A really good read.... — 4 years ago
But Ken Follett is obsessed with ladies breasts! Once you realise this it kind of alters your appreciation of the book as you start to see the pattern that all the good women have big boobs and the badies and non-important female characters have flat chests. Also there seems to be a disproportionate amount of narrative given over to describing what the main female character’s boobs are up to at every given opportunity. It’s still a good book though and there is a good mix of storytelling and interesting factual information. I’m reading the sequel World Without End at the moment which is also good. However I do find it a bit dissapointing that he feels the need to mention the breast size of every female character, also, he’s done a U-turn in this book and the badies have large chests and the goodies have small, firm breasts which just makes me suspect that someone pointed out his underlying obsession in the first book and now he’s tried to over-correct the issue.
