Follett follows the lives of his two main characters, Meirthen and Caris, from childhood through middle-age. The book is set in early Fourteenth Century England in the town of Kingsbury and its surroundings. He (Follett) draws such wonderfully rich and colorful "word pictures" fleshing out the characters and locales so thoroughly that I found myself immersed in the story to the degree that I missed several nights of good sleep. This is a book no one short of a speed reader could say he/she read in one night. Besides, I enjoyed it so much I didn't want it to end.
I rarely give a grade of 5 stars to any book, but "World without End" definitely earns it.
While science fiction is my main genre I occasionally read other stuff. Follett's historical fiction is one of those that I read from time to time. Overall this was a great book and easy to read. It follows the patterns that seem to exist in his other books in that it follows a couple of groups of related or loosely related people as they face one challenge at the other. Sometimes it is predictable but even then it is always enjoyable. The setting and culture that the stories take place are well researched and I always feel a better appreciation for those times and places after reading one of his books. Of course Kingsbridge is a made up town it is easy to realize it could be any town in England at that time. There is now a third book in this series out. I plan on reading it at some point in the future to be sure.
