    (4150)

    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

    The book itself is wonderful. Ken Follett is an extremely powerful storyteller. The characters are engaging and likable.
    The narrator completely lost me when his English accents started to sound Indian. German accents were at times difficult to understand as well. It was almost embarrassing.
    Overall it was a pretty good audio book. Just wish the narrator had not been so distracting.
