I recently finished reading “Fall of Giants” by Ken Follett… What an amazing book!
It is the first installment of the trilogy called “The Century”, and I definitely intend to read the following two books!
“Fall of Giants” tells the story of five different families that are brought together through the First World War. Although the story centers around these five families, you also learn about society and the political situation at the time the story takes place, in the different countries involved in the war.
I didn’t know much about WW1 before I read this book, but have learnt plenty, as it includes many historical details.
It took me a good two months to get through the book, as it is about the size of a brick – 850 pages – but I have really enjoyed this reading experience, and would definitely recommend this book!
