Description

Free Download Edge of Eternity Ebook. Ken Follett's extraordinary historical epic, the Century Trilogy, reaches its sweeping, passionate conclusion.

In Fall of Giants and Winter of the World, Ken Follett followed the fortunes of five international families—American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh—as they made their way through the twentieth century. Now they come to one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the 1960s through the 1980s, from civil rights, assassinations, mass political movements, and Vietnam to the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution—and rock and roll.

East German teacher Rebecca Hoffmann discovers she’s been spied on by the Stasi for years and commits an impulsive act that will affect her family for the rest of their lives. . . . George Jakes, the child of a mixed-race couple, bypasses a corporate law career to join Robert F. Kennedy's Justice Department and finds himself in the middle of not only the seminal events of the civil rights battle but a much more personal battle of his own. . . . Cameron Dewar, the grandson of a senator, jumps at the chance to do some official and unofficial espionage for a cause he believes in, only to discover that the world is a much more dangerous place than he'd imagined. . . . Dimka Dvorkin, a young aide to Nikita Khrushchev, becomes an agent both for good and for ill as the United States and the Soviet Union race to the brink of nuclear war, while his twin sister, Tanya, carves out a role that will take her from Moscow to Cuba to Prague to Warsaw—and into history.

Look out for Ken's newest book, A Column of Fire, available now.

  • Fun, completely wrongheaded, fictional account of the fall of militant communism

    Follet will be a great spokesman for the non militant form of communism currently gaining steam in the US. The new propagandistic form of media will applaud this revisionist history.
  • VERY DISAPPOINTING!

    After thoroughly enjoying the first two books in this excellent historical novel trilogy (I would highly recommend them), I naturally purchased the third, EDGE OF ETERNITY. It was a mistake. I’m ~130 pages into it, and so far it is mostly about adolescent sexual adventures, sex with JFK, and detailed multi-page accounts of sex & more sex. Frankly, I’m really not so sure that this last book in the series was written by the same author of the first two books. Very disappointing, as I have enjoyed so many of the works of Ken Follett over decades. Don’t waste your money.

    This is book three of the trilogy. Very powerful story. I couldn’t put it down.

    Unlike the Pillars of the Earth trilogy, The Century trilogy was written to a very narrow audience with a complete socialist bias, especially the American narrative. The British storyline was only marginally better. The first book was decently written, but it became an international soap opera thereafter. The only cogent explanation in books 2-3 was the downfall from within of Communism, and even that was selectively written. All American Democrats are good or at least well meaning, and all Republicans were racists and mass murderers. I know there is an ignorant minority on both sides that espouse such black and white views, but I expected better from Follett and was sorely disappointed.

    Just this moment finished the third. Truly a great read. Not sure there is anything that can equal this piece of work.

    Thoroughly researched and beautifully crafted story. Covering majorhistorical events seen through the eyes of believable protagonists kept me up many nights. One quibble: the Iran hostage crisis of 1979 to me represents a major turning point in Middle East-US relations. The scene with the botched assassination attempt had more shock value to the reader, but while horrible, is not on the same level in terms of global impact as the other events in the trilogy.
