I received these letters recently, and thought you would enjoy them as much as I did…

Hi Ken,
Currently I am in Sabah, Borneo. I enjoyed reading your book, ‘Whiteout’, tremendously. Every page grabbed my attention and you did a marvellous job. The suspense was gripping and the plot terrific. I look forward to reading your other books soon.

Bye for now, good luck in your future endeavours!

Hi Ken,
It’s 6am in ‘Whiteout’ and very very tense! ‘Whiteout’ is living up to its reputation. I’ve read almost all of your books and I’m a huge fan. Keep the stories rolling.

Dear Ken,
I have finally purchased your novel, ‘Eye of the Needle’, after having seen the the unforgettable film (20 years ago?). I never forgot Donald Sutherland’s performance and have admired him since. In picking up your book, I was immediately captivated by your writing, and in speaking with friends today, it seems that everyone of them who has read your book(s) and seen the film has gotten the same reaction. Now I’ll have to read everything you’ve written. Continued success, and thanks for a great read.

Hi Ken,
I only started reading your books recently and I’m glad that I did. You’re a hell of a writer. I just finished reading ‘The Man From St. Petersburg’ and I think that it might possibly be the best book I’ve ever read. Are you working on anything new at this time or are you taking a break from writing for a while? I wish you good luck no matter what you decide to do.

Mr. Follett,
Greetings from the USA! I just finished reading your masterpiece ‘Pillars of the Earth’. As much as I wanted to finish the book, I did not want it to end. A friend of mine recommended it so I picked it up, reluctantly. It was the biggest book I had attempted and was not sure if I wanted to or even could get through such a large book. Well, I learned that you can not judge a book by its cover or size. Once I had started reading I literally could not put it down. The story not only gripping but flowed beautifully from beginning to end. I look forward to ‘World Without End’.

Thank you,
United States
