This was a really great book. As all of Follet's are. As always, he develops the characters very well and gives all sides of the story. I did not find myself favoring the villain, namely 'Priest', in this book as with other Follet titles. The plot is a little extreme and hard to fathom, but still a relevant one in the modern society. Basically, a collective in California attempts to set earthquakes as a way to stop the government from destroying their land. This book was a page-turner to the end, and always another surprise. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Follet, but do not expect his absolute best. As far as novels go this one rates high, but not nearly as good as most of his other titles.

The book was poorly written, characters were not developed and language was very shallow. Highly unrealistic in dialoge and plot

This is a formulaic read. It is also not Ken Follett's best output. However, it is entertaining and it is worth buying and reading. The Pillars of the Earth and The Eye of the Needle are fine novels, and Mr. Follett is a excellent writer and this book is worth your time. Wild but believable plot, interesting characters with some backstory but very little character growth outside of the love interest by the Federal agent.

The story attracts attention but everyone must feel that there are too many coincidences, too many attractive girls and boys, etc.. I rate is as author's second worst book after Place called freedom.

I've enjoyed several of his books, but this one seems to be a 'formula effort'. It's light, entertaining reading, but doesn't really grab you. The basic storyline seems a little dated, and certainly a bit strained for credibility. Somewhere underneath, there probably could have been a fascinating character study on Priest, as he develops into an egocentric cult leader, but the depth just isn't there. Too many phases are glossed over, entrusting that the reader will just take it for granted. Too bad.

Ken Follett is an amazing author. This however is not what one expects to read when they read a Follett novel. Hammer Of Eden has a goofy plot, which isn't a huge negative. What's bad is the complete ineptitude of almost every character in the book. Chapter after chapter it seems like every situation could be solved......but stupidity trumps everything and the "drama" rolls on. Follett's normal clever dialogue and plotting are nowhere to be found. Seriously, the bad ideas by both pro- and antagonists are amazingly absurd. Overall, just not worth the time.
