World Without End is a good book, a worthy follow-up to Pillars of the Earth. But as I found myself only one third of the way through the unabridged 45 hours, it occurred to me to use one of my accumulated monthly credits on the abridged version. Aside from finding Richard E. Grant a much more entertaining narrator--almost like listening to a radio play--I found the story much less squirm-worthy, with more left to the imagination (not a problem, from my AARP-eligible perspective.) In the process of finding my spot in the abridged version, I was able to listen to several chapters in both versions, and found that while I didn't get as deep into each side plot, the main story was there, and moved along well. I'll be doing more abridged books from now on.

Very different from Ken Follet's previous books-it is a wonderful read. He develops the characters well and keeps you interested until the end-and you don't want it to end.
