an abridged feeling ...
i have read all of ken follett's books and have enjoyed every last one.i especially enjoy his 30 and 40 hour epics. these longer stories are packed with information a tribute to the research he must put into each . i find his shorter stories just as engrossing and enjoyable.
which brings me to "freedom" .things happen so quickly in this magnificent novel that the book almost had an abridged feeling about it. i would have loved it, if the author had expanded the story a little. there certainly was ample opportunity to do so . It stands alongside his best efforts , i selfishly wanted more.

WORTH THE CREDIT AND THEM SOME!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I could not quit listening. It's just another GREAT book by this author.
What did you like best about this story?
The ending. I love justice and I love a book that HAS an ending.
Which character – as performed by Simon Prebble – was your favorite?
This narrator is not just a narrator ... he's an actor that gives you a performance that receives a standing ovation from me. This was the first time I've had a book narrated by him and he is one of my favorites now! Each character comes to life and with Follett's descriptive vocabulary, you can see each character in your mind. Of course, the main characters, Mack, Lizzie, Robert, Lenox, were my favorite (didn't like them all, but Prebble did a first-class job!)
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Epic Adventure ... From Scotland to England to Virginia and beyond ...
Any additional comments?
Go ahead and spend your credit, you will not be disappointed. This is an older book from Follett and I saw some relatively negative reviews ... I am so happy I went with the ones who were saying, "Must Read!" ... I'm very happy I didn't miss this great book!
