I have read about 100 pages of The Winter of the World in this two weeks. I was very impressed by some facts in the contents that I have read and the writer's rigorous writing techniques.
It really surprised me that The Centre Party voted for the Act only for their own benefit intead of the whole Germany's, even if they were pretty sure that Hitler would become a dictator and tyrant in this way. But they just wanted to protect the position of the Church in Germany because they are a Catholic party. So they allowed a notorious man ruled Germany, slaughtered 6 million Jew and started the World War 2 that made 70 million people die,130 million people wounded. It was a catastrophe in the human history, started with the vote for the Act.
And I learned a lot from writer's writing techniques. As a historical story, it was not actually existed, but the writer made it an illation of the history during World War 2. The writer, Ken Follett, is very good at combining the actual and virtual conditions. So the whole story is not only based on history, but also has gripping plots.
Thanks to the book.
