User reviews about this book
Ok plot, weak characters and ending
I honestly knew it wasn’t going to be a good book from the first few pages. The characters are poorly built, the dialogues are pretty absurd and the plot, which is OK, was wrapped up in a very simplistic way. Very unfortunate
Follett never disappoints me.
Fictional History of the Origins of WWI
A continually interesting page-turner, this novel explores the origins of WWI from the Russian and English points of view.
Providing an accurate portrait of class relations in England, a fatal love triangle propels a family drama that continues to surprise and intrigue as it moves towards a fiery conclusion. Very satisfying.
The man from Saint Petersburg
Good book. First Follett book I read.
After reading the Follett books chronologically up to this one, this one was a major letdown. Follett roundly bashed the Brits and elevated the Anarchists. Charlotte and Lydia lived happily ever after in spite of their complicity in Alex's assassination. This was a strange ending, it makes one wonder if Follette was drinking what Lydia was addicted to...
I read the book in 3 days, could have read in less if had the time. Quintessential Ken Follett captivating work.
