    In the past... On a blisteringly hot August afternoon in Crystal Palace, once home to the tragically destroyed Great Exhibition, a solitary 13-year-old boy meets his next-door neighbor, a recently widowed young teacher hoping to make a new start in the tight-knit South London community. Drawn together by loneliness, the unlikely pair forms a deep connection that ends in a shattering act of betrayal. In the present... On a cold January morning in London, Detective Inspector Gemma James is back on the job....

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

    Story
    (4546)

    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.

    Tim says: "Brilliant Sequel"
    "stiil going strong."

    Where does Winter of the World rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of my favorites. I also listed to the first 2. This one is just as riveting. The author makesone feel that you r living thru that time.


    What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The reader is such an important part of the story. I have stopped listening to stories when the persons voice is strident or too much of an accent.


    Who was the most memorable character of Winter of the World and why?

    Daisy. She is so feisty and I felt she changed the most. For the better!

  • A World Undone: The Story of the Great War, 1914 to 1918

    • UNABRIDGED (27 hrs and 58 mins)
    • By G. J. Meyer

    Story
    (599)

    The First World War is one of history’s greatest tragedies. In this remarkable and intimate account, author G. J. Meyer draws on exhaustive research to bring to life the story of how the Great War reduced Europe’s mightiest empires to rubble, killed 20 million people, and cracked the foundations of the world we live in today. World War I is unique in the number of questions about it that remain unsettled. After more than 90 years, scholars remain divided on these questions, and it seems likely that they always will.

    Andrew Pilecki says: "Excellent Overview of the "Overshadowed" War"
    "very enlightening"

    Would you consider the audio edition of A World Undone to be better than the print version?

    I would. Because I would read too fast and miss names and places. Plus glad to know how to pronounce names and places.


    What other book might you compare A World Undone to and why?

    The Coldest War. Because it also gave a great depth of information including how personalities impact history.


    What about Robin Sachs’s performance did you like?

    He did a great job. Easily understsndablr


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The numbers of men and women killed due to shortsightedness. Neither side seemed to care as long ad they had more men to send in. Apparently Haige couldn't learn from his mistakes. The bravery of the men going toward certain death.
