    Red Notice is a searing expose of the wholesale whitewash by Russian authorities of Magnitsky's imprisonment and murder, slicing deep into the shadowy heart of the Kremlin to uncover its sordid truths.

    Story

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

    Overall

    This book easily gets on my top ten list. I have been listening for a long time with over 300 books downloaded from various sources.

    I am not sure whether it's better than "Pillars of the Earth", but it's irrelevant because I'd recommend to get them both.

    "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", a short story from The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling, is about the adventures of a valiant young mongoose.

    "Kids loved it."
    Overall

    Great story, great narration. Kids absolutely loved it. Can't beat the price, but I'd still get it if it wasn't free.

And a girl is born from a brutal rape, her destiny mysteriously linked to Barty and the man who stalks him.

    Ric says: "Great Book"
    "Waste of bandwidth."
    Overall

    There are way better books than this one. For starters, the plot is boring and predictable. The characters are either extremely bad or just as extremely angelic to such a degree that they come across as fake cartoons. I listened to the end, but only because I had nothing else to listen to at the moment.

    The whole idea of existence of multiple parallel world created by people's choices is presented a bit out of place to be the central theme of the story.

    The author also attempted to involve a number of racial and religious issues. These do not seem to fit in a fictional novel.

    Some books are written to get a point of view across, some are written strictly for entertainment value. This book... is worthless.
