I received an advance copy from the Penguin First to Read program.

It was interesting to read a fictional account of recent history, but this book was so long! I feel that a lot of scenes could have been cut without losing the narrative thread. ( )

Loved Follett's continuing saga concept; loved the characters; did not like author's imposed views on politics; took way to long to reach the climax; fall of the Berlin Wall was anti-climactic. Book let me down after investing so much into the trilogy. ( )

Entertaining, but probably my least favorite of the trilogy. ( )

En este último tomo de la trilogía «The Century», los protagonistas principales son los nietos de las cinco familias que conocimos por primera vez en La caída de los gigantes. Ken Follett narra las luchas, tragedias y alegrías de sus vidas personales entrelazadas con los acontecimientos principales ocurridos durante estos años. La novela arranca en 1961 y, a través de los dramas personales de los protagonistas, nos ofrece un recorrido histórico de estos años en Europa y Estados Unidos.

A través de los protagonistas de El umbral de la eternidad viviremos el asesinato de John F. Kennedy y de suhermano Bobby, el levantamiento del muro de Berlín, el encarcelamiento de los disidentes soviéticos en los gulags de Siberia, la guerra de Vietnam, el escándalo de Watergate, la invasión de la bahía de Cochinos en Cuba, la invasión de Checoslovaquia por los rusos y mucho más.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

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