Overview

This deluxe edition of Edge of Eternity includes three exclusive, behind-the-scenes videos of Ken Follett as he travels through London, Berlin, and the route of the Freedom Ride to research the major events of the twentieth century.


Ken Follett’s Century Trilogy follows the fortunes of five intertwined families—American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh—as they make their way through the twentieth century. It has been called “potent, engrossing” (Publishers Weekly) and “truly epic” (Huffington Post). USA Today said, “You actually feel like you’re there.”

Edge of Eternity, the finale, covers one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the 1960s through the 1980s, encompassing civil rights, assassinations, Vietnam, the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution—and rock and roll.

East German teacher Rebecca Hoffman discovers she’s been spied on by the Stasi for years and commits an impulsive act that will affect her family for generations… George Jakes, himself bi-racial, bypasses corporate law to join Robert F. Kennedy’s Justice Department and finds himself in the middle of not only the seminal events of the civil rights battle, but also a much more personal battle… Cameron Dewar, the grandson of a senator, jumps at the chance to do some espionage for a cause he believes in, only to discover that the world is much more dangerous than he’d imagined… Dimka Dvorkin, a young aide to Khrushchev, becomes an agent for good and for ill as the Soviet Union and the United States race to the brink of nuclear war, while his twin sister, Tania, carves out a role that will take her from Moscow to Cuba to Prague to Warsaw—and into history.

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.

    I have now read two of Ken Follett's trilogy series. In the earl

    I have now read two of Ken Follett's trilogy series. In the earlier books I was always a little skeptical of the history he presented, but because I wasn't sure I decided to just accepted it as a story. This time He wrote of a time that I have lived through. He has made an attempt to rewrite history to fit an ideological preference. Wow, what a shame. The history was perverse and the story was non-sense. For a socialist this book might build a new more comfortable history. As for me, good bye Ken Follett.

    Edge of Eternity by Ken Follet

    This book is written from a far left idology. It is not what one would call leaning towards truth. So if your leanings are toward Socialism you will love this book. Otherwise you might want to stop with book one or two and leave this piece of propoganda to the Socialists.

    My least favorite...

    of the trilogy. The others were monumentally interesting and this one just "blah". Maybe it's because I lived through this era, and the historical perspective was lost on me.

    Dissatisfied customer

    I can't write a review of this book because Barnes and Noble never landed it in my account. The advice they gave was to deregister my ebook then reload. As if...
