Great book. A story that will keep you wanting to listen to "just one more chapter". Great reading also. John Lee makes it perfect by his use of accents and the perfect pitch in his voice. I just love Ken Follet and now John Lee. If you liked Pillars of the Earth this book is for you. I can't wait to get my hands on the sequels.
This is the first. I hope he does the sequels.
That's a hard one. Billy, Ethel, Maude... all of them.
John Lee is one of my favorite readers. He has a compelling voice and mimics a wide variety of accents without making it too theatrical. I have selected books based on the fact that he is the performer...and I haven't been dissappointed yet.
The characters, of which there are many, are totally real and they way their lives intertwine believable. The backdrop of WWI and the Russian revolution are so interesting, I find myself on the internet doing research on events and persons described in this book.
held my interest throughout. all characters were well woven and believable.
The reader speakes all the characters fluently and consistently. a great listen
I love history. The author and narrator did more than a splendid job. I must state that I love this book. It makes you laugh, it makes you cry and the suspense is great, although you know what is going to happen.
The author narrated history factually correct and with a human touch. I love the way the author used symbolism in his stories.
Billy and Ethel make strong characters and I like the political scenes where they were fighting for their rights. Lots to learn from it when you are a young reader.

I found this book exciting and can reccomend it.
Professor at Federal University of Uberlândia (Brazil). I love romances and thrillers. Feel free to send me e-books suggestions!
I liked so much this book! I am looking foward to listen to the others of the trilogy!
Yes, the reader uses accents which helps realize who is speaking (there are a lot of characters so very useful).
A lot of characters, The plot, etc.
I looked forward to commuting to listen to the story!
The different accents for the characters
The basis on fact and the authors creation of fictional but believable characters to explain the impact of peoples lives through WW1.
Yes, especially towards the end.
Gripping, entertaining, compelling
Pillars of the Earth & World Without End. Even though the stories and periods they take place are completely different, the way Ken Follet links and intertwines the characters is perfect, and togerher with the individual characters stories, the whole experience is thoroughly encaptulating.
John Lee's narration is simply brilliant. The many voices and accents, and the depth he brings to each character allows you to visualise the book in your mind. It makes for a complete experience. I envy his talent.
Slightly dissapointed with the end, like it was rushed to finish it, I felt that some of the individual stories could have been closed off a little more. However, I would absolutely recommend the book.
