Winter of the World (Century Trilogy 2)

Price: 1.79

4.0 out of 5 stars Great holiday read but not as good as the first book, 5 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The story picks up with the children of the characters of the first book. I still loved the way the families are intertwined and their stories develop with the historical background. But, I didn't become quite as engaged in their stories as those of their parents. Still looking forward to the third installment when that comes out.

This is the perfect pan for making an omelette for one or a small portion of scrambled egg. Love the colour too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, second and third ones are even better, 23 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this book, although I found some of the names in it a little confusing and it took me a while to realise that the 4 main characters were not all sisters, but a mix of sisters and cousins. Having said that, I loved the descriptions of Rome and Roman life, in particular the chariot racing and the story was fast paced and compelling.

I read this book first of the three, and for me the other two books (Mistress of Rome and Empress of Rome) are a cut above. I couldn't put those two down and would love a fourth one to appear. Personally, I'd recommend reading this one first as it sets the scene for the others and some of the characters reappear later.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book, loved the characters and the three time periods covered, 16 Sep 2012

This review is from: Sashenka (Kindle Edition)
I loved this book - right from the start I found the characters interesting and I really wanted to understand what happened to them across the three eras of the book. It is a reminder of how harsh communism could be, and yet still the central character remained a believer - quite amazing I think. Highly recommended, I started this on holiday and couldn't put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good product, 22 April 2012

A fun item to make sandwiches a bit more interesting for children that like dolphins. Cuts really well with a soft filling like pate or cream cheese, more of a challenge with salami or hard cheese as edges understandably not that sharp. Fair bit of waste around the edges, but my son doesn't really eat the crusts anyway so no different to before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great map once you have worked out which way is north!, 2 May 2011

Great map, really easy to carry and use but it is quite strange that north isn't at the top but on the side. Recommended even so.

This review is from: Clan MacScotch (Paperback)
My 7 year old sons really like this series and have enjoyed this new book. They think the scottish words are very funny, although they can make it tricky for the adult reading! I don't think the story is quite as enjoyable as Clan McWee or Clan Mingin, and there isn't the "search for something" page at the end either which is a shame, but this is still a great book.
