    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.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I doubt it. Enjoyed the reader more than the writer.


    Has Fall of Giants turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. I still like historical novels.


    What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Excellent narration. Clear and easy to listen too. Although his American accent needs work, I really enjoyed his take on the European and Russian characters. I must say I probably would not have stuck this one out if not for his skill as a narrator.


    Was Fall of Giants worth the listening time?

    Although I enjoyed learning about WW1 and got somewhat involved with the characters, I also thought it dragged at times and could have used a bit of humor and less awkward sex scenes that just seemed so out of place for this genre.
