What made the experience of listening to Ken Follett the most enjoyable?
I didn't know what to expect with this audio, but it was Ken Follett and I thought it might be interesting. It was great! Most of the books he mentioned I had already read, but the ones I hadn't I noted down, and got them on Audible.com! His speaking style is very entertaining and the discussion was very interesting.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, this is something you want to listen to in one sitting; however, I listened on my commute to work, so it took me a couple of days.

It was great to prepare one for listening to Pillars of the Earth which is one of the best listeNS I've had on Audible. It gives great insight on how and why this author writes. Comparable to Stephen Kings book On Writing.

Another in the highly entertaining 92Y series, this features popular novelist Follett discussing the essential ingredients of a "thriller". Plainly, Follett is very well read and researched and his part-time lecturing comes in handy, here. He is easy to listen to, has an interesting thesis and responds well to questions from the audience.
This is another worthwhile listen in this usually very consistent series and won't eat into much more than a lunch hour (if such things still exist).

Any additional comments?
This short lecture portray some of the key moments of the history of the thriller/suspense. It is an informative and pleasurable listening.

Ken Follet gives an entertaining history of the thriller, full of sage and funny comments.
Unfortunately, we can't see his slides or hear the questions at the end. I don't know what the producers could have done with that.
However, for fans of thrillers or Ken Follet or both, it's worth listening!
