The characters in this book unlike characters in his previous books that I really enjoyed are caricatures Follett lets his liberal politics come though with no subtlety all the blacks are good all whites are evil and bad intentioned I m sorry to have wasted my time reading this left wing drivel.Very disappointing given the talented storyteller Follett can be.
Sadly not nearly as well written as the previous books in this trilogy The first third was as we re used to, descriptive and captivating The rest seemed like he was in a hurry to finish, and is rushed and padded with a lot of clumsy sex Very sad, I was so excited for the at installment and was left wanting better.
Bleh I hated this book What a load of liberal revisionist history I can summarize it for you this way Liberals are brilliant, dashing, successful, all knowing, always wise and prescient Conservatives are stumbling, bumbling blockheads, who must visit prostitutes to get any action because who would want a conservative lover Want Jimmy Carter almost ended the cold war with his brilliant moves regarding Poland Reagan gave a silly speech telling Gorbachev to tear down this wall , which apparently h [...]
First 2017 Read, as the last 2 yearsKEN FOLLETT The Century Trilogy.Because who doesn t read Historywon t notice how determinedly it repeat itself 3 3 2017 21 2016 6 2017
Review contains SPOILERS Don t read further if you don t want some plot details spoiled.Are you a self important baby boomer who leans left in your political views Well buddy, are you going to have the biggest rager of a boner reading this book Don t get me wrong, I devoured this book, and it starts off very strong Most of the characters in the book start off likable I realized pretty early on that at this point in the story, nearly all the characters are related by either blood or marriage, des [...]
First off, I cannot review this book without spoilers, so please, please read at your own risk.SPOILERS AHEADI was disappointed by this book Maybe as a standalone version it would have been better received, but as the third of what had been a superb trilogy I was let down.First Why drop so many characters we were invested in the first two books and which in the closing of the second made it look like we should look forward to what happens to them The second books ends with Erik Carla s brother b [...]
very strong first part covering roughly 1961 1963 Berlin wall, fight for Civil Rights, the Cuban missile crisis , but then the novel starts scattering and after a while becomes almost an encyclopedia like recital of what happens as it follows the diverse group of characters until 1989there are strong moments here and there but they read like snippets than like a novel, while the political biases of the author start becoming way too visible and detract from the book there is a ton about Nixon an [...]
so many world events took place during the time period of this book that it felt like the characters were forced into the story rather than the story being built around the characters.
I can t wait to read this book Fall of Giants and Winter of the World were so good I could hardly put them down.
I read an advance copy of the third in the Century Trilogy Follett who is probably best know for his thrillers is also a great writer of historical fiction Pillars of the Earth may be the best piece of historical fiction I ever read Edge of Eternity is not far behind It is the monumental 1100 pages in my copy of a monumental time 1961 to 1989 The book was like reading a movie I mean that in a good way , story flowed, the characters flowed, it just worked Granted lots of literary license to have [...]
It pains me to give a Follett a low rating however, this just wasn t good Stock characters against the political background of the last half of the 20th century just made this story too long And where was England in all of this turmoil Not one single mention of Margaret Thatcher Seemed to be forcing a particular political agenda also As I said about the second book in the trilogy, too broad a canvas to be effective.
After reading well over 3,000 pages of material.you feel totally invested in a story At least this writer does that for me I cared deeply about these characters It s funny.when I read a Follett novelI dream about the characters while I sleep at night, as if they are real people That s how powerful this trilogy was for me And out of the 3 this one I could most relate to, because I was born in 1959,and the things happening in it up to 2008, I saw on the news I lived it, I experienced it.The first [...]
4.5 starsEdge of Eternity is Follett s bookend to his globe trotting Century trilogy that began with Fall of Giants followed by Winter of the World a strikingly immense multi generational saga featuring families from Germany, Russia, Wales, England and America, weaving historical world conflicts of the 20th century.In this final installment, we see the grandchildren of the epic WWI story course through the remnants of WWII, the Cold War, and the civil rights movement of the 1960 s Follett s unde [...]
Thought it was adolescent I have read other books of Follet s and this one read as if someone else wrote it Perhaps it is because I lived through this era, that there was a knowing of the linear plot, but I just don t think it was well written Sorry No recommendations here.
Long, long long and boooooring I would say the first of this trilogy was the beste second was only ok, and this one was not very good I just didn t care about the characters, what happened, etc It was not suspenseful or engaging Sorry Ken Follett, I love you but not this book
Not as good as the first two books And not because I am irrationally offended when someone doesn t praise the all mighty Ronald Reagan With the Viet Nam war, Kennedy s, Hippie movement, rock music, the USSR and so much else that happened post WWII to the present This should have been a great story However it literally felt like this book was written by another author, who basically wrote an encyclopedia that had sex scenes in it to make it interesting For example, I get that this book was about [...]
What a sensational series to begin 2015 reading Follett ties up the Century Trilogy with the best novel yet, Edge of Eternity Tackling the largest historical arc, Follett brings his characters to life at a time when the world saw epic change, continuing storylines from past novels and adding new layers with another generation of characters to push the trilogy ahead Follett continues to follow five intertwined families through the major social, political, and economic turmoil of the 1960s through [...]
WOW Ken Follett continues to produce great novels The third book in the Century Trilogy is bookended by the creation and destruction of the Berlin Wall, symbolizing the rise and fall of communism But the book has so much , covering the civil rights movement, concluding with the election of Barack Obama Follett also integrates the key political figures, assassinations, protests, and strife of the past 50 years But, what really makes the novel are the great characters he has created and their desc [...]
Worth the time to finish just to say I did it, but not even close to the quality of its precursors I am a big fan of Follett s previous work Pillars of the Earth is up there with the best books written in the last few decades Sadly, though it gets off to a good start, Edge of Eternity fizzles fast, becoming repetitive and predictable Characters patronizingly summarize and re summarize their lives like a 6th grade history teacher trying to prep students for a test Connections between real and fic [...]
I have read almost all of Ken Follett s books They are great stories Let me just say that if Ken Follet s new book is anything like his previous books, I believe it will be great I have to admit that I have only read the outline of the story but, from the little I read Follet s new book will be interesting Sorry I if I gave the impression that I had already read the whole story.
Edge of Eternity reads like a Young Adult fiction Plot lines follow the same routine as the last two books All love angles seem forced in awkwardly Very disappointing.
A trilogia do s culo do Ken Follett come ou de forma brilhante com A Queda dos Gigantes Continuou na mesma nota com o Inverno do Mundo E, infelizmente No Limiar da Eternidade cumpriu efectivamente parte do seu t tulo, ficou se no limiar Os dois primeiros livros desta trilogia tiveram do seu lado a vantagem de representarem curtos per odos de tempo que foram dominados por grandes acontecimentos, tais como a Primeira e Segunda Guerra Mundial Neste terceiro volume, o autor tentou, de forma pouco co [...]
Follett knows how to make you turn the pages He s a master story teller But this was a rush job, to the point of being insulting Would a character in the 1970s really say yada, yada For some reason that annoyed me than the repeated paragraph, the ponderous recaps, one dimensional characters and mawkish, clich ridden writing.All the same I had to finish it fool me.
4.5 stars I so anticipated the 3rd in the Century Trilogy and I greedily devoured this as quickly as the first two I was anxious to get back to the continuing saga of these 5 families whose lives intertwine as history unfolds I am not sure I loved this one quite as much, as the time frame of the 1960 s thru the 1980 s were familiar to me as it is my history Things were very familiar and I felt that I missed the learning part of his first two That said, I am amazed at the amount of research that [...]
1.5 en realidad Creo que nunca puse esa puntuaci n antesVan a haber algunos peque os spoilers sin marcar, y los m s grandes van a estar debidamente marcados La pas MUY mal leyendo este libro Lo siento, fans de Follett, vengan de a uno, porque lo pienso masacrar Tengo una fuerte pol tica de no abandonar los libros que compro en f sico si los leo en digital soy de abandonarlos muy seguido y sin culpa , pero es una filosof a que tengo que empezar a replantearme, porque en mi af n de amortizar los g [...]
Ap s quatro anos de in cio da trilogia O S culo, eis que esta chega ao fim com No Limiar da Eternidade, um livro cujas 1022 p ginas se leem t o bem que dif cil abandonar a sua leitura.O S culo retratado nesta trilogia para mim o mais rico em hist ria, abrangendo duas Grandes Guerras e uma Guerra Fria que colocou em numa guerra as duas grandes super pot ncias do mundo atual EUA e URSS.Mais uma vez Follett junta as cinco fam lias iniciais, juntamente com as gera es que lhes sucederam para recriar [...]
Este senhor conquistou me com Os pilares da Terra e penso que ser dif cil a sua suplanta o Talvez um dia Ken Follett me surpreendaAinda assim, esta trilogia fabulosa Talvez este seja o volume menos bom dos tr s, mas leva as 5 por ser o fecho de quase 3000 p ginas da hist ria do nosso s culo XX, que t o brilhantemente foi aqui retratada E n o poderia ter melhor final do que a queda do muro de Berlim Bravo, Ken Follett, uma vez mais
In big multi POV stories you always have that one character who s chapters you can t stand and slog through just to get to the good characters That dude was Dimka Dimka sucked.For me, George Jakes carried the book He was definitely the strongest and most interesting character of the bunch.
3.5 STARSBook Three of Ken Follett s Century Trilogy began as an UNPUTDOWNABLE 5 Star read for me, but soon lowered to a page turning 4 Stars, then an interesting 3 Stars and even took a dive to 2 Stars in a few instances.hence the 3.5 Star rating.EDGE OF ETERNITY covers the tumultuous 1960 s thru 1980 s encompassing the shameful Civil Rights era, the disheartening assassinations of JFK, MLK and RFK, the unbelievable horrors of Vietnam, the tyranny behind the Berlin Wall, the nerve racking times [...]
Und auch der abschlie ende Teil der Jahrhundert Trilogie konnte mich wieder voll und ganz begeistern Diesmal begleiten wir unsere Familien durch die Zeit nach dem 2 Weltkrieg und durch den Kalten Krieg hindurch Es werden wieder so viele Themen angesprochen und geschickt in die Handlungsstr nge der einzelnen Protagonisten verkn pft, dass ich nur den Hut vor Ken Follett und seiner epischen Erz hlung ziehen kann.Die gesamte Trilogie war eines meiner absoluten Jahreshighlights und ist grade auch als [...]
