Publisher Description

Ken Follett’s magnificent 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. . . .

Great Book

I picked this book up just before a long flight and was pleasantly surprised. As someone with an interest in history I was very impressed with how the author tied his fictional characters into a real historical world. For those who like drama, with the benefit of a history lesson thrown in, you can't go wrong with this book.

This colourful historical drama is a must read. Follett at his personal best.

Masterpiece

I have always been fascinated with the history of the XXth century, and the way this novel takes us through the Great War is simply amazing. We get attached so quickly to the characters and we can relate to them, which makes the story even more captivating.
