Ken Follett was 27 when he wrote his first book, Eye of the Needle, an award-winning thriller. After several more successful thrillers, he surprised everyone with his historical novel Pillars of the Earth, about the building of a cathedral in the Middle Ages. Its long-awaited sequel, World Without End, was also an international bestseller. Follett's latest epic, The Century Trilogy, follows five interrelated families navigating the 20th century.

The perfect gift for the Ken Follett fan—a beautifully packaged, limited edition boxed set of his bestselling historical epic, The Century Trilogy, with a signed case
Master storyteller and #1 internationally bestselling author Ken Follett is regularly praised by critics for the deeply researched and brilliantly rendered historical backgrounds that serve as the framework for his novels, as well as his ability to seamlessly blend memorable characters and scenes from his own imagination with real-life characters and events. This is on display nowhere better than The Century Trilogy, a sweeping epic following the fortunes of five intertwined families—American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh—throughout the twentieth century, now in a collection for the very first time.
From the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women’s suffrage in Fall of Giants, to the heroism and honor of World War II in Winter of the World, to Edge of Eternity’s breathtaking conclusion amid the enormous social, political, and economic turmoil of the 1960s through the 1980s, Follett’s characters illuminate the seminal events of the twentieth century that shattered and transformed the lives of individuals and reveal the ways in which seemingly disparate events were in fact intimately related.
This limited edition boxed hardcover set includes a case autographed by Ken Follett and comes complete with a beautifully designed poster displaying all four maps of The Century Trilogy and a timeline of the major events of twentieth century. Each book has been reprinted especially for this boxed set with new beautifully designed family trees. With a display as stunning as the text within, The Century Trilogy Boxed Set is a necessity for any Follett fan.
