The saving grace was the bits about the airplane itself. Found myself doing a little research after finishing the listen.
I had read this book when it was first published and remembered it was good but couldn't remember the story. It was very enjoyable.
The dramatic tension built by the timing of the story, most of which occurred in a 24-hour period.
His voice was non-intrusive but carried enough emotion to avoid being deadpan.
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.
