Love books...have been listening since the early days ...anything from Hemingway to Patterson, from Twain to Grisham, love them all
I would only recommend to someone who has not listened much to John Lee doing a Follett book. As an avid listener and follower of Follett, I found this book amazingly predictable and some of the characters reincarnated from other stories. Almost felt like he had a deadline with his editor so went total formula...
Not in the same league as his greats
No followup necessary, the character development was weak and corners cut...
I have listened to a number of titles by Ken Follett and enjoyed them all but I kind of got the feeling he was being paid by the word with this one. Early in the book there is a chapter where one of the characters is learning to fly a plane. The description of every little nuance went on so long that I forgot where I was in the story. The entire book is filled with sections like this that do more to take away from the action rather than add to it.
I didn't care for all the dialogue pertaining to engine and piloting and flying details, very technical. It lost my interest. But overall it was a great book. Plenty of mystery, intrigue, cat and mouse and all that good stuff.
I know that this is an older title, but Ken Follett's books are timeless. The book is set in WWII Denmark and involves the Danish Resistance. I give the book only four stars (meaning that it is good, just not outstanding) because the ending was a bit anti-climactic considering all the suspense leading up to it during the story. The reader did a good job and there was no "heavy breathing" into the mic as is the case in some of these narrations on Audible. I only gave him four stars because he didn't have a "voice" for each character as some of the best narrators do. I can't really say more without spoiling the story, but it was good and I'm glad I invested the credit and time in the book.
