Both have tagged me for this little meme, ‘Open Book'. These were the instructions:
1. Pick up the nearest book.

It is just my luck then, that the nearest book to where I am sitting is the one she has just finished. This has turned out to be not just any book. This book is the latest book written by Ken Follett, the internationally acclaimed “World Without End.”
“World Without End,” is the sequel written 18 years later to the classic “Pillars of the Earth”. The books are English fictional history.
This one is penned in about the 14th century, that alone helps set the stage for some very exciting reading. Some of the things one can expect to find in the novel are cathedrals and monks, kings, knights, love and war, many memorable characters and who can forget the time of the great plague, which wiped out almost half the population of Europe.
This book too will become a classic, ~ it is a masterpiece.
