The Bookcassette® format is a special recording technique developed as a means of condensing the full, unabridged audio text of a book to record it on fewer tapes. In order to listen to these tapes, you will need a cassette player with balance control to adjust left/right speaker output. Special adaptors to allow these tapes to be played on any cassette player are available through the publisher or some US retail electronics stores.

1.0 out of 5 stars Are you kidding me? March 16 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This has got to be the worst book Ken Follett ever wrote.
The story is ridiculous. Would the KGB, at the height of the cold war, really let some English woman on one of their prized spy ships, give her free reign to move around, and relate to her all the details of their top secret sources and methods? Please.
And of course a flight attendant has the skills to outwit a ship full of hardened KGB agents, and figure out how to destroy the ship, all in a few hours. Hello! And by the way, Ken, diesel fuel cannot be ignited by a cigarette.
The style was completely naive and painful to read as well. Endless exposition outside of the action, a rough draft of a book at best. If you like spy novels, read "The spy who came in from the cold." That's how spy novels should be written.
People giving 5 stars for this tripe? Can you say "shill"?

4.0 out of 5 stars Follet is constistently good March 1 2004
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars the ending makes the book worthit Dec 9 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars In my defence Aug. 24 2010
By wayner
Format:Mass Market Paperback
For the first time in my life I actually screwed up so bad that I actually bought a book which I already had, and have already read. Triple is actually an excellent book. After I got Ken Follets book "Pillars of the Earth" I was so impressed I not only read the magnificent followup "World without End" in 6 days (1,000 pager)but also read every book ken Follet ever wrote......"Eye of the Needle", awesome ....."The Jackdaws", should be a movie.

But in my defence, your add made it look like "Triple" WAS a new release, nowhere on the promotion did it say 're-release', or 'HERE AGAIN!!' Because in about a month Fen Follet IS coming out with a new book called "Fall of Giants" so I thought that this release was that book.

But it was so cheap that the postage to return it (plus the bother) didn't seem worth the effort so I just gave the book to a neighbor. So I don't blame you and will still do business with your fine company.

5.0 out of 5 stars Espionage and romance, Follett style May 5 2003
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Triple Action June 12 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The story took half the book to get all the pieces together. I had to have a side sheet listing the names of the players to keep it all straight. Then it was like a runaway train going down the track from there on into the end. Very good detail, very good personalities, all seemed real, complex enough to keep you thinking and a cliff hanger right to the end. Typlical Follett. I am going to have to re-read it to figure out why the title "Triple". A well worthwhile read!
