    There are tales of Middle-earth from times long before The Lord of the Rings. The story told in this book is set in the great country that lay beyond the Grey Havens in the West: lands where Treebeard once walked, but which were drowned in the great cataclysm that ended the First Age of the World.

    "Not very engaging"
    Overall

    Sorry, this is a hard listen. I did not like the narration which made it hard for me to enjoy the book.

    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.

    Laura says: "Repetitive, but still enjoyable"
    "Another Great job"
    Overall

    I just finished the book. Took a couple of weeks of on and off reading, but very much worth the effort. I liked the book, the character development was great. The book was filled with twists and turns, something was always happening. As I was reading this book, I thought this would have been a great mini series, there were plenty of plots to cover many episodes. I would like to have my son read the book but the level of "adult reading" was pretty high. I ENJOYED THE READ! Thanks.

    Like most people left behind on an over-populated Earth, police detective Elijah Baley has little love for either the arrogant Spacers or their robotic companions. But when a prominent Spacer is murdered under mysterious circumstances, Baley is ordered to the Outer Worlds to help track down the killer. Then he learns that he has been assigned a partner: R. Daneel Olivaw. Worse, the R stands for "robot" - and his positronic partner is made in the image and likeness of the murder victim!

    "Great memories"
    Overall

    Back in my youth, I useto lock myself in my room to complete an Asimov book over a lazy weekend. The Caves of Steel brings back great memories. I love being able to revisit the stories. I drive a lot and being able to make my drives more enjoyable with this book is AWESOME! I am an avid pod cast listener, TWIT network and friends, and I am conflicted with having to make a choice between keeping up with my podcasts or listening to my books. Its good to have choices.

    Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy are returning to boarding school when they are summoned from the dreary train station (by Susan's own magic horn) to return to the land of Narnia, the land where they had ruled as kings and queens and where their help is desperately needed.

    "Wonderful reading with my daughter"
    Overall

    My daughter wanted to go see the Prince Caspian movie so I made a deal with her, I told her if she read the book I would take her. She never read a book this big, she was only 9 years old. So I bought her the book and I downloaded the audible book. Our agreement was to read the book together, so every day when I picked her up from school I played the book in the car while she read along. This allowed us to discuss the book and develop her comprehension. The book was great. The innocence of a child's imagination and their ability to believe in the amazing was awesome. The narration was some of the best I have heard. Great Book. Strongly recommend it!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    "Wonderful way to spend time in Las Vegas"
    Overall

    This book was great. I recently had to drive to Las Vegas for a business trip. It was one of those trips where I was spending the entire week doing work, attending a conference and meeting with vendors. Every one thought I was going to spend the week in the casinos gambling away, but every free moment I had I was listening to Pillars. I drove in from LA and from the time I got in the car the book hooked me. I was addicted to the story. I felt like I got to know the characters. The description of life during this period of time was awesome. I felt like I lived part of history.
