Thank you for sharing the information in ‘Masterclass’. I have read everything you have published and now spend my time dissecting your style (to understand flow, not copy).

Best regards

'The Pillars of the Earth' was the first book of yours I read. Could not put it down, missed sleep and work till I finished. Saw both TV shows, totally emerged into the story.

I am 67 and have written stories all my life, but nothing that was good enough for publishing. Your tips on writing will help me take my writing to a different level. Thank you.

Been enjoying your Century Trilogy and am almost complete with ‘Edge of Eternity’. All three books have been especially interesting to me as I have lived through some of book 2 and all of book 3. Also very interested in history. You have great talent in being able to work fictional characters with real characters and events. Thanks for a lot of entertaining reads.

Dear Mr. Follett:
I just finished book two of your Century trilogy. Though a prolific reader and not so easily amused I have to say that I can’t remember enjoying such a good read ever before. I have also read 'The Man from St. Petersburg' and the 'Key to Rebecca' long ago.

I plan on checking out the third book, 'Edge of Eternity' tomorrow. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have made an old man bristle with excitement once again.

If you have a recommendation based on my books of interest above please let me know. Until then please accept my sincere thanks once again. Happiness is what we make it and you have helped to make mine.

All the best,

I just wanted to thank you for sharing your gift with us (your readers). I have read many of your novels several times and have enjoyed the audio versions on long road trips. I am a prolific reader and I consider you to be one of the greatest writers of our time. I wish you continued success.


I look forward to your letters. Please write to me via the Contact page, and do see earlier letters

If you’ve read several of my books, you might enjoy matching the first line with the title, or guessing the working title
