We look back on history with nostalgia, but this series makes you realize just what kinds of upheaval the world has gone through in the 20th century . It's an excellent read and I'm looking forward to the third book.
I had forgotten just how much I enjoy epic novels by Ken Follett. This was my first one on audible, but can't wait to start listening to the others I have read in the past.
Excellent writing and superb audio. Put me into the middle of everything that occurs. Felt as if I was living that moment.
This book is fast moving and exciting. I love the characters and was so glad they extended from the 1st book in the series. This has helped me have a greater understanding of WWII and an overall understanding of history. I especially like how the author gives a global perspective. The narrator is a genius and has perfected dozens of complicated accents. I highly recommend this audio book!!
Of an even more fantastic book. I have listened to his first one in this trilogy and was hooked from the beginning. Now I am on to the next. Happy reading.
Though everyone in all the various families of the world powers conveniently have political interests or connections I found this book thoroughly engrossing. Listened for hours at a time.
I heard stories like those told in this book throughout my childhood. History books tell us "what " happened, but this wonderful series tells us how it "felt" . Priceless!
