Dear Ken,
I’m Italian. I am one of the millions of your fans. I think you are great, you are the best writer at the moment. I read a lot of your books and I loved them.
My favorite book is ‘The Pillars of the Earth’, and I’m waiting for the sequel…

Just read ‘Hornet Flight’. Wow – I loved it. You are the ‘doctor of suspense’ as far as I am concerned. Thank you for writing this. I truly enjoyed it.

I have just started reading your books this year and have thoroughly enjoyed the ones I have read so far. I have read ‘Night Over Water’, ‘The Third Twin’, ‘A Dangerous Fortune’ and have just started ‘The Pillars of the Earth’. You are an amazing author and I look forward to reading your other books.

Dear Ken

I was introduced to your books in January 2007 and I have since read eleven of them, they are the best books I have ever read…! My favourite so far was ‘The Pillars of the Earth’ but I am now reading ‘A Place called Freedom’ which is just pipping it.

Thank you for making my hobby even more enjoyable.

This is just to tell of how it felt like reading your book ‘On Wings Of Eagles’. That’s the first time I’ve read any of your works and I enjoyed it immensely. l wish l had a more vivid adjective to describe it.

Dear Ken Follett,

This being my first visit to your website I am pleased to learn that a sequel to ‘The Pillars of the Earth’ will be available. ‘The Pillars of the Earth’ was the first of your books that I read and I have given or recommended it to numerous friends and relations and they have all been thrilled about it. I have now read all your books – and I am pleased to say, that I own all of them. I must say that I have been looking forward to another novel from your hand.

Kind regards from one of your numerous Danish fans,

I look forward to your letters. Please write to me via the Contact page, and do see earlier letters

If you’ve read several of my books, you might enjoy matching the first line with the title, or guessing the working title
