I was so sad!! I have been waiting for this book to be released for over a year because I just loved the first one! Sadly it is just not as good of a story line and the characters are not as interesting as they were in the first book. But I listened to every minute of it because I feel Ken Follett will come back and wow us with the third in the series! Don't worry Jonh Lee...still love ya!!
I have listened to over 300 audio books and this still ranks highest for narration in my opinion! Story is great also! One of the best in my library!
I don't know who deserves the two thumbs up more, the author or the narrator.When I bought this I thought this would not be the kind of book I would usually listen to and 40hrs and 54min seemed kinda long but I LOVED IT! The story and the narrator just draw you in and you just can't stop listening.I went on to buy World Without End(45hrs and 38min.) and loved it also. Great writing and narration, best best buy for your money.
Very sad and too realistic.Good twist at the end. If you are trying to decide between this book and Every Last One (also by Anna Quindlen) I would go with Every Last One. In this book I feel like the narrator is a little tedious but very clear and understandable.
I thought the book and the narrator started off a little slow at the beginning but it was sure worth hanging in there to listen further. I hate it when people tell what happens in the story but I will say that I couldn't stop listening until the story was over and the narrator is now one I would like to listen to again.
I really didn't think this would be the kind of book I would like but I got the first chapter free through Audible and listening to it really spiked my interest. I bought the audio book and found it to be as fascinating as it was heartbreaking. It sure shows how our government continues to let us down and I think the SEC should have been completly been dismantled, it apparently is of no help to us anyway, who knows how many more Madoffs there are still out there.Two thumbs up to the author! One for trying to bring attention to the matter and one for writting such a interesting book about it. Hope to hear more from you!
I think this should be required reading for every middle school and high school student. I also think it should be part of every young drug offender program. I have heard so many parents that say they just don't know what they would be able to do if their kids got involved in drugs.Maybe if the kids could see it from the parents point of view they would understand that the parents care alot more than they think. Unfortunately there are very hard questions with very few answers.Good luck to all parents in this situation.
After I had bought this I wondered if I really wanted to hear about them building a cannal but when I listened to it I found it very intresting. Both author and narrator did a great job of making the story both intresting and informative.
I loved this book! Couldn't stop listening until I heard the whole story. Good job! Will definitely listen to it again. Hope to see other books on audible by this author.
Jodi, What happened! Did you run out of printing ink? What happened to the end of the story? The rest of the story was great. I'm guessing there will be a part two to give it a ending. We don't listen for 20 hours not to have a ending!
