I am sure this is a beginning of a series. It was the usually parade of super heroes in training. The characters were interesting and the story line interesting. Amy Landon does a great narration!!!!

And it continues!!!

Great story and great characters - I feel Ken Follett loves challenging these characters to the worst case scenarios. Thank God the book is long so things will eventually work out!!! Great author and narration by John Lee!!!!

Great Book!!!!

At first I was angry that my favorite characters seemed to have disappeared!!! I kept thinking, where are we going here??? I was not disappointed but it was definitely a different read from the previous novels. I don't want to say anymore as it don't want to spoil the story for others. I have all these novels and will continue to follow. I am definitely looking forward to further adventures of this crew of people. Love Jefferson Mays narration!!!!

GREAT NOVEL!!!

Ken Follett's characters are evil and totally good. I like or not like the way the characters keep rising in good fortune and then fall to the depths of despair. I find I am holding on throughout the novel praying like - please turn this around. The story is long but entertaining. Great narration by John Lee!!!!

Great book!!!

I was introduced to this author through the TV production of Big Little Lies. I have since started to read/listen to all of this author's books. This novel did not disappoint. I love Caroline Lee's narration. The author has a great gift in writing about children and people. I love the "head" talk. I love the flawed characters and the story line. She keeps you guessing which I like. Definitely will continue to follow this author.

Love Sherlock, love this novel

This is a different swing on what might have happened during World War I. I love spiritual/ghost novels as I do Tarot etc. So I found the story line interesting and entertaining.

I confess I bought this book primarily because Collin Firth was the narrator for this novel. Graham Greene is a great author!!! But, Colin Firth nailed this book with his reading. Colin Firth is a great narrator and I highly recommend listening to anything he reads. He provided the life to this novel in my opinion.
