Review of the audiobook narrated by Michael PageThis is my fourth book by Ken Follett and I can t help but notice his formula now Generational stories told in periods that are broken up into parts by long time jumps this works well Great villains that you will hate yet at the same time find sympathetic another win A male protagonist who is a plain looking overachiever and a female protagonist who is a beautiful and strong ahead of her time innovator getting a little old The good characters will have something or someone they love taken away from them when they are about to achieve happiness every single time Follett will be obsessed with every female character s breasts must we But the formula works well as Follett is a master of intrigue and is great at getting you to identify with all of the characters good and badFor those fans of the Kingsbridge series that town is mentioned and has tertiary characters appear in the plot Chronologically this book is set hundreds of years after the last book in that series but it s still a nice reminder that you re in Follett s universe If this were my first Ken Follett book I likely would have given it 5 stars like I did with A Place Called Freedom my first of his but this now familiar formula gives the book an element of predictability that does take away from the overall enjoyment and in the end it s a satisfying 4 stars insteadThis audiobook was recorded in 1994 With the recent boom in audiobook production I don t listen to many which were produced so long ago Usually these cases are narrated by long forgotten actors but this time it s a narrator Michael Page who I also enjoyed in a contemporary production his performance of The Lies of Locke Lamora is one of my favorites He s great here with the various characters and accents and I will continue to choose books just because he is the narratorFinal verdict 4 star story 5 star narration 4 stars overall
