3.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading Dec 24 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was written before the best selling Eye of the Needle back in 1976 and under a pseudonym. Follett considers it his best unsuccessful book. I consider it an interesting opportunity to see an early effort from a well known author. The story takes place in one day and involves about a half dozen people who have no idea how their lives are becoming interlinked by events. Were he to write the same story today, it would probably be tied together a bit differently and would be fleshed out a little more, but all the ingredients are there and if you have been a fan of this author, it is well worth your time to read this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a great book Sept. 8 2013

Not the best Follett I've ever read, kind of boring. I had read some other books by this author which were excellent, but I didn't find this one very interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suprising insight and depth Feb. 24 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first Ken Follett I have read and I understand it is an early effort. This novel is a wonderful invocation of London and various types that were around in the late 60s and early 70s. In a short space it paints a rich canvass of characters and has a very clever plot.
The insight into characters and "the way things work" is sharp and the sex is well handled without becoming prurient. I was amazed at the talent here ("I normally read more "serious" authors) and this is a cut above other best selling authors I sometimes have read. I intend to explore his other novels.

4.0 out of 5 stars Raise the average Dec 14 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm moved to add my opinion in defense of Paper Money and Ken Follett's substantial talent. It's all there from the beginning: his masterful plot design, his uncanny ability to humanize and give insight into "bad" characters. I too found the ending a little abrupt and lacking in traditional resolution. However, I would still highly recommend this to someone looking for a well crafted and propulsive "shorter" read.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Glimpe June 4 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
For all Ken Follet fans this is a must. In the foward of the first American release of his first novel, Follet admits that he tried too much in too little space and made things way too complicated. However, Paper Money allows us to se an established novelist when he was taking his first steps and see what lessons he learned.
If you like Follet, you will like this book. The same story teller is there. He just has learned to do it better and take his time. Avery short book with alot of story. Read it.
