    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.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the first book in this series. I was excited to see this one come out, and am admittedly only half way through it now. But unless it gets much better, and fast, I am mostly bored out of my mind. The reader's voice is starting to get on my last nerve too. It's very similar to the last book in many ways, but less gripping somehow. I just don't care as much about the characters, and could do without all of the politics. I'm sorry I spent the money and am going to waste this much time listening to a book that is just so-so (because I have a thing where if I make it half way, I have to finish it no matter what). Ugh.

    When Mae Holland is hired to work for the Circle, the world's most powerful internet company, she feels she's been given the opportunity of a lifetime. The Circle, run out of a sprawling California campus, links users' personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency. As Mae tours the open-plan office spaces, the towering glass dining facilities, the cozy dorms for those who spend nights at work, she is thrilled with the company's modernity and activity.

    What would have made The Circle better?

    A different reader. A different ending. Lots of things different.


    What didn’t you like about Dion Graham’s performance?

    Not good. I wanted to turn it off right away, but pushed thru for the sake of the book. Wish I hadn't.
