This is the follow up to Ken Follett's 1989's historical book 'Pillars of the Earth' one of the best books I've ever played on audio. I was so hooked on these books when I finished 'World Without End' I wanted to go back and start all over again...

By Ken Follett
ISBN: 9780333908426


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.

World Without End is the sequel to The Pillars of the Earth. However, it doesn’t matter which you read first. The second book is set in the same town, Kingsbridge, but takes place two hundred years later, and features the descendants of the original characters.

If you live in the U.K and would like to buy this book click on the blue book title above and you will be taken to the Waterstone's website.
