FALL OF GIANTS

Editorial Review - Kirkus - Jane Doe

A massive, cat-squashing, multigenerational and multifamilial saga, the first volume of what Follett (World Without End, 2007, etc.) promises as a trilogy devoted to the awful 20th century.The giants in question, metaphorically, are the great and noble families of old Europe, a generally useless lot with a few notable exceptions. One such worthy, Lord Fitzherbert (try not to think of Bridget Jones ... Read full review

Fascinating story. Gave a new perspective on historical events. Never knew that the Brits were in Siberia after WW I.

Review: Fall of Giants (The Century Trilogy #1)

User Review  - Stephanie - Goodreads

I loved the medieval series so I thought this series would be just as good. I'm not into WWI but was interested in the characters and how they tied together.
