Billie. He was witty and kind.
No, I have not listed to John Lee before.
No extreme emotions, but I did find the book very interesting.
I enjoyed getting a glimpse of the world during WW I.
Yes, this is such a great story and I really like the story line and the characters.
Audible is the best thing since sliced bread..
I have been through two of Folletts other novels. Pillars of the earth and World without endd.
I was expecting something along those lines. It was very different and I stopped after a couple hours. Just didnt catch my interest.
YES, I can enjoy this while I drive. It's the reason I do audio books
Aviator, or Howard Hughes. Both stories are captivating.
G Peshkov, how he changed with the times.
The Earl, he did keep his empire going.
I've read all this from the historical perspective and I know what is comming but this is still a great read!
I would recommend it to anyone studying history and wanting a better understanding of WWI and its ramifications in the world today.
Its a saga for sure. Several years ago on a long road trip we listened to a series of academic lectures on WWI, which definitely helped me put the characters adn siguations in perspective.
People getting dressed just so before going out. Who does that any more? I recently attended a women's business conference and most of the attendees were not in business clothes. I think our culture needs to take a turn back to better clothes and grooming.
Interesting times ahead.
Thank you for inviting me to participate. Enjoyed the book.
Great story, great window in to the history around WWI, great, great performance
John Lee was amazing
Gives one a perspective of historical events.
I think he does great character voices
The war/battle segments are very compelling
Pillars of the Earth is similar. The research was equally fantastic and both stories held my interest from the start.
He is an amazing narrator - the accents were flawless - and his voice !!!-- ahhhh - he could read the phone book!!!!
It made me laugh and cry. The characters were so well-developed - and reading about WW1 from the points of view of Germans, Russians, Americans and British was really an eye-opening experience.
Just downloaded Book 2 and I can't wait to listen.
I would and have recommended this audiobook to several friends based not only on the enjoyment that I had in the novel itself but in John Lee's narration of it. I am a hard core fan of both gentelemen. Follett, always and outstanding author, has put together a story that follows families from both sides of WWI that intertwines their lives in a historically correct accounting of that era as well as conditions of each of the social strata that he involves. In turn, John Lee narrates it utilizing his talents in taking on each part as if he were that person, right down to the accents, voice and emotion. "Fall of the Giants" follows the pattern of writing, accuracy and narration of both of these men just as "Pillars of the Earth" and "World Without End" . Can't wait for the next of this series, "Winter of the World" to continue this story!
No one part is my favorite, it take it all to make the story complete
Same as with liking that best-Follett protrays it all so well, there is not any way to make a choice
Title is perfect, wouldn't call it another -just would not be the perfect title that it has!
