    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.

    Jimmy says: "Epic, Remarkable, Easy & Enjoyable!"

    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book. I listened to Follet's other books narrated by John Lee and as always, he's excellent.
    The parallels between the history and politics of World War II and today show that we are doomed to repeat the same mistakes if we don't pay close attention to what's going on in the world. The craziness spouted by the Nazi party leading up to the war is the same craziness we hear now, just wearing a different shirt.
