Book Description


See all titles by Ken Follett.

Ken Follett has 90 million readers worldwide. The Pillars of the Earth is his bestselling book of all time. Now, eighteen years after the publication of The Pillars of the Earth, Ken Follett has written the most-anticipated sequel of the year-World Without End.

In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, a sweeping epic novel set in twelfth-century England centered on the building of a cathedral and many of the hundreds of lives it affected. Critics were overwhelmed-"it will hold you, fascinate you, surround you" (Chicago Tribune)-and readers everywhere hoped for a sequel.

World Without End takes place in the same town of Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building the exquisite Gothic cathedral that was at the heart of The Pillars of the Earth. The cathedral and the priory are again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge, but this sequel stands on its own. This time the men and women of an extraordinary cast of characters find themselves at a crossroad of new ideas- about medicine, commerce, architecture, and justice. In a world where proponents of the old ways fiercely battle those with progressive minds, the intrigue and tension quickly reach a boiling point against the devastating backdrop of the greatest natural disaster ever to strike the human race-the Black Death.

Three years in the writing, and nearly eighteen years since its predecessor, World Without End
breathes new life into the epic historical novel and once again shows that Ken Follett is a masterful
author writing at the top of his craft.

4 of 5 Knock Out Punch! May 18, 2008
Reviewer: JMH from Tualatin, OR United States  
I have always considered Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett to be the greatest novel in the 2nd half of the 20th Century so when I heard that there was to be a sequel I was seriously skeptical.  How do you follow the "Best Book of All Times"?  I was pleasantly surprised.  Follett delivers a knock-out punch with this exciting new book.  His superb character development is only surpassed by his vivid portrayal of history.  I highly recommend this!
