    " Not a bad story; was worth the time spent reading it. Now I can say I have read all of Ken Follett's books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 2/13/2014

    " Fun, but cheap, like a plastic toy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shelly N. | 1/31/2014

    " it was just ok...but i finished it nonetheless! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt Blackburn | 1/30/2014

    " Pretty decent. I think I liked the Modigliani scandal better, though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristina | 1/17/2014

    " It was a good story but I didn't really feel it was the end of the book at the end. I'd like to know more about what happened and where the characters went. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Manuela | 1/16/2014

    " Inutile. Neanche da sotto l'ombrellone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria Marinas | 1/11/2014

    " What a finding! A light, short book about political, economical and financial troubles in London.. Rings a bell? The fun part is that it is written in 1976.... superb! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joseph | 12/30/2013

    " The first few chapters were a bit tough to lock-in, what with many characters in the near-lead role; but as the novel progressed, everything came in nicely. A nicely written piece "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris Perrin | 11/14/2013

    " It's funny, Mr. Follette said this was the best of his unpopular novels, but I thought it paled in comparison to with Modigliani Scandal. Still, it's worth a read, just don't expect too much. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sandi | 11/5/2013

    " One of his early books and not one of my favorite. Very anti-climatic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frank Juarez | 10/1/2013

    " An Excellent book. it has solid Characters , is a good bank robbery yarn and the reader gets the side benefit of learning how things work in the banking industry Circa 1980 "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sandeep Deb | 4/29/2013

    " What a waste of time... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ross Warren | 4/24/2013

    " Hard to follow if you dont remember the many names in the different stories.. They *kinda* come together in the end.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff Dickison | 3/20/2013

    " One of Follet's early books and not one of his best. Thank God he improved into one of the really good authors. The signs of greatness are here, but they often get lost in his jumbled storyline. Recommended only to individuals who wish to track his development. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rick | 3/17/2013

    " Very different from Ken Follett's other books. Not a historical fiction, a la Pillars of the Earth, nor a spy novel a la Key to Rebecca. But this is the story of an eventful day in the crime world of London in the 70s. Very fun, very quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carlos | 7/1/2012

    " Hard, really hard to put down "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Radha | 6/16/2012

    " You win some...u lose some! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Martha | 2/20/2012

    " This was a very long and boring book. I do not know why I finished it since I could have been reading a much better book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert Bilicki | 2/13/2012

    " I have read almost all of Ken Follett's books. They are great stories "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bryan Cavanagh | 1/31/2012

    " Easy to read and the plot moves along quickly. Enjoyable but the ending felt hurried. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noelle | 1/19/2012

    " A fun look at a great writer's early career. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 9/28/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anthony | 2/14/2011

    " There were elements that started off interesting, but in the end I found it to be a little flat. I'm still not a fan of his regular fiction. His historical books are more my speed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 1/4/2011

    " A fast paced thriller with too many characters and a complex plot. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Manuela | 11/25/2010

    " Inutile. Neanche da sotto l'ombrellone. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ralph | 7/12/2009

    " Not nearly as good as his later work... a crime caper that just seems to end without any closure "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frank | 9/19/2008

    " An Excellent book. it has solid Characters , is a good bank robbery yarn and the reader gets the side benefit of learning how things work in the banking industry Circa 1980 "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tad | 9/8/2008

    " Wouldn't recommend to anyone. Follett's tale of the day in the life of a London newspaper is a quick, easy read but there's too much hanky-panky and too many characters. The newspaper parts were fun and relevant for a 30-year-old book, but that's about it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Valerie | 5/25/2008

    " Lots going on, but surprisingly boring. Hard to keep up with all of the characters b/c there are so many of them (little character development), but the whole story happens in one day. "
