I commute over 100 miles a day to and from my office. The book was exciting and captivating. I couldn't wait to get in my car each morning and evening for my hour drive home. My wife recommended Ken Follett to me last year and this is his third book I have read. I am looking forward to his next one. Michael Page performed superbly as the narrator.
I couldn't wait to listen. Great narration, interesting story, well developed characters
"A Dangerous Fortune" was an excellent listen. This one qualifies as a good old fashioned "Garage Book." (Garage Book: I pull into the garage and can't get out of my car and stop listening!). The reader, Michael Page, was excellent; he was clear, has a pleasant voice, and was not overlay dramatic. He was everything I enjoy in a reader. All in all, I loved this book and recommend it highly!
My first experience was Pillars of the Earth followed by World without End and then every non espionage novel of his that I could find... I have not been disappointed...
This is a very well crafted book with strong characters and a very good plot. This is my first Ken Follett novel so I cannot comment on how similar the plot is to his other novels. This narrator is terrific. I read this book in two installments driving from Santa Fe to Sedona and back and was never bored. Highly recommended.
This story's plot-line was similar to his "Pillars of the Earth" novel but it was set in the late 19th century. The narrator is good and I enjoyed the story but I don't think that I will be listening to anymore of his books.
