Ken Follett is one of the world’s best-loved authors, selling more than 160 million copies of his thirty books. Follett’s first bestseller was Eye of the Needle, a spy story set in the Second World War. In 1989 The Pillars of the Earth was published, and has since become the author’s most successful novel. Actually, I thought it must have been written by a ghostwriter! As I said, there is no cause to go Into detail for my reasoning.

I have been a long time reader and great admirer of Mr. Follett' s works from all his early spy and espionage books to his masterpieces in Pillar's of the Earth, World Without End and his 20th century trilogy! When I noticed Whiteout on Amazon, I couldn't believe there was a Follett book that I had not read!
Without to much critiquing, let me just say that in my opinion, this was by far the worst book of his career! I found none of his talent encompassed in this book. Actually, I thought it must have been written by a ghostwriter!

As I said, there is no cause to go Into detail for my reasoning. I urge long time Follett readers to engage in this book and draw there own conclusions!

If this book had come with a free sample of the lethal virus, I would have taken it about halfway through.

The plot had potential. The end.

Worst of all was the character development. Oxenberg came across as a marginally intelligent buffoon, and Toni could have been the protagonist in almost any Danielle Steele "novel".

It got that second star because, after all, this is Ken Follett. If you like reading about lethal viruses, pick up any of Richard Preston's books. The Hot Zone is the most well known, but all are great. If you like Ken Follett, pick up....well, anything but this.

A gambling addict and computer genius decides to use his computer skills and knowledge of the security system for a biological laboratory to resolve his gambling debt. The laboratory, owned by his father, was looking for ways to deal with a deadly, incurable virus. The son developed the security system for the laboratory and it was not possible for it to fall victim to compromise ... except by him. When his father stopped covering his gambling losses he became desperate, just as the gambling syndicate intended. The plan seemed simple enough: infiltrate without detection, steal the virus samples and meet the buyers the next day for payoff. Set in Scotland, a minor snowfall prediction turns into a full scale blizzard upsetting the plan resulting in a series of snap decisions that ends up with a hostage situation at the home of the lab’s owner. Twists and turns, colorful and interesting characters and terrorism threats keep the reader turning pages rapidly.

I just finished reading this book, Whiteout. I've been reading hard all day. Good thing I am camping and had no responsibilities. I could not put this down. Instead of chapter titles, Follett put the time..it moved so quickly. I am breathless but fulfilled. Truly this is an epic of a page-turner. A true definition of that.

I was disappointed with this book. It COULD have been a great story, if only he'd left out the teenage "I can't tune out what's going on in my pants" bits. Really? Even though you're in a very dangerous situation right now? I'm no prude, but it was so heavy handed and sloppy that it distracted me from the suspense. After a while, I gave up. Too bad.

I love all of Ken Follett's books. Of all the books I have read of his he never fails to deliver. I have watched him grow up from a very young handsome man to an older, statesman like gentleman who is still handsome and is still a great author. If Follett's books can't hold your attention you must have a problem. He is simply great.

Action-packed and thrilling from start to finish keeping the reader guessing until the last of the story. Interesting characters and their lives were completely engrossing. The ending was somewhat predictable but overall the book was a good story.
After reading several Follett books, all of which I considered very good, this was a
disappointment. The tight timeline did not make sense - to me. And maybe it was
too many characters - whatever, I had a hard time keeping them straight. In fairness,
the plot did make it a good enough read that I finished.

One thing to keep in mind - these good authors are smart enough to make the Kindle
"sample" intriguing enough to buy the book!

And if and when another Follett comes along, I'll go for it. He's one of the few
fiction writers I read all of his books. The other, of course, being Grisham.....
