    (298)

    On a bright September morning in 1939, two days after Britain declares war on Germany, a group of privileged but desperate people gather in Southhampton to board the largest, most luxurious airliner ever built - the Pan American Clipper - bound for New York.

    Would you try another book from Ken Follett and/or Tom Casaletto?

    Yes, because I have enjoyed every other book by Follett. However, if this were the first one I listened to, it would be my last.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I liked reading about the Pan Am Clipper.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His English accents were not at all believable and his reading was not interesting.


    What character would you cut from Night over Water?

    If I could only cut one character, I would cut Mark. I think that was his name, the thief who is on the ship under a false passport.


    Any additional comments?

    I almost feel that Follett didn't write this book, perhaps he hired an aspiring college student. It is immature and silly.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    "Wonderful!"
    Overall

    This was the best Audible book I have ever listened to and there have been a few! The narrators were exceptional and made listening to this book almost like attending the theater. I felt like I was there with them.
