    I was hoping to gain some more information on what is and what is not fictional in the interview but I may need to do my own research. I was disappointed that Ken Follett wasn't aware of John Lee; I've listened to a number of John Lee's narrations and greatly admire his talent so I felt a bit slighted for my "friend."
