    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

    I am a huge fan of Ken Follet and read all of his books. I expected to be drawn in to the story like I was with Pillars of the Earth, but instead I felt the character development seemed superficial and the events of the times were more like bullet points. I would gladly have bought two books if he would have spent more time developing the characters and events. I was continuously comparing this read with Herman Wouk's Winds of War and War and Remembrance and felt like it came in a distant second place.

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    Story

    Always reliable. That's how I view John Grisham's books. I needed a book that would carry me through at least 6 hours of mindless work. I had 15 minutes to download so I picked this new release knowing it would be a sure thing. I've never been disapointed.
