The plot that concluded the story
Good voice effects
the characters were a little over done...some were like comic book characters...unintended, but almost funny and from central casting
I missed this Ken Follet book along the way but sure was glad I found it. His characters are outstanding and the story, as usual, a winner.
I was introduced to Ken Follett with Pillars of the Earth and have been a fan ever since. I have mostly listened to his stories and the performances of Michael Page, on this story and John Lee on others are both top notch.
I find a common formula in all of Follett's stories where there is a protagonist who endures heartbreaking struggles and a villain who unfairly seems to thrive and supporting entourages of characters in the continuum between them.
A Dangerous Fortune explores honour, courage, deceit, love and loyalty. Some of my favorite Follett stories take longer to develop a bigger cast of characters and more complex plot, but this one does it in about 16 hours, which was long enough in this case. Like I said before, it is not my favorite Follett book, but I am running out of choices and he is such a good story-teller that any of his are worth hearing
The world and banking history.
The plot was compelling and interesting.
The mother trying to push the trunk into the sea.
I didn't have any extreme reactions but it proves that what goes around comes around.
I would like to read more books like this one.
This book is a story of class, status, and family rivalries in late 19th Century England. The intrigue of a secret the boys from a boarding school share all their lives runs throughout. It was a real "page turner". Well done. The narrator was easy to understand and did a fairly good job of creating different voices for the characters. I would choose this narrator again.
Well done, fabulous characters. Follett at his best. This is his stride, he hits the mark . Much more believable than his bible length histories.
It's the total package of a story line and narration!
The final chapter ties it all together where good people triumph over evil mongrels.
Excellent character portrayals
This was an awesomely written and told book. The characters pull you in all the way to the end. When the story is over you want the story to continue. Must listen to this one!
Yes, very good story set in a historical era with lots of twists.
The scene where the good lady struggles to get the suitcase with 'the body' over the rail of the boat. Very vivid and easy imagined
Yes, I couldn't wait to get back to it!
This was a very enjoable read with memorable characters and vivid events throughout. Highly recommdnded.
