This is somewhere between a 3 and a 4, but I decided on a 3, ultimately. It takes WAY too long to get into, before it becomes interesting. The characters were interesting and definitely came to life. That was basically the best part of the book. Everything see-sawed back and forth between the protagonists and antagonists endlessly for 950+ pages. It got a bit tiresome, since often it was the same kind of stuff over and over.

I'd recommend other books of Ken Follett's over this one.
