Book Review: Hammer of Eden by Ken Follett

This is a guest post courtesy Hubbs. Now over to him...

I have always been fond of Ken Follett. His unfolding of a story is tantalizing and as well as gripping.

In the book - Hammer of Eden - he takes the most unlikely of concepts and makes it a terrifying
thought. Imagine a bunch of commune dwelling radicals having the idea and finding the means to set off controlled earthquakes just to bring down the urban egocentric and conceited know-it-alls. Follett has done some extensive research on seismic studies to pull this off.

I will of course not cover the story thereby ruining all the excitement. What I will do is recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a thriller at breakneck speed.

A warning to the busy bodies.... You might leave ur daily activities and finish the book at one go :-P. So if you are prepared for this go for it and savor the complete essence of Ken Follett. Go on get hammered... 

Linking this to AtoZ challenge - K is for Ken Follett


  1. It's been quite a while since I read a Ken Follett book - gripping to say the least. I haven't read this one and will put it on my list of 'to-read'. Thanks, Mr Menon! ;)

  2. Sounds great! I love Ken Follett! Have read his The third twin, Pillars of the earth, Eye of the needle... His thrillers are simply thrilling!

  3. Not much into thriller type books but will keep a lookout for this book!
