    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.

    "Another great one"
    Overall

    I am extremely happy that I had the privilege to read another great book by Follett. The characters were great. I was captured from the beginning, waiting to get updates on all the characters. The narration was great, I like Lee's dramatic interpretation. If you want get hooked into a book, this is one. Art stirs emotion within. This book stirred plenty of emotion, happiness, anger, sadness, anticipation, etc. I was hooked. I strongly recommend.

    In Rip-Off!, 13 of today’s best and most honored writers of speculative fiction face a challenge even they would be hard-pressed to conceive: Pick your favorite opening line from a classic piece of fiction (or even non-fiction) - then use it as the first sentence of an entirely original short story.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Rip-Off! to be better than the print version?

    The narration by some of these narrators was great. The book introduced my to some new narrators I will seek out.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like the "Every Fuzzy Beast of the Earth, Every Pink Fowl of the Air" story. I thought the concept was great and I had a great chuckle. Great job Tad Williams.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the opening story. The imagery of folks flying through the sky was done well. I enjoyed "Highland Reel", the concept was great with a good story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was taken by Wil Wheaton's narration, he surprised me. As I said previously, Tad Williams' story was a good touching story. The astronaut story was touching.


    Any additional comments?

    I truly enjoyed this book. Thank you.
