Description

The Man from St Petersburg is a dark tale of family secrets and political consequences. Ken Follett's masterful storytelling brings to life the danger of a world on the brink of war.

It is just before the outbreak of World War I, and Britain must enlist the aid of Russia. Czar Nicholas' nephew is to visit London for secret naval talks with Lord Walden, who has lived in Russia and has a Russian wife, Lydia. But there are other people who are interested in the arrival of Prince Alexei: the Waldens' only daughter, Charlotte - wilful, idealistic, and with an awakening social conscience; Basil Thompson, head of the Special Branch; and, above all, Feliks Kschessinky, the ruthless Russian anarchist. No one could have foretold that Lydia should recognize Feliks or that she might put her own daughter's life at risk for his sake.

As the secret negotiations progress, the destinies of these characters become ineluctably enmeshed. And as Europe prepares for the catastrophe of war, the final private tragedy which will shatter the complacency of the Waldens is acted out.

Histoire intéressante, narration à la hauteur

Aimant les romans de Ken Follett et adorant la voix de Richard Armitage, j'ai forcément beaucoup apprécié. Je regrette juste que le roman n'ait pas été plus long et qu'Armitage ne lise pas les autres romans de Follett (ou encore mieux, de Bernard Cornwell que j'apprécie encore plus) mais bon, c'est déjà pas mal. Même si on peut se douter de comment va se dérouler le roman, j'ai apprécié les "rebondissements" et la narration distinguant bien (mais j'ai l'impression de me répéter à chaque commentaire) les personnages.

Fantastic!

Amazing book with loveable, captivating characters, dynamic story and great twists :) Ken Follett never disappoints :)
And neither does Richard Armitage, who read the book with ferocity and dedication which does justice to the autor <3

Armitage at his (villainous 😉) best!

Richard Armitage has a knack for humanizing characters typically thought of as “bad guys” and he does so here with Felix, the antagonist. He voices all the characters, male and female, in a sympathetic and convincing manner. The result is a gripping listen where you are able to understand and empathize with all sides of the story. I will definitely listen again!

Very exciting story.

It is the first Audible book read by Richard Armitage for me. I don't regret having chosen this one. Armitage has a great voice and it's much fun listening to him. I've read the novel in German, so it was easy for me to understand. The story is very exciting,every time the asassin seems to get caught,it comes otherwise. I'm looking forward to listening to other novels read by Richard Armitage.

Easy listening

British actor Richard Armitage would probably have my undivided attention reading a telephone book ;-) He has a pleasant and easy to listen to voice that varies with the characters he's portraying.

This makes up for some shortcomings of the story itself... and the over-dramatic finale, but all in, easy listening with a historcal background of the time leading up to WW1
