I have read “Pillars of the Earth” a long time ago and have counted this as one of my all-time faves. An epic masterpiece by Ken Follet, this book is a total departure from his usual spy and action thrillers. Instead, this is a hauntingly beautiful historical novel that shows Follet’s skill and maturity in his writing.
Incidentally, “Pillars of the Earth” has been adapted into a board game! I learned it from this post by FootNotes. This book is that good!
My Mark : Excellent
This month, I’ll be reviewing its sequel “World Without End“. I hope it’s as good as this one.
