Ken rewrites history to suite his views. He is crazy. I've listened to the whole series and he honestly gets a little crazier in each book. Here's an idea....how about a book written from a neutral perspective based on facts. Book one was entertaining, book two still good but goes a little more left. Book three he looses all credibility in my opinion. His writing style is quite good but he needs to keep his opinions to himself. When I read historical fiction I expect it to be based on fact not completely rewritten to suite an agenda.
Ken never leaves a dull moment. I enjoy each and every book. Thank you for entertaining me so many times.
I listened to the first book and will listen to the last. This book gave me so much to consider and ponder over. The willingness of so many to risk so much. May we be as heroic and willing to stand against humanity's evils today.
Absolutely loved every minute of this audiobook. Ken Follett is one of my favorite writers and he's done it again with this book, and it's predecessor. This is a cliché but it makes history come alive.
The narrator was superb!
What a silly question.
I debated reading instead of listening to the second in this series. I could not, however, deprive my self of John Lee's brilliant narration. He is a master. Once again I felt as though I was a witness to history. However, I could not help but feel that some events were rushed and others were left out. Keeping in mind that the material is endless and the stories infinite I was again captivated by Follet. I loved the heroic and despised the villainous. I sat parked in my car at my destination to finish chapters. I just down loaded the next book.
