    Five linked families live out their destinies as the world is shaken by tyranny and war in the mid-20th century. Berlin in 1933 is in upheaval. Eleven-year-old Carla von Ulrich struggles to understand the tensions disrupting her family as Hitler strengthens his grip on Germany. Into this turmoil step her mother’s formidable friend and former British MP, Ethel Leckwith, and her student son, Lloyd, who soon learns for himself the brutal reality of Nazism.

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

    Yes. It's a stand alone, although nice if you have read the first one. It draws you in following all the interwoven characters.


    What other book might you compare Winter of the World to and why?

    I'm not sure anything can compare to Pillars of the Earth but it is similar.


    Have you listened to any of John Lee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    John Lee always does a great job. It wouldn't be the same to listen to anyone else read a Ken Follett!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I certainly laughed and had a tear in my eye at times, but now its finished I'm missing it! Looking forward to the next instalment
