At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End takes place in the same town of Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building the exquisite Gothic cathedral that was at the heart of The Pillars of the Earth. The cathedral and the priory are again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.
Three years in the writing, World Without End once again shows that Ken Follett is a masterful author writing at the top of his craft.
Listen to The Pillars of the Earth.

"Fans of Follett's previous medieval epic will be well rewarded." (Publishers Weekly)
Very different from Ken Follet's previous books-it is a wonderful read. He develops the characters well and keeps you interested until the end-and you don't want it to end.
Follett demonstrates his distinct ability to take you back to a time where you have the enjoyment of living the period as if you are a part of it.
I have not read the first book but I watched the series on TV and found it very interesting so I downloaded the unabridged version of this book to see if was as good. This book was great. Even in the unabridged version it was very detailed and kept my interest the entire time. Highly recomended!!
I found the first half of World Without End to be a little slow moving. As the second part began it became more interesting to me. After reading Pillars of the Earth, which was also by Ken Follet and in a similiar time period,I must say that the book disappointed me as I thought it would have been just as great as Pillars.
