From the opening paragraph to the end I could not wait to hear the next installment. I have enjoyed many of Follett's tales and this one did not disappoint. The prose was rich and descriptive. I felt that I knew the characters, some of them seemed like my friends. The reader did it justice in tempo and in tone. I enjoyed every minute.
I must admit I was not sure if a book of this size would keep me listening through it all, but I was very impressed. Like Pillers of the Earth I wanted to hear more and learn of all the events that took place for each person in this book. It mirrored the first book a bit but the lives of these new characters still brought new life to the book.
This was a wonderful book, well written and very well read. The reader can make or break an audiobook, and John Lee does a fantastic job.
I thought that the author could not surpass the first book, but I was wrong. This one is even better. Great job!
First audio book I ever listened to, and it was a great experience.
the narrator was very good (I'm french and needed someone not to hard to comprehend at first), Ken Follet at his best for the story.
I don't normally write reviews, but World Without End is absolutely the best book I have ever read/listened to. Ken Follet's ability to recite details is amazing, and how he intertwines the lives of the main characters as they grow from children to adults keeps you at the end of your seat. Many times I tried to visualize how a particular thread was going to evolve, and was wrong every time. He is the master of story telling. I couldn't put it down and recommend it to everyone.
as usual, the sequel does not live up to the first. while interesting, i find wwe to be contrived and predictable. it's great to go to sleep to!
I loved this book. While it took me about an hour to become totally hooked, from then on I could hardly stop listening. The narrator was so good I could see each character as he changed voices. Caris and Merthyn are such lovable characters you want to know them better and better. The ending was perfect!
