    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.

    What did you like best about Fall of Giants? What did you like least?

    I liked learning about the WWI history in an easy manner, i.e. the personal stories of characters in each involved country. It was contrived at times, but entertaining.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Ken Follett? Why or why not?

    Yes, as I'd like to continue the saga.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Narration was great...voices believable.


    Could you see Fall of Giants being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Too long and involved for a good movie.


    Any additional comments?

    Not as good as Pillars of Stone, but good.

    When a notorious millionaire banker hangs himself, his death attracts no sympathy. But the legacy of a lifetime of selfishness is widespread, and the carnage most acute among those he ought to be protecting: his family. Meanwhile, in a wealthy suburb of Glasgow, a young woman is found savagely murdered. The community is stunned by what appears to be a vicious, random attack.

    Kathy says: "misled by a review but I still liked it"

    Would you listen to The End of the Wasp Season again? Why?

    Good and involved story. Not at all boring. First I've read by this author, and I'll read more.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, good characters and plot you could not figure out.


    What about Jane McFarlan’s performance did you like?

    Great!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, too long, but I did listen for 2 hours at least each time.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent author.
