Fiction: Fall of Giants By Ken Follett If you haven’t read “Pillars of the Earth” you may want to start there as an introduction to Follett’s expansive, fascinating worlds. In “Fall of Giants,” the first book in the author’s Century Trilogy, we follow the intertwining lives of several families across Europe, Russia and the U.S. at the brink of World War I. Love, war, death and hardship, this first book sets the stage for a sprawling epic that only Follett can contain.

Cromwell’s role in Anne’s conviction and execution might be unsavory, but Mantel’s masterfully nuanced portrayal of him reveals the doubts and worries that lie behind his efficient persecution.
