Inhaltsangabe

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.

    "Nice closure however sometimes a bit too made up"

    John Lee is not really capable of speaking good American English. After a time you'll get used to it as you get used to the characters.
    The story itself is nicely put however too much "constructed". E.g. Dimka Dworkin works as aide to Nikita Khrushchev in 1962 and is tasked with one of the most secret actions during the Cuba missile affair - being only mid-twenties of age. Then, in 1989 he is still an aide to Michail Gorbachev. No big career. But a head start. Quite strange. And all the characters are so much in the middle of each of the historic events that it is simply too obvious.
    Anyway: It's nevertheless a good entertaining story that makes history vivid and explains how and why things had been decided as they were in their proper time.
    In short: History you can touch.
