'An epic saga on a grand scale. Spiked with romance and intrigue ... This involving historical saga is the perfect read for long winter evenings' Choice 'Like Follett's classic novel, Pillars of the Earth, it quickly becomes a guilty pleasure' Daily Telegraph 'Perhaps no British author better illustrates the forces at work in international publishing than can give birth to, and then grow, a global brand ... If such books deliver the simple pleasures of escape, maybe they hold up a distant mirror to their readers too' Boyd Tonkin, Independent 'An extraordinary achievement' A.N. Wilson, Reader's Digest 'This is hi-octane storytelling all the more powerful because the story it tells is, mostly, true. Follett's command of the vast forces he unleashes is as impressive as the battle strategies of his generals, and in many cases more so ... overall Follett is masterly in conveying so much drama and historical information so vividly' Scotsman 'Follett has managed to write an accessible and fascinating page turner that leaves the reader wanting more, at the same time as staying true to history' Sunday Business Post 'He's pulled it off again with Fall of Giants: it's classic Follett with the brewing cataclysm of war given a human angle' Sunday Express 'Few works set out with such a grand concept as Ken Follett's new Century trilogy, but part one suggests that the series will be one of the literary masterpieces of our time ... while grand events and themes are at the core of the novel, it is the richness of the characters and the intertwining of their often disparate stories that steal the show' Sunday Times 'The master storyteller Ken Follett knits together British, American, German and Russian points of view from the start to the end of the First World War into a fascinating and remarkably fertile tapestry of society and politics' The Times --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.
Ken Follett was twenty-seven when he wrote EYE OF THE NEEDLE, an award-winning thriller that became an international bestseller. After writing several more successful thrillers he surprised everyone with THE PILLARS OF THE EARTH, about the building of a cathedral in the Middle Ages, which continues to captivate millions of readers all over the world. His last book was the long-awaited sequel, WORLD WITHOUT END, a number one bestseller in the United States, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Spain and France. --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.See all Product Description
