A Place Called Freedom

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Ken Follett

Narrated By: Simon Prebble

Date: April 2015

Duration: 14 hours 42 minutes


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.

  • Bonnie M.

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

    Loved it - my first Ken Follett book, Now on to read more by this gifted author! Narrator was great, too.

  • Crompton B.

    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.

  • Janice S.

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

  • Derek R.

    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.
