Closing The Chapter: Edge of Eternity
In what can be described as a refresher course in world history, we come to the end of Edge of Eternity, our February Book of the month read.
The author fits his characters into pivotal moments in the world’s story during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. These characters are present for protests against Segregation, The Watergate Scandal and the fall of the Berlin Wall.
These characters and many others find their lives inextricably entangled as they add their personal stories and insight to the most defining events of the 20th century. From the opulent offices of the most powerful world leaders to the shabby apartments of those trying to begin a new empire, from the elite clubs of the wealthy and highborn to the passionate protests of a country’s most marginalized citizens, this is truly a drama for the ages.
With the Century Trilogy, Follett has guided readers through an entire era of history with a master’s touch. His unique ability to tell fascinating, brilliantly researched stories that captivate readers and keep them turning the pages is unparalleled. In this climactic and concluding saga, Follett brings us into a world we thought we knew, but now will never seem the same again.
Reading any 1,100-page book is a chore, but if you stay with “Edge of Eternity,” Mr. Follett’s characters just might grow on you.
We can only hope that you enjoyed the book as much as we did.
