Re me Given that I was not yet born during the early twentieth century I took for granted the accuracy of uite a bit of Ken Follett s world view while I was reading his books I knew there were atrocities committed against the working class in the UK and America during the early periods of the books so I assumed much of his research to be correct I have always been very open to the so I assumed much of his research to be correct I have always been very open to the that different political parties owed their necessity to the time and place in which they were neededUnfortunately by the time I had read most of the third book I realized Follett "was an extremist in his socialist political beliefs "an extremist in his socialist political beliefs with regard to American politics I am an Independent and I hate reading anything so far left and so far right when it hate reading anything so far left and so far right when it no basis for reality I would rather see both the warts and the dimples rather than be told a fairy tale of half truths His viewpoint is very singular in his condemnation for all things Republican and nothing but praise for all Democrats even to the extent that he gives Pope John Paul II s great success in Poland to President Carterutterly ridiculous Follett praises by intimating Carter s dealings with the communists was cautious yet Reagan was supposed to take on the Kremlin during the Solidarity movement perfectly exhibits the bias in his writingAs I was reading the book I reflected that all of the Follett books I had ever read prior to the Century Trilogy were period pieces from a time I had not lived however Edge of Eternity covered a place in time I know very well His revisionism of modern times has left me bereft of any pleasure for reading the first two books If I can t trust his completely biased viewpoint of modern history than how can I trust any of his research Unless you want to read a socialist manifesto concealed in the vein of storytelling I would strongly recommend you not purchase any of the books in this series As for me I will not be buying another Follett book It really is sad because I would have loved to find an author who would have me explore my Welsh heritag.

I have read many books about The Great War and thought I knew uite a bit about it However this story opens up other areas such as the Russian picture and enables the reader to get a overall idea of what was happening It is #very immersive and i could not stop reading #immersive and I could not stop reading much that I didn t even realise that I d reached the last page Such disappointment led me straight on to buy part 2This edition is an enhanced edition which I think is ust brilliant Unfortunately I mostly read on my kindle and it is not compatible so I haven "T Used It So Much I Like The Pictures And "used it so much I like the pictures and at the back Part two is not enhanced As a superb historical novel Fall Of Giants deserves 5 stars However particularly in chapters concerning battle scenes it becomes bogged down in detail so much so that I skimmed large swathes of tactical warfare peasantry the arrogant upper class the huge differences in the way each viewed the other are superbly portrayed The class system was perhaps still is to a lesser extent the same in every country portrayed I thought I knew a lot about the period covered however this account gave me a deeper insight into the possible thought processes which determined so many strange sometimes tragic actions on the part of the various governments If I was able to impart the atmosphere depth of characterisation I would perhaps make this review even longer I hope I have written enough to encourage you to read this great book I m a sucker for Follett novels even though they are all pretty much the same It doesn t matter when or where the action is set he Neurology pocketcard Set just lifts the main storyline from one time and drops it into another and it s endlessly predictable and written at GCSE level but it doesn t make it any less enjoyable I find myself blasting through them in 3 or 4 days His obsession with girls losing their virginity is getting a bit tiresome as heust copiespastes the text from one sex scene to the next he felt some resistance then felt something give as she gave a brief cry of pain then moved with his rhythm is getting a bit tire.
