  1. I have just finished reading Fall of Giants and found it absolutely riveting. Never thought I would be able to enjoy a novel set against War so much. Though I did read War and Peace and had also liked it, but Tolstoy's philosophical monologues were quite hard to read. Whereas in here I found Ken Follett expounding upon War theories in an easily comprehensible conversational style. Easily, my best read on World War I. Has anyone else read it? What's your take on the book?
  2. I love this book! I have just finished reading it - second time around, and it was just as enjoyable as the first time a few years ago. The story is set in 12th century England, and is mainly focused on a builder and his family, friends, and enemies. Tom Builder's ambition is to be the master craftsman in charge of constructing a Cathedral, and basically, the story is centred around the Village of Kingsbridge, where the buiding is taking place. It's got the lot, violence, love, politics and vengence. Oh, and medieval architecture and a hanging or two. Follett has a simple easy going style, and I have found most of his books to be good "page-turners". If you have read his works before, Eye of the Needle etc, and perhaps they weren't to your liking, you may want to give this a whirl, it is most certainly not an "any-old-adventure" type book, and the story is fascinating and compelling. Thumbs up from me!
