    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 did you like best about Winter of the World? What did you like least?

    The history refresher was good, but the story told was a bit dull. Fall of Giants and Pillars of the Earth are better books than this.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Uneventful


    Do you think Winter of the World needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I am looking forward to the next one.


    Any additional comments?

    Granted the period the story takes place is one of the darkest in world history, and it is hard to spin a "positive" story with that offset. It is still a good listen.

    What did you like best about Power Questions? What did you like least?

    The authors cover many very good and important questions, that one tends to forget asking if not reminded. Great compilation.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Andrew Sobel and Jerold Panas again?

    Possible. Normally, I prefer audio books where the authors record themselves, but here I am not so sure...


    What aspect of Andrew Sobel and Jerold Panas ’s performance would you have changed?

    Fewer religious references would be preferable.


    Did Power Questions inspire you to do anything?

    Absolutely. I will ask more questions that will open up the conversation, and hope to get more inspiring meetings, conversation and general dialogue.


    Any additional comments?

    A little more science and research references would help credibility, and tie in better with other popular authors on similar topics.
