Publisher Description

Ken Follett's extraordinary historical epic, the Century Trilogy, reaches its sweeping, passionate conclusion.

In Fall of Giants and Winter of the World, Ken Follett followed the fortunes of five international families—American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh—as they made their way through the twentieth century. Now they come to one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the 1960s through the 1980s, from civil rights, assassinations, mass political movements, and Vietnam to the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution—and rock and roll.

East German teacher Rebecca Hoffmann discovers she’s been spied on by the Stasi for years and commits an impulsive act that will affect her family for the rest of their lives. . . . George Jakes, the child of a mixed-race couple, bypasses a corporate law career to join Robert F. Kennedy's Justice Department and finds himself in the middle of not only the seminal events of the civil rights battle but a much more personal battle of his own. . . . Cameron Dewar, the grandson of a senator, jumps at the chance to do some official and unofficial espionage for a cause he believes in, only to discover that the world is a much more dangerous place than he'd imagined. . . . Dimka Dvorkin, a young aide to Nikita Khrushchev, becomes an agent both for good and for ill as the United States and the Soviet Union race to the brink of nuclear war, while his twin sister, Tanya, carves out a role that will take her from Moscow to Cuba to Prague to Warsaw—and into history.

Look out for Ken's newest book, A Column of Fire, available now.

Doesn't fail to live up to its promise

While anticipating the last installment of this trilogy I re read the first two volumes to refresh my memory this past summer. Enjoyed them as much as when I read them the first time.

This last volume was worth the wait.

Characters well developed and historical situations well explained.

Edge of Eternity

Several of Follett's books are among my favorites of all time. "Pillars", "Dangerous Fortunes", etc. This tale actually offended me by it's anti-American, anti-conservative bent, written by a foreigner. Very dissappointed.


Edge of Eternity

I think this book was written by the Democratic National Committee instead of Ken Follett. Every democrat is portrayed as noble, smart and caring. Every republican is portrayed as stupid, evil, and greedy.

I have read and enjoyed most Follett books, but now consider him a purely fiction writer vs historical fiction author. I am very disappointed because without a political slant this could have been a great book.
