Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ellen | 2/20/2014

    " too many characters, hard to keep track of them , also twisted plot and probably some wry comments about the field of art collecting that I didn't get. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trainreq | 2/15/2014

    " A good story about the art underworld. A step up from Clancy. Better writing but less technical cool stuff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen Roe | 2/12/2014

    " not one of his best books "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Siobhan | 1/27/2014

    " After slogging through Pillars of the Earth, I thought I'd give Ken another shot with The Modigliani Scandal. It's official. I hate how he writes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 1/24/2014

    " A good, quick, fluffy read. Perfect for travel or the beach. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marty | 1/19/2014

    " What a little gem.....an early Follett, quite different from the later books....I agree with his critics as he notes in the forward, very different....and I thought a funny who did it....could be made into a cute movie. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Holly | 1/14/2014

    " Not as good as some of his others "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey | 1/14/2014

    " I was so excited to read this book, I mean I liked The Pillars of the Earth, and when I saw one of his earlier books had Modigliani in the title, what could be better, a mystery involving art! So I was surprised when starting the book that there was a forward added to new editions written by Ken Follett himself, which pretty much ruined my anticipation. Apparently he thought he had written this very serious mystery/thriller, but the critics called it fluffy. Not an exact quote, but you get the picture. When the author of the book puts it down, what am I supposed to think! Ultimately, I did like the book, but there could have been more development. There was an unexpected ending, that caught me by surprise too which is always good. "

    " interesting idea but not written as grippingly as other works "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michela | 1/7/2014

    " una love story come un 'altra..... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 José Antonio | 12/6/2013

    " Una obra maravillosa. Te atrapa. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathie | 11/24/2013

    " This book was not as good as the other Ken Follett books I have read. It was a very quick, easy read --almost fluff. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Virginia Albanese | 11/23/2013

    " One of Follett's early books. Writing seemed simplefied and less intertwined plots of his later books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 11/22/2013

    " A good fast read. Another art related who done it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 11/20/2013

    " Ken Follett never wrote a bad book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joyce McKune | 10/9/2013

    " Too many shallow characters. Not his best work. Almost gave up because I just couldn't "care" for the subject or characters, but it was only 190 pages so not too much time wasted. I've read some great books by Follett so will try something else. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 8/27/2013

    " As I promised myself, I am working myself through Ken's books and read this his first one. He is quite critical of himself but I really liked it. It had a lot of things going on but Ken knew what he was doing and had good control of his whole story "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suz | 7/17/2013

    " He should keep writing things like Pillare of the Earth and World without end..... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 1/5/2013

    " Loved this book, but I wished there was more about the artists and art. Michael York did a great job, love his accent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carmen | 12/19/2012

    " Not one of his best, but a good effort. This book takes place in the art world, but there was not enough research done first. Not much excitement either. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rupesh Goenka | 11/30/2012

    " One of the earliest books of Ken Follett.. Not that good.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Merry | 8/6/2012

    " Not your typical Ken Follett novel, which even he states in the front of the book. It's a mystery surrounding the search for an art masterpiece, so no gruesome murders involved. All in all, a quick, light read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy Brunner | 7/16/2011

    " Not so keen on Ken Follett's contemperary novels. Prefer his historic ones. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marty | 4/15/2011

    " What a little gem.....an early Follett, quite different from the later books....I agree with his critics as he notes in the forward, very different....and I thought a funny who did it....could be made into a cute movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 George | 3/16/2011

    " Early Follett, and thus interesting to see where he started before the fame and bestsellerdom. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynley | 2/13/2011

    " it was a great "airport" page turner although i didn't realize it was set in the 80s till the end which explained what i thought were plot holes but was really just technology that didn't exist yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 12/29/2010

    " This was a short book for Ken Follett. Another winner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bedazzled | 12/3/2010

    " A huge let-down considering the fact that i have enjoyed reading his other books immensely. Not enough tension in the narrative and a little too soft for my taste.But i liked it, nonetheless.Overall ,a lackluster book that could have been brilliant. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alan | 10/31/2010

    " I just can't get enough of Ken Follett. AMAZING!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy | 9/11/2010

    " I read a lot of Follett in the early 80's, in fact did a paper on his heroines. Although this book was a enjoyable and intriguing and I still wonder about the very end, it wasn't up to those thrillers. Makes me want to read them again. He does weave an intricate plot. "
