Winter of the World...Review

Last night I finished Winter of the World by Ken Follet.  It is the second in a trilogy, the first being Fall of the Giants.  You can read my review of that book here.  Fall of the Giants ended as World War I ended and left you with several families from different parts of the world picking up the pieces of their lives. 

Winter of the World begins just as we are on the brink of the 2nd World War.  The same families are followed but now it is their children who are fighting the battles, both in war and in their personal lives.  I enjoyed this book even more than the first.  These characters seemed a little bit more well rounded and it showed how much gray there is in the world and that we don't always make the right decisions but sometimes we make the decisions that are right for us at the moment.

I am looking forward to the third book and have already purchased it but first I am reading "The Feast Nearby" by Robin Mather for our Cook the Books Club.
