I am a Ken Follett fan, but I do not recommend this early sample of his writing. A very hard book to read far to many characters. Stick to his latest books all of which have been good reads.

Format: Paperback
"The Modigliani Scandal," was originally published in the United Kingdom in 1976 by Ken Follett, international bestselling British author, under the pseudonym Zachary Stone. It was republished, with an introduction by its now famous author, in 1985. It's a light-hearted suspense thriller, only novella length, obviously an early effort by the author who would make his name soon afterward with the famous spy thriller Eye of the Needle , (made into a very good movie of the same name). And then The Key to Rebecca, also made into a movie of the same name. Then the writer would make his name again with the extraordinary non-fiction On Wings of Eagles. Then he made his name again in historical fiction in 1989 with the huge hit series, THE PILLARS OF THE EARTH, set in twelfth century England. And now he's moved onto the twentieth century with The CENTURY TRILOGY series. But this early novella-length effort of his has, meanwhile, been found and republished. Though it's doubtful it would have been had he not become such a worldwide publishing phenomenon.

The Modigliani Scandal concerns a legendary "lost masterpiece" by Modigliani, famous and much-loved Italian/Jewish 20th century modern artist - he who drew all those thin, elongated figures. This one is supposedly hidden away somewhere in picturesque Italy.

This is clearly an early book by Follett and a fairly short one by his standards. The story centres on the art world and the attempts to create a forgery which is supposedly a lost Modigliani work. It's a complicated plot which becomes clear towards the end. It's a good story - not one of his best by a mile, but an enjoyable read all the same.

I love Ken Follets work, and I think a 1 star rating is a little unfair for this book! Of the Ken's I have read this is the worst, BUT it is still a good story and the characters are well defined. If Ken Follet had written only this book and nothing else then this discussion would not be taking place - in it's own right it is A GOOD READ!

This is a very good read. It is a very early Follett and better than Paper Money. Follett soon perfected his art and starting banging out classics. But I still believe this book is much better than a lot of other authors bests efforts. For me, Follett's best works include The Key to Rebecca, Pillars and The Man from St Petersburg.

A few years ago on one of our many gite holidays in France, I picked up this book which "belonged" in the gite, a couple of days before the end of the holiday. At the end of the holiday I had only got to about page 80 ( as there were so many other things to see/do). Nonetheless, I had got immersed in what I had read and I remember thinking "Why am I enjoying reading this book, not a lot has happened so far". The answer of course is that even in the early works of Ken Follett, he takes time building substance into his characters, instead of the crash/bang/wallop approach of many modern authors where the action is non-stop but ultimately unbelievable, partly because the characters are so shallow. Needless to say, I was tempted to bring the book home but decided to leave it in the gite and subsequently got it from my local library and finished it at one sitting. This was my first taste of Ken Follett and I have now read many more of his books. They consistently deliver great stories, real characters and events to which the author has devoted considerable time researching his subject.

I am a fan of Ken Follett's thrillers and have most of his books. This is one that I would never want to reread. The story didn't capture my imagination being much lighter than most of his novels, it wasn't as compelling and I didn't really find the storyline revolving around an art fraud particularly interesting.

I enjoy most books by Ken Follett but this was very disappointing. It felt like a book he wrote many years ago, not considered good enough at the time but now he's famous it will do. The story was poor and was all over the place. Disappointing.
