    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 stro

Follett s definitely got a formula and here he follows it true to form Unfortunately I thought it fell short compared to the others I ve read like Fall of Giants A Placed Called Freedom and especially Pillars of the Earth The good people are good and prescient and precocious the bad people are petty vindictive and rotten and thencrazy shit happensIt s a formula but he does it wellHowever the characters didn t live up to their WTF potential and the ending as hilariously bugfuck as it was couldn t really offset the mehness of Hugh Pilaster and Maisie Robinson I wasn t feeling the feelz for these mixed up tragic kids like I have for others in Follett s oeuvre And the villainess Augusta Pilaster really really needed a tawdry comeuppance than what she got It kind of fizzled out and ended with a whimper rather than the insane crackfest that was reuired and which I know my Kenny boy is capable ofI have not lost faith in my Ken Merely a bump in the road I remain loyal and smugly anticipacious of future WTFery

La misteriosa morte di un giovane studente erede di un cospicuo patrimonio mette in moto una spirale di intrighi e vendette destinata a durare piĆ¹ di vent'anni e nella uale viene coinvolta una dinastia di banc. Things you can count on in a Follett bookA strong male protagonist who everyone else is determined to make failA strong female protagonist who acts in ways women of their time period just do not act and doesn t give a damn about what others think of her One of the above parties either rises from their low station or falls from their high station A nasty villain who does nothing but bad and surrounds himself with powerful people who he manipulates to get what he wants and to cover his bad deeds He is rewarded handsomely for his bad deeds A meddling relative or in law of the male protagonist who aligns herself with the villain to destroy him A gay couple who are in the closet about their secret Most everyone knows of their secret and don t care about their preference but use it against them to manipulate and control their decisions to suit the villains A few illegitimate children or two that are spawned from true love but whose parents can t be together because of the plotting of the villainous relatives Men who pretend to be gentlemen but go whoring around at night and look down upon the women they use for their gratification Too much description of the scenes described above In his writing Follett tends to repeat character descriptions that he already described in previous chapters Usually this is done from the point of view of different characters throughout the novel Either way it gets annoying I don t need to be reminded that so and so is from such and such town and has freckled arms four or five times Follett definitely does his historical research His descriptions of the era he writes about are so vivid and a main reason why his books are so engrossing All in all I like Ken Follett and have read many of his books Even though they follow the same plot pattern described above I will continue to read them However I don t think any of the ones I read from now on will come as close to being as well written as Pillars Maybe this is because that was my first Follett novel
