The story is captivating from the start. It is a moving portrayal of the relationship between society ladies and their maids, wrapped up in an engaging and thrilling personal story.
I am a science enthusiast and enjoy reading about scientific topics. This presentation of the periodic table, covering anecdotes and stories about the interaction of various elements with the real world, is a must read for anyone interested in learning about general science.
The narrrator was clear and had good tone and articulation.
I really enjoyed the story. As in other books, Ken Follett is great at characterization and you can really feel the book's heroes and villains come alive. The multiple plots, twists, and points of view are always entertaining and keep you listening. The setting in 19th century England is interesting, and it provides good insight into the banking world.
I bought this audiobook for a little light entertainment in the car. It blew me away. It is smart, very entertaining, and really makes you think about making positive life changes, better than any cheesy self-help book. The writing is witty and funny, the narrator is fluent and not at all monotonous. I will definitely buy it in text form from Kindle, though, so that I can go over some parts with more pause and detail.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about the human mind and our incredible natural abilities.
The book is an astounding portrait of the psychopath, with lengthy descriptions of how they act, how they think, and how they see the world. The author clearly knows what he is talking about and the narrator is fluent with excellent diction and tone.
The multiple examples are engaging and easy to relate to.
I did find it a little repetitive towards the end.
My main dissatisfaction, though, stems from the book's inconclusiveness. The author paints this very detailed picture of this major problem but then offers little practical advice on how to deal with it both as individuals or as a society. I would have liked more concrete advice.
