The “extraordinary . . . monumental masterpiece” (Booklist) that changed the course of Ken Follett’s already phenomenal career. Look out for Ken's newest book, A Column of Fire, available now.
“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.

Very long, but very well written book. It's a saga about the people involved in the building of a cathedral. I loved it at first, but by the end it became a bit predictable (not in a terrible way but might have been better if the book was a bit shorter). Definitely would recommend it. ÷øà ñ÷éøä îìàä

A huge, riveting novel featuring a series of star-crossed lovers, an unimaginably good monk, and some unspeakably evil power brokers set in 12 century England. Ostensibly the novel follows the trials ... ÷øà ñ÷éøä îìàä
