    DescriptionKen Follett had long been a staple of the bestseller lists for his novels of intrigue and espionage. Then came "The Pillars of the Earth," a grand novel of epic storytelling that readers and critics quickly hailed as his crowning achievement. Now, "The Pillars of the Earth" is available for the first time to a new audience of readers, in this attractive new trade paperback edition. In 12th-century England, the building of a mighty Gothic cathedral signals the dawn of a new age. This majestic creation will bond clergy and kings, knights and peasants together in a story of toil, faith, ambition and rivalry. A sweeping tale of the turbulent middle ages, "The Pillars of the Earth" is a masterpiece from one of the world's most popular authors. "A novel of majesty and power...Will hold you, fascinate you, surround you." -- "Chicago Sun-Times" "A towering tale...There's murder, arson, treachery, torture, love, and lust...A good time can be had by all." -- "New York Daily News" "Touches all human emotions...truly a novel to get lost in." -- "Cosmopolitan"

  • Fantastic5

    Kat The Pillars of the Earth is one of my all time favourite books! This is one of those books that you can read over and over. I would recommend this book to everyone, my copy is well worn and has been passed around plenty of times and everyone agrees, its a great story. Ken Follett is really good at character definition, he writes so well its one of those books that you can not put down. by Kat

    Sharon a super read.... could not put it down!! It was even more meaningful to me as I was in England traveling at the time and gazing at all the cathedrals whose construction was described in this book. Lots of engineering problems described in it, but in a very readable way. Again, this historical fictions thriller was a great read... I would recommend it to anyone.. by Sharon

    blackjellybeanie Haven't fully read the book yet - my review is more about the actual book I purchased.....font is so tiny you need a magnifying glass to read! Would spend the extra money on getting a book with larger text so that you can ensure a happy reading experience.....which to date the tiny text is not delivering....and this coming from a person with 20/20 vision! by blackjellybeanie

  • Loved It!5

    Fanoula This is quite a long book, about, um...building a church! Monks, bishops, Earls, Kings, Love, Betrayal, Suspense, Murder, Family & architecture set in the 1300's! NOT MY USUAL READ, but absolutely loved it and could not put it down! It also has a sequel (set a few hundred yrs later) "A world with no End" same story line, with addition of nuns, more architecture and the European plague! I was absorbed by this within the 1st few pages. And highly recommened for a good read. Again.. not my usual fictional read, not into the 1300's story line, architecture (building) or monks either, but I will say it again and again... LOVED this epic tale! Hope you do too! by Fanoula
