I am retired and am busier than when I had a full time career. I don't get time to read; but my Ipod fills the gap.
This book held my interest from the beginning. The twists and turns along with the differences between the aristocracy and the "common" people was intriguing.
I really liked listening to this book. I found it riveting in the twists and turns it takes. It is a bit like a soap opera in how the characters struggle against each other, with themselves and with the circumstances of their lives. I found it hard to put down and would have listened to the whole thing in one sitting, if I'd had the time! The narrator is superb and does all the voices very well. Even women's voices were distinguishable despite his normally deep voice. He's also really good with different accents. Overall a very enjoyable "read".
always looking for my next 'driveway' book
When you've just finished 'Pillars of the Earth and World without End' the bar is set pretty darn high.
I was not disappointed.
Clearly not written by a new author, this book has all the hallmarks of a master author with some practice under his belt. Plot lines are interesting and characters are well-developed. Very enjoyable.
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
