I've read 'Pillars' and the subsequent follow up and enjoyed them both greatly. 'The Man from St. Petersburg' is an excellent book! The characters, background, politics, and plot are outstanding. It engaged me all the way through and I was sad that it came to an end! Follett is a master storyteller and is exceptional when it comes to intimate scenes. Highly recommended by this book addict!

I read this book for my Honors Geography 9 class. This book takes place in the early 1900's and follows critical men through their struggle to nagotiate a way for alliances in war. Meanwhile a Russian anarchist is trying to assanate one of them. In this book, I learned about about the way the social classes were in England. How some are filthy rich and others are dirt poor. I liked the way the author (Ken Follett) depicted Feliks, and the way he did things as an anarchist. I feel this book was written within my reading level, although my reading level is well above my age. I would recommend this book to almost anybody, it has a little of everything.

As expected from Ken Follett, this is another in a long line of very good books. Interesting, keep me guessing until the end... Love it.

Ken Follett never ceases to amaze me with his stories and his characters. I love reading his books. I can't put them down. In fact I put another book down to read this one!!

I enjoyed every moment of it the first time I read it and enjoyed it still all the five times I reread it.

More Follett, this one was a little more low-key. I learned the difference between a coachman and a footman. Every time I read about the villian, I pictured my old Don in a top hat and frock coat, with a round black bomb shouting "Down with the Czar!" I'll read more of his, but I may start at the most recent work, and work backwards.

Nicely done, and with good character development. There's plenty of action to hold ones interest. Moves quickly.

It is impossible to put this book down to be read another day. The story has you sitting on the edge of your chair quickly turning pages. Cannot WAIT for the next exciting Ken Follett book.
