    " This was a great book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy L. | 2/14/2014

    " Fascinating and suspenseful novel regarding Denmark's occupation by the Nazi's. The Danish Resistance became one of the most successful underground movements in Europe. It provided a continuous flow of military intelligence to the Allies, committed thousands of acts of sabotage against the occupying Nazi's and provided secret routes by which almost all Denmark Jew's escaped from the Nazi's. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marie | 2/10/2014

    " Read only one page. Too many adjectives! "He was a SHORT, VIGOROUS type with an ATHLETIC build, thirty years old, dressing in a PLAIN CHARCOAL GRAY suit and BLACK TOE-CAPPED shoes." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jemsparkle bibliophile | 2/9/2014

    " Before reading this book I had never given thought to the real danger faced by people during World War II.Fast paced,action packed,sitting-on-the-edge-of-the-seat gripping,Ken Follet does it again.He writes about World War II with the ease and expertise of a man who witnessed and experienced it firsthand. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sean Watson | 2/9/2014

    " I've heard of Ken Follett, but I'd not yet read him. This was an enjoyable WWII period piece and spy thriller. It's clearly historical fiction since it takes some liberties with known events such as the book being based on the Nazi's being ahead of the British in developing radar, but who cares, really? The characters were solid as was the writing, and it was a pleasant read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fussfehler | 2/6/2014

    " A- airplane read. Good story, characters have some texture "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daryl | 2/2/2014

    " Good story about the Danish Undergaround in WW2. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob Hanger | 1/30/2014

    " After reading this book, I learned that the story is based on a real event during WWII. A Danish lieutenant, Thomas Christian Sneum, and a pilot friend, who helped rebuild a Hornet Moth, actually made this night flight from Denmark to England to deliver film of a German radar installation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine | 1/22/2014

    " Loved it as I love all his books "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James | 1/19/2014

    " Good typical Follett thriller! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katherine | 12/31/2013

    " i am about 1/2 way thru, and, as expected, a really good read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mirah W | 12/14/2013

    " I think this is my favorite Follett book...WWII and spies...I would recommend this one over Follett's Pillars of the Earth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 11/28/2013

    " Other countries were involved in WW2 other than Germany. Who knew? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 11/8/2013

    " a lot of story with a lot of characters, none of which i ever became emotionally connected. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendell Jones | 11/8/2013

    " I'm a sucker for WWII books and Follett writes as many of them as anyone. Well crafted. Follett has a thing for heroines. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob | 11/2/2013

    " Nice story about the WWII Danish Resistance. Follett never dissapoints. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise Elerick | 9/28/2013

    " I thought this was a nice change from his other books I have read but as always, he does a great job of setting the tone for the times. It might be accurate and might not but it helped me get some sense of the aura of the era. This is a quick read that fit my mood to escape into another world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat Phillips | 9/19/2013

    " Another Follett success with a WWII backdrop. You don't want this one to end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patricia | 9/19/2013

    " Interesting, but not the edge of my seat page-turner that I was hoping for. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate Millin | 9/16/2013

    " Story of Harald a teenager living in Denmark in 1941 and how he, and people he knew, managed to get important information to England as a forerunner of the resistance movement there -excellent "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dacy Rieger | 3/3/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James Roy | 11/3/2012

    " I enjoyed it. I was entertained. It was a real quick read. It wasn't dynamic or magical... It was just a little better than good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greenwood | 8/2/2012

    " I read this shortly before after going to Denmark myself. Great story. Brilliantly written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shawn | 7/8/2012

    " Enjoyable spy/resistance story that takes place in Denmark during WWII during the Nazi occupation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sonya | 4/21/2012

    " Good brain candy and diversion. Espionage, the dutch resistance and WWII. Enjoyable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Roxanne | 4/15/2012

    " Follett developed a tried and true formula with his characters in past books, but it's getting tiring. The characters in his books are becoming interchangeable. A decent summer read if you don't have anything else. No heavy thinking and a Follett fan can pretty much guess what's coming next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 7/22/2011

    " I like Ken Follett's books set during World War II. This is one of those weaker, but still good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill | 5/19/2011

    " Fantastic story of adventure over the English channel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dacy | 5/6/2011

    " Entertaining. History and a love story all in one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 4/11/2011

    " Fast and Fun as Follett usually is. Also a good history lesson with the entertainment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kendar88 | 3/27/2011

    " A bit hard to get into at first, but soon it ties in just fine. A thrilling adventure that feels likely at first, but goes over-the-top at the end to go beyond believibility. But that's OK - a nice, fun story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Douglassjohnson | 3/3/2011

    " A decent read. Some of it wasn't really very realistic, but it wasn't too bad. My first Ken Follett book -- I have another on my list - hopefully it's better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 2/14/2011

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kris | 1/28/2011

    " well, i guess that wasn't the worst thing i've ever read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kent | 1/26/2011

    " This book made me cycle very slowly to and from work as I was listening to it. I wanted to hear as much as possible each time. Lots of drama, love, tragedy, humor and excitement.
    And... It doesn't hurt that the story is set in Denmark. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 1/11/2011

    " Just finished this one. Fabulous historical novel about the Danish resistance in WW2. Loved every minute "
