The Pillars of the Earth

Title: The Pillars of the Earth
Author: Ken Follett
Genre: Fiction
Readability: Very good – despite the length

Ken Follett normally writes decent-but-not-divine thrillers about secret agents and stuff. Don’t hold it against him. This book is his absolute masterpiece, different from everything else he has written, and one of the most captivating fiction books I have ever read. And I am rarely this enthusiastic about books.

In essence, it is about a group of people in medieval times trying to build a church. Not your average sales pitch for a book, I know, but it is nothing short of riveting. I know many people who consider this book one of their favorites. It is long – over 1.000 pages – but don’t let that scare you. You will likely breeze through it in a few days.

Enough said. Do yourself a favor and see if you like it.
