“Just as potent, engrossing, and prolix as the opening opus, Fall of Giants. [Follett’s] dedication and ability to keep so many plots spinning while delivering a story that educates, entertains…Will leave fans eagerly awaiting the trilogy’s crowning capstone."
“Follett’s storytelling is unobtrusive and workmanlike…he spins a reasonable and readable yarn that embraces dozens of characters and plenty of Big Picture history.”
“Follett never lets the action lag as he adeptly ties together all the sweeping economic, cultural, political, and social transformations of the entire era.”
“It’s a book that will suck you in, consume you for days or weeks… then let you out the other side both entertained and educated."
— USA Today on Fall of Giants
“Meticulously researched and deftly weaves together historical fact, fictional characters and engrossing storytelling.”
— Associated Press on Fall of Giants
"A tireless storyteller...grippingly told, and readable to the end."
—The New York Times Book Review on Fall of Giants
"Suspenseful, tightly constructed, sharply characterized, plot-driven...some of the biggest-picture fiction being written today."
—The Seattle Times
