Every fan of Ken Follett will want to read this. It is a continuation of what was his best work "Pillars of the Earth" This is better!
I tried to read the book, daunting at 1000+ pages. Listening to Audible's recording made it a pleasure.
I was completely taken by the 2nd round story of KingsBridge. The narrator did a wonderful job in reading the story. I hope there will be a third installment. Ken Follett has another masterpiece of a story here...Once I got past the first chapter I used up every available minute listeing...
This tale transports the reader to a period we often seem to think of as "simpler" -- Yet I dare anyone of us to survive even as a lord... let alone the peasant we would probably be!
The life skills woven into the story of families we came to recognise in "Pillars" - is tragic, funny, and always enjoyable.
The genius of Ken Follett is a gift to all who value a great tale. Beware - to those of you who have the usual daily obligations of life in the 21st century - this story compels the reader or listener to forgo said obligations for the irresistible temptation of learning the outcome of whatever conflict is currently in play in this truly absorbing epic tale. On whatever level you choose to partake of the pleasures presented at this banquet of literary delicacies you will be satiated. Again, genius!
an engaging sequel to Pillars of the Earth. The narrator is amazing- you feel like you are there with the characters back in the 1300s.
