This is the type of book that you just can't put down. I got this over the xmas break from work.I found that I didn't want to stop listening because the character buildup along with plot were so interesting , I felt I was part of the story.As in sports , this book had momentum and never looked book. I enjoyed the narrator and the Scotish dialect kept me on a pace that was non stop. I highly recommnend this book .This is my third book from Ken Folett and can't wait as his chain of great books never seem to end.
Very few novelists can switch from a male frame of mind to a female frame of mind and write well from that perspective. Follett seems to be one of the few who can. This book was well written and enjoyable, although the science could have been better explained. There were a few minor flaws in the plotting, but at the end you care about the characters, and that made the book worthwhile.
I was terribly disappointed in this book. I always look forward to reading Follet's books, but this was just tedious. I can't believe I even bothered to finish it.
Love all Ken Follett books. This was a great story and I really liked the narrator
Great suspense and the character development was really good
Follett Is one my favorite authors but this is by far my least favorite book he has ever written. He is a sensitive but exciting writer that appeals to both men and women. This book however was a total chick book and the whole cell phone issue was just silly. Move the setting to an area without cell reception or set it in a time prior to cell phones for gods sake.
Saying that he is still a great author... Just would not recommend this book.
