We loved this book. Follett is a straight forward and hugely inventive story teller. The characters are on the broad end but totally engaging. It is wonderful to have history tied in with human lives you care about, made up or not. Familiar and not familiar events from World War I are mixed in with infidelity, loyalty, class, bravery, stupidity and love of Russian, German, English, and American characters. And Welsh, lest we forget. Talk of " the sweep of history". John Lee populates this world with individual voices that become instantly recognizable. He is a wizard. I am crushed that Book 2 is not done yet. I will be first in line in 2012 when Audible puts it out.
