Lover of good ideas
Ken Follett has to be one of the best writers of our time. This is another novel that is rich in character development, story line, suspense, the opposition of good and evil and characters that face moral choices that affect others in the novel.
Well worth the read.
I have read Night over water sever times (in two languages) and I loved it.
The narrator, however does such a poor job that I just wanted to stop listening several times.
It is hard to follow when a scene (or even a sentence) ends and when the next one starts. It almost feels a machine is reading the story, not an actual person.
Very disappointed with the narrator, but I still love the book.
NO! If I was into futuristic books and Tom Casaletto was the robot in there, maybe.
Five minutes in I was afraid that I had wasted a credit. The characters show their flaws- racism and otherwise; however there are people like that everywhere. The gems in this book were those who stood up for the right things. I really liked it.
I'm a retired nurse and my husband owns a machining company. We live in a small town 30 miles East of San Diego. We love to cruise!
This was not my favorite Follett book but kept me entertained. The characters were mildly interesting. I kept imagining I was watching an old movie. I think they should have gotten a better reader though. Someone British who does a good American accent. It is quite annoying to hear a bad British accent that sounds just like an Australian accent.
I love travel adventures, great characters, intrigue and technical stuff. This had it all. It could easily be compared to Murder on the Orient Express except played out in the classic PanAm Clipper over the Atlantic in Pre-WW2. Loved it!
Narrator was one of the worst I've heard on audible. The story was entertaining enough but the reading definitely detracted from the experience. i will go out of my way to not purchase any other books read by this narrator.
I was originally worried that the book was old and dated, but I was wrong. It could have been written yesterday. The author is obviously a best selling giant in the publishing world and with good reason. This book is a period piece set at the opening of World War Two in Europe and deals with the real life Pan Am Clipper. There are several stories running simultaneously that keep the reader's attention. The book lends itself to audio very well and the narrator does an outstanding job. I always like to read books where I learn things even if the book is a novel. I learned a great deal about the Pan Am Clipper and the book inspired me to do some more digging on the subject. The characters in the book were all plausible and well fleshed out. The story lines were all resolved and left me satisfied about the ending. This book wasn't so detailed that the story bogged down as it does sometimes in some of those 30 hour historical novels. There was enough description to give you a nice mental image and it moves the story along. I can say that this novel was good informative entertainment.
The story was well written and the narrator was excellent.
The characters were well developed and enjoyable. Very good ending.
