I’ve just found out that “Winter (A Berlin Family 1899 – 1945)” by Len Deighton is being released as an audiobook in February 2016.

I’m currently reading the book and it is the best of the books related to his character of Bernard Samson and the “Game, Set and Match” and “Hook, Line and Sinker” trilogies.  There is something rich and rewarding about the story but I will now stop and wait.

I am a little concerned about how this is going to turn out.  This story is on a bigger scale than the other Samson books, spanning nearly half a century and featuring many characters.  I wonder if it would over-stretch a single narrator.  I have been pleased with the narrator of the Samson books but the other Deighton audiobook of this scope – Bomber – suffered from a narrator who spoke…too…slowly and could not cope with the number of characters.  Maybe a cast of narrators would be better, but this is unlikely.

I’ll keep my fingers crossed.  In the meantime there is Spy Sinker – the last book in the “Hook, Line and Sinker” trilogy.
