Follett in "A Place Called Freedom" met that need I have read a lot of Ken Follett books. I started more than 30 years ago with Lie Down with Lions.

Follett in "A Place Called Freedom" met that need in the midst of it all there is a compelling love story. I have read a lot of Ken Follett books. I loved that book, loved The Eye of the Needle, Night Over Water, etc. Most recently I read Pillars of the Earth and World Without End. I loved ALL of these stories. A Place Called Freedom just didn't measure up to those other Follett books I have loved.

Dick Richards, the previous owner of your place, followed that road, which is how come your father-in-law ended up owning the place. We could clear Stafford Park in time for next spring. Stafford Park was a piece of rough land separate from the main estate, ten miles upriver. Because of the distance it was neglected, and Jay had tried to lease or sell it, but there had been no takers. Why not start with Pond Copse?" said the colonel

This is a bit of a hard review to write.

On the one hand, I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters are enjoyable and dynamic. The locations are really well-defined. The writing is crisp and flows well. The plot is, for the most part, intriguing.

The historical aspect was also a lot of fun. Seeing the emergence of the rights of the people in Britain and the Patriot movement in the 13 colonies was fun. Even George Washington gets a bit of a cameo!

I suppose some parts were too long, like Mack's struggles with the coal undertakers, or the life on Mockjack Plantation, but they weren't boring.

Spoilers:
For me though, the ending just felt rushed, especially after such a long book. It was like Ken Follett was up against a deadline or he was just tired of writing and wanted to finish the book.
Simply having Jay and Lennox killed by Indians while Peg and the "fish boy" Indian fall in love was just sort of contrived. After the encounter with Jay and Lennox, the four (Mack, Lizzie, Peg, and Fish boy) all settle in a valley and live happily ever after...oh and there are eagles in the valley too. What?
I was hoping for a better resolution to the story. The Indians were included at the very end for a convenient way to wrap up the story. Surely, there was a better way for Jay and Lennox to meet their ends? Perhaps only Lennox gets killed by Mack and Jay is sent back to his mother with his tail between his legs.
Then an epilogue could have been included that takes place 6-7 years later with Mack and family firmly established in the wilderness as they hear the news about the Revolution and what-not. Perhaps Jay joins the Loyalists and is killed or shamed in battle...who knows.

Okay, enough of my rant about the ending. The novel, while long, is enjoyable. You'll really enjoy it if you love history too!.

Ferguson's crew is still defeating Al Qaeda, Roper still manages to find a way to break into secret conversations, Dillon and Sara till bring the house down on the piano and in song at every nightspot they attend, and the bad guys never send competent hit men after the team. There is also the extended explanation of routine events found in Harris novels, although only one extra word or so, and there are few surprises.

In addition, I'm certain that I've read this novel before, bad proof reading and all, regardless of the fact that it was supposedly just released for publication on 12/22/14. It is obviously not a new release, and has the earmarks of a ploy; Issuing it as a new release as hyperbole to attract new readers.

I'm sorry to report that "The Death Trade" is just an O K read.

I have never really been into reading books besides the ones that I was assigned while in my school years. I was handed a few books by a friend and chose this one just by luck, as soon as I started reading it I got so into it and could vividly picture everything as I went along. My expertise in books might not be good enough to convince one to buy this book, but because of A Place Called Freedom I will start getting more into reading and look forward to new titles. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I finished it in 2 days and I'm looking forward to my next one.

Sincerely
New book Lover

This book serves its purpose, fulfilling a search for historical adventure in Scotland, England and Colonial America. Along the way some detail is provided on coal mining, the coal distribution system, tobacco growing, and importantly, slavery -- among white people in Europe and America, and black people in America. All of this surrounds the story of an exceptional man who yearns for freedom from all the constraints and restrictions he was born into, and his pursuit of a woman he has known since childhood. It is an event-filled, adventuresome life, and a story well-told, and well worth reading by those who enjoy history and adventure.

Ken Follett never ceases to surprise me! I've read so many books about "freedom" and they end up being about slavery in America, African American slavery. I had no idea this book was about a different type of slavery altogether. It's still slavery, and horrific details, etc, but I was pleasantly surprised by his characters, plot twists, etc. When I finish one of his books (usually at 2 or 3 am because I can't put them down!) I always wish the characters were real people! I would love to meet these characters in real life. Thank you!

Ken Follett is a masterful storyteller and A Place Called Freedom is no exception. The novel is fast paced and a real page turner with multidimensional characters and their stories blending with colorful history. My only complaint (and the reason for taking off one star) is the ending. I don't want to spoil this for those of you who are thinking about reading Freedom - I highly recommend you do - but the ending left me hanging and dying for more. There is so much more story worth telling here! My hope is that the author has done this purposefully because he has a sequel planned. I'll be watching and waiting . . .
