I didn't realize I'd end up finishing the book in less than a week but yeah, it's that readable and engrossing and entertaining that I couldn't put it down. So much of the events of WWI have become clearer to me now. (For the longest time, as far as I was concerned, World War I was just a collective term for that war in Europe, and even as I was aware of its impact, it never occurred to me that this was a major turning point in the history of most European countries and the United States, maybe even more than WWII was.)

Pillars of the Earth is still a much better read than Fall of Giants, and contains much more historical context, but Fall of Giants still follows the usual Ken Follett tradition.
