Penguin Publishing Group | August 30, 2011 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Fall of Giants: Book One of the Century Trilogy is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Ken Follett’s magnificent new historical epic begins, as five interrelated families move through the momentous dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women’s suffrage.

A thirteen-year-old Welsh boy enters a man’s world in the mining pits.…An American law student rejected in love finds a surprising new career in Woodrow Wilson’s White House.… A housekeeper for the aristocratic Fitzherberts takes a fateful step above her station, while Lady Maud Fitzherbert herself crosses deep into forbidden territory when she falls in love with a German spy.…And two orphaned Russian brothers embark on radically different paths when their plan to emigrate to America falls afoul of war, conscription, and revolution.

From the dirt and danger of a coal mine to the glittering chandeliers of a palace, from the corridors of power to the bedrooms of the mighty, Fall of Giants takes us into the inextricably entangled fates of five families—and into a century that we thought we knew, but that now will never seem the same again.…

Rated 4 out of 5 by from War Changes Things This book fellows the life of several people, before, during, and after WW1. We see in this book how several world leaders, unwillingness to compermise brings about the start of WW1. There is also great insight in how devasting the affect of war has on families. There is also a great lesson in this book, on how arrogents of British officers got many soliders killed, who other wise may have lived. even though book has 800 pages, I found myself always wanted to find out more. This book was very hard to put down.
