Ken Follet is one of the best British writers of novels of suspense and historical. He was born in Cardiff, Wales and lived there until his family moved to London when he was ten years old.
In 1967 Follet London joined in the University College where he studied philosophy. His interest for the statements began one evening when it started writing them, his first success was, La isla de las tormentas, that him made be very famous.
In addition, all novels have had very much success and have been adapted in some occasions to the cinema.
All his works were of espionage and suspense, also his works are reported in countries as Iran and Afghanistan and epochs as the First World War.
Ken Follet has written many statements, some of them are:
-The man of Saint Petersburg
- The wings of the eagle
- The key is in Rebeca
- The props of the Earth
- Double game
- In the mouth of the dragoon
And his last best seller that are A world without end and The fall of the giants.
In my opinion, one of the best works is The props of the earth, in which it transports us to the Middle Ages, to a world of kings, ladies, magicians, gentlemen, castles and walled cities. The love and the death are very present in this work, which treats of the construction of a Gothic cathedral. The history begins with the public hanging of a innocent person and finishes with the humiliation of a king. Really this work, it constitutes an exceptional image of an epoch of violent passions.
