I love books!
I started reading Follet's spy novels way back when and was a fan. I really enjoyed his trilogy about building a cathedral in medieval England. So he undertakes another epic trilogy this one starting with WWI. It was an enjoyable listen, gave me a good perspective on how all of the pieces of that war fit together, and I'll look forward to the next one. And, he weaves a nice, little story while educating us on history.
He does a great job
The story wasn't as strong as his other books. Follett was more interested in his characters hopping into the sack than giving us a good page turning story.
Give me a well written historical novel and I'm happy. I learn something and get one hell of a story.
John Lee is great! Simply great!
His gift with accents! His excitement while acting as a go between matches my own.
The house maid to member of parliament Eth is very attractive
Great book! When is the next one to begun, finished, recorded?
We are retired, have been full-time RVers for three years. We love listening to audio books while on the road.
Ken Follett's' books keep me spell bound, another novel that, for me, was hard to stop listening to until the end.
I love the time period of which he writes....my imagination soars!
The whole story.
John Lee did an excellent job in his narration, making the characters come to life.
I look forward to seeing the movie.
A great mix of history and fiction. Characters are well done and you get a real feel of the times. The narrator was off in the beginning. Too abrupt and lacking a natural rhythm. I did feel he got into the flow by the half way point and does do very well with the different character voices.
I would highly recommend this book. For one credit it is a no brainer. Can't wait for the next book in the series.
Follet is such a great writer. This book is wonderful and educational. I love the narrator he is terrific! If you liked pillars of the earth and enjoy US history this is for you.
This would be in my top 5 listens if not for the vulgar language and excessive sex scenes. Too bad it was ruined by that, for me.
Very interesting to hear how the war affected people of all walks of life. The story was pretty formulaic. But it was easy to read and enjoyable. The american accent of the story teller was a bit hard to take but other than that it was a really good job.
No way? He has lost his touch.
Not follett? Something with some action.
All war time.
Really slow and boring. Follett was great in the distant past.
Almost did not purchase this book because I was disapointed in World Without End. When Ken Follett is 'on' his characters step off the page and walk and talk right next to you. The story is attention binding and that is Fall of the Giants. Rich, poor, pampered or hardworking Follett brings them all to life. Cannot wait for the next part. John Lee does a great job especially when a book is this long - perfect summer read!
