I suppose if one watches World without end without having read the book it can be saisfactory. If you are a fan of the book, though, be prepared to be disappointed, because the simplifications and changes are much worse than those in "The pillars of the Earth". Not that it is a bad show: the acting is good, the filming and costumes are great, but the plot tends to be repetitive at times, substituting the subtle steps the characters take, their evolution, with some gruesome act of vilence; every time the horrid Godwin finds an obstacle on his path, his mother Petranilla poisons, drawns or murders someone in some other gruesome way in a feat of motherly dedication, and around the third or fourth murder this tends to be slightly ridiculous. Some of the changes in the plot are understandable, even necessary considering the novel's length, others are just gratuitous. Sometimes the cuts make it difficult to understand who is who: who is Lady Philippa? If you haven't read the book you can't make it out, and anyway, why should she kill herself not to marry Ralph is a mystery.
Bigger problems arise if you are even vaguely familiar with medieval English history. I suppose the show was writtenwith American viewers in mind, and for them I suppose the intricacies of Plantagenet family ties can be even more trying than the plot of "Game of Thrones". Anyway, King Edward III may not be your ideal ruler by modern standards, as he was certainly fond of war as a way of settling international controversy, but he was a great monarch whose reforms had profound effect on his realm, and he grew very popular over his long reign. Here he looks like Disney's King John, subjugated by his mother Isabelle whom, in reality, he got rid of when he was 17.

Unlike Pillars of the Earth I approached this series having already read the book so I was slightly dissapointed to see the number of changes that were made for this adaptation but that is exactly what it was meant to be- an adaptation! I would have liked to have drawn a few more similarities between the book and the series and I was also dissapointed at the lack of a theme tune so if these had been present then I could hardly have faulted the series. The acting was of a good standard and although the King was hardly in the book, I did enjoy the inclusion of the battle scenes which made the series a bit more epic then the book.
I did not enjoy it quite as much as Pillars although I still had that slightly sad feeling when it ended so all in all I would recommend it, but I would ask people to take it for what it is (and not a complete copy of the book!).

Sequel to the first movie, Pillars of the Earth, which was based on Ken Follett's novel, set in 12th Century England, in the fictional town of Kingsbridge. In Pillars of the Earth, his epic story revolves around the building of a cathedral and follows the lives of three men over 40 years as they each deal with politics, war, romance and personal ambition. First movie: FIVE STARS. Book: SIX OUT OF 5 STARS (no, that is not a mistake).

Enter World Without End:
England is on the brink of a devastating war with France that will last over a hundred years. A terrible plague which will wipe out a third of Europe's population before it is done is spreading. Caris, a visionary young woman, struggles to rise above the suffering and oppression in order to lead her people out of the Dark Ages. With her lover Merthin, she builds a community in Kingsbridge that stands up to the church and the crown. Together, they unearth a dangerous secret and must fight to save their town from ruin, ultimately ushering in a new era of freedom, innovation and enlightenment.

The first movie is reasonable priced. Buy it if you wish. Rent the second one or forget it. Just buy the book and really enjoy it.

I watched this in its entirety in the hope it might get better, but it started poorly and ended worse. The screen adaptation could have been written by a 14-year old, it was such drivel. The pantomime villains, implausible plots and one-dimensional characters left me annoyed, not entertained. I am startled that original author Ken Follett, who consulted on this, and Tony and Ridley Scott as Executive Directors, allowed this to be released while associated with their names. Shockingly bad acting didn't make this feeble adaptation any better, with only a very few of the cast actually managing to be convincing. I couldn't wait for it to end. All in all, a severe and surprising disappointment after The Pillars of the Earth.

Enjoyed the earlier Pillars but this was far better. Great cast, blood and guts, over the top characters, great swathes of history (sort of), peasants, the great pestilence and much more. Been a real pleasure to watch and a fairly decent finale as well. Looking forward to the DVD set arriving.

I have to agree with most of the negative reviews already posted. If you have read the book and in any way engaged with the personalites and feelings of the characters watching this series will be a great disappointment. Although I understand that some leeway has to be given to enable the scope of the book to be condensed for TV, almost the entire story-line has been "butchered" for the sake of cheap melodrama, partly perhaps because each episode needed to end with some kind of dramatic climax. I watched the first 2 episodes with expectation , the next 2 with hope, the 5th and 6th with an amount of depression and by the time we had got to the farcical events of the final part I was fast forwarding in the hope that at least Caris and Merthin would be given some kind of rewarding ending in keeping with the book. Sadly, even this was to be denied the viewer. It gains an extra star due to what I thought were a gew decent performances.
On the other hand, if you haven't read the book you might enjoy it ( if you can really accept the ridiculous fiction at the end) but I would simply say - read the book!
