    Story
    (38)

    Two families, who would otherwise never have come together, meet by chance at the Baltimore airport: the Donaldsons, a very American couple, and the Yazdans, Maryam's fully assimilated son and his attractive Iranian wife. Each couple is awaiting the arrival of an adopted infant daughter from Korea. After the instant babies from distant Asia are delivered, Bitsy Donaldson impulsively invites the Yazdans to celebrate.

    Overall

    As a long time Tyler fan, I approach with enthusiasm every work her pen produces. In agreement with other reviewers, this one was a let down. I kept listening in hope, but it never grabbed me. The usual engaging chuckles and sparks of humorous genious her writings provide just weren't there for me this time. There were a few moments when I recognized the style of the writer I've grown to enjoy and respect, but on the whole, I felt "let down" and wishing I had used my credit on something else.

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

    Overall

    If you didn't read Pillars of the Earth, then you will enjoy this book. If you read Pillars, forget this one. It's the same story, same character types, same ecclesial conflicts, etc. And, this one is indeed a "story without end." It goes on and on and on and on and on......just when you think it's finally winding down, the author introduces a new twist. I finished listening to the end, but was relieved when I came to the final chapter. I prefer books that leave me wanting more. For a reader of Pillars, this one will wear you out!
