Ken follet is a gifted writerand does not disappoint! Another follett page turner. Follett is a master story teller.
The storyline is amazing. Excellent plot interweave. Family conflicts, intrigue, greed & * abound.

Incredibly unrewarding. The sample rarely informs you of this impending trash!
The writing is sub par and the characters are all such a bunch of cardboard cutouts. The worst of ken follett's work.
The twists are too coincidental. Weakened by predictable characters and excessive, unnecessary and tiresome * scenes. I agree with many reviewers that this was a very formulaic novel.
A story told with immense care and beauty. The ending is pure hans andersen. The use of language in this book is immaculate.
Goes on a series of rants that are tedious to read. The book ends with *'s last rant, and the ending comes out of nowhere.
