If you had the pleasure of reading Follett’s Fall of the Giants, you will enjoy this second installment of The Century Trilogy. This historical fiction novel promises to continue right where the last book left off. USA Today says about Fall of the Giants, “It’s a book that will suck you in, consume you for days or weeks…then let you out the other side both entertained and educated." This is one of the more popular adult reads this season.
