2.0 out of 5 stars A Heap of Tragedy, January 7, 2013
This review is from: Ken Follett's World Without End (DVD)
I have never read this book so cannot comment on the adaptation but rather speak of this as a standalone viewing experience. The problem my husband and I had with this series is that it is 99% tragedy and misfortune with no bright spots whatsoever. Who wants to watch 8 hours of suffering? It got to the point that we were exasperated with it and began predicting what horrible event would happen next. The bad guys are so over-the-top evil that it becomes laughable. The only thing you can take away from this is that being a peasant in England during the 1300s completely sucked, and there was no joy to be had anywhere for anyone. And *everyone* in a position of power is evil beyond evil. I think reality was probably somewhere in the middle with some shades of grey. I gave it 2 stars because it was at least entertaining enough to watch to the end.
