5.0 out of 5 stars A BIG book!
Ken Follett's new novel, "Fall of Giants", is a big boy. It's so big that it could be used as a door stop for a steel door. But I have a feeling that most people reading this review already know it's a big book and don't expect anything less from Ken Follett.
"Giants" is the first in a trilogy about the 20th century. At least I assume it is, because this book...

1.0 out of 5 stars Why change history?
I have long been a fan of Ken Follett, who usually writes brilliantly. But this time? Well, I agree with the other reviews I have just read that gave Follett only one star. I am not a professional historian (although I am a professor emeritus of Russian Language and Literature) but why would Follett change well-known historical facts?
I mention only two. The...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fall of Giants by Ken Follett.,
I simply could not put the book down. I've always loved Ken Follett's books, but I think
he's outdone himself in this new trilogy.
5.0 out of 5 stars An Instant Classic,
Ken Follett does it again! This is a fantastic read rich in characters you will love and the history up to the end of WWI. The only problem with it is that once you finish, you now have to wait months for the second book!
4.0 out of 5 stars Great reading,
Great reading i'm told. It was a gift I gave my partner, and he doesn't seem to be able to put it down.
5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked from the beginning to the end!,
This review is from: Fall of Giants: Book One of the Century Trilogy (Paperback)
I was absolutely delighted with this book. It was the first book I had read by this author, but have read a couple more since I was so impressed with the quality of the writing, the historical facts, character development, and story development. It is a thick book to read, but one that was hard to put down, I got so involved with the characters. I highly recommend it for most people. It has a lot going on, but is in no way a difficult read.
5.0 out of 5 stars The first in a wonderful trilogy,
This is the beginning of a journey I won't forget for a long time. Here we meet the characters, see how they live and survive beginning in June of 1911. Ken Follett captures me, and won't let go until the last page.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fall of Giants....book one,
I give this historical novel Fall of Giants five stars because Ken Folett has the ability in his writing to transport me to the time and place, and to feel and see and hear and understand what is going on with the characters. I get to travel in the comfort of my home and to produce a movie in my mind...wonderful.
