Customer Review

on 6 February 2011
This is the first novel I have ever read by Mr. Follett. From the start the man pulls you into the culture of a country under siege. For those wanting to understand what it was like to live under the threat of German air raids, Follett does a very of competent and entertaining job of demonstrating the fear the English lived with and the humour they used to weather that chapter in history. All of this lays the foundation to tell the story of a man who was clearly born to be a spy and killer. One thing I found interesting is Follett's choice to mythologize the villain while not creating a mirror persona of the hero or heroes. As a writer, I found the pacing and structure instructive but I would have gladly accepted a longer read if we were given the privilege to delve deeper into the inner stories of some of the other the characters. Regardless, I loved this story for its thorough portrayal of history while not forgetting to entertain the hell out of me. Read it and learn something more about that period in history who's lessons seem all but forgotten.
