EYE OF THE NEEDLE by Ken Follett
- This one , regarded as the best work of Ken Follett, is probably not exactly his best when it comes to the depth in which characters are described and analysed. But, it is definitely his best work when it comes to the sheer pace and excitement offered.
- The prime character Die Nadel - The Needle is classily etched and the way he transforms from an adorable protagonist to a detestable antagonist is remarkable.
- Creating a pivotal powerful Lady character has been one of Follett's trademarks and the one here - the Storm Island woman Lucy - is one of the best of such creations of his.
- The vivid descriptions of the scenic Storm Island and the quickfire romance are other highlights.
