I have been so behind on blogging it is embarrassing, so bear with me. I finished reading Fall of Giants by Ken Follett a few weeks ago. It took me along time to read it because I am so busy with work and school that my reading time has gone down to 30 minutes in bed before I go to sleep, which usually ends in about 5 minutes and me waking up 2 hours later with the book still in my hands. Also the book is 985 pages long.
This is the third Ken Follett's book that I have read so far and will not be my last. One of my favorite aspect of his books is how he blurs the line between good and evil. Bad people to good things and good people do bad things. It makes the books human, you can relate with the characters and the characters come alive.
This book was based before and during World War I, which I realized I really didn't know that much about that war. Most of the characters in the book are fictional, but all of the events in the book are factual. There are characters on all sides of the war, so you really get a full view of what happened at that time around the world.
I love this book and highly recommend it. Luckily this is the first of a three book series.
