    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.

    Keith says: "Ken Follett and John Lee / Audible's Dream Team"
    "not up to follett's usual work"
    Overall

    An enjoyable historical novel with interesting characters but... Follett uses excessive descriptions of sexual encounters that demean his work. Not sure I'll follow the sequels.

    Mexican drug cartels are shooting up the streets of Laredo and El Paso. Somali pirates are holding three U.S. tankers for ransom. The President of the United States is fed up and, as Commander in Chief, has what he thinks is a pretty bright idea — to get hold of Colonel Charley Castillo and his merry band and get them on the case. Unfortunately, that will be difficult. Everybody knows that the President hates Castillo’s guts, and has just had him forcibly retired from the military, and now Castillo’s men are scattered far and wide, many of them in hiding.

    Michael says: "TRIPE!!! Utter Tripe with horrible editing."

    Would you try another book from W.E.B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth and/or Dick Hill?

    I have read and listened to many if not most of W.E.B. Griffin's books and and have enjoyed most of them but this is one sorry excuse for a book. The first half of the book I kept wondering if I hadn't read it before because he repeated the last two books in the series. I persevered to finish the book to see if there wasn't some redeeming quality but I found none. What a silly waste of paper and electrons.
