If you liked the Century Trilogy, you’ll love the “extraordinary . . . monumental masterpiece” (Booklist) that changed the course of Ken Follett’s already phenomenal career.
“Follett risks all and comes out a clear winner,” extolled Publishers Weekly on the release of The Pillars of the Earth. A departure for the bestselling thriller writer, the historical epic stunned readers and critics alike with its ambitious scope and gripping humanity. Today, it stands as a testament to Follett’s unassailable command of the written word and to his universal appeal.
The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known . . . of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect—a man divided in his soul . . . of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame . . . and of a struggle between good and evil that will turn church against state and brother against brother.
A spellbinding epic tale of ambition, anarchy, and absolute power set against the sprawling medieval canvas of twelfth-century England, this is Ken Follett’s historical masterpiece.

I did not think I would find much to like in a thick novel about construction of a medieval cathedral. I was wrong. Follett writes engaging characters, intricate stories and well-researched descriptions. ÷øà ñ÷éøä îìàä

This novel was certainly an epic, taking me just over two months to read. I had to start over a few times because I would put it down for such a long time that I could not remember what happened last ... ÷øà ñ÷éøä îìàä
