    ePUB Fall of Giants Kindle Ü Fall of Epub / æ american fiction.co æ fall epub, giants epub, Fall of book, Fall of Giants PDF/EPUBIt's a little disappointing that people are rating this book on out of protest of its price It's low rating does not give the book the recognition it deserves This is my first Ken Follett novel and I am hooked I've read where some people have not been that interested in the subject matter of Fall of Giants and prefer the Middle Ages I'm fascinated with 20th Century history so this is right down my alleyThis novel covers the years of WWI and the Russian Revolution and follows 5 families Their stories all connect at some point While you invest in the characters the story is plot driven and moves pretty swiftly through the years There are times that a character may be left for a year before we hear from him again But you don't feel like you're missing any crucial information

Let me rephrase This book is a steaming pile of garbage Still a bit mean? It doesn’t matter Ken Follett does not give a whit His editor and publisher do not care His accountant certainly is indifferent to this complaint It’s not that Ken Follett is critic proof because that implies that he achieves astronomical sales figures despite scathing reviews That’s not the case Rather he achieves those astronomical sales with the apathetic approbation of critics usually

    ePUB Fall of Giants Kindle Ü Fall of Epub / æ american fiction.co æ fall epub, giants epub, Fall of book, Fall of Giants PDF/EPUBOne of the early reviews I read stated that this book lacked one of Follett's infamous villains I disagree The ultimate villain in this enormous book is clearly war and perhaps the arrogance of world leaders I've always had a difficult time understanding the why surrounding World War 1 and this book helps put it in perspective even if it is fiction I remember learning in history class that the US got involved because the Germans torpedoed the Lusitania And it did play a part but that happened in 1915 and the US didn't declare war on Germany until late 1917early 1918 I STILL don't understand why Germany got all the blamewasn't it the Austria Hu

    ePUB Fall of Giants Kindle Ü Fall of Epub / æ american fiction.co æ fall epub, giants epub, Fall of book, Fall of Giants PDF/EPUBA sweeping epic with the pace of a thriller I could scarcely put it downThis ambitious novel the first of a projected trilogy covering most of the 20th century tells the story of five interrelated families—American German Russian English and Welsh—as they negotiate the tremendous events of the First World War and the Russian Revolution Through the various characters—and there are uite a few—we witness the First World War in the trenches and in the halls of government from each side of the conflict Revolutions on the home front from women’s suffrage to the rise of the workers keep pace It is a period of intense change a time when giants be they royalty tradition or whole nations are destined to fallFollett’s story builds like the coming of far off artillery fire Barely

    ePUB Fall of Giants Kindle Ü Fall of Epub / æ american fiction.co æ fall epub, giants epub, Fall of book, Fall of Giants PDF/EPUBAfter being highly impressed with the Pillars series created by Follett I hoped to find as much depth and development in the Century TrilogyThe premise following the fates of five interrelated families against a backdrop of world events is brilliant in its imagining and stellar in its delivery The reader is introduced to Billy Williams early in the novel as he enters the Welsh mining pits His family acts as a wonderful bridge as Billy's sister Ethel a housekeeper for the aristocratic Fitzherberts takes a fateful step outside her accepted caste Lady Maud Fitzherbert herself crosses deep into forbidden territory bridging the story into another family when she falls in love with Walter von Ulrich a German living in London while tensions mount and the Great War is imminent Filling out the cast of characters is Gus Dew
