By Ken Follett
After a long bout of history, it was a pleasure to read something simpler, though no less exciting, from my latest-favorite author, Ken Follett. Compared to his Century Trilogy and other works though, The Hammer of Eden was more like a quick pop - an interesting story based on some science, with the right dose of drama and suspense. It made for light reading, and could be read pretty easily in parts. While the story is written in two parallel tracks, it is really quite simple to follow. Light-reading for the weekend.
