Ken Follett’s ‘The Evening And The Morning’ — NOT Another ‘Pillars’, BUT Pretty Decent.
It was good. Decent.
I am GLAD I listened to it, rather than read it! I never thought I would ever utter that phrase about any book. But, ‘Audibles’ has made me into a convert. That I walk to for 2-hours every morning is a HUGE factor. I listen while I walk. So, I am killing two-birds …. That helps. This book sure kept me company & for the last couple of weeks I looked forward, every morning, to hearing it as I walked.
No, it is not another “Pillars of the Earth“. “Pillars …“, quite literally, changed my LIFE! I would NOT be writing this if not for “Pillars …“. “Pillars …” civilized I. Converted me from being the philistine I was. But, that was nearly 25-years ago — & “Pillars” was the first book of that genre I have read.
So, maybe the comparison is wrong & harsh. I am 25-years OLDER & much more attuned & au fait with the subject matter.
Definitely a fairly decent story. Yes, Ken gets your attention. We all know that.
But, this story, ALAS, has a HUGE, HUGE fatal flaw in its plot line! Sorry.
I won’t divulge it. I will just say it has to do with ‘Lady Regna’ & her relatives. Leave it at that.
I would definitely recommend listening to this — while driving, walking or exercising. That way you can justify your time commitment. SMILE.
