Edge of the seat stuff .......

Exciting storytelling, true Ken Follett style and detail. Narration by Emma Fenney was excellent, kept me on the edge of my seat until the end, excellent.

Interesting novel set in Afghanistan

I enjoyed this novel, not least for the perspective of Afghanistan during the period that the Russians were fighting the war rather than the Americans. However it was spoiled for me by a lengthy part of a chapter that had cringeworthy descriptions of sex between two of the protagonists. There is (in my view) extensive use of the c*** word, and I think a lot of the description verges on sexist. Of course, I speak as a women reading the work of a male author, but I couldn't help feeling that he was writing out some of his own fantasies.
I think that the narrator was excellent, particularly in her reading of the passages that I have mentioned.
Ken Follett writes great yarns and has no need to 'enhance' his books in this way. Definitely less is more!

Not Mr Folletts best

I really struggled with this book and almost gave up on it numerous times. Apart from the young boy who lost his hand after picking up a land mine I could not like any of the characters. The story was okay, but very predictable The narrator made the book even worse. It was hard work listening to her.
