it was amazing
Read in September, 2012

Ken Follett's second book in his Century trilogy ' Winter of the
World ' is turning in to an excellent dramatisation of Eric Hobsbawm's ' The Age of Extremes '.

It has all the ingredients of ' Fall of Giants ' easy to read, absorbing, intriguing and never far from actuality of the age. I would recommend this book to anyone who is not really into History but likes a cracking story.

Claudio Lichtenthal I cannot believe that the Holocaust is hardly mentioned!

Debaparna it is mentioned partially. read what happened to Dr. Rothmann and his family. Follett was writing from the perspectives of people in the cities, and they might not have known entirely what was happening to the Jews. what they could have possibly known, is detailed on.
