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.
Silly at times - plot typical of Follett - too much detail trying to convince reader of the implausible. Entertaining - but not believable.
Characters are one dimensional and STUPID, action is predictable. Perhaps this was an very early work by Follett but it was a big disappointment.
The narrator was great, his accents were flawless and the performance was good.
OTOH, for me, most of the book came off as a soap opera. Lots of "character development"
and "personal relationships" stuff and only action in the last hour or so of the book. OK if you like that sort of thing, but I personally prefer more action and less "character development".
Character development is necessary, but should not be central and I felt it was overdone in this book.
So I would rate this a buy if you like soap opera or romance but a "don't buy" if you are an action fan.
