This is a fascinating story and the weaving together of the characters is just fascinating. I have finished the first part, and 1/2 way through the 2nd, and it is so hard to put it down... Hey, this is my first audible book and it is sooo great. I sure that if you are looking for a fascinating story line with incredibly interesting protagonists, you will not be disappointed with this read...back to the book...
Hated for the story to end. While sleeping, I found myself even dreaming about Philip, Jack, Aliana and The Cathedral, and many of the other characters. This book is an awesome accomplishment! I'm now on to World Without End...
Intrigue, history, Greed, Lust, Courage, you name it this book has it.
The twists and turns of this book leave the reader waiting for the next twist of fate to happen. The 6 degree theory is very evident in this story, and I was glad that I read (listened) it. I loved the history, I loved the characters. After reading this I realized how sad it was that Henry VIII destroyed so much of the beautifully designed churches in England.
Well done, would highly recommend this for reading.
This is a superior novel to listen. The narrator has the wonderful ability to bring you in to the novel with his many different voices. This kept me captivated throughout the entire book. My first of Ken Follet... it won't be my last.
OUTSTANDING....this story catches your imagination from the first page...and 40 hours later it left me with wanting to hear more. I've just started the sequel to this great book. Thank you, Mr. Follett for the great books!
Who would have thought that a book that took place during medieval times could keep a self proclaimed techno-geek entertained. Once I started this book, I had a hard time putting it down. I listened while: riding my bike, walking, sitting on a plane, mowing the lawn, and doing yard work. Thoughly enjoyable and highly recommended (and I rarely write reviews).
