Fall of Giants (The Century Trilogy, #1) by Ken Follett

Its a little disappointing that people are rating this book on Amazon out of protest of its price. Its low rating does not give the book the recognition it deserves. This is my first Ken Follett novel, and I am hooked. Ive read where some people have not been that interested in the subject matter of Fall of Giants and prefer the Middle Ages. Im fascinated with 20th Century history, so this is right down my alley.

This novel covers the years of WWI and the Russian Revolution and follows 5 families. Their stories all connect at some point. While you invest in the characters, the story is plot driven and moves pretty swiftly through the years. There are times that a character may be left for a year before we hear from him again. But you dont feel like youre missing any crucial information.

My favorite portions were before and after the war. There is quite a bit of battlefield sections in the middle. They are well written, but I am more interested in the people than military tactics.

I was surprised at how quickly this book reads. Despite its huge size, you can read it pretty quickly if you have the time to devote to it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this.
