This is going to be a pretty short review of a very long book. I read Fall of giants over the holidays so it took two weeks to finish. I feel fairly sure at any other time I would have finished it in a week or less. It was just that good. This is the first time I've read Ken Follett and I'm very impressed. I'll defiantly be reading more of his books. My only real problem was toward the end some of the character seemed to become more caricatures of themselves. Over all though the the writing and story were great enough so to keep you interested for over eight hundred pages.
