A little slow to get going but shortly after I started, I found that I couldn’t put it down. What a story! It was extremely interesting and filled with substance. A page turner to be sure!

Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

Slow getting started but winds up after first couple of chapters until you can hardly put it down.
