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.
Great story, suspenseful, clever and interesting! A short story which reminds us how the war touched so many in so many different unexpected ways.
I thoroughly enjoy this listen -- I liked the well-constructed plot, although I knew where it was going. But the narration put it over the top -- so well done. Overall, I'd rate this as one of the more enjoyable books, but not at the top.
I might have laid out fewer story-line cues so that the listener wouldn't get too far ahead of the plot.
This was the first John Lee I've heard. I'll be on the lookout for others.
When Harold's father lied to protect Harold. It went against his beliefs and the love for his son became more important.
I do recommend this book. It's a wonderful listen -- lots of detail, which I liked because I it gave me clearer images in my mind. If you're not a fan of detail, I wouldn't recommend this book.
