Global sales of all Ken Follett’s books stand at a staggering 150 million copies making him one of the world’s best-loved novelists. Magnificent, epic, momentous. He is the master storyteller readers devour.
Follett was only twenty-seven when he wrote the award-winning and international bestseller, Eye of the Needle. After writing more successful thrillers he surprised everyone with the Pillars of the Earth, first published in 1989, the epic of family drama, violent conflict and vaulting ambition set around the building of a great cathedral. It has sold a staggering total of 25 million copies in thirty languages and became an eight-hour mini-series starring Ian McShane, Eddie Redmayne, Hayley Atwell and Matthew Macfadyen.
World Without End was the long-awaited sequel and an international number one bestseller.
His most recent novels are Fall of Giants, Winter of the World and Edge of Eternity – the Century trilogy – with sales of 17 million copies worldwide to date. His latest, Edge of Eternity was an instant international number one bestseller.
Don’t miss this veritable Giant of the Genre.
