My Book Reviews
World Without End
By Ken Follett
Unlike Pillars of the Earth, this novel took some time to pull me into it, however once there, I didn’t want to leave. This is late medieval historical fiction at its best. The author encompasses every aspect of the human experience, love, romance, hate, evil, crime, and war. It gives a glimpse into the world of the peasantry versus the nobility and surfs that aspire to nobility at all costs, all in a small English Parish town. It is a very long and detailed read but a good read.
Only Time Will Tell
By Jeffrey Archer
This novel tells the story of a young boy who because of exceptional talent is awarded an education that would not have otherwise been available to him. He comes of age as the second world war looms in the near future. I love the author’s characterization. The characters range from the truly evil to the completely naive. Their personalities are familiar, which allows the reader to immediately feel empathy and become invested in the eventual outcome of some of the characters. Truly and surprising and exceptionally good read. I will certainly read the next novel in the Series.
