A sweeping historical novel, book 2 of the Century Trilogy. This book covers the build-up to World War II and the immediate aftermath. The novel continues to follow the 5 inter-related families--American, English, German, Russian, and Welsh. I found the book to be fascinating, a real treat to read. The story is fast-pace and exciting, with great characters and terrific plot development. I liked this book much more than the first volume of the trilogy (Fall of Giants).

Chuck How far into this are you, Terri?

Terri Jacobson I started it this am and I'm on page 300 (1939). I love it!

Chuck All right! I'm glad you're enjoying it. I'm still reading it, too. I'm not in a hurry to finish since the next one won't be out for a while.

I think my favorite line in this one so far is where Lev said to Bea, ‘Now that’s what I call coarse.’ You know she had to be horrified.

Chuck Did you re-rate this?
