5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece Sequel To The Pillars Of The Earth!, October 8, 2007
This review is from: World Without End (Hardcover)
The Pillars of the Earth has been one of my all-time favorite books, and so I was a little skeptical about how good its sequel could be. My concern was totally unnecessary. World Without End, which takes place in the same town of Kingsbridge almost 200 years later and has the cathedral as its backdrop, is an excellent book and I expect that in time it will also be considered to be a masterpiece. Not having read The Pillars of the Earth will not deter you in any way from enjoying World Without End, as other than the common thread mentioned above, it reads like a stand-alone. Follett packs it all in this 1,024 page book -- love, greed, pride, ambition and revenge. Do yourself a favor and be one of the first on line to get yourself a copy of this very entertaining and memorable book. But be aware that your enjoyment won't come cheap -- the retail price of World Without End is $35. I think you'll find, however, that it is worth every penny.

If one has NOT read Pillars of the Earth, I strongly recommend doing so. Not because it's necessary for the enjoyment of World Without End, but simply because it's one of the best novels ever written and to not read it would be a shame.

I'm about a 1/3 of the way through Pillars and I'm loving it! I can't wait to dive head long in a couple weeks into World Without End. And to think that I found out about this series of books/miniseries all because I wanted to watch more work on a certain actor who's in WWE. Its opened a whole new world of reading pleasure for me.
