Ken Follet's Book Fall of Giants

Original post made by Hank Lawrence, Menlo Park: Sharon Heights, on Oct 30, 2010

I am only partially through the book Fall of Giants but I highly recommend reading it. One very hilarious passage occurs in Chapter 9 at the end of Part V where Lady Maude is talking to Earl Fitzherbert about Newspaper Editors with regard to Madame Caillaux's adventure at the French Newspaper Le Figaro.

Sports is usually confined to a younger crowd than those who come here to discuss "adult bad behaviour" and the likes.
I thank you for the recommendation. Ken Follet was a favorite writer at one time, and this sounds different for him.
We just houseguested with Lady Carina and her husband,David, who also recommended the book.
Carina thought some of the characters funny but too tame.
