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.

Great book. Ken Follett is always a good read and Simon Prebble does an amazing job narrating the book / bring it to life. I would recommend this audio book highly.

The story is pretty good, narrator was average. This was just a ho-hum experience.

Follett never disappoints. Maybe a bit predictable but even so I enjoyed listening to it.

Follett fan from Eye of the Needle era....Night Over Water, etc. but lost Interest with most recent work until now. Enjoyed this novel and really good narration rendered a great selection.

I enjoy historical fiction. I liked the characters. It did have more romance than history.

I didn’t want the story to end. I’m hoping there will be a sequel!

Fine book, I think I knew how it was going to end after the first chapter. Follett does a good job of putting you in the scene.

Described as historical fiction. Should have been described as historical romance. It could have been a pretty good read if all the clunky clumsy sex stuff had been edited out.

Another engaging historical story from Ken Follett. If you love Ken's books this will not disappoint as it gives you the usual good guy/bad guys, and of course, the love story that is woven throughout. The narration is fantastic, Simon Prebble makes you feel like your right there in 1700's England and makes each character come alive.

Great story Really enjoyed it! Ken has a way of making you feel like you are in the coal mines with the character and everywhere else the story takes you! Only negative would be a bit to descriptive with the sexual content!

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.

Great read, just like all his others! I have read everything I could find written by this author, and all of his books are great.
