Details: Product Description The #1 New York Times bestselling historical epic, the Century Trilogy, now in one deluxe boxed set. Ken Follett follows the fortunes of five international  families—American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh—as they make their way through the 20th century. The boxed set includes all three volumes:  Fall of Giants,  Winter of the World, and  Edge of Eternity. "[Follett] is a commanding storyteller who has taken on an impossibly large task and accomplished it with passion, intelligence, and skill." — The Washington Post   "Follett is masterly in conveying so much drama and historical information so vividly . . . grippingly told." — The New York Times Book Review Look out for Ken's newest book,  A Column of Fire, available now. Review Praise for Fall of Giants    "Follett is masterly in conveying so much drama and historical information so vividly . . . grippingly told." — The New York Times Book Review  " Fall of Giants: Follett at his finest. . . . [a] sweeping epic that will thrill his fans for hours on end."  —The Huffington Post "Follett conjures the winds of war." — The Washington Post  "Tantalizing." — Newsday   "A good read. . . . It’s a book that will suck you in, consume you for days or weeks . . . then let you out the other side both entertained  and educated." — USA Today "Follett entwines fiction and factual events well. . . . This is a dark novel, motivated by an unsparing view of human nature and a clear-eyed scrutiny of an ideal peace. It is not the least of Follett's feats that the reader finishes this near thousand-page book intrigued and wanting more."  —Chicago Sun-Times "Follett once again creates a world at once familiar and fantastic. . . . A guiltless pleasure, the book is impossible to put down. . . . Empires fall. Heroes rise. Love conquers. After going through a war with these characters, you're left hoping that Follett gets moving with the next giant installment." —Time Out "Grand in scope, scale, and story." —The Associated Press   "Suspenseful, tightly constructed, sharply characterized, plot-driven." — The Seattle Times  Praise for Winter of the World "This book is truly epic. . . . The reader will probably wish there were a thousand more pages." —The Huffington Post "Some of the biggest-picture fiction being written today." — The Seattle Times "Follett's real gifts are those of a natural storyteller: swift, cinematic pacing, the ability to juggle multiple narratives coherently, and an eye for the telling detail . . . a consistently compelling portrait of a world in crisis." —The Washington Post "Gripping . . . powerful."  —The New York Times "Masterfully sweeping stories . . . political intrigue, amorous episodes, suspense, and drama. History comes to life."  —The Louisville Courier-Journal  "Follett is so good at plotting a story, even one that takes on such a complex topic as the World War II era. That's what makes  Winter of the World so hard to put down. You want to know what happens next." —The Associated Press "An entertaining historical soap opera." —Kirkus Reviews"The man tells a story so well. . . . Follett can make things glow with some beautifully written episodes. . . . If you read Volume I, you'll have to read Volume II. And once you read Volume II, you'll be committed to reading Volume III. See you in a couple of years." — St. Louis Post-Dispatch "Clips along at a brisk pace. . . . He knows how to keep the pages turning and how to make the reader feel a kinship with the characters' struggles. . . . No matter the ultimate destination, readers can expect to savor the journey—and agonize while waiting for the final book to arrive." —The Christian Science Monitor Praise for Edge of Eternity   "[Follett] is a commanding storyteller who has taken on an impossibly large task and accomplished it with passion, intelligence, and skill. Like its predecessors,  Edge of Eternity is a solid, rigorously researched work of popular fiction. It
