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.

Storytelling at its best! Ken Follett weaves a story in such a mesmerizing way. It was hard to stop listening when day to day chores had to be done. Even better is the performance of John Lee, his narrative is very engaging. Worth all 45 hours of listening.

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...of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame...and of a struggle between good and evil that will turn church against state, and brother against brother.

Wow, I was not expecting to listen to a book that had previously been recorded on cassette tape, I have such fond memories of laying on a quilt pallet at my grandmothers house listening to her talking books with her (she was blind). She would have throughly approved of this story.

I love this series. As a new quilter it's fun learning the names of quilt blocks and it inspires me to look up the blocks they Elm Creek quilters talk about. This was one of my favorite books in this series.

I have now listened to 3 in a row and I am about to buy the 4th book. I love this narrator as well. These stories remind me of being a little girl listening to talking books with my grandparents, they had to listen to them because they were blind, now I can listen to books as I quilt on my longarm machine (I'm certain Syliva Compson would not of approve of my taking the easy way out). 😊
