby was with his great regal eating quantities and elephantine toilet habits! "

    " Remarkable! An incredible story of a "gentleman" crook who volunteered to spy for Germany's Abwehr then proceeded to double-cross them on behalf of the British MI5. Ben MacIntyre has done a great job of bringing Eddie Chapman back to life in the pages of this book - more fantastic than any spy thriller simply because it is true! "

    " Good! What makes it interesting is that it is a true story. Told in a very interesting way. Just couldn't get into it that easily. "

    " Nonfiction but written more like a mystery. Fascinating story of petty criminal turned double-agent in World War II. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 12/21/2013

    " A fantastic read and a most interesting insight into the spy activites of WWII. Truly fascinating stuff, with a lot of sidebar information that made me want to research some of those stories more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol Collier | 12/8/2013

    " Amazing story. Truly fulfills the statement that truth is stranger than fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 11/19/2013

    " A fun and exciting story of espionage, crooks and spies, that also happens to be true. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marilyn Elison | 10/26/2013

    " Very gripping story and a true one at that! But it is disgusting that he got away with so much and so many better men died in the war. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 9/8/2013

    " Fact really is stranger than fiction! There were so many interesting things that I learned from this book. It made me want to learn more. "

    " Interesting book about a double agent during WWII "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becka Stephens | 5/15/2013

    " so far loving this book. i am mildly obsessed with true stories of spies like Mata Hari or The Rosenbergs. Just finding out what made them do it, turn against their country and their people. This one though, wicked good I so far don't know who he is really spying for the British or the Nazis... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Reza Rahman | 5/13/2013

    " Thoroughly gripping read! Felt like I was present in person as the story unfolded. Remarkable true story. Will be of interest to anyone who enjoys a book full of twists and surprises "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Callaway | 5/9/2013

    " Completely absorbing. While it's nonfiction, it's told in narrative style. Zigzag might just be the most colorful character to come out of WWII. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carmen | 3/30/2013

    " this book was highly entertaining. Eddie Chapman is a scoundrel, who really came up to the plate when needed. I could just see how easy it was for someone who is used to drawing outside the lines to deal with the German bureaucracy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leofwin | 3/30/2013

    " This is a really great book. A gem. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith Jackson | 3/9/2013

    " Excellent true to life spy novel. I read all three of his WWII double cross books. Amazing the amount of energy that went into these schemes, and remarkable how effective they were. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allyson | 2/6/2013

    " An interesting biography about a facet of the British espionage effort during World War II, although not nearly as dramatically written as the title implies. It was a good commute book. "
