England im Jahre 1327. Es ist der Tag nach Allerheiligen. In der Stadt Kingsbridge trifft sich im Schatten der Kathedrale das Volk. Vier Kinder flüchten vor dem Trubel in den nahe gelegenen Wald. Dort werden sie Zeugen eines Kampfes und eines tödlichen Geheimnisses. Merthin, ein Nachfahre von Jack Builder, dem Erbauer der Kathedrale, hat dessen Genie und rebellische Natur geerbt. Sein starker Bruder Ralph strebt den Aufstieg in die Ritterschaft an. Caris, Tochter eines Wollhändlers, hat den Traum, Arzt zu werden. Gwenda, Kind eines Taglöhners, will nur ihrer Liebe folgen. Und da ist noch Godwyn, Caris' Vetter, ein junger Mönch, der entschlossen ist, Prior von Kingsbridge zu werden. Koste es, was es wolle.

Ehrgeiz und Liebe, Stolz und Rache werden den Weg dieser Menschen bestimmen. Pest und Krieg werden ihnen das Liebste nehmen, was sie besitzen. Glück und Unglück werden sie begleiten Doch sie werden die Hoffnung niemals aufgeben. Und immer wird der Schwur sie verfolgen, den sie an jenem schicksalhaften Tage leisteten.

    " I didn't find this sequel as engrossing as it's predecessor. The jumps in time made it difficult to relate to the characters and building a tower doesn't compare to building a cathedral. I found it difficult to figure out which character I was supposed to care about. I enjoy the period but needed more character development to maintain my interest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlie Newfell | 2/18/2014

    " Excellent novel with rich period details like Pillars of the Earth. Continuity of the story told through the main characters as they live their life, and loves, in 1300's England. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Federico | 2/16/2014

    " Obra maestra, las primeras 200 paginas no son tan buenas pero luego alcanza la calidad de los pilares de la tierra. 4 estrellas "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacie | 1/29/2014

    " I loved this book. I am not sure how I missed it when it was first released. Although some of the themes are similar to Pillars, I think Follett is so talented at writing engaging historical fiction with interesting characters that I forgive him that. I couldn't put it down (even though it was 1000+ pages). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barb | 1/28/2014

    " I loved this book, sequel to "Pillars of the Earth!" Ken Follet transported me right back to 14th century England, in the village of Kingsbridge and I became a part of that community - the serfs, the monks, the nuns, the knights and kings, and even the plague. Having just read the last words, I already know I'd re-read this one someday! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay Stewart | 1/24/2014

    " A fascinating social history of a period I knew little about. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristina Herndon | 1/20/2014

    " Incredible sequel "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah Pardieck | 1/7/2014

    " I only give this two stars because it's basically the same book as Pillars of the Earth. I expect a different experience book to book so if I don't get one, I'll down-rank a sequel. Regardless, it's entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Avery | 1/1/2014

    " Great book. Really enjoyed it. Colourful characters that you grow up with. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth Ann | 12/28/2013

    " Enjoyed it as much as the first. May have taken him 18 years to finish the sequel, but it was worth waiting for! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Writerzkramp | 12/27/2013

    " A solid follow up to Pillars of The Earth. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cherrie | 12/17/2013

    " Awesome book. After reading The Pillars of the Earth, I couldn't wait to read World Without End. Ken Follett is an amazing writer and shows us that he's not locked into writing thrillers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Sullivan | 12/11/2013

    " Not as compelling as Pillars of the Earth, but nice to see what becomes of our beloved characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin Kinter | 9/30/2013

    " Another great book by Follett. Not as good as Pillars, but a great book nonetheless. I hope this is followed by a third in the series, as that will be a must read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Penra | 9/25/2013

    " It was worth waiting 18 years for this sequel. Compelling story, sucks you right back in time, "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy Magill | 9/9/2013

    " I found World Without End as intriguing as Pillars of the Earth. While it has its few flaws, overall its still a great book. I look forward to starting Fall of Giants. I've listened to the audio version and loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy Caporale | 5/14/2013

    " Great sequel - could not put this book down! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Plajer | 1/25/2013

    " Once you are locked into the characters ots tough to put down "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Reisinger | 12/24/2012

    " Ton's o twists on a grand scale. If you really liked Pillars of the Earth then you'll love finding out what happened after the Cathedral was built. The main characters were just a fabulous as POE and the antagonists even more villainous. The ending was very satisfying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marylynn | 9/10/2012

    " A great continuation of "The Pillars of The Earth" "

    " Not quite as exciting as the first book but a really good read just the same. I really like Ken Follett's writing style. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wanda | 3/1/2012

    " So-So. A flurry of action among the characters then time passes. This pattern repeated throughout the book. Too often I wanted to know how "action" played out during the "time passes" segments. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lendorm | 6/2/2010

    " Avvincente, appassionante, intrigante. Follet non delude mai "

    " Pretty much exactly the same story as Pillars of the Earth... "
