Exciting story of great achievement, mixed with the human story of trauma of a poor orphan girl growing up. Very well written and well read.
I now want to start learning Chess once again.😄

Just loved reading the wonderful story of the Tata family. Patriotic yet humble, enterprising yet generous - truly inspiring story. They have built an Empire but never trod on people's toes. Touches the heart that GOOD people exist in this world

One can't imagine an individual like Elon Musk, dedicated, driven, compulsive, brilliant. God only puts a very few people like that on earth, who by their sheer force of personality, can simply change the way things are done.

Compelling life story, well written, well read.
The only time I disliked Musk was when he fired his long time assistant Mary Beth Brown, although in later reports he denies it.

Struggled to finish the book. Detailed historical facts during World War 1 which was interesting, but the narrative was slow and tedious.

Just finished hearing this Spellbinding book and am left speechless! How is it possible for an author ( Ken Follet) to conceive such a story which is enigmatic, the complexity of the characters, their loves, lives, ambition, dispair, duplicity, cunning - all woven together skillfully, together with well researched history of the era. There is not a moment, a line, a page which does not impel one to keep on reading!
John Lee' s voice is superb, as well as compelling.
Just loved this book!

Spellbinding story. Beautifully read. Couldn't put it down. Finished in 3 days.
Can't wait to read other Ken Follet books.

A spellbinding and riveting podcast . It was fascinating as well as disturbing to perceive how one man's influence had such a disastrous effect on the world psyche and the horror of the consequence it has had on the entire world.
Rupert Murdoch may have started out as an astute businessman (outsmarted the Print Union), but
money, power and influence turned him into a callous individual, forgetting what is right or wrong and denigrating the very moral fabric of our existence. The ordinary man's role in supporting such base news reporting is a sad reminder of our own base instincts! ( shades of Hitler).

David Dimbleby' s research and narrative is, as always, flawless.

Catches and holds your attention right from the beginning. The story takes its inspiration from some of the real life incidents in the Indian political scene and weaves it with gripping fiction. Masterful story telling right to the end by Ravi Subramaniam.
well read by Venkataraghavan Sriniivasan
