Publisher's Summary

A huge novel that follows five families through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for votes for women.
It is 1911. The Coronation Day of King George V. The Williams, a Welsh coal-mining family, is linked by romance and enmity to the Fitzherberts, aristocratic coal-mine owners. Lady Maud Fitzherbert falls in love with Walter von Ulrich, a spy at the German Embassy in London. Their destiny is entangled with that of an ambitious young aide to U.S. President Woodrow Wilson and to two orphaned Russian brothers, whose plans to emigrate to America fall foul of war, conscription and revolution.
In a plot of unfolding drama and intriguing complexity, FALL OF GIANTS moves seamlessly from Washington to St Petersburg, from the dirt and danger of a coal mine to the glittering chandeliers of a palace, from the corridors of power to the bedrooms of the mighty.

Great story, perfect narrating

I listen to it when driving and walking and I did not want to stop driving and walking. John Lee is super!

Brilliant!

What did you love best about Fall of Giants?

Surprising, even thought we kind of know the destination it give us pure pleasure from the start to the end. And Dan Stevens is more than qualified to lead us through this audio journey. Brilliantly read with ambitious story.

not bad at all

over all, I thought this was a pretty good book. Some of the historical detail may bore some readers (if some of the reviews on amazon are anything to go by) but I found them fascinating and, you'll learn a lot reading this book. all Folletts usual plot devices are here, love, loss betrail and separation. my only sadness about the book is how abridged it is. its nearly 13 hours long but probably only captures a third of the text. this is really apparent at some points where the abridgement seems to be very clunky and charictors jump whole continents (e.g. from Cardiff to New York) with little or no explanation of how they got there... I doubt the master story teller Follett would have made this mistake.

so, to sum up, a good book but suffers for its abridgement and I hope audible will get an unabridged version some day.

Fall of Giants

I was very disappointed that this was abridged. The best bits of the book were left out.
