This is another excellent book.
While "World without end" stands on it's own, it contains references to the earlier "Pillars of the Earth".
Highly recommended book.
I loved getting lost in this world. An amazing read. Could not put it down. Listened to it on the treadmill, in the car, in bed. So consuming I lost touch with current events for a week!
A great listen with intricate political intrigue and more reversals of fortune than any modern day soap opera. It's strength is an accounting of the lives of the ordinary people of that era. Unlike the masterful Pillars of the Earth, however, I was glad when we were done.
I did not think that Pillars could be matched, but Ken Follet was a master at weaving an incredible story while bringing historical behaviors to light.
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!
