Editorial review

Amazon very best of the Month, September 2010: Welcome to the twentieth century as youcff0478#39;ve never observed it. At over 1,000 pages, Fall of Giants gives you the entire parts that fanatics of Ken Follett have come to treasure: ancient accuracy, richly evolved personas, and a sweeping yet intimate portrait of a previous world that youcff0478#39;ll fully inhabit before the 1st chapter is through. the tale follows 5 households across the globe as their fates intertwine with the strange occasions of global struggle I, the political battles inside of their own countries, and the rise of the feminist movement. Intriguing tales of love and loyalty abound, from a forbidden romance between a German secret agent and a British aristocrat to a Russian santiqueier and his scandal-ridden brother in love with the similar girl. action-filled with blood on the battlefield and conspiracies in the back of closed doorways, Fall of Giants brings the nuances of each and every persona to life and shifts easily from dirty coal mines to glowing palaces. dirty such a lot to love right here, and the good news is the tip is just the beginning: Fall of Giants is the 1st in a planned trilogy. --Miriam Landis
