His writing syle is such that you immediately fall in with him and start thinking alongside. For instance, the entire book is written from the perspective of an outsider or a diplomat who would like to deal the Pakistan state. There is little analysis of Pakistan's domestic policies or problems, except to the extent that these influence its foreign policies. There is little information on Pakistan's economy or social institutions.

I read this book the day after Remembrance Sunday in the UK, inspired to choose it from the library after reading a lot in the news about World War II.

Eye Of The Storm follows the lives of six people - Colonel David Clarke of the army, his wife Gwen Clarke, her lover George (an American Typhoon pilot in the RAF), a French farm girl called Martine, her German lover Otto and SS-Obersturmbannführer Jochen Peiper - during June 1944. We see the war from many different sides - Martine's farm in France ends up the scene of a battle between the British and the Germans whilst she is hiding her lover; Gwen's affair with the American pilot whilst her husband is away is discovered and she has to re-evaluate what is important in her life. Even George the American is forced to confront his own behaviour.

This book is well written and moves along at a reasonable pace. The fighting scenes are described very well and it's possible to imagine what's going on - not always an easy task with books writing about battles. One thing that Catherine Jones features very strongly is the fear of the participants - they are afraid but they carry on regardless; many books make you think that the combatants were as breezy and unafraid as they projected on the outside and I liked the reality of this book as it showed you how they were afraid so much of the time.

This book is well worth a read for those interested in the war and in the way that it affected relationships and the ways in which people coped with fear and danger.
Eye of the storm follows a group of characters from both sides of the War through the tumultuous ending of WW II. I listened to the unabridged audio edition, and found parts of it entertaining, other parts a bit stilted and slow. The first hour, I found was pretty dull. There were also a few too many characters, some of which weren't all that interesting. In the audio edition, the transitions between various characters were particularly awkward. One minute you are on a ship... The next minute in France. Since the transitions occurred mid chapter I found this frustrating, especially when some of the characters such as the German Officer were not that exciting.

My favorite bits were the parts between the German soldier deserter and his romance with the French farm girl. I also found the adulterous woman in England grew on me. The author was masterful at portraying the attitude of the times... I just wished she'd ditched a few of the less interesting characters and focused on the two female leads and their beaus.
