    Ken Follett and John Lee, the author and narrator of Pillars of the Earth and World Without End, are back together again for Fall of Giants, the first in The Century Trilogy. They recently chatted with Audible editor Diana Dapito about the new epic book, and what it was like to write and record it.

    "Love John Lee"
    Overall

    John Lee is my favorite narrator. Ken Follett is one of my favorite authors. I was pretty surprised that Ken was completely unfamiliar with John's work. Ken, take some time and listen to the man that brings your words to life!!!! I can't even begin to imagine Pillars or WWE without John Lee. Wow

  • Solomon's Song: The Australian Trilogy, Book 3

    Story
    (963)

    Here is the story of two families, branches of the Solomons, transported to an alien land. Both branches eventually grow rich and powerful. But through three generations, the families never, for one moment, relinquish their hatred for each other. This novel is also the story of Australia, from its beginnings to its coming of age as a nation.

    Anne says: "Breathtaking!"
    "If only to finish the trilogy"
    Overall

    I won’t spoil this book for those who have not yet listened to it. I will just say that after the absolutely perfect 10 star epic Potato Factory, and the lesser but almost equally enjoyable, Tommo and Hawk, this finale comes up short. The author has dropped his previous deep character development for an anti-war statement that the listener can see coming from a mile away. So many great storylines just piddle out and the entire book shifts into nothingness, with a completely predictable and abrupt "message" ending. I absolutely love this trilogy and am so sad that it ended with such disappointment. Having said that, the overall story was well worth the credits and I'm 90% happy with it all. Then again, I was 200% happy after The Potato Factory :)
