  1. Fall of Giants is certainly Ken Follett's masterpiece. I've loved all his books but this first one in his series is beyond epic in nature. He takes about a dozen characters and makes them real, something hard to do with just one character.

    For those whom enjoyed Pillars of the Earth and/or World without End (and those, like me, who actually like his other books better), this will blow your mind.

    Though be prepared to cry in frustration when you realize the second book does not come out until 2012 and the third book comes out 2014 (assuming all goes according to plan).
