Format: Mass Market Paperback
One of Follett's first spy-thrillers - Triple - is a typical cat and mouse spy novel, which is characterized by many dynamic characters all of which play a big and even role in the plot. From all ends of the political and religious spectrum - Follett introduces various characters right in the beginning of the novel with an unlikely meeting of future foes. The story begins at Oxford University in London England, where a group of students participate in political discussions. What they don't know is that their political differences will some day become more than just political differences. Eventually they'll all be at different ends of the race for nuclear weapons in the mid-East.
I enjoyed the novel profoundly. It was a very good weekend page-turner, and I would suggest it to anyone who admires Follett's work. The reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because I've read more recent work of his including the Key to Rebecca, the Pillars of the Earth, and A Dangerous Fortune - All three much deserving of 5 stars. Although a great novel, I still must limit Triple to 4 stars because it's not quite on the level of entertainment as those aforementioned. The writing style of Follett is unique and he produces great stories with awesome skill. If you have not read those three novels I've mentioned, please take time to read them. You'll be incredibly entertained if you were to read any of them - with my personal favorite being The Pillars of the Earth.

I'm usually not big into spy novels...but I'm a big fan of follett so I gave this book a try. At some times I found it a little hard to follow. There's several names and factions from different countries going back and forth. But the ending is as good as any slam bang ending from a spy/action novel as you'll get. Great action once again.
Follett has a talent for weaving fictional characters and stories around real life events and places. This book is no exception. While not my favorite of Follett's various works, this is definetly a solid read that's worth a look.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Triple is a spy novel set in the mid-60s when Israel is rushing to beat the Arabs in a race to build an atomic bomb. This book as all the action, suspense and romance you'd expect from Follet. His research is excellent and this book is very believable. As one of Follet's earlier novels, it definitely stands the test of time.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Ken Follett once again writes an incredibly compelling novel. "Triple" begins at protagonist Nat Dickstein's release from the concentration camps, and goes ahead to 1968. Of three groups - Dickstein representing Israel, as well as spies from the KGB and Egypt - who will ultimately wind up with the uranium to build a nuclear weapon?
The way Follett recreates history, the book COULD be true. He does a marvelous job, even when the point of view goes from one spy to another. This is NOT a "light read" but it's intriguing... captivating... and worth your time.

So far as captivating page-turners go, few writers of popular fiction can top Ken Follett when he is at his best, and though I've not read all his novels, I definitely consider Triple (a political thriller) to be one of the best of those I've read. (Other favourites of mine are A Dangerous Fortune and The Third Twin--and I am eager to read The Pillars of the Earth).
Briefly (and without giving anything away), the plot centres around three secret agents--one from Israel's Mossad, one from Russia's KGB, and one from Egypt's Intelligence Agency. It involves the arms race between the Israelis and the Arabs and takes place in 1968. I really can say no more other than to mention that one of these groups has an idea for ensuring that it remains a competitor in that race, and the method the agent has for bringing that idea to fruition (and this is what the novel is all about) is complex and really quite ingenious.
Stripped to its most basic level, this could be said to be something of a cat and mouse story. However, there is so very much more to it than that, for Follett is a master storyteller who not only excels in deftly handling relationships between individuals (no mean feat in itself!) but is simply brilliant at creating characters that the reader cares about and hence in writing novels that one hates to reach the end of.
Though not a light read, this novel is certainly enlightening. I, for one, learned a fair bit about Middle Eastern politics and something about nuclear weaponry. Further, I felt Follett did a splendid job of conveying the political situation from the points of view of both the Israelis and the Palestinians in a manner that simultaneously evoked both sympathy for and censure of both sides.

Making an atomic bomb is easy to do if you have a nuclear plant and the raw material (yellowcake) to make the uranium needed. Egypt has been successful in building the plant but now they need the yellowcake. Israel also has a plant and is in dire need of the same raw material.The Russians are backing the Arabs in this race so we have the agents from the Mossad, the KBG, and the Arabs and a double agent thrown in for an advantage to which nation? Ken Follett is a great writer of suspense and keeps you guessing thru the entire book as to who is going to steal and keep the stolen goods. Schoolmates from Oxford and one of their professors from ten years ago seek to favor one country over the other. We know the prof favors one country but who does his daughter favor? Who comes up with a reasonable way to transport thethousands of tons of yellowcake and who figures out a way to steal it from them? You won't want to put this book down until the end so plan on loosing some sleep. After you finish this book you may want to catch your breath before you start another of Follett's books, "Eye of the Needle" which is another suspensful spy story of WW II vintage. Both deserve more than a five star rating.
