    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!"

    Story

    This is another great Follett piece that weaves the lives and times of such distant families into the tapestry of life and then connects them with such clarity. I never experienced the 'skipping' issue noted earlier. There were certainly references to sexual incidents as one reviewer pointed out, but nothing more than we all experience in life. To omit these references would dilute the work as it helps paint the whole picture. Funny how sexual references will be pointed out as distasteful, but the references to violence go without mention. Not that they are out of place in this book, I just mention as a point. The magic of Follett's work is his ability to create lives and in the times we are all familiar with. Well Done. Encore!
