Love how Silva can tie such different plots together in a single coherent story
Quick pace ... Linkages to older stories ... not the same old story line
George Guidall sets the standard for narrators.
Ken Follett did a remarkable job blending the complex politics in Europe leading up to the First World War with an entertaining story told through some well developed characters. While I have studied Military History, I didn't have enough appreciation for the political dynamics (and hubris of European leaders) that led the world reluctantly into war.
John Lee does a solid job of narrating the story.
The story was entertaining, but as a retired Army Officer and Army brat, the author's description of Army life was ridiculous. 12 high schools? moving to places that we have no military installations. A MP that is trained like a special forces soldier? Found it distracting. That said, the story was interesting and I enjoyed it.The narrator isn't one of my favorites. His voice is a bit monotonous and he isn't able to effectively differentiate characters. Not sure I will buy a book again that he narrates
