  • Winter of the World: The Century Trilogy, Book 2

    Story
    (3542)

    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. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion.

    Jimmy says: "Epic, Remarkable, Easy & Enjoyable!"
    "Great book-classic Ken Follet. Would recommend."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Good sequel. History we know, told differently.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Winter of the World?

    When the 3 focal young men see the truth, and barbaric conduct, of the Nazis and the communists and are shocked into reality, each from their own naive beliefs.


    Have you listened to any of John Lee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    John Lee does a great job of luring you into the book and keeping you there..


    Any additional comments?

    I read the Pilars of the Earth set, and now this set of trilogies. I'm not much into history but have enjoyed his take on these events but creating families whose lives cross from time to time, to show the real impact of life events and how it affected real life. He has brought us into and out of the two world wars by showing what was happening before and after that would have led to these happenings.When each book is ove you want the next one!

    Tom Clancy returns to Jack Ryan's early days, in an extraordinary new novel of global political drama. Ryan's first days on the job at the CIA put him into a high-stakes game, playing for the life of the Pope and the stability of the Western world.

    What made the experience of listening to Red Rabbit the most enjoyable?

    Although there were some slow spots, and probably a bunch of stuff that could have been left out, it was worth the listen. I like the Jack Ryan series, and the meat of this was good.


    If you’ve listened to books by Tom Clancy before, how does this one compare?

    Close, but perhaps a bit more background story into what was going on in the world.

    Three people living lives they never wanted, hiding secrets that even those closest to them would never suspect, will find that the past never truly fades away. Even as the terrible consequences of long-ago events crash together in the present and threaten to ruin lives, they will come to the startling realization that they may not want to forget the past at all.

    Robin says: "Why did I think I liked Harlan Coben novels?"

    What did you like best about Stay Close? What did you like least?

    I liked the character development.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Harlan Coben? Why or why not?

    yes - I've read others and he develops plots nicely


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    I always enjoy Scott, and sometimes do my search on what he has narrated. I particularly like his inflections and variety for each character.


    Was Stay Close worth the listening time?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    I don't like violence in a book - especially personal violence, and would not have bought the book if I knew there would be scenes where people were being tortured.

When Baxter and his owner, Mags, leave New York for Nevada, they find themselves embroiled in a real head scratcher. First, the local water-pumping station is sabotaged.
