    Description

    International number-one best seller Ken Follett returns with The Evening and the Morning, a thrilling and addictive novel from the master of historical fiction. 

    It is 997 CE, the end of the Dark Ages, and in England one man's ambition to make his abbey a centre of learning will take the listener on an epic journey into a historical past rich with ambition and rivalry, death and birth, love and hate. 

    Thirty years ago, Ken Follett published his most popular novel, The Pillars of the Earth, which has sold more than 27 million copies worldwide. 

    Now, this novel, the prequel, will take the listeners on an epic journey that will end where The Pillars of the Earth begins.

    pretty grim, but stick it out

    I was not prepared for the hours of utter despair ahead of me when I embarked on this book. It really was pretty grim. Characters who I came to love endured near-constant victimisation, cruelty and punishment. There seemed to be no end to the villains and villainy that was perpetrated in this book, and seemingly boundless in the ways in which it could be applied (in the same kind of way that Game of Thrones does it). I felt for my favourite characters so much, that honestly it really ground me down seeing them suffer so, and for much of the story I felt myself wondering whether anything good might ever happen. I appreciated the way that this book created such an immersive and engaging story experience for the listener, but for me anyway, it generated so much sadness that I nearly gave up on it. The only thing that kept me going was the hope that some redemption, justice, and reward would come in the end. The writing itself, and the storytelling was really impressive, and so was the character development, and the absolute authenticity in representation of that time period, (in all its ugliness). However readers like me need some regular breadcrumbs of happiness to keep me going – some little breathing spaces where you can reassure yourself that bad things don’t ALWAYS happen! Apart from that it was a terrific book. In terms of the narration – a lot of reviewers didn’t like the halting kind of cadence to the narrator’s delivery, and I can see why they might say that. When I first started listening, it was really noticeable. But after an hour I didn’t notice it anymore, and by half-way through I couldn’t imagine it being narrated any other way. Generally the different characters’ voices were distinct enough that you could always tell who was talking, and the various accents (especially the French) were very well done. I can’t say how this book compares to the other ones written by this author – I read Pillars of the Earth, but it was so long ago and I was pretty young at the time, so I don’t really remember much about it to be honest. I will certainly think about reading the other Kingsbridge books.

    Brilliant!

    Like Pillars of the Earth, the story was riveting throughout the book. Enjoyed every minute of The Evening and the Morning. Excellent audible narration by John Lee.

    A long journey to justice

    This interesting, well paced story leads the reader on an adventurous journey of human emotion, from tyrannical injustice, through unsettling pangs of loss, revenge, bewilderment and, finally, the joy of hard earned justice and community building, with all sorts of everyday characters playing theirpart. A gripping read with a somewhat hasty, yet satisfying resolution.

    Boring - Predictive

    The characters are either selfless heros or despicable villains. There is very little character development beyond that premise. Every undertaking by a hero is thwarted by the evil villains; that theme is repeated endlessly and predictably until finally the villains come to their end - well the story had to end some time and had to have a happy ending.

    A romantic novel, without much historic content

    Lots of content about the romances , and evils of the main characters, with little historical content. An ok novel, that's it

    Good story Awful narrator

    Ken Follett is a favourite author but the story was spoiled by the awful narration. While the reader could do the character’s voices credibly, the word emphasis for the narrated parts was inappropriate with the timbre of the voice rising and falling in the wrong places. If i wasn’t a ken follett fan i would not have reached the end.

    Performance

    A great book by a top class author, but I shall have to revert to reading the old fashioned way. I'm sorry but John Lee is just awful.

    Don't Waste your Money

    Narrator does his best but this is just a repeat of Pillars of the Earth and World without End set around 1000 AD. The plot is the same poor talented builder who triumphs in adversity against bad nobles, a corrupt and evil church (except for the odd monk) and a 'high born lady' ending up with low born hero. Stereotypical characters with little depth. Awful.

    Brilliant . Captivating as Pillars of the Earth

    Loved this story. Such a good narrator. Ken Follett you have outdone yourself keeping the story of this period in time alive for us today.
