Dear Ken

I’ve just discovered you and am happy to have done so! I just finished ‘Night Over Water’ and loved it (I’m an old aviation buff). Now I have four more of your paperbacks sitting here. My brother was right. You tell a good story!

Dear Ken

Thanks for all the wonderful books you have written. I usually read them in Swedish so I’m always seem to be one book behind...I chose ‘A Place called Freedom’ as the most enjoyable, but that’s partly because I love Scotland. I do enjoy all your books!!!

Dear Ken

I just finished ‘The Pillars of the Earth’ today, and I must say, it is the best book that I have ever read. I have never read a book that had me completely twisted around it like this did. When I saw on the web site that there is a sequel in the works, I was very happy. I’m sure that I will be a huge Follett fan from now on, even though I haven’t read one of your more spy/thriller novels yet. All I have to say, is that if they are half as good as ‘Pillars’ was then I have a lot to look forward too.

Mr. Follett,

I’m quite sure you hear this often, however I feel compelled to say you are, indeed, my favorite author. I consider myself an aspiring writer, and have found the Masterclass section of your site very intriguing and informative. I am most captivated by your WWII-era novels, though I enjoy that you write other stories as well. I have long enjoyed your novels, and regularly look for any I may have missed.

Thank you,

Dear Ken

‘Whiteout’ read like a motion picture. Enjoyed reading the difference between the two women characters! Good job!
