Dear Ken
I have read and enjoyed many of your books, but have never looked at your website before. It is a wealth of information. Thank you for being so open and available to your readers and fans.

Mr. Follett
I just finished reading ‘Hornet Flight’ and I must say it was fantastic, I couldn’t put it down. I had read a few of your books many years back and thoroughly enjoyed those also. I haven’t read much in the last few years, but after reading your novel I can’t wait to pick up another one.

Thank you for rekindling my love of a good story.

To Ken,
You need to write more books. I enjoy your writing so much your books do not last long enough. I am running out of books of yours to read.

That is my complaint!

Hi Ken,
I’m an avid reader and have recently been introduced to your books. My daughter, Chris, lent me your book ‘Pillars of the Earth’ and now I’m hooked on your books. We are both delighted to hear that your presently working on the sequel to ‘Pillars of the Earth’. I just bought your new book ‘Whiteout’ and can’t wait to get started.

Thanks for many hours of enjoyable reading.

I’ve spent far too long on this blooming site (having started out trying to remember what Montgomery of Alamein’s first name was, then Wikipedia), even being inspired to sign up for a writers’ course, darn you! I may well now read one of your novels!

Dear Ken
I am visually impaired and love to read both Braille and listen to recorded books through the national library service under the umbrella of the Library of Congress. Right now my guide dog and I are so loving ‘Whiteout’ and the story is robbing us of our sleep, but well worth it. I have read ‘A Place Called Freedom’ and ‘The Pillars of the Earth’, fabulous!

Dear Ken,
I can’t believe I haven’t read any of your books before. I just picked up ‘The Pillars of the Earth’ because I thought it looked good and I had nothing to read. I love long novels because I never want them to end. Was I surprised, I could not put it down and read it all in a couple of days. I just finished it and went on the web to see if you had a site. I am so excited to read all of your books. You are the best writer I have ever had the pleasure to read. I am so glad I found you! I was ecstatic to see you are writing a sequel to ‘Pillars’. It is my favorite novel of all time.
