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.

Read Ken Follett's Pillars of the Earth series so naturally I was interested in this series. I wasn't disappointed. I love Ken Follett's attention to historical detail and the characters he creates have me hooked from the first. Highly recommend this series!

From the best-selling author of The Intention Experiment and The Field comes a groundbreaking new work---a book that uses the interconnectedness of mind and matter to demonstrate that the key to life is in the relationship between things. We are always connected with others, hardwired at our most elemental level---from the quantum level to the cellular, from personal relationships to business and societal structures.

Karen White is excruciating to listen to. I don't think I will be able to get through the second part of this book. She puts emphasis in all the wrong places - almost as if she didn't understand English and had memorized how to pronounce the text so she could regurgitate it! I read Lynne McTaggart's first two books and I think I will have to buy "The Bond" in print too.
