Fall of Giants (The Century Trilogy)
Fall of Giants (The Century Trilogy)
Price: 1.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent storytelling, 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the second book by Ken Follett that I've read, the first being pillars of the earth, and I have to admit that he certainly knows how to write. Excellent read from beginning to end.
This is the story of an aristocratic family and a very poor mining village which keeps the mine of the aristocrats running and how their lives become entangled. There is a warmth to the characters that make them real, from Ethel the daughter of the poor mining family to the Earl and his family and extended family. Weaved into all this is another set of Russian characters who also play a very important role to the story, not forgetting the Americans. All told it makes you think about the start of the First World War with a much clearer picture.
You will not be disappointed.

But only just. Loads of grammatical and spelling errors which would suggest spellcheck was used without it being proof read. Not a totally gripping story but once it got going it was ok.

Im new to this high end of the market but the use that I've put this too already appears to give the impression that the memory card is good quality. I have a nikon d3200 and needed a high end card and this appears to fir the bill.

As described. Good delivery. Fits well. Looks good on. No idea how well it will perform in the event of the phone being dropped but we live in hope that it will perform.

Good prompt delivery. Looks good on the phone. Colour matches and makes the phone look good. I expect the cover to perform well, i don't know how well it will withstand or protect if its dropped but anything other than a padded shell will probably only perform to same standard as this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant reading, 23 Mar 2013
What a wonderful multi level story, with such fact running through it to cement it's reality. I would have no hesitation in recommending this to other readers looking for a historically fact based story that allows you to wallow in the innocence of times gone by.
First we are introduced to the main character Penny, and then the children Esther & Peter, then Eddie Schaffer and then Mr Mendel, what a powerful character he turned out to be.
It's a wonderful read that you won't be disappointed with.

Bought for daughters trip to Australia. Im not sure if she actually used it. She said she did but Ive not seen pics etc that she is supposed to have it for unless of course she just used it to keep her phone safe while she was in the water, in which case it done the job. Easy to use.

Brilliant, plain and simple and does the job excellently. Previous can openers have been cheap and not lasted long, what false economy. This product easy to use even with stiff joints etc it is easily used.

4.0 out of 5 stars mmmm, 29 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Jury still out on this one. Bought it for daughters backpacking trip to Australia. She used it a few times. There were some pictures that came out with the edge of the lens compartment showing which looked like a black frame around the picture. I did try to explain to daughter about how to use it, but hey how you know how kids know everything already!!!! I do wonder that if she had listened she might have had a better experience with it. It did keep the camera dry therefore it was as described and fit for purpose.
