Summary

Number-One New York Times Best Seller An Amazon Best Book of 2020 A thrilling and addictive new novel - a prequel to The Pillars of the Earth - set in England at the dawn of a new era: the Middle Ages "Just as transporting as [The Pillars of the Earth].... A most welcome addition to the Kingsbridge series." (The Washington Post) It is 997 CE, the end of the Dark Ages. England is facing attacks from the Welsh in the west and the Vikings in the east. Those in power bend justice according to their will, regardless of ordinary people and often in conflict with the king. Without a clear rule of law, chaos reigns. In these turbulent times, three characters find their lives intertwined. A young boatbuilder's life is turned upside down when the only home he's ever known is raided by Vikings, forcing him and his family to move and start their lives anew in a small hamlet where he does not fit in.... A Norman noblewoman marries for love, following her husband across the sea to a new land, but the customs of her husband's homeland are shockingly different, and as she begins to realize that everyone around her is engaged in a constant, brutal battle for power, it becomes clear that a single misstep could be catastrophic.... A monk dreams of transforming his humble abbey into a center of learning that will be admired throughout Europe. And each in turn comes into dangerous conflict with a clever and ruthless bishop who will do anything to increase his wealth and power. Thirty years ago, Ken Follett published his most popular novel, The Pillars of the Earth. Now, Follett's masterful new prequel The Evening and the Morning takes us on an epic journey into a historical past rich with ambition and rivalry, death and birth, love and hate, that will end where The Pillars of the Earth begins.

Summary

Number-one New York Times best-seller. “Absorbing...impossible to resist.” (The Washington Post) As Europe erupts, can one young spy protect his queen? Number-one New York Times best-selling author Ken Follett takes us deep into the treacherous world of powerful monarchs, intrigue, murder, and treason with his magnificent new epic, A Column of Fire.  A thrilling listen that makes the perfect gift for the holidays.  In 1558, the ancient stones of Kingsbridge Cathedral look down on a city torn apart by religious conflict. As power in England shifts precariously between Catholics and Protestants, royalty and commoners clash, testing friendship, loyalty, and love.  Ned Willard wants nothing more than to marry Margery Fitzgerald. But when the lovers find themselves on opposing sides of the religious conflict dividing the country, Ned goes to work for Princess Elizabeth. When she becomes queen, all Europe turns against England. The shrewd, determined young monarch sets up the country's first secret service to give her early warning of assassination plots, rebellions, and invasion plans. Over a turbulent half century, the love between Ned and Margery seems doomed as extremism sparks violence from Edinburgh to Geneva. Elizabeth clings to her throne and her principles, protected by a small, dedicated group of resourceful spies and courageous secret agents.  The real enemies, then as now, are not the rival religions. The true battle pitches those who believe in tolerance and compromise against the tyrants who would impose their ideas on everyone else - no matter what the cost.  Set during one of the most turbulent and revolutionary times in history, A Column of Fire is one of Follett's most exciting and ambitious works yet. It will delight longtime fans of the Kingsbridge series and is the perfect introduction for listeners new to Ken Follett.

World Without End

Summary

In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, a sweeping epic novel set in 12th-century England that centered on the building of a cathedral and the men, women, and children whose lives it changed forever. Critics were overwhelmed, and readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel.  At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End takes place in the same town of Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building the exquisite Gothic cathedral that was at the heart of The Pillars of the Earth. The cathedral and the priory are again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.  Three years in the writing, World Without End once again shows that Ken Follett is a masterful author writing at the top of his craft.

Fall of Giants

288 ratings

Summary

Fall of Giants is Ken Follett's magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families—American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh—as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

Thirteen-year-old Billy Williams enters a man's world in the Welsh mining pits…. Gus Dewar, an American law student rejected in love, finds a surprising new career in Woodrow Wilson's White House…. Two orphaned Russian brothers, Grigori and Lev Peshkov, embark on radically different paths half a world apart when their plan to emigrate to America falls afoul of war, conscription, and revolution…. Billy's sister, Ethel, a housekeeper for the aristocratic Fitzherberts, takes a fateful step above her station, while Lady Maud Fitzherbert herself crosses deep into forbidden territory when she falls in love with Walter von Ulrich, a spy at the German embassy in London….

These characters and many others find their lives inextricably entangled as, in a saga of unfolding drama and intriguing complexity, Fall of Giants moves seamlessly from Washington to St. Petersburg, from the dirt and danger of a coal mine to the glittering chandeliers of a palace, from the corridors of power to the bedrooms of the mighty. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion. It is destined to be a new classic.

In future volumes of The Century Trilogy, subsequent generations of the same families will travel through the great events of the rest of the 20th century, changing themselves—and the century itself. With passion and the hand of a master, Follett brings us into a world we thought we knew, but now will never seem the same again.

Winter of the World

Summary

Ken Follett here follows up his number-one New York Times best-seller Fall of Giants with a brilliant, pause-resistant epic about the heroism and honor of World War II and the dawn of the atomic age. Fall of Giants, the first novel in his extraordinary new historical epic, The Century Trilogy, was an international sensation, acclaimed as "sweeping and fascinating, a book that will consume you for days or weeks" (USA Today) and "grippingly told and readable to the end" (The New York Times Book Review). "If the next two volumes are as lively and entertaining as Fall of Giants," said The Washington Post, "they should be well worth waiting for." Winter of the World picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, Welsh - enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs. Carla von Ulrich, born of German and English parents, finds her life engulfed by the Nazi tide until she commits a deed of great courage and heartbreak.... American brothers Woody and Chuck Dewar, each with a secret, take separate paths to momentous events, one in Washington, the other in the bloody jungles of the Pacific.... English student Lloyd Williams discovers in the crucible of the Spanish Civil War that he must fight Communism just as hard as Fascism.... Daisy Peshkov, a driven American social climber, cares only for popularity and the fast set, until the war transforms her life, not just once but twice, while her cousin Volodya carves out a position in Soviet intelligence that will affect not only this war - but the war to come. These characters and many others find their lives inextricably entangled as their experiences illuminate the cataclysms that marked the century. From the drawing rooms of the rich to the blood and smoke of battle, their lives intertwine, propelling the reader into dramas of ever-increasing complexity. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion. With passion and the hand of a master, he brings us into a world we thought we knew, but now will never seem the same again.

Summary

Edge of Eternity is the sweeping, passionate conclusion to Ken Follett's extraordinary historical epic, The Century Trilogy. Throughout these books, Follett has followed the fortunes of five intertwined families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they make their way through the twentieth century. Now they come to one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the enormous social, political, and economic turmoil of the 1960s through the 1980s, from civil rights, assassinations, mass political movements and Vietnam to the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution - and rock and roll. East German teacher Rebecca Hoffman discovers she's been spied on by the Stasi for years and commits an impulsive act that will affect her family for the rest of their lives. George Jakes, the child of a mixed-race couple, bypasses a corporate law career to join Robert F. Kennedy's Justice Department, and finds himself in the middle not only of the seminal events of the civil rights battle, but a much more personal battle of his own. Cameron Dewar, the grandson of a senator, jumps at the chance to do some official and unofficial espionage for a cause he believes in, only to discover that the world is a much more dangerous place than he'd imagined. Dimka Dvorkin, a young aide to Nikita Khrushchev, becomes a prime agent both for good and for ill as the United States and the Soviet Union race to the brink of nuclear war, while his twin sister, Tania, carves out a role that will take her from Moscow to Cuba to Prague to Warsaw - and into history. As always with Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion. With the hand of a master, he brings us into a world we thought we knew but now will never seem the same again.

War and Peace

90 ratings

Summary

Often called the greatest novel ever written, War and Peace is at once an epic of the Napoleonic wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Tolstoy's genius is clearly seen in the multitude of characters in this massive chronicle, all of them fully realized and equally memorable. Out of this complex narrative emerges a profound examination of the individual's place in the historical process, one that makes it clear why Thomas Mann praised Tolstoy for his Homeric powers and placed War and Peace in the same category as The Iliad.  War and Peace was translated by Constance Garnett.

Summary

Isolated from society in a tenement basement in St. Petersburg, a malicious former civil servant vents his resentments. In the rambling notes that follow, we are exposed to the inner turmoil of the Underground Man, who represents the voice of his generation. An emotional, paranoid knot of contradictions, the spiteful narrator is also desperate to join a society he loathes, if only to prove his superiority to it. Exploring themes of free will versus determinism, Dostoyevsky's existential exploration was written to challenge increasingly popular Western egoist philosophies. In the Underground Man, he found the embodiment of the antihero, whose behavior - like all human behavior - defies rationalization. AmazonClassics brings you timeless works from the masters of storytelling. Ideal for anyone who wants to read a great work for the first time or rediscover an old favorite, these new editions open the door to literature's most unforgettable characters and beloved worlds. Revised edition: Previously published as Notes from the Underground, this edition of Notes from the Underground (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

When Jeannie's research assistant, Lisa, is raped, Steve Logan, a young law student who is one of Jeannie's research subjects, is identified in a police lineup as Lisa's attacker. Logan's genetic tests reveal no violent behavior patterns. Then Jeannie stumbles upon the beginnings of a stunning revelation. Logan is unaware of the existence of a criminal twin brother in jail.

Summary

Like no other suspense author in his genre, Follett reinvents the thriller with each new storyline. But nothing matches the intricate, knife-edge drama of Whiteout. A missing canister of a deadly virus. A lab technician bleeding from the eyes. Toni Gallo, the security director of a Scottish medical research firm, knows she has problems, but she has no idea of the nightmare to come. As a Christmas Eve blizzard whips out of the north, several people converge on a remote family house. Stanley Oxenford, the research company's director, has everything riding on the drug he is developing to fight the virus, but he isn't the only one: his grown children, who have come to spend Christmas, have their eyes on the money it will bring; Toni Gallo, forced to resign from the police department in disgrace, is betting her career on keeping the drug safe; a local television reporter, determined to move up, has sniffed the story, even if he has to bend the facts to tell it; and a violent trio of thugs is on its way to steal it for a client already waiting, though what the client really has in mind is something that will shock them all. As the storm worsens, the emotional sparks, jealousies, distrust, sexual attraction, and rivalries, crackle; desperate secrets are revealed; hidden traitors and unexpected heroes emerge. Filled with startling twists at every turn, Whiteout rockets Follett to a class by himself.

Summary

Ken Follett and John Lee, the author and narrator of Pillars of the Earth and World Without End, are back together again for Fall of Giants, the first in The Century Trilogy. They recently chatted with Audible editor Diana Dapito about the new epic book, and what it was like to write and record it. Fall of Giants is Ken Follett's magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families—American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh—as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage. Thirteen-year-old Billy Williams enters a man's world in the Welsh mining pits…. Gus Dewar, an American law student rejected in love, finds a surprising new career in Woodrow Wilson's White House…. Two orphaned Russian brothers, Grigori and Lev Peshkov, embark on radically different paths half a world apart when their plan to emigrate to America falls afoul of war, conscription, and revolution…. Billy's sister, Ethel, a housekeeper for the aristocratic Fitzherberts, takes a fateful step above her station, while Lady Maud Fitzherbert herself crosses deep into forbidden territory when she falls in love with Walter von Ulrich, a spy at the German embassy in London…. These characters and many others find their lives inextricably entangled as, in a saga of unfolding drama and intriguing complexity, Fall of Giants moves seamlessly from Washington to St. Petersburg, from the dirt and danger of a coal mine to the glittering chandeliers of a palace, from the corridors of power to the bedrooms of the mighty. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion. It is destined to be a new classic.

Summary

Number-one New York Times best-seller.  “Absorbing...impossible to resist.” (The Washington Post) As Europe erupts, can one young spy protect his queen? Number-one New York Times best-selling author Ken Follett takes us deep into the treacherous world of powerful monarchs, intrigue, murder, and treason with his magnificent new epic, A Column of Fire.  A thrilling listen that makes the perfect gift for the holidays.  In 1558, the ancient stones of Kingsbridge Cathedral look down on a city torn apart by religious conflict. As power in England shifts precariously between Catholics and Protestants, high principles clash bloodily with friendship, loyalty, and love.  Ned Willard wants nothing more than to marry Margery Fitzgerald. But when the lovers find themselves on opposing sides of the religious conflict dividing the country, Ned goes to work for Princess Elizabeth. When she becomes queen, all Europe turns against England. The shrewd, determined young monarch sets up the country's first secret service to give her early warning of assassination plots, rebellions, and invasion plans. Over a turbulent half century, the love between Ned and Margery seems doomed as extremism sparks violence from Edinburgh to Geneva. Elizabeth clings precariously to her throne and her principles, protected by a small, dedicated group of resourceful spies and courageous secret agents.  The real enemies, then as now, are not the rival religions. The true battle pitches those who believe in tolerance and compromise against the tyrants who would impose their ideas on everyone else - no matter what the cost.  Set during one of the most turbulent and revolutionary times in history, A Column of Fire is one of Follett's most exciting and ambitious works yet. It will delight longtime fans of the Kingsbridge series and is the perfect introduction for listeners new to Ken Follett.

Summary

La saga de Los pilares de la Tierra y Un mundo sin fin, que ha cautivado a millones de lectores, prosigue ahora con una magistral nueva historia. Una columna de fuego arranca cuando el joven Ned Willard regresa a su hogar en Kingsbridge por Navidad. Corre el año 1558, un año que trastocará la vida de Ned y que cambiará Europa para siempre. Las antiguas piedras de la catedral de Kingsbridge contemplan una ciudad dividida por el odio religioso. Los principios elevados chocan con la amistad, la lealtad y el amor, y provocan derramamientos de sangre. Ned se encuentra de pronto en el bando contrario al de la muchacha con quien anhela casarse, Margery Fitzgerald. Cuando Isabel I llega al trono, toda Europa se vuelve en contra de Inglaterra. La joven monarca, astuta y decidida, organiza el primer servicio secreto del país para estar avisada ante cualquier indicio de intrigas homicidas, levantamientos o planes de invasión. En París, a la espera, se encuentra la seductora y obstinada María Estuardo, reina de los escoceses, en el seno de una familia francesa con una ambición descomunal. Proclamada legítima soberana de Inglaterra, María cuenta con sus propios partidarios, que conspiran para deshacerse de Isabel. Entretanto, Ned Willard busca a Jean Langlais, un personaje escurridizo y enigmático, sin saber que tras ese nombre falso se esconde un compañero de clase de su infancia, alguien que lo conoce demasiado bien. A lo largo de medio siglo turbulento, el amor entre Ned y Margery parece condenado al fracaso mientras el extremismo hace estallar la violencia desde Edimburgo hasta Ginebra. Isabel se aferra precariamente a su trono y a sus principios, protegida por un pequeño y entregado grupo de espías hábiles y agentes secretos valerosos. Los auténticos enemigos, tanto entonces como ahora, no son las religiones rivales. La verdadera batalla es la que enfrenta a quienes creen en la tolerancia y el acuerdo contra tiranos dispuestos a imponer sus ideas a todo el mundo... y a cualquier precio.

Summary

In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, a sweeping epic novel set in 12th-century England that centered on the building of a cathedral and the men, women, and children whose lives it changed forever. Critics were overwhelmed, and readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel.  At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End takes place in the same town of Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building the exquisite Gothic cathedral that was at the heart of The Pillars of the Earth. The cathedral and the priory are again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge. Three years in the writing, World Without End once again shows that Ken Follett is a masterful author writing at the top of his craft.  Please note: This is an abridged edition. An unabridged version is also available.

Summary

El hombre de San Petersburgo es una de las novelas más apasionantes del célebre autor de Los pilares de la Tierra. En 1914 el mundo estaba en vísperas de la Gran Guerra. Tanto Francia e Inglaterra como los imperios centrales trataban de conseguir el apoyo de Rusia, que podía decidir el desenlace de la futura contienda. En esos instantes cruciales de la historia, un aristócrata inglés, lord Walden, y un joven y prometedor político llamado Winston Churchill esperaban la llegada del príncipe Orlov, enviado del zar en misión secreta para entablar conversaciones y establecer pactos con la monarquía británica. Pero el príncipe no fue el único en llegar a Londres desde las frías tierras al este de Europa: un enigmático personaje procedente de Siberia le seguía los pasos...

Summary

Ein Epos um Gut und Böse, Liebe und Hass - die Vorgeschichte zu Ken Folletts Weltbestseller Die Säulen der Erde. England im Jahr 997. Im Morgengrauen wartet der junge Bootsbauer Edgar auf seine Geliebte. Deshalb ist er der Erste, der die Gefahr am Horizont entdeckt: Drachenboote. Jeder weiß: Die Wikinger bringen Tod und Verderben über Land und Leute. Edgar versucht alles, um die Bürger von Combe zu warnen. Doch er kommt zu spät. Die Stadt wird beinahe völlig zerstört. Viele Menschen sterben, auch Edgars Familie bleibt nicht verschont. Die Werft der Bootsbauer brennt nieder. Edgar bleibt nur ein Ausweg: ein verlassener Bauernhof in einem Weiler fern der Küste. Während Edgar ums Überleben kämpft, streiten andere um Reichtum und Macht in England. Unter ihnen: der gleichermaßen ehrgeizige wie skrupellose Bischof Wynstan, der idealistische Mönch Alfred und Ragna, die Tochter eines normannischen Grafen... Edgar, Ragna, Wynstan, Alfred - ihre Schicksale sind untrennbar miteinander und mit ihrer Zeit verbunden. Ihr Land, das England der Angelsachsen, ist eine Gesellschaft voller Gewalt. Eine Gesellschaft, in der selbst der König es schwer hat, Recht und Gerechtigkeit durchzusetzen. Gemeinsam mit Edgar, Ragna, Wynstan und Alfred erleben wir den Übergang von dunklen Zeiten ins englische Mittelalter - und den Aufstieg eines unbedeutenden Weilers zum Ort Kingsbridge, den wir seit Die Säulen der Erde kennen und lieben. >> Diese ungekürzte Hörbuch-Fassung genießt du digital exklusiv nur bei Audible.

Summary

Una acción trepidante, una misión de alto riesgo protagonizada por seis valientes mujeres como agentes encubiertos durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. El día D se acerca. Todavía no se sabe dónde ni cuándo, pero los alemanes están convencidos de que será pronto. Felicity Clariet, Flick, es una de las agentes más valiosas de la unidad encargada de las operaciones de sabotaje que opera en el norte de Francia. A Flick le consta que el éxito del desembarco aliado depende de que las líneas de comunicación con Berlín no funcionen. Y es en Sainte-Cécile, cerca de Reims, donde se encuentra el mayor centro de comunicaciones de la Francia ocupada, alojado en un antiguo castillo del siglo XVII. En estos momentos ese siniestro castillo constituye el objetivo de mayor importancia estratégica. Cuando Flick intenta un asalto directo, la operación fracasa estrepitosamente. Su grupo resulta destruido, sus superiores empiezan a dudar de ella. Sólo le resta una última oportunidad para cumplir la misión. El nuevo plan requiere un grupo exclusivamente femenino y no profesional, que debe ser reclutado y entrenado en cuestión de días. Deben intentar infiltrarse en el castillo a la vista de los nazis, aunque hay muchas cosas que Flick desconoce, secretos en las filas de los alemanes, entre los miembros de su equipo, secretos que guardan las personas en quienes ella más confía.

"L'image de Notre-Dame en flammes m'a stupéfié et chaviré au plus profond de moi-même. Un bien inestimable mourait sous nos yeux. C'était aussi effarant que si le sol s'était mis à trembler sous nos pieds." Ken Follett Dans ce court récit, écrit sur le vif au printemps 2019, Ken Follett raconte l'émotion qui l'a étreint lorsqu'il a appris le drame qui frappait Notre-Dame de Paris. Il revient sur l'histoire de la cathédrale, de sa construction au rôle qu'elle a joué dans le destin de la nation française. Il évoque aussi l'influence qu'elle a exercée sur l'écriture des Piliers de la Terre, certainement le plus populaire de ses romans. Un hommage vibrant à ce monument français porté par la voix grave de Patrick Descamps, lecteur du premier tome des Piliers de la Terre.

Summary

Nach "Die Säulen der Erde" und "Die Tore der Welt" der neue große historische Kingsbridge-Roman des internationalen Bestsellerautors Ken Follett. Noch immer wacht die altehrwürdige Kathedrale von Kingsbridge über die Stadt. Doch die ist im Widerstreit zwischen Katholiken und Protestanten zutiefst gespalten. Freundschaft, Loyalität, Liebe... nichts scheint mehr von Bedeutung zu sein. Die wahren Feinde sind dabei nicht die rivalisierenden Konfessionen. Der eigentliche Kampf wird zwischen denen ausgefochten, die an Toleranz und Verständigung glauben, und den Tyrannen, die ihre Ideen den anderen aufzwingen wollen - koste es, was es wolle. Ned Willard wünscht sich nichts sehnlicher, als Margery Fitzgerald zu heiraten. Doch der Konflikt entzweit auch sie, und Will verlässt Kingsbridge, um für die protestantische Prinzessin Elizabeth Tudor zu arbeiten. Als diese wenig später Königin wird, wendet sich ganz Europa gegen England. Um in dieser heiklen Situation früh vor Mordkomplotten, Aufständen und Angriffen der konkurrierenden Mächte gewarnt zu sein, baut die scharfsinnige Monarchin mit Neds Hilfe den ersten Geheimdienst des Landes auf. Die kleine Gruppe geschickter Spione und mutiger Geheimagenten ermöglicht es Elizabeth I. in den nächsten fünfzig Jahren, an ihrem Thron und ihren Prinzipien festzuhalten. Die Liebe zwischen Ned und Margery scheint jedoch verloren zu sein, denn von Edinburgh bis Genf steht ganz Europa in Flammen.

Summary

È il 1327. Il giorno di Ognissanti, quattro bambini si allontanano di nascosto dal priorato di Kingsbridge e nella foresta assistono per caso all'omicidio di due uomini. Da allora le vite di questi ragazzi - un piccolo genio, un bulletto, una ladruncola e una ragazzina dalle grandi ambizioni - saranno indissolubilmente legate tra loro e, una volta adulti, conosceranno amore, avidità, ambizione e vendetta.  Vivranno momenti di prosperità e carestia, malattia e guerra. Dovranno fronteggiare la più terribile epidemia di tutti i tempi: la peste. Uno di loro viaggerà per inseguire un amore impossibile e un'altra sfiderà il potere della Chiesa. Ma su ciascuno resterà l'ombra dell'inspiegabile omicidio di cui sono stati testimoni in quel fatidico giorno della loro infanzia. Dopo "I pilastri della terra", Ken Follett ambienta "Mondo senza fine" due secoli dopo la costruzione della cattedrale di Kingsbridge, sullo sfondo di un lento ma inesorabile mutamento che rivoluzionerà le arti e le scienze. I secoli bui sono alle spalle e si cominciano a vedere i primi bagliori di una nuova epoca. >> Questo audiobook in edizione integrale vi è offerto in esclusiva per Audible ed è disponibile solamente in formato audio digitale.

Summary

Gennaio 1558, Kingsbridge. Quando il giovane Ned Willard fa ritorno a casa, si rende conto che il suo mondo sta per cambiare radicalmente. Solo la vecchia cattedrale sopravvive immutata, testimone di una città lacerata dal conflitto religioso. Tutti i principi di lealtà, amicizia e amore verranno sovvertiti. Figlio di un ricco mercante protestante, Ned vorrebbe sposare Margery Fitzgerald, figlia del sindaco cattolico della città, ma il loro amore non basta a superare le barriere degli opposti schieramenti religiosi. Costretto a lasciare Kingsbridge, Ned viene ingaggiato da sir William Cecil, il consigliere di Elisabetta Tudor, futura regina di Inghilterra. Dopo la sua incoronazione, la giovane e determinata Elisabetta I vede tutta l'Europa cattolica rivoltarsi contro di lei, prima tra tutti Maria Stuarda, regina di Scozia. Decide per questo di creare una rete di spionaggio per proteggersi dai numerosi attacchi dei nemici decisi a eliminarla e contrastare i tentativi di ribellione e invasione del suo regno. Il giovane Ned diventa così uno degli uomini chiave del primo servizio segreto britannico della storia. Per quasi mezzo secolo il suo amore per Margery sembra condannato, mentre gli estremisti religiosi seminano violenza ovunque. In gioco, allora come oggi, non sono certo le diverse convinzioni religiose, ma gli interessi dei tiranni che vogliono imporre a qualunque costo il loro potere su tutti coloro che credono invece nella tolleranza e nel compromesso. Dopo il successo straordinario de "I pilastri della terra" e "Mondo senza fine", la saga di Kingsbridge che ha appassionato milioni di lettori nel mondo continua con questo magnifico romanzo di spionaggio cinquecentesco, in cui Ken Follett racconta con sapiente maestria la grande Storia attraverso gli intrighi, gli amori e le vendette di decine di personaggi indimenticabili, passando dall'Inghilterra e la Scozia alla Francia, Spagna e Paesi Bassi. Ambientato in uno dei periodi più turbolenti e rivoluzionari di tutti i tempi, "La colonna di fuoco" è un romanzo epico sulla libertà, con un forte richiamo all'attualità di oggi. >> Questo audiobook in edizione integrale vi è offerto in esclusiva per Audible ed è disponibile solamente in formato audio digitale.

Berlin, 1961. Rebecca Hoffmann erfährt durch Zufall, dass ihr Mann bei der Stasi arbeitet, und damit bricht ihre ganze Welt zusammen.

Und sie bleiben nicht alleine... Boston, 1961. George Jake und Verena Marquand, zwei junge Schwarze, erfahren am eigenen Leib, was Rassendiskriminierung bedeutet - und wie falsch angebliche Freunde sein können. Wem kann man in einer von Misstrauen und Vorurteilen beherrschten Gesellschaft trauen, wem nicht? Und kann der Baptistenpastor Martin Luther King tatsächlich Hoffnung bringen? Ken Follett spannt mit seiner spannenden Familiensaga gekonnt einen Bogen zwischen den großen Freiheitsbewegungen in den USA, in Russland und vor allem in Deutschland, die schließlich 1989 im FALL DER MAUER gipfeln.

I pilastri della terra

Summary

Mistery, storia d'amore, grande rievocazione storica: in quella che è un'opera tra le sue più ambiziose e acclamate, Ken Follett ci trasporta nell'Inghilterra medievale al tempo della costruzione di una cattedrale. Intreccio, azione e passioni si sviluppano così sullo sfondo di un'era ricca di intrighi e cospirazioni, pericoli e minacce, guerre civili, carestie, conflitti religiosi e lotte politiche. Con la stessa, infallibile suspense che caratterizza i suoi thriller, Follett ricrea un'epoca scomparsa e affascinante. Foreste, castelli e monasteri sono l'avvolgente paesaggio, mosso dai ritmi della vita quotidiana e dalla pressione di eventi storici e naturali, entro il quale per circa quarant'anni si confrontano e si scontrano le segrete aspirazioni e i sentimenti laceranti dei protagonisti - monaci, mercanti, artigiani, nobili, fanciulle misteriose -, vittime o pedine di avvenimenti che rimettono continuamente in discussione la costruzione della grande cattedrale. Un'appassionante storia di ambizione e tradimento, coraggio e dedizione, amore e vendetta, in cui si rivela tutta la sapienza narrativa di uno dei più amati scrittori contemporanei. >> Questo audiobook in edizione integrale vi è offerto in esclusiva per Audible ed è disponibile solamente in formato audio digitale.

It's June 1941, and the low point of the war. England throws wave after wave of RAF bombers across the Channel, but somehow the Luftwaffe is able to shoot them down at will. The skies, indeed, the war itself seem to belong to Hitler. On a Danish island across the North Sea, Harald Olufsen stumbles upon a secret German installation. With England preparing its largest aerial assault, what Harald has discovered may turn the course of the war, but the race to convey the information could have terrible consequences for everyone close to him. For his older brother, Arne, a pilot in the Danish air force, and for Arne's fiancee, Hermia, an intelligence analyst desperate to resurrect the foundering Danish resistance. And most of all, for Harald himself. Filled with knife-edge suspense and rich, tantalizing characters, this is Ken Follett writing at the top of his form, unforgettable storytelling from an unforgettable writer.

Il prequel de I pilastri della Terra. 17 giugno 997. Non è ancora l'alba quando a Combe, sulla costa sudoccidentale dell'Inghilterra, il giovane costruttore di barche Edgar si prepara con trepidazione a fuggire di nascosto con la donna che ama. Ma i suoi piani vengono spazzati via in un attimo da una feroce incursione dei vichinghi, che mettono a ferro e fuoco la sua cittadina, distruggendo ogni cosa e uccidendo chiunque capiti loro a tiro. Edgar sarà costretto a partire con la sua famiglia per ricominciare tutto da capo nel piccolo e desolato villaggio di Dreng's Ferry. Dall'altra parte della Manica, in terra normanna, la giovane contessa Ragna, indipendente e fiera, si innamora perdutamente del nobile inglese Wilwulf e decide impulsivamente di sposarlo e seguirlo nella sua terra, contro il parere di suo padre, il conte Hubert di Cherbourg. Si accorgerà presto che lo stile di vita al quale era abituata in Normandia è ben diverso da quello degli inglesi, la cui società arretrata vive sotto continue minacce di violenza e dove Ragna si ritroverà al centro di una brutale lotta per il potere. In questo contesto, il sogno di Aldred, un monaco colto e idealista, di trasformare la sua umile abbazia in un centro di erudizione e insegnamento entra in aperto conflitto con le mire di Wynstan, un vescovo abile e spietato pronto a tutto pur di aumentare le sue ricchezze e il suo potere. Le vite di questi quattro personaggi si intersecano, in un succedersi di continui colpi di scena, negli anni più bui e turbolenti del Medioevo che termina dove I pilastri della terra hanno inizio.

A trusted anesthesiologist, Dr. Roxanne Roth, is healing from the loss of her fiancé by consuming her time with work. It doesn’t hurt that her new love interest, Dr. Justin Kirkland, spends almost as much time at the hospital as she does. Entranced in the throes and complications of new love, Roxanne looks forward to work every day. Her time at the hospital would almost be cathartic if not for Dr. D. K. Webb, a neurosurgeon, who is quickly amassing a pile of complaints - and bodies. Despite trying to avoid Webb, Roxanne finds herself working alongside the doctor during a routine, low-risk surgery. Fueled by cocaine and ego, Webb intentionally sabotages the case, leading to the patient dying on the operating table. Roxanne’s tenuous grip on recovery is shattered with her patient’s death, quickly replaced by anger and a drive for justice. Now Roxanne will do anything to protect her patients from the killer on the other side of the sterile surgical field - before he can silence her as well. In this gripping, sinister medical thriller, Dr. Shira Shiloah will leave listeners wondering about the potential evil lurking behind every surgical mask.

Cuando encuentra un periódico descubre que es el 29 de enero de 1958, y la noticia del día es el tercer intento de lanzar el Explorer, el primer satélite espacial estadounidense. Si el lanzamiento resulta fallido una vez más, la URSS dominará la carrera espacial en el futuro inmediato. Luke se pone en marcha para averiguar su identidad, y comprende que su difícil situación tiene mucho que ver con las relaciones que trabó años atrás en la Universidad de Harvard, donde formó parte de un grupo de dos hombres y dos mujeres, unidos sentimentalmente entre sí pero situados sin saberlo en bandos opuestos del teatro político de la guerra fría. Las relaciones de amor y odio entre los cuatro protagonistas durante sus años de juventud determinarán sus decisiones y acciones en un duelo a vida o muerte, mientras la cuenta atrás en Cabo Cañaveral ya ha empezado. Los mejores thrillers para escuchar. Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.
