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.Ken Follett's masterful epic "The Pillars of the Earth" enchanted millions of readers with its compelling drama of war, passion and family conflict set around the building of a cathedral. Now "World Without End" takes the readers back to medieval Kingsbridge two centuries later, as the men, women and children of the city once again grapple with the devastating sweep of historical change. 'Follett's storytelling skills keep you compulsively turning the pages to the satisfactory ending of good triumphant over evil' - "Daily Mail".

3.0 "Filary ziemi" wersja 1.5, czyli o "Świecie bez końca" Kena Folletta
Powieści Kena Folletta trudno nazwać literaturą, która zwala z nóg. Łatwiej nazwać je solidnymi pozycjami, sprawnie przygotowanymi, i choć może bohaterowie z reguły nie są aż tak dobrze przedstawionymi postaciami, jakbyśmy chcieli, to jednak lektura sprawia dużo przyjemności. Nie ma efektu “wow”, a ...

2.0 World Without End
I have read 2 books from this author and both times had trouble getting into the stories. I think he builds an interesting tale but I just cannot form a connection, much to my regret.

5.0 World Without End
Unputdownable! It took three years for Ken Follett to write the book and it does not disappoint. World Without End is the sequel to his famous Pillars of the Earth, but it is the book in its own right. Ken Follett takes you on the journey through medieval England. The story is told through the point...

Set two centuries after Pillars of the Earth, the people of Kingsbridge are at it again. The cathedral built in Pillars is in disrepair after part of the roof caved in, the bridge collapsed, and the prior is dead.

5.0 World Without End
“World Without End” by Ken Follett has been on my reading list ever since it was published (October 2007). I read Ken Follett’s earlier book, “The Pillars of the Earth," more than a decade ago and I enjoyed that book too. I got the electronic version of the book to read on my Cybook several month...
