    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 listen to Winter of the World again? Why?

    yes, I would because it has a great story and it teaches us several points of view from the actors in the WW2


    Which character – as performed by John Lee – was your favorite?

    Lloyd Williams


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

    In 1948, in occupied Berlin, when the USSR decided to ban transit from the American-English part of occupied Berlin, in order to suppress what they called "Bribes" and this discourage what they also called Secessionist Berliners. To continue with the aid to help Germans recover their prosperity ASAP, the US-Brittish started delivering aid by airfreight, including coal, milk and other goods at great expense for almost a year, until the Soviets reopened the roads...

  • War and Peace

    Often called the greatest novel ever written, War and Peace is at once an epic of the Napoleonic wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Tolstoy's genius is clearly seen in the multitude of characters in this massive chronicle, all of them fully realized and equally memorable.

    What did you love best about War and Peace?

    I bought this more than a 3 years ago and have not been able to complete the story because of the narrator effeminate accent... Arrrghhh!

    The end is coming. Logen Ninefingers might only have one more fight in him but it’s going to be a big one. Battle rages across the North, the King of the Northmen still stands firm and there’s only one man who can stop him. His oldest friend and his oldest enemy. It’s time for the Bloody-Nine to come home. With too many masters and too little time, Superior Glokta is fighting a different kind of war. A secret struggle in which no-one is safe and no-one can be trusted.

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

    No ferry tale heroes with pristine behavior, no totally bad villains, but characters with virtues and flaws, where the good ones are flawed and the bad ones are not bad at all but just the other side. We find coward heroes, fool wisemen, good harted villains, etc.

    The Last Battle has started. The seals on the Dark One’s prison are crumbling. The Pattern itself is unraveling, and the armies of the Shadow have begun to boil out of the Blight. The sun has begun to set upon the Third Age. Perrin Aybara is now hunted by specters from his past: Whitecloaks, a slayer of wolves, and the responsibilities of leadership. All the while, an unseen foe is slowly pulling a noose tight around his neck....

    Overall

    I am a fan of this saga since it started several years ago. The first book, the eye of the world was very very good and the great hunt (second book) was excellent. The saga grabbed me there and then but sadly as the saga continued the story became more and more filled with trivialities and less with exciting parts. This book however is as good as the first two, retaking the fast pace in several parts of the story and finally resolving issues that were left out or forgotten without reason. I surely hope that the next one is as good as this or better. I strongly recomend this book.
