A world history told through the eyes of Follett's characters. This is literature. To call it a novel doesn't do it justice.
Great story with engaging characters. I feel like I'm learning a lot about history just listening to this book. The narrators American accent is pretty funny. All the American women sound like they're from Brooklyn.
This book is long but never lags. This volume straddles WW2 from the depression to the cold war. The torch is largely past from one generation within the families to the next. This probably doesn't stand alone. You'd want to read this after the first volume.
Even though it was a little difficult to follow all of the characters from the first installment, it was a great read (listen) and fascinating!! The hours flew by. Narration was wonderful. Can't wait to get to the last installment!!
We look back on history with nostalgia, but this series makes you realize just what kinds of upheaval the world has gone through in the 20th century . It's an excellent read and I'm looking forward to the third book.
I had forgotten just how much I enjoy epic novels by Ken Follett. This was my first one on audible, but can't wait to start listening to the others I have read in the past.
