Audio Book Summary

Larger-than-life characters, and an epic plot brimming with the energy of his internationally-acclaimed thrillers make Ken Follett's A Place Called Freedom an experience not to be missed. This lush novel-set in 1766 England and America-evokes an era ripe with riot and revolution from the teeming streets of London to the sprawling grounds of a Virginia plantation. Mack McAsh burns with the desire to escape his life of slavery in Scottish coal mines, while Lizzie Hallim is desperate to shed a life of sheltered subjugation to her spineless husband. United in America, their only chance for freedom lies beyond the western frontier-if they're brave enough to take it. Spanning two continents and bringing together an unforgettable cast of heroes, villains, and rebels, A Place Called Freedom is a magnificent epic of love, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Narrator Simon Prebble's masterful use of voice and pacing captures a vivid cast of characters, and the powerful destiny that shapes their lives.

    Not my favorite from Ken Follett. Predictable and not as complex as his other books.

    I've always enjoyed Ken Follett's writing and this book is no exception. Great characters and interesting plot. As one reviewer commented, it's not as complex as some of his other works but enjoyable nevertheless!

    Not one of Ken Follett's best - in fact a lot of it did not read like a Follett book.

    I love all of his books but this one was alittle slow moving. I hope to enjoy more of his books soon.

    This was a quick read compared to some of Follet's other works, but it was enjoyable. The narrator did a wonderful job.
