It's wonderful - Ken Follett's masterpiece - with an engaging and dramatic story built around the building of a great cathedral. And well-drawn, intriguing characters, particularly two who are villian/hero to put it simply.How was Pillars of the Earth? I want to read that one.
I've read is several times and feel ready to read it again.
And it's been expanded into a series of three, the other two being 'World Without End' and 'Column of Fire'. I enjoyed those as well, but it was 'Pillars' that is most memorable.
