Author Ken Follett Is a Fan of the Mini-Series Adaptation of World Without End
Posted 10.31.12 by reelz
The mini-series adaptation of World Without End is airing on Reelz this month, and the epic series has a fan in author Ken Follett. The best-selling novelist told the New York Daily News that he has enjoyed the series so far.
I’m very pleased with what I’ve seen. A movie or miniseries will always be different from the book, because obviously you have to leave things out.
There are many historical details in World Without End, and according to the author, one reason that he enjoys writing historical fiction is because he loves the research. However, setting a novel in the middle ages does present some challenges in terms of fact finding. "When you go back to the 14th century, you have to imagine more," said Follett.
The action-packed Part 3 of the epic, imaginative, eight-hour series premieres tonight at 8pm, 10pm, and 12am ET.
