Follett, Ken(1989)

Pillars of the Earth

This is a brilliant epic that will grab you from page 1. At first glance, itís a tale of a mason and his family in Medieval England. But, the characters introduced are so alive that their emotions: hate, love, loyalty treachery, and hope touch you across centuries. It is a departure from Follettís usual spy thrillers. However, it is still one of my favorite books.

10 years later, I cannot get this book out of my mind! Excellent! I am going to read it again.

One of the greatest books ever written. He is working on a sequel for 2007. Can't wait...
