    Story

    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.

    What made the experience of listening to Winter of the World the most enjoyable?

    The novel weaves itself and characters together so well. The narrarator has a great voice and helps you attach to the characters.


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

    It's a unique book as was the first in the series: Fall of Giants.


    Have you listened to any of John Lee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He performed Fall of Giants and he does an excellent job with both!!


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

    Karla's experiences with the Red Army are heroic and all very moving. It helps you remember that there are always good people working behind the scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    It was fascinating to think about the events around and during WWII from so many "countries/ people's" perspectives. A great novel!

    After 12 years of secret training, Atticus O’Sullivan is finally ready to bind his apprentice, Granuaile, to the earth and double the number of Druids in the world. But on the eve of the ritual, the world that thought he was dead abruptly discovers that he’s still alive, and they would much rather he return to the grave. Having no other choice, Atticus, his trusted Irish wolfhound, Oberon, and Granuaile travel to the base of Mount Olympus, where the Roman god Bacchus is anxious to take his sworn revenge - but he’ll have to get in line behind an ancient vampire, a band of dark elves, and an old god of mischief.

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The story is intriguing and the characters draw you in.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Pillars of the Earth?

    There are many memorable moments, but I think Phillip at the end when he brings the mob together and finally defeats his enemies is a great moment and really gives a picture to what brings about a martyr in society.


    Have you listened to any of John Lee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    John Lee always does an amazing job and this performance was just as great!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have loved to, but it is far too long, which is a good thing!


    Any additional comments?

    Ken Follett is an amazing story teller and John Lee does a great job of reading his books! I can't wait to listen to World Without End.

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    If you could sum up The Name of the Wind in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, Interesting, Well Written


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kvolthe- He is a good main character. He is also not perfect and admits his flaws. He is still a good hero even with the flaws, which is what you find of people in reality.
    Denna is my least favorite. I find her stupid and childish and really mean.
