    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.

    What would have made Winter of the World better?

    It would have been so much better if the piece that is missing (about 40 pages of the actual book) were there


    Any additional comments?

    I called Audible about this problem on October 10th and then again on the 15th, as I had received no answer. On the 15th they promised me I would get an answer within one business day. Three business days later I am still in the dark. I did get a credit as a "we are sorry" note, though. However, I would really like to be able to finish the book with the missing part reinstated.

    This 12th entry from Alexander McCall Smith’s New York Times best-selling series showcases the humanity and matchless wit that define Precious Ramotswe. While both Precious and Grace Makutsi are puzzled by prophetic dreams, life goes on at the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency. Precious finds herself investigating a case of rural jealousy, while Grace inches closer to her wedding.

    What did you like best about The Saturday Big Tent Wedding Party? What did you like least?

    The Botswana environment


    Would you recommend The Saturday Big Tent Wedding Party to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book to friends with a caveat: this is not a mistery "Agatha Christie" style. It is really simplistic and full of common sense but no big surprises, no twists nor turns to keep you on edge.


    What about Lisette Lecat’s performance did you like?

    I liked the performance because it is easy to follow the different characters


    Was The Saturday Big Tent Wedding Party worth the listening time?

    So-so
