    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.

    Tim says: "Brilliant Sequel"
    "Not as good as Fall of Giants but still worth it"

    Story

    Just like Pillars of the Earth, the sequel to World Without End, I found the second installment to Follet's The Century Trilogy, to be lacking. The first book, Fall of the Giants, was so good!!! This one definitely faltered. BUT I love John Lee as narrator, even if his Russian characters all sound like vampires and his American characters sound vaguely like Al Capone. ANYWAY, I will still get the third book when it comes out.
    It's worth it. If you liked the first one I think you should give the second one a try. A lot happens to the families involved.
