Review: Winter of the World (The Century Trilogy #2)

User Review  - Rachelfm - Goodreads

I'd say this is four stars for plot and two stars for the character development, dialogue and general texture of the book. This is a huge book, nearly cubic, and Follett weaves together so many ... Read full review

User Review  - Theresa - Goodreads

The second book in the Century Trilogy, this book takes place right before, during, and after World War II. I'm not really sure why I find these books so compelling. The writing is very mediocre. For ... Read full review

User Review  - Kate Hewitt - Goodreads

Ken Follett always writes a very readable story, but his writing style is so juvenile that I found it hard going at times. There is literally NO showing, all telling in this book, and at a level a ... Read full review

User Review  - Gordon - Goodreads

I was quite disappointed in the second book of the Century Trilogy. I am a Follett fan, having read all his books. This book is little more than a soap opera, set mostly in Europe during WWII. Fall of ... Read full review

User Review  - Carl - Goodreads

The 20th century is the most dramatic and violent period in the history of the human race. We killed more people in the 20th century than in any previous century, in the trenches of World War I, in ... Read full review
