Ken Follett is a wonderful author. Even though this is one of his earlier books, the writing is engaging and very well done. I enjoyed it tremendously.....

25 years after its first edition, this book is still topical. It takes its readers into a violence and explosive world of espionage, alternated with love, passion, desire, hate, confidence/faith and deception. This book is certainly a compulsive and satisfying piece of art.

I loved the book, very interesting story that kept me reading. A little history involved also. I'll try more of Mr. Follett's books.

THE HIGH SEAS - where the Mossad's (Israel), KGB, Egyptians and Fedayeen terrorits play out the final violent, bloody moves in this devastating game where the price of failure in nuclear holocaust.
One of the liveliest thrillers of the year...Follett is a master of crafty play and incredible detail with tightly woven suspense - high voltage romance - fascinating people and places - a breathtaking climax.

I read this book when it originally came out in 1979. I was very young then and not well versed in history. Since then, I've become extremely interested in history and I know that Ken Follett writes very good historical fiction, whether it be about the 12th century, or the 20th. Plus, he's one of my favorite authors, as you all know if you've read my other Follett reviews. This book, however, got too complicated for me as it went on with all the different characters and nautical maneuverings. Even though there was a romance added, it still didn't bring up my interest levels because I couldn't just "believe" in the romance. It was too cliche: Man meets beautiful daughter of beautiful mother whom he desired 20 years earlier. The daughter looks JUST like her mother (cliche), is 16 years younger than man (cliche so old and frequent, I could throw this one away for good), and they both fall in love with each other in about 1 day??? And, as usual, it doesn't matter what the man looks like. His head could look like a billiard ball and his face a pock-marked mess - she falls for him anyway. But her looks are always PERFECT. Anyway, there is a lot of merit in the book and people who don't have problems with complicated war plots will love it. But for me, not one of my Follett Favorites.

Great book with interesting characters. Plot is well crafted and makes the book a real page turner. This is the second Ken Follett book I've read and he has become one of my favorite suspense/action authors along with Vince Flynn. Can't wait to dive into his next book.
