Grand in scope

Latest Video

First - and perhaps most important - Ken Follett's latest historical novel, "Fall of Giants," is big. At nearly 1,000 pages, it sweeps grandly across continents - from Russia and Germany, England and America; eight families; and more than a decade in time.

Like his 1989 novel, "The Pillars of the Earth," and its 2007 sequel, "World Without End," Follett's latest work is epic in scale, meticulously researched and deftly weaves together historical fact, fictional characters and engrossing storytelling.
