Great to see that my favourite author has been recognised with a CBE. Well done that man and well deserved.

I find your historical novels’ mixture of fiction and real people brilliant. Many times I’ve stopped reading and gone to google to check out facts. Great work from you.

I read the Kingsbridge and Century trilogies. They were some of the best books I have ever read. I love historical fiction. Are you going to do a trilogy that links 'A Column of Fire' with 'Fall of Giants'?

I am 88 years old. An avid reader since childhood. I have enjoyed ALL your novels immensely. If I had to pick a favourite, it would be 'Key to Rebecca', simply because it launched me into a great Follett reading adventure. Thank you.

I bought ‘A Column of Fire’ as soon as it was available but did not start to read it until after Christmas, however, anyone who came to my home had a chance to pet the pages, they feel like silk. Then I began to read it. but only when I ate my breakfast, so it would last. It was wonderful as always, I loved to be back in Kingsbridge.

As a 55 yr old I have read a lot of books and then I stumbled upon ‘Pillars’ and all the books that I have ever read paled into insignificance. I have never felt the need to send an author a message before but I would like to say thank you for what is the best book that I have ever read. I will certainly be seeking out your other novels.
