    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.

    Story

    But still a good book nonetheless. I read Fall of Giants over a year ago so it took me a while to put all the connections back together in my mind. Early in the book, some of the sub plots were unable to hold my interest. I found myself wanting to fast forward in places to get back to the other sub plots that were more interesting and fast paced. The second half of the book was much better than the first and I gave it 4 stars because of this. It really got going and ended well. I am looking forward to the last book.
