Triple poorly performed

I enjoy Ken Follet. My favorite performer is John Lee. The performer of TRIPLE was flaccid, in my opinion

Dull Performer

If you are looking for a book to fall asleep to - this is it! Performer managed to make an action-filled gun fight dull. First 2/3 of book is slow and a little dull. Good ending.

Other considerations

Author Ken Follett needs no additional acclaim, so I recommend this book with no reservation.
My critique is directed towards the narrator. His ineptitude with the French language is shocking. I wonder why he did not enlist The services of a language coach

Good enough

Story was true Ken Follett. I remember reading this in school in early 80’s. So glad to experience the storyline again. Mr Jaffrey did a good enough job on the characters and intonations.

Great story and excellent narration

As usual, Ken Follett does a great job of developing his characters as well as telling an intriguing story. The narrator was a very good fit for this story. I found the narrator to be comforting like having my parents read to me when I was a child.

Disappointed

This was not his best work. I expected more. Too much development of some characters and not enough of others. Left me waiting
