I didn't know what to expect with this audio, but it was Ken Follett and I thought it might be interesting. It was great! Most of the books he mentioned I had already read, but the ones I hadn't I noted down, and got them on Audible.com! His speaking style is very entertaining and the discussion was very interesting.
Yes, this is something you want to listen to in one sitting; however, I listened on my commute to work, so it took me a couple of days.
I will definitely read this book again. The characters are rich and deep. The setting, 1150AD is an unusual setting for a book. I found it very interesting the discussions not only of the cathedral architecture, but the domestic architecture as well. Ken Follett does a wonderful job of highlighting and exploring human character. Now the characters are like old friends.
John Lee has a deep rich voice but still has the capacity to make subtle changes to delineate characters. His voice wraps around the unfolding plot like a warm blanket on a cold winter night.
I loved the forward by Ken Follett explaining his impetus for writing the book and his challenges in completing it. I want to listen to this again so I can get the book on cathedral architecture he read. If he liked it, it has to be good!
