    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

    Great read. As good as the first, can't wait until next installment. The story intertwines well to paint a good picture of historic events. John Lee does a great job narrating. I really enjoy the flow of Ken Follett writing. You will not be disappointed.

    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....

    Story

    I am so glad I made this selection. Ken Follett is now one of my favorite authors. I love his flow in his writing. This is a great story that is told in a brilliant way and John Lee is to be commended on his narration. I would greatly encourage you not to overlook this book thinking that it is about cathedarls and monks or even religion. It is about life and its strugles and it triumphs. It is about persisting in the face of opposition and finding a way to press forward when the wind has been knocked out of you. This is a great book! However, I must warn you it can lead to a lack of sleep it is hard to stop once you began.

    All is not well in Margrave, Georgia. The sleepy, forgotten town hasn't seen a crime in decades, but within the span of three days it witnesses events that leave everyone stunned. An unidentified man is found beaten and shot to death on a lonely country road.

    Story

    I really enjoyed Lee Child and Killing Floor. I thought that Jack Reacher was a very good character and looking forward to reading more about his exploits. I read several reviews before making my purchase and am very pleased to have used a credit on this selection. Some of the reviews, rightly point out that some of the story line comes across a little unbelivable, but it does not detract from the book or story line. Dick Hill did a great job in his narration. If you like an action pack thiller with several turns and twist you will not be disappionted with this read. I only wish that Audible would get the other books of these series. They have alot just not some of the older ones.

    Just days before a massive exhibition opens at the popular New York Museum of Natural History, visitors are being savagely murdered in the museum's dark hallways and secret rooms. Autopsies indicate that the killer cannot be human. But the museum's directors plan to go ahead with a big bash to celebrate the new exhibition, in spite of the murders. Museum researcher Margo Green must find out who - or what - is doing the killing.
