This was a good listen. I got very involved with the characters and look forward to the next book. Yes sometimes it was predictable and trite but for someone who really loves historical fiction, this was a treat.
This is a sort of interesting book but too wordy. And, I love coffee but I don't need to hear all the details. I'll keep the author on my list but it'll take awhile before I listen to another. Too many other better authors out there. Good narration though.
I looked forward to the final book of the trilogy. This one was interesting but not as good as the first two. However, because the "history" in this book occurred during my lifetime, I enjoyed relating to what the characters were experiencing.
As some reviewers have mentioned, Follett gets a little preachy sometimes and there are way too many graphic sex scenes. But all in all I recommend this book if you have already read the first two.
I've listened to both books in the series. Not bad. Good stories. I don't care so much for the narrator because I don't like how she does men's voices. She makes every man sound unpleasant and grouchy. Nonetheless, I'll listen again when there's another book in the series.
It was a good listen,probably true to what those who lived through WWI experienced. I really hope, though, that we get more Maisie Dobbs stories from Ms. Winspear.
I have really come to appreciate this series of stories with characters I care about and stories that are intriguing. Love the narrator.
I have read or listened to all of James Rollins books. This one is very hard to take mostly because of the narrator. Just terrible!! He totally detracts from the story and is making it very difficult to finish. Please get someone else next time. But please Not Scott Brick either!
I have read most of Douglas Preston's books. This one was kind of silly except when it was quite violent. Just not that good.
I've very much enjoyed all four books in the series. Lots of action, great narration.
I got the first of this series for free. It was so good I had to continue on. Very fast moving, The author's not afraid to make the Gray Man a little tough and hard to like sometimes. All in all, a great book. I'll move on to the next one.
I'm new to this series. I love historical fiction but this one just didn't really do much for me. It's ok but I doubt I will listen to any more. Seemed kind of slow and plodding. I would have liked more history mixed in as it does take place during WWI. Just not one of my favorites.
