World Without End (Ken Follett)

So this book should count as at least three reads. Really. It's the sequel to Pillars of the Earth which I read two years ago during a weeklong vacation. Couldn't put down the first one and the same was true for this one, which was set 200 years after the first book and spans a generation and a half.

I love these books, for the sheer scope and plot. The dialogue and writing is not that tight - Follett normally (or at least used to) write thrillers and the language is pretty much what you'd expect from them. However, I wonder if his background in that genre is what makes these books a compelling read.

Whatever it is, I recommend them. A!
