Description

World Without End The saga that has enthralled the millions of readers of The Pillars of the Earth continues with World Without End.

On the day after Halloween, in the year 1327, four children slip away from the cathedral city of Kingsbridge. They are a thief, a bully, a boy genius and a girl who wants to be a doctor. In the forest they see two men killed.

As adults, their lives will be braided together by ambition, love, greed and revenge. They will see prosperity and famine, plague and war. One boy will travel the world but come home in the end; the other will be a powerful, corrupt nobleman. One girl will defy the might of the medieval church; the other will pursue an impossible love. And always they will live under the long shadow of the unexplained killing they witnessed on that fateful childhood day.

Ken Follett’s masterful epic The Pillars of the Earth enchanted millions of readers with its compelling drama of war, passion and family conflict set around the building of a cathedral. World Without End takes readers back to medieval Kingsbridge two centuries later, as the men, women and children of the city once again grapple with the devastating sweep of historical change.

World Without End is followed by the third of Ken Follett's Kingsbridge novels, A Column of Fire.

    A wonderful story that I never wanted to end. This and the previous book Pillars of the Earth are so well constructed that you feel you are living the tale. The best read I have had in years.

    Absolutely absorbing! Never a dull moment, every word meaningful and gripping. Every character grew into the wonderful patchwork of love, relationships, power, mystery, and intrigue. A brilliantly written book that I'm already looking forward to reading again!
  • Magnificent read from cover to cover

    If I'm honest I'm not a big reader, however both this title and pillars have enthralled me. The writer sends you back to a time where the world was simpler but still filled with danger, love, religion and death!! I've enjoyed reading this book and will miss catching up with the characters complex lives. Thank you Mr F for a brilliant tail.
  • Great read

    Another brilliant book to follow on from Pillars of the Earth. 200 hundred years later but the same personalities rule and fight over Kingsbridge but this time the Black Death deals it's deadly hand. Let's hope we seem the city in another 200 years.

    An excellent read , a great insight into life in the 12th century, written with great warmth and understanding . It left me wanting more, I could have read more and more. It is the first Ken Follet book for me and I cannot wait to read more of his work. The characters were were all so well portrayed and they leaped out of the pages and you felt that you wanted to meet them and get to know more about them. I cannot praise this novel highly enough and believe it is the best thing that I have read In quite a while. Eileen Noble

    How is it possible to immerse so deeply into a book of 1200 pages and feel dismay that their isn't any more. The book is like a pack of cards with several key figures being shuffled over several decades, with good and bad hands affecting their fate, and lives. Thank you Ken Follet, the search for your other work begins now
  • A great read

    By No time to read!!
    Was disappointed when I finished 'pillars of the earth' so bought this immediately. Didn't think it would live up its predecessor but it really did! A great story, well developed characters and an engaging insight into a bygone era. Just sad I've finished it now!
