    Story
    (3895)

    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!"
    "Great Book!"

    Story
    Would you listen to Winter of the World again? Why?

    Yes, it was very interesting and well written. The story captivates you. Winter of the World brings a perspective to all of the countries during World War II. It flows nicely from the first book, Fall of Giants.


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

    Of course, I would compare it to Fall of Giants. Fall of Giants is the Prequel to Winter of the World.


    What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I really enjoy listening to books because I feel like I'm experiencing it and the different voices help with the different characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are many moments that stand out in my mind.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like reading historical books, it is a MUST READ!
