    I read the first of this trilogy Fall of Giants It was excellent Winter of the World continues in the same superlative fashion The narrative is quick and absorbing Through the eyes of interesting characters, you get a front row seat in the most memorable historical events that were really not that long ago The first book took me inside the world my grandparents experienced This one tr...

    My rating would have been 2 and one half stars if Goodreads had given me the option Plus I think the divergence of this review from the average of the reviews for the book is as much due to the cognitive dissonance of not really enjoying a book that you ve slogged thru 960 pages to complete, than a passionate embrace of Winter As much as I liked the first volume of Follett s 20th Century Trilogy Fall of Giants I was disappointed by this second installment The bac

    Ken Follett is a mediocre writer, but a stellar storyteller His characters are cardboard, his dialogue wooden and on the nose, his prose pedestrian and perfunctory As for his punctuation of dialogue ugh I said Please take away Follett s colon key, stat No, Ken, a colon is not interchangeable with a comma But still the pages demand to be turned.WINTER OF THE WORLD picks up right after FALL OF THE GIANTS, with the sons and daughters of the latter novel s characters fa

    Just finished my second read through I m so happy to dive back into this trilogy full of amazing characters This book makes me the most uncomfortable it deals with the most lose and offers little relief to the reader For every triumph you see another character pushed to the breaking point.

    A journey through the horrors of World War 2 through the eyes of different people from England, the USA, Russia, and of course, Germany This starts with the NSDAP taking over German politics in 1933 and ends in 1949 with the separation of Germany into West and East Reading these 1000 pages was an emotional roller coaster After loving the Fall of Giants centered around WWl I had very high expectations The historical content definitely didn t disappoint Various POVs introduced

    Congratulations, Ken Follett You ve taken the most destructive conflict this world has ever seen and turned it into a wan and tawdry soap opera Worse yet, you have cribbed unmercifully from Herman Wouk s Winds of War I m assuming Kenny is hoping that readers will be unaware that a 40 plus year old book already covered the same globe trotting style and settings that is the backbone for both novels If that was his aim, I can only envy the readers who haven t sampled Wouk s superi

    Well, I just finished this thing and I did like it, but not as much as the first installment.The best part of this novel is the history, Follett is able to distill it into bite size little nuggets and integrate the info into readable dialogue I learned a ton about China and her role in the remaking of the UN, new information on why Japan was so aggressive during the run up to Pearl Harbor, atomic bomb development in the US, and many other historical antecedents of the Cold War.Fol

    3 Since I am on hiatus from writing reviews for the month, being a beach bum , I just wanted to note that this was another typical for the author work of Historical Fiction However, maybe it is me, maybe it is the fact that I grew up in the Eastern Block and have some knowledge of the history there, the author s prejudices are even obvious and no matter how unwillingly they might creep up, they hamstring him and put his writing in a box much too small for the scope he intends I actu
