Paper Money3By OobasI really loved this book until the end, when I couldn't believe it was over! I was kind of disappointed, because it seemed to end so abruptly...I expected more.
It was as if the author got tired of writing3By Rep62arThe book was was excellent. Follett is one of my favorite authors. However, the book ended very abruptly. It was as if he got tired of writing and quit. I went so far as looking back at the iBooks site to see that the entire book had downloaded.
