     Lightening fast!! 15 October, 2013 On
    The year is 1958 , in the midst of the cold war. The Soviets have steered ahead in the space program with the launch of their first satellite and their American counterparts are reeling under pressure to launch their first satellite. And the launch in question has already been delayed twice due to some mechanical shortcomings.
    Unaffected by all this a man wakes up in a public toilet of a railway station without any memory of his previous occurrence. Such was the condition that he couldn’t remember his name. Anxious and puzzled by his own state he set on the path to rediscover himself and the cause of his present state. Page by page the mystery unveil and the different events cohere together to unveil the bigger picture.

    Although the story by itself was nothing out of the ordinary, it was the Mr. Follett narration which kept me glued to the book till the very end. So much so that many may predict the end halfway through the book but as I said it’s the narration which score over the plot. Mr Follett superb eloquence makes this ordinary story a pleasure to read. His ways of mixing fact with fiction has to be commended as it leaves a very faint distinction between the two.
    The admirer of this genre can pick this book anytime for a quick and entertaining read
