Fall of Giants (The Century Trilogy)
A re-telling of the history of World War I through the perspectives of the members of five different families, from five different countries, from five different walks in life. A magnificent novel that …

This was one of the most annoying books I've read in several decades. The writing was clunky and cliche-ridden. The characters were (mostly) wooden and unbelievable and the dialogue was an embarrassment …

I actually hated this book. I remember at one point becoming completely fed up and throwing the book across the room. I practically always finish the books that I start, but not this one.   …

PIllars of the Earth
Boy, I read Pillars of the Earth a long time ago, 1989, when it was first published in hardback. I like Follett's thriller-mysteries, but I recall reading the jacket and thinking that this isn't …

PIllars of the Earth
This is one of those books that literally has it all: love, lust, hate, death, birth, starvation, redemption, and cathedrals. While the building of cathedrals is a main theme, don't overlook the fully-realized …

I used to work in a bookstore and occasionally I would see these books come through with Oprah's seal of approval, and generally I would just shelve them and forget about them.  I do not take …

I loved this book. It centers around the building of a church in the late middle ages. A noble priest goes to great lengths to get it built. The book also introduces one of the most evil and ubiquitious …

Whiteout: A Novel by Ken Follet
I rated this one closer to a 4 than 3 1/2 stars but not by much. It is hard to discuss it without creating many spoilers except it deals with a group of criminals that kind of "trap" a young man plagued …

The quality of the character development in this book by Ken Follett made me think of Tolstoy.  The first CD is so-so and hard to get into, but by the middle of the 31-disc set I was …

My husband bought "The Pillars of the Earth" for me because we'd been playing the board game, which we really enjoy. It has a very attractive map board, with town and market, priory, woods …

I picked up The Pillars of the Earth at the library a few weeks ago.  It was featured in the "New Books" section, which is odd because it was published in the late 1980s.  It had one of those …

PIllars of the Earth
Ken Follett brings 12th century England to life in this rollicking tale about the making of a cathedral. The story is actually about the people who make it, their lives, hopes, loves, hatreds and struggles. …

I am a big fan of Ken Follett, and admire that he moves in a seemingly effortless manner between genres. However, his best work is found in the "great historical novel", and he has delivered handsomely …
