'Fall of Giants' - speechless, although totally emotional. Thank you for this feeling.

Dear Ken
I just wanted to let you know that I'm re-reading your books. Don't get me wrong, there are many decent writers out there, but there is nothing quite like immersing oneself in the worlds you have created for us readers. I absolutely adore all of your works and am astounded, always, by the level of research and detail you put into each and every one of your works. Plus, your masterful storytelling just continues to give me hour upon hour of first-rate enjoyment. I commend you and thank you for all have given me over the years.

Thank you once again for all you have given me and the millions of other Follett fans out there. We eagerly await your next masterpiece.

Kind regards,
United Kingdom

I decided to make a list of books I have read. In doing this list, I must say that I have read every one of your books. I switched to reading mostly historical fiction at about 50 yrs old, and your historical trilogies went right along with me. I just wanted to say that as a person of now 70 yrs old, how many hours (days) I have spent enjoying your books. They are number 1 in my estimation. Keep it going!! I think I'll reread some of the earlier novels.

I am a married, forty year old mother of two who likes to escape the real world I live in by reading your wonderful stories. Thank you so much for giving me this freedom.

Greetings to you Ken Follett.

I have read many of your novels, and loved them all. I generally read on the train on the way to work, so when reading a 'Ken Follett' I actually enjoy going to work. My message is .. a big thank you for your brilliance and making life fun again.

Dear Mr. Follett,
I can't say how much your 'Century Trilogy' impressed me. It was a time full of fear, dread and pain for millions of people and you give this time a face with all the different real characters. You take us in a time travel and show us all the important views that we can better understand how complex and complicated the world politics was and as a result is. Your book characters are absolute perfect and I think that everyone can found a person or an happening that they know from her own life. I'm so thankful for all the hours full of incredible facts and stories.

Yours sincerely,

Hello Mr. Follett,
I am a new reader of your work - on chapter two of 'Fall of Giants' which I found yesterday in a used book store. I just went online to order the whole series and found your web site. I'm not on social media and I don't usually subscribe to e-mail lists, but I just wanted to say 'hello and thank you!'

From a brand new fan

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