This is without exception one of the best books I have read in a long time. The other is Follet's Pillars of the Earth. Both books are filled with interesting historical details and engaging characters to both love and hate.
Ken Follett does it again! This is a fantastic continuation of the world in and around Kingsbridge. A saga you don't want to end! I'm definitely hooked on Follett as well as the narrator, John Lee.
I would suggest this as a MUST to anyone who enjoyed Pillars of the Earth! A long, but enjoyable listening experience!
Like mysteries, not much in to SciFi, hate vampire books. Like most all years of history.
Follett seldom disappoints and he hasn't here. One of my all-time favorites was Pillars of the Earth. World Without End takes up the story but you needn't have read Pillars to thoroughly enjoy this one. It is long but very enjoyable.
A wonderful sequel to "Pillars of the Earth". Well narrated with great characters. You won't want to put it down!
This is a very long audio book but I found myself eagerly awaiting the next segment. It's similar to Pillars with characters, etc. At the end I was wondering what happened? What was the point, or moral of the book? Was it simply persistence pays? Maybe ther is no moral, maybe it's just an interesting story with well developed characters. I'd love to ask the author.
I started reading eight years ago. I like medical, legal, and historical fiction. Biographies are sometimes interesting too.
This book is one of the best of historical fiction that I have ever read. Pillars of the Earth also meets this standard.
The author makes it easy to "get into" the minds and feelings of the characters, and I found myself having reactions to their life situations. For example, when an injustice is being done to one character, I became very angry.
I could hardly wait for my reading times to arrive and I was sad to come to the end of the book.
