Publisher's Summary

Edge of Eternity is the sweeping, passionate conclusion to Ken Follett's extraordinary historical epic, The Century Trilogy.

Throughout these books, Follett has followed the fortunes of five intertwined families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they make their way through the 20th century. Now they come to one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the enormous social, political, and economic turmoil of the 1960s through the 1980s, from civil rights, assassinations, mass political movements, and Vietnam to the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution - and rock and roll.

East German teacher Rebecca Hoffman discovers she's been spied on by the Stasi for years and commits an impulsive act that will affect her family for the rest of their lives.…George Jakes, the child of a mixed-race couple, bypasses a corporate law career to join Robert F. Kennedy's Justice Department, and finds himself in the middle not only of the seminal events of the civil rights battle, but a much more personal battle of his own.…Cameron Dewar, the grandson of a senator, jumps at the chance to do some official and unofficial espionage for a cause he believes in, only to discover that the world is a much more dangerous place than he'd imagined.…Dimka Dvorkin, a young aide to Nikita Khrushchev, becomes a prime agent both for good and for ill as the United States and the Soviet Union race to the brink of nuclear war, while his twin sister, Tania, carves out a role that will take her from Moscow to Cuba to Prague to Warsaw - and into history.

As always with Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion. With the hand of a master, he brings us into a world we thought we knew but now will never seem the same again.

    "Sorry"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I was very disappointed that the book was abridged. That should have been selling point. I would really like to know that before buying the title.


    If you’ve listened to books by Ken Follett before, how does this one compare?

    It finished the trilogy for me. Liked his other books more.


    What about John Lee’s performance did you like?

    I do like John Lee./>He's part of the story for me.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Like I said it finished the trilogyy for me. I would like to know what I missed.

    "Not Marked Well"

    The book is great and a wonderful conclusion to the series. However this VERSION IS ABRIDGED. It was not marked well. I didn't realize until I was already several hours in and I didn't want to rebuy and then re-listen.

    Great version for someone not looking for a 25+hr commitment.

    "Wonderful read"

    Incredibly well told story. Perfect mesh of a macro historical perspective to the micro consequences to the human condition. Brilliant!
