I would make it a complete story and not a cliff-hanger. I think the author is cheating his readers by leaving the story with no end.
Sure - I have to read the next book to find out what happens. Pretty sneaky, Mr. McCammon, no?
I love this narrator. I actually searched for other authors he reads and plan to get some of them as well.
Kit Harrington who plays Jon Snow in "The Game of Thrones" series on HBO would be perfect! Or Benedict Cumberbatch ("Sherlock"), who might be a bit too old for the role but could probably pull it off!
Was disappointed in the length and limit to the story. Makes me think the author is "pulling a fast one" in order to secure the guaranteed sale of his next book.
I always enjoy how Ken Follett weaves his characters into history. I didn't like some of the situations he put his characters in. Some of it was unnecessary to the plot. There were times when I could predict exactly what was going to happen to a character, and those predictions didn't have anything to do with the real history that was taking place.
The political history of the USSR.
I could listen to John Lee for hours. What amused me is that there is a child called "John Lee" in the book - and I could almost imagine the narrator's delight whenever he read his own name. I almost wonder if Mr. Follett gave the character that name on purpose, since John Lee has narrated so many of his books.
I think so - I needed closure on the other two books. I will say that of the trilogy - this was my least favorite.
This may sound terrible - but there wasn't enough tragedy in the story. These people went through some of the worst periods in history and came out relatively unscathed. Everyone lived happily ever after for the most part - and that was a bit unrealistic, IMO.
