Just like Pillars of the Earth, the sequel to World Without End, I found the second installment to Follet's The Century Trilogy, to be lacking. The first book, Fall of the Giants, was so good!!! This one definitely faltered. BUT I love John Lee as narrator, even if his Russian characters all sound like vampires and his American characters sound vaguely like Al Capone. ANYWAY, I will still get the third book when it comes out.
It's worth it. If you liked the first one I think you should give the second one a try. A lot happens to the families involved.
