✏Fall of Giants Book Summary : Ken Follett’s magnificent new historical epic begins as five interrelated families move through the momentous dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women’s suffrage. A thirteen-year-old Welsh boy enters a man’s world in the mining pits. . . . An American law student rejected in love finds a surprising new career in Woodrow Wilson’s White House. . . . A housekeeper for the aristocratic Fitzherberts takes a fateful step above her station, while Lady Maud Fitzherbert herself crosses deep into forbidden territory when she falls in love with a German spy. . . . And two orphaned Russian brothers embark on radically different paths when their plan to emigrate to America falls afoul of war, conscription, and revolution. 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, Fall of Giants takes us into the inextricably entangled fates of five families—and into a century that we thought we knew, but that now will never seem the same again. . . . Look out for Ken's newest book, A Column of Fire, available now.

✏Fall of Giants Book Summary : "Esta es la historia de mis abuelos y de los vuestros, de nuestros padres y de nuestras propias vidas. De alguna forma es la historia de todos nosotros." Ken Follett La historia empieza en 1911, el dĂ­a de la coronaciĂłn del rey Jorge V en la abadĂ­a de Westminster. El destino de los Williams, una familia minera de Gales, estĂĄ unido por el amor y la enemistad al de los Fitzherbert, aristĂłcratas y propietarios de minas de carbĂłn. Lady Maud Fitzherbert se enamorarĂĄ de Walter von Ulrich, un joven espĂ­a en la embajada alemana de Londres. Sus vidas se entrelazarĂĄn con la de un asesor progresista del presidente de Estados Unidos, Woodrow Wilson, y la de dos hermanos rusos a los que la guerra y la revoluciĂłn les ha arrebatado su sueño de buscar fortuna en AmĂ©rica. Tras el Ă©xito de Los pilares de la Tierra y Un mundo sin fin , Ken Follett presenta esta gran novela Ă©pica que narra la historia de cinco familias durante los años turbulentos de la Primera Guerra Mundial, la RevoluciĂłn Rusa y la lucha de hombres y mujeres por sus derechos. About the Author Ken Follett naciĂł en Cardiff (Gales) y cuando tenĂ­a diez años su familia se mudĂł a Londres. Se licenciĂł en filosofĂ­a en la Universidad de Londres y posteriormente se dedicĂł al periodismo. Durante sus años de reportero empezĂł a escribir obras de ficciĂłn. Sin embargo hasta 1978 no se convirtiĂł en escritor de Ă©xito, con la publicaciĂłn de El ojo de la aguja. A partir de entonces, cada novela de Ken Follett se convierte en un Ă©xito internacional. Actualmente vive en una vieja rectorĂ­a de Hertfordshire con su esposa Barbara. Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved. Primera Parte El cielo amenazador 2 Enero de 1914 I El conde Fitzherbert, de veintiocho años de edad, conocido por su familia y amigos como Fitz, era el noveno hombre mĂĄs rico de toda Gran Bretaña. No habĂ­a hecho nada en absoluto para ganar sus cuantiosos ingresos, sino que sencillamente, se habĂ­a limitado a heredar miles de hectĂĄreas de tierra en Gales y en Yorkshire. Las granjas no producĂ­an muchos beneficios, pero debajo de ellas habĂ­a grandes cantidades de carbĂłn, y el abuelo de Fitz se habĂ­a hecho inmensamente rico otorgando las concesiones para le explotaciĂłn del mineral. Estaba claro que era la voluntad de Dios que los Fitzherbert gobernasen a sus semejantes y que viviesen de manera acorde a su condiciĂłn, pero Fitz pensaba que no habĂ­a hecho nada que justificase la fe que Dios habĂ­a depositado en Ă©l. Su padre, el anterior conde, habĂ­a sido un caso distinto. Oficial de la Armada, habĂ­a sido nombrado almirante tras el bombardeo de AlejandrĂ­a en 1882, se habĂ­a convertido en embajador britĂĄnico en San Petersburgo y, finalmente, habĂ­a sido ministro en el gabinete de lord Salisbury. Los conservadores perdieron las elecciones generales de 1906 y el padre de Fitz muriĂł escasas semanas mĂĄs tarde, una muerte precipitada —de eso Fitz estaba seguro— por el hecho de ver a liberales irresponsables como David Lloyd George y Winston Churchill hacerse cargo del gobierno de Su Majestad. Fitz ocupĂł su escaño en la CĂĄmara de los Lores, la cĂĄmara legislativa superior del Parlamento britĂĄnico, como par conservador. Hablaba un francĂ©s muy correcto y se defendĂ­a en ruso, y su sueño era llegar a convertirse algĂșn dĂ­a en jefe del Foreign Office. Por desgracia, los liberales no dejaban de ganar las elecciones continuamente, de modo que aĂșn no habĂ­a tenido ocasiĂłn de ser ministro del gobierno. Su carrera militar habĂ­a sido igual de mediocre. HabĂ­a asistido a la academia de entrenamiento de oficiales del ejercito de Sandhurst, y pasĂł tres años con el regimiento de los Fusileros Galeses para convertirse en capitĂĄn. Tras su matrimonio abandonĂł la carrera militar, pero pasĂł a ser coronel honorĂ­fico de los Territorials de Gales del Sur. Lamentablemente, los coroneles honorĂ­ficos nunca ganaban medallas. Sin embargo, habĂ­a algo de lo que sĂ­ se sentĂ­a orgulloso, pensaba mientras la locomotora de vapor avanzaba por los valles del sur del PaĂ­s de Gales: dos semanas mĂĄs tarde, el rey en persona iba a pasar unos dĂ­as en la casa de campo de Fitz. El rey Jorge V y el padre de Fitz habĂ­an sido compañeros en la Armada en su juventud. Recientemente, el rey habĂ­a expresado su deseo de conocer quĂ© era lo que pensaban sus sĂșbditos mĂĄs jĂłovenes, y Fitz habĂ­a organizado una discreta velada en casa para que Su Majestad conociera a algunos de los mĂĄs brillantes de su generaciĂłn. En aquellos momentos, Fitz y su esposa, Bea, iban de camino a la mansiĂłn para terminar de disponerlo todo para la visita del monarca. Fitz sentĂ­a un gran apego por las tradiciones. No habĂ­a nada en la historia de la humanidad capaz de rivalizar con la estabilidad que proporcionaba el orden establecido, basado en los cuatro estamentos de la sociedad: monarquĂ­a, aristocracia, comerciantes y campesinado. Sin embargo, al mirar por la ventanilla del tren, como en esos precisos momentos, veĂ­a que la sombra de una seria amenaza pendĂ­a sobre las costumbres tradicionales de la sociedad britĂĄnica, una amenaza mayor que cualquiera de las que se hubiesen cernido sobre ella en los cuatrocientos años anteriores. Cubriendo por completo las laderas de los montes, otrora tan verdes, extendiĂ©ndose como una plaga de manchas grisĂĄceas en las hojas de los rododendros, surgĂ­an las casas de los mineros del carbĂłn. En aquellas mugrientas casuchas se hablaba de republicanismo, de ateĂ­smo y de revoluciĂłn. Solo habĂ­a pasado un siglo mĂĄs o menos desde que habĂ­an llevado a la nobleza francesa en carretas hasta la guillotina, y lo mismo ocurrirĂ­a allĂ­ si algunos de aquellos mineros musculosos con la cara tiznada lograban salirse con la suya. Fitz estarĂ­a encantado de renunciar a las ganancias que obtenĂ­a del carbĂłn, se dijo, con tal de que Gran Bretaña volviese a la sencillez de otros tiempos. La familia real era un poderoso bastiĂłn contra la insurrecciĂłn. Sin embargo, ademĂĄs de hacerle sentirse orgulloso, la visita del monarca tambiĂ©n le provocaba cierta inquietud, pues habĂ­a muchas cosas que podĂ­an salir mal. Con la realeza, cualquier descuido podĂ­a ser una señal de negligencia y, por tanto, una falta de respeto. Hasta el Ășltimo detalle del fin de semana serĂ­a comentado posteriormente, por los sirvientes de los visitantes a otros sirvientes y, de estos, a los señores de dichos sirvientes, por lo que todas las damas de la alta sociedad londinense acabarĂ­an sabiendo si, durante su estancia en Ty Gwyn, al rey la habĂ­an dado una almohada demasiado dura, una patata podrida o la botella de champĂĄn equivocada. El Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost de Fitz estaba esperĂĄndolos en la estaciĂłn de ferrocarril de Aberowen. Se sentĂł junto a Bea y el chĂłfer los condujo a lo largo de un kilĂłmetro y medio hasta Ty Gwyn, su casa de campo. Estaba cayendo una llovizna fina pero pertinaz, como era habitual en Gales. «Ty Gwyn» significaba «Casa Blanca» en galĂ©s, pero el nombre habĂ­a acabado resultando un tanto irĂłnico porque, como todo lo demĂĄs en aquel rincĂłn del mundo, el edificio estaba cubierto por una capa de polvo de carbĂłn, y los bloques de piedra que en otros tiempos habĂ­an sido de un blanco inmaculado ofrecĂ­an en esos momentos un color gris oscuro que emborronaba las faldas de las señoras que, en un descuido, rozaban las paredes. Pese a todo, era un edificio manĂ­fico que llenaba a Fitz de orgullo a medida que el vehĂ­culo avanzaba por el camino de entrada a la casa. La mansiĂłn privada mĂĄs grande de todo el PaĂ­s de Gales, Ty Gwyn contaba con doscientas habitaciones. Una vez, de pequeño, Ă©l y su hermana, Maud, contaron las ventanas hasta sumar un total de 523. HabĂ­a sido construida por su abuelo, y en el diseño de las tres plantas se apreciaba una agradable armonĂ­a. Los ventanales de la planta noble eran altos y dejaban entrar una gran cantidad de luz en los majestuosos salones. En la planta superior habĂ­a multitud de habitaciones de invitados, mientras que en la buhardilla se hallaban los innumerables dormitorios del esrvicio que, aun siendo minĂșsculos, eran evidentes por las largas hileras de lucernarios que poblaban los tejados en pendiente.

✏The Evening and the Morning Book Summary : From the bestselling author Ken Follett, The Evening and the Morning is a historical epic that will end where The Pillars of the Earth begins. A TIME OF CONFLICT It is 997 CE, the end of the Dark Ages, and England faces attacks from the Welsh in the west and the Vikings in the east. Life is hard, and those with power wield it harshly, bending justice according to their will – often in conflict with the king. With his grip on the country fragile and with no clear rule of law, chaos and bloodshed reign. THREE LIVES INTERTWINED Into this uncertain world three people come to the fore: a young boatbuilder, who dreams of a better future when a devastating Viking raid shatters the life that he and the woman he loves hoped for; a Norman noblewoman, who follows her beloved husband across the sea to a new land only to find her life there shockingly different; and a capable monk at Shiring Abbey, who dreams of transforming his humble abbey into a centre of learning admired throughout Europe. THE DAWN OF A NEW AGE Now, with England at the dawn of the Middle Ages, these three people will each come into dangerous conflict with a ruthless bishop, who will do anything to increase his wealth and power, in an epic tale of ambition and rivalry, death and birth, and love and hate. Thirty years ago we were introduced to Kingsbridge in The Pillars of the Earth, and now in this masterful prequel international bestseller Ken Follett will take us on a journey into a rich past, which will end where his masterpiece begins.

✏When Giants Fall Book Summary : In When Giants Fall, Panzner makes his case for the turbulent economic changes that will be occurring over the next few years and examines the resulting economic opportunities. According to Panzner, the economic changes will be widespread. Businesses will struggle amid wars, shortages, logistical disruptions, and a breakdown of the established monetary order. Individuals will be forced to rethink livelihoods, lifestyles, living arrangements, and locales. Political structures will be in flux, as local leaders gain influence at the expense of national authorities. For many people, it will be nothing short of a modern Dark Ages, where each day brings fresh anxieties, unfamiliar risks, and a sense of foreboding. However, for those enlightened few who understand what is really going on and what happens next, the chaotic years ahead represent the opportunity of a lifetime - a time when they can realize goals they never thought possible and achieve a level of wealth, security, and inner peace that will leave them head-and-shoulders above everyone else. In this book, Panzner offers cutting-edge insights and strategies that will enable readers to stay well ahead of the game during the uniquely unsettling period ahead.

✏Last of the Giants Book Summary : Today, an ancient world is vanishing right before our eyes: the age of giant animals. Over 40,000 years ago, the earth was ruled by megafauna: mammoths and mastodons, saber-toothed tigers and giant sloths. Of course, those creatures no longer exist, due to the evolution and arrival of the wildly adaptive human species, among other factors. Many more of the world's biggest and baddest creatures - including the black rhino, the dodo, giant tortoises, and the great auk - have vanished since our world became truly global. Last of the Giants chronicles those giant animals and apex predators who have been pushed to extinction in the modern era.

✏In the Land of Giants Book Summary : ‘The imagination has its sanctuaries, too.’ High up in the Hindu Kush, between the ancient pagan Kalash people and the new medievalists of the Taliban, a charismatic young Spaniard, Jordi Magraner, made his home, mastering the local languages and customs before meeting his death in the most mysterious way. In this magisterial book, Gabi Martínez sets off in Jordi’s footsteps to the land of the giants in order to try to solve the riddle of this murder and of Jordi’s life. Jordi Magraner was a brilliant student of the natural world, whose lab was the ravine and the scarp and the tent. His observational investigations led him to places where the legendary barmanu had been sighted, and he began to develop a thesis about the life of the wild man. His passion for pursuit and discovery took him onto ever more perilous terrain in the Pakistani-Afghan borderlands. And, one by one, Jordi turned his back on the Europeans who sought to assist him, preferring instead to entrust his safety to an Afghan youth fleeing the Taliban, and to a wondrous working dog called Fjord. Jordi sought other rewards, and followed a winding, rocky path, down which Gabi Martínez resourcefully tracks him on this enthralling journey of detection and adventure in the Himalayas — where the truth is never as clear and pristine as the majestic mountains and the fast-flowing streams. PRAISE FOR GABI MARTINEZ ‘Enthralling from beginning to end, In the Land of Giants is an inspired telling of an uncommon story.’ The West Australian ‘Martinez ably conjures the scent of juniper, the taste of black, salty tea and the sight of a 40-donkey convoy heading to Panjsh.’ The Spectator
