It was my first book by Ken Follet as well.
The characters were described into detail and you could feel their emotions whilst reading the book.
The story starts in Paris and continues after a sudden change of location in Afghanistan in times of the Afghan-Russian war. Though it describes the effect of a war, it is not glorifying it - it shows all the disastrous effects on people. Follett does not stop in describing the enemies, he shows their internal conflicts, as for example of this Russian general.
Of course, one could say it is the typical black/white-thing - and it definitiely is and that end is much too happy, but -still- the book is one of the best I have ever read.

Follett's common theme of creating vivid characters and aiming them on a collision course takes you to Afghanistan during the Soviet invasion. Lie Down with Lions moves fast and has one of the most intense sexual scenes I have ever read. Like a metaphor for the book as a whole, the same characters are soon on an icy trek over the Himalyas.

Like his lovers, the book is hot and cold. The plot is thin and implausible. The bad guys are two dimensional. But Follett's descriptive powers are in good form. This is a great book for a boring trans-continental flight.

I read the book again few days ago to make sure that I had not missed anything of importance the first time around. I hadn't. The book is a pleasant reading with sensual and real people that capture the imagination. Now my question is this. Why on earth did the author and/or the publisher allow this story to be ruined in a terrible movie? It would not surprise me if that movie didn't manage to turn hundreds of people off Follett for good. Still I am waiting for the next Pillars of the Earth, Eye of the Needle etc.

One of Follett's best, Lie Down with Lions is a fast-paced, intriguing read. While I feel he will never touch Eye of the Needle, Pillars of the Earth or The Man from St. Petersburg (hence, the four-star rating), Lie Down with Lions showcases Follett's best skills virtually on every page. If you have never read Follett, start with one of the aforementioned books. They are his best (especially "...Needle" and "Pillars...") and will make you appreciate some of the finer nuances in Lie Down with Lions. My only gripe (I WON'T ruin the plot) is that the last 80 pages were a little too detail-oriented giving the effect of being just a TAD too slow-paced. Only a tad though. Certainly not enough to keep anyone from reading this fine novel. But it is somewhat like exiting the freeway at 70mph and suddenly having to do 55mph. 55mph is still quite fast for the surface streets, but 70mph was better (for the freeway, of course)! Take this book on vacation. Read it over a lazy three-day weekend. Use it as a wonderful escape during your lunch hour. Just don't do what I did: clocked in late from lunch everyday! Enjoy!
