Another great Follett thriller. He keeps you guessing until halfway through the book just what is about to happen to this Clipper "flying boat" and who the bad guys really are. From that point on, it's very hard to put down.

This was a GREAT book! I really enjoyed it. I read it while I was on a cruise. So it kind of tied in. I was traveling and these people were traveling on the maiden run of Pan Am's first flying boat. I love Ken Follett's suspenseful writing. It is right up my ally because there are very little gory details, people aren't getting shot up right and left, there is always at least one person story or romance taking place, yet every single page is suspenseful. I read his books so fast because I can hardly put them down! I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the kind of suspense that I do.

I don't think I've ever read anything by Follett that I haven't liked. I highly recommend this book. It sounded boring when my sister first described it to me, but it is a good book!

Follett's 'Night over Water' could easily fit into the Romance vein of literature. This book is chalk full of romantic interludes. They were interesting enough because of the situations the characters found themselves getting in to.

The plot is set at the out break of war between England and Germany in WWII. Follett manages to bring a good dozen characters to life, exploring their history and their current problems which in turn set up an engaging series of delimas. A great read for all the WWII buffs!

Night over Water was a good story line but predictable. The characters did not have any consequences for their actions and story lines didn't fit their characters.
Not his best, but an easy read
