Mr Patterson narration was so good it motivated me to keep on listening, but I got increasingly disappointed with the story line. I finally gave up after a few chapters. Even making allowances for the fact that this is fiction, I found it impossible to accept that anyone could behave as recklessly as Shakespeare does under the nose of the Spanish Inquisition, and not get either caught or denounced as traitor.

Daniel Silva never disappointed me. I liked all the books I've read or listened to. I hope to listen more from this excellent, super talented narrator.

Interesting plot, not at all predictable like so many of them. My first book by this author, but certainly will be listening to others. Jeff Woodman's narration is excellent! I hope to listen to many more of his performances.

I loved the funny descriptions of the tiime and money wasted on MBA-managed bean-counting bureacracy. Had belly laughs with the memoranda. I see the same thing in my professional life. I also enjoyed the descriptions of modern life through the eyes of characters from the past. Having a science background, I admire the idea of a link between quantum theory and parallel universes as the reason behind magic existence. I found the characters well constructed. I would have preferred a conventional ending, but I part of me enjoyed the open ending. In truth, this type of ending reflects real life better.

Another good thriller by Ken Follett. I loved LaVoy's narration and look foward to hear more books she narrates.

Decoding the performer's (cockney?) accent was doable but more trouble than it was worth.. Pity. I was curious about the book and wanted to liste to it.

great narration. entertaining and well constructed plot. I prefer romantic comedies that do waste my time with detailed descriptions of sexual encounters.

Instead of the stellar, impeccable narration I was expecting when I read the narrators’ names, I was unpleasantly surprised by ear-splitting background noise. Perhaps some people like this, but definitely not for me.

2 main characters have unrealistic 19th century mentalities and behaviors. author could have develop the plot much better. As always, Rosalyn Landor's stellar performance saves the audiobook.
