Fall of Giants (Turtleback School & Library)
Fall of Giants (Turtleback School & Library) | Ken Follett
For use in schools and libraries only. Ken Follett's magnificent new historical epic begins, as five interrelated families move through the momentous dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage. A thirteen-year-old Welsh boy enters a man's world in the mining pits....An American law student rejected in love finds a surprising new career in Woodrow Wilson's White House.... A housekeeper for the aristocratic Fitzherberts takes a fateful step above her station, while Lady Maud Fitzherbert herself crosses deep into forbidden territory when she falls in love with a German spy....And two orphaned Russian brothers embark on radically different paths when their plan to emigrate to America falls afoul of war, conscription, and revolution. From the dirt and danger of a coal mine to the glittering chandeliers of a palace, from the corridors of power to the bedrooms of the mighty, Fall of Giants takes us into the inextricably entangled fates of five families--and into a century that we thought we knew, but that now will never seem the same again....

????1/2
Finally ended this one today.
Highly recommended for everyone who likes historical fiction, it's detail is it's USP.Looking forward to other parts.
If you do read it, please keep an ice pack with you for the hand cramps and comments like "how can you read such a long book""I would run away just by looking at the size of this book" etc etc

PS:Comments translated to bad English from Hindi(my native language), kind of loses the essence!

blurb
shammi.dc10

As I finish this book, one has to appreciate the extensive research that must have been done to write this book.I loved the parts of fictional characters with real life people.It also argues correctly that WW I was an unnecessary war, and the part aristocracy played in starting a brutal war in Germany, Russia and even Britain.America comes out good BTW. Read it if you love historical fiction but there is a lot of realism for history buffs as well.

blurb
shammi.dc10

Grigori and Walter are two other characters whose arc i really enjoyed. Walter, a very intelligent and astute man and Grigori, a brave man who defied his masters and contributed in starting a revolution.

blurb
shammi.dc10

counted 8 central characters around which the story revolves and ot is hard to pick a favorite. Everone delights or dismays at some point. The most fascinating would be Ethel, a feminist, a powerful character, sometimes struggling for her love to an unfaithful man but never wavering from her principles and her fight for women's rights in a difficult period of the 1st world war.

Still have 100 pages to go in this 850 page first part of three.

I realized that when you read a book of this volume, if the story is good, the characters start to grow on you. I have always loved historical fiction and I was looking forward to reading this one and so far it has not disappointed.

Also, I was not expecting so many intimate and steamy scenes and I am only 300 hundred pages in.

DebReads4fun Pillars Of The Earth. 2mo
Melissa_J It depends. Are you looking to read one of his works of historical fiction? If so, start with The Pillars of the earth as noted by @DebReads4fun and @Mtroiano If you are more interested in his thrillers/spy novels I‘d go for Eye of the Needle or Lie Down With Lions. 2mo

I finished this one a few days ago and forgot to post.
This was my first Ken Follett and I honestly did not know what to expect. Such a great story, interweaving five families and how they all were involved with WWI. Showed many different perspectives and nationalities. I‘m not usually a fan of war stories, but this one just sucked me in. I will be giving the second book in the series a try!

Crazeedi Great series! 5mo

I started this one last night, as this is exactly the kind of book that makes for good reading in a snowstorm. But I have a question to those who have read Ken Follett before: HOW DO YOU PREVENT HAND CRAMPING?? 😂😂😂
Seriously, any ideas on managing such a tome? I‘m intrigued by the story to keep reading but it‘s hard to hold it...

A pick for sure. A real page turner BUT there are a ton of eyeroll inducing male author moments. He Ken Follett manages to introduce completely unnecessary references to penis size, orgasms boobs, pubes and masturbation when he really doesn't need to. It's a book about WWI for Pete's sake. Dude. Really?

Kaye I‘m glad you said that. I‘ve been tempted to get this several times. I won‘t now since that sorta stuff ruins a book for me. Not interested in reading about nekkid body parts. 🤢 7mo
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @Kaye it's such a shame. It is an incredibly engaging story but I want to smack the author for ruining some good scenes with the voice of a 14 year old with raging hormones. And it's not that I'm a prude, it's that it so obviously did NOT need to be included. Did his editor not say anything? 7mo
amie For some reason I didn't notice this stuff in this book, but definitely noticed it in the next book and it kind of ruined it for me. After reading it I thought, it's like he wrote the book and then gave the manuscript to a 14 year old who put boobs in it wherever they could. 7mo
RestlessFickleBookHoarder @amie exactly! It's the kind of think that makes me wonder who he was writing for. If it's males it's pretty sad that he thinks they can't read a big, long, serious book unless there are boobies. 7mo

Mehso-so

The first in the "Century Trilogy" by Follet. The entire 920 pages takes place during WWI and introduces several families who will be featured in the next two books. I assume. It was a bit too formulaic mini-series-ish for my taste. I probably won't continue with the series. 3/5 star

Aloisi_tribe I read books 1 and 2 and started 3. Book 2 was better than book 1 but the dialogue in book 3 was so bad I had to stop reading. His cathedral trilogy is much better. 8mo
Amiable @Aloisi_tribe I agree completely--I loved "Pillars of the Earth," especially. 8mo

I'm not gonna lie, sometimes his writing makes me roll my eyes (seriously, sometimes it's like a 12 year old boy), but he still gives me a riveting story that makes me want to play hooky from work just so I can read.

Not sure if it counts as a sprint for the #readathon bingo board, but I just set the timer for an hour and got started on this #chunkster and snuggled with the furry guy in the background. The book is off to a great start. Added bonus - it was recommended by my new son-in-law. There's something wonderful about knowing Offspring married a reader.

Oh boy, it‘s so far from over... 🤬 I liked the book, but the “world wars” are not my fave time to read about. I think school killed it for me. Yes, important times for Europe, but there has been so many other important times in the world. Sorry, Follett, I just enjoyed the times of Kingsbridge a lot more!

I have become friendly with the lady at the register at the thrift shop because I go in so often to see what new books they have. This past time I went in she had put 2 books aside for me that she said I just had to read. These books weren‘t just normal novels they were huge chunky chunksters. I don‘t know much about this book except that it‘s the start of a trilogy and that it follows five families through WWI. Anyone read this series??📚

How does Follett do it? These sweeping historical novels filled with interesting, interrelated characters must require a massive amount of research and organization. I really enjoyed the audiobook, deftly read with multiple accents, and plan to continue with the next two books in the series.

Ken Follett loves his #bigbooks, and one of my favourite big books is the first book in his excellent Century Trilogy, Fall of Giants. My copy had 984 pages. I definitely recommend this book and the whole trilogy but it is no small undertaking! John Lee does an excellent job as the narrator of the audiobooks. #recommended #riotgrams
