It was a well-laid out plan for Romney's Presidency. I learned much about this man's view on foreign-policy and economics. Something the mainstream news media will not report on.
Vision for America!
I wanted to educate myself on the 2 Presidential candidates. This was a great book to learn about Romney's views and character as it relates to politics. Instead of writing about himself, like Obama's books do, Romney provides solutions for America.
Wonderful story with excellent narration. The characters were superb! The story isof a society that is long-gone. It is told through one of the servants and her sense of duty is key.
All the times Grace would be in the present reflecting back on her life at Riverton - it was very real.
Great book to listen to and imagine what life would have been like in England in the 1910s and 1920s.
When the main character thinks she is hiding her lover's wife and children.
The accents and emotional tone
This book explores the personal reaction of women left on the homefront in a chaotic war, that affects their city. The story is told with no jedgement through the eyes of the main character.
Yes. It has a wide cast of characters that continues from The Fall of Giants. I do not think the characters are as interesting as The Fall of Giants but it is still an awesome book.
Following the lives and circumstances of the characters during WWII
The distinct voice of the characters.
History as told through the lives of passionate characters.
Yes, it is an imaginative enjoyable story
Variety of what was happening in the story. Lots of mystery.
He is Odd Thomas to me!
To get the most of this book, read the Odd Thomas series in order.
It reaffirmed my belief to stay in the present but did not explain spirituality well. The author talked in circles. The format was to answer structured questions but the answers never seemed to come! This book could have been shortened dramatically and gotten the same point across.
Shortened it and not talk in circles.
The ideas are helpful as self-help but not spiritual enlightenment.
The story went into a different direction. Very believeable.
Yes - kept wanting to find out more
One of the best series of books I have listened to in years and years!
Would not listen to it again.
Performance was good
Loved the story idea but didn't get into the characters enough - seemed implausible.
This is the second time I have listened to it and enjoyed it just as much. I wanted to continue on with the series.
The main character Odd Thomas and the way the author weaves in the mystical with the real.
He has a great voice for Odd Thomas
No - just pleasurable to listen to.
I have listened to 3 books in the series a few years ago. I am re-listening to all again and enjoying the series again. Looking forward to those I haven't heard!
Yes. The audio version is like listening to a storyteller. It is easier to keep track of the characters listening rather than reading.
Walter Erlich. John Lee had the accent and tone of the character down pat!
Ethel Williams. She came from a loving family who was economically lower-class. She had the highs and lows of life. But had great moral character to make the correct decisions and had strength to become a leader, but the compassion to care for people!
Listeners will be enchanted by "The Fall of Giants." This is a great series. It is historical fiction during WWI. The author was true to history and wove a wonderful set of fictional characters, representative of real lives at the time. The characters represented extended families in 4 major countries, England, Germany, Russia and America. The political decisions of the time and the moral and family decisions were all included. Very fascinating! Ken Follett truly paid attention to all the details of people living in those countries and era. I didn't ant to series to end! Gratefully, I found he wrote a follow-up series to "The Fall of Giants", extending into time (WWII) and with the same characters and their families. This series is "The Winter of the World".
Great, Awesome Characters
The realism of life in America pre-Revolutionary war for immigrants.
great interpretaion of scottish accents
Love and Life
Very good story - I wanted it to continue with the characters lives.
