The story takes place just as WWII was breaking out, and the maiden voyage of a new Amphibious Clipper Plane, and it's excentric variety of passengers, and crew. It is a fast read, and keeps you glued! Fun read
This is a book I have read several times and the audio version is just as good. The narrator could use more inflection but is ok.
Another success by Ken Follett; I could hardly stop listening and intend to listen again soon. Like all Ken Follett, there are many characters but easy to keep track of and the story keeps you engrossed. The subject of these pre-war planes that landed on water made for interesting fiction, and the narrator did an outstanding job, but he had good material to work with.
