The first two parts of the trilogy were possibly more dramatic due to the scale of the main events in that period, namely, two world wars. However, the third instalment is just as interesting and thrilling to read. It is a period I can relate to as it coincides with my younger days. And therefore brought back many memories to me and thoughts on how I was reacting to the various events breaking at the time. I did find some of the events described, dragged on a bit, the Cuban missile crisis and the Civil Rights campaign, to name a couple, But perhaps this was intentional to attract the American readers. I also felt that the sexual affairs of many characters were overemphasised, I suppose sex and money are the two most important motivators for careerminded people, which most of the characters appear to be. Nevertheless, the book still deserves a top 5 star rating because the author has ideally matched up the fictional characters located in different parts of the world to real historic events. Perhaps one missing element was to have an evil character among the fictional families, they all turned out to be heroic in their own right. I would have liked to have read more details about the Vietnam War. This topic was almost brushed aside in the story, a shame as it would reveal great action and drama. The book as indeed the whole trilogy, is a masterpiece, in my opinion. And I hope the author returns soon with another smash hit, perhaps set against a historical genre, which Ken Follett is so good at bringing into life.

The century trilogy is a brilliant idea, and the first book `Fall of Giants' is a good read, the second (Winter of the World) is also pretty good but when it comes to the third, (Edge of Eternity) it is wearing very thin, with a pretty formulaic approach to the story. Dealing with world events through the experiences of ordinary people is one thing but by the time you get to the third volume one gets the impression of reading the artificially constructed lives of minor but active players in the big geopolitical events of the second half of the 20th century. Descriptions of the sexual interactions between characters becomes quite frankly boring halfway through volume 2, and by the time you get to volume 3 their only value is to enable `speed-reading', i.e. skipping through them to get to the next interesting bit! (one Amazon reviewer complained that the whole trilogy was `smut'). The whole trilogy was a decent `holiday read' but not a patch on the author's `Pillars of the Earth' /'World Without End' mediaeval stories. Whilst it follows a similar formula unfortunately some events (particularly in the third volume) are sufficiently in living memory of potential readers for it not to work as convincingly.Read more ›

I am not going to write a long essay about this trilogy, I never read those I will say that if you like historical accuracy, political intrigue, family drama then this is the set of books for you. This brilliantly written and engaging story follows the fortunes of the main families from the Russian reveloution,the British class system through the WW1, bringing political change in women's rights and workers freedom to WW2 bringing innovation,Nazism and the cold war. We follow the fortunes of the families on 3 continents fighting against communism, women's suffrage,the civil rights and the brink of nuclear destruction. Finally bringing us to the fall of communism and the election of the first African American president of the United States. The author engages the reader with family members,the character's are believable and you want to know what happens to them. The historical content is brilliant and the descriptions of manor battles and political crises have taught me to understand how these historic events came about. I enjoyed every page and would highly recommend you put the kettle on and settle down a good read.

It was a pleasant read, this 3rd book in Follett's trilogy, but not as good as the second, which in turn was not as powerful as the first. This 3rd book contained the descendents of the first book we met, sometimes the grandchildren and great grandchildren, which was very nice for those of us who have followed the entire Century Trilogy through. But the characters, nice as they were, were not as gripping as in the first book - nowhere near, in fact. The fall of the Berlin Wall at the end was very well written, acting as a real high note on which to end, but for most part, this 1000-plus-paged 3rd book was a bit of a let down. It did feel like the author had to fulfill his contract and had run out of steam a little. Follett definitely drew on his considerable skills in writing and vast experience in handling a big cast to pull this book off relatively well, and such a book by a lesser author would have been quite an accomplishment. But having read his other books, this one...well...I doubt it is going to rate as one of his greatest. In the same way, Pillars of the Earth was a powerful first book, but the sequel, World Without End, was much weaker, and a shadow of the first. I suppose for completion's sake, I am glad to have read Edge of Eternity and 'finished' the Trilogy, and certainly it was not exactly hardship to read it - have read far worse! - but it was not the treat i was hoping it would be.
