  1. I m a little sad to say that I could not finish reading this book something I never do I like the premise, the modified history doesn t bother me Lengthy descriptions are fine because they are written engagingly But the rape scenes I get that William is a villain he s ruthless and cruel, but the loving adoration that Follett treats William s inner thoughts with is disgusting and disturbing He takes nothing but pleasure is describing the most depraved thoughts and acts with barely any understandi [...]


  2. I ordered this by accident My kids were telling me about it and I looked it up Next thing I know I received notice that I d ordered it.I tried reading it, the author is preoccupied with rape and sex I won t be finishing this read.


  3. I see how people would like this and for the most part everything is there for this to be considered a great book, but There s a continuous cycle of things are going okay let s destroy everything People pick themselves up from disaster and are going okay let s destroy everything It just gets boring because you know what s coming Anytime something is going well you know that in a few pages that the worst thing in the world is going to happen Like clockwork It s boring and I wished I hadn t persis [...]


  4. 725 pp.The Welsh author, Ken Follett, has written a tome about the building of a cathedral in the imaginary village of Kingsbridge, England, in the 1100s He stipulates that he is not a believer and that his ambivalence about writing this historical novel lasted for years However, at some point in his life, he became enamoured of and obsessed with cathedrals, and visited many of them prior to putting words to paper The novel occurs within the context of ecclesiastical versus imperial power, as we [...]


  5. Probably the best book I ve ever read, and I ve read a few see my personal library that s just the paper backs The story weaves in and out of relationships and technology as it takes you through the lives of its characters Follett writes stories of places in The Pillars of the Earth that you are easily able to visualize and whose characters seem to come to life before you Love Folletts work


  6. I was tentative about getting this book for over a year because I suspected it would be the book morons read to feel intelligent and that was re enforced by the Oprah Book Club endorsement Against better judgment, I bought it used And It s everything I figured it would be This is basically like if Dan Brown wrote a big grown up book I love the idea The execution is juvenile The language is boorish, predictable and redundant.All the characters have the same voice There is no depth or personality [...]


  7. I read the blurb of this book and thought it wasn t for me, and so I reluctantly started to read this mammoth historical fiction as a favour to my mother who was unwavering in her insistence that I would love it All I can say is that I was wrong and she was right This book read like a film movie in my head It was absolutely nothing like I had expected and was all absorbing from start to finish An easy to read epic classic.An astounding five star read from start to finish.


  8. Firstly, the book is over long, at over 1000 pages The author keeps introducing and plot elements which one wonders how they contribute, it could have ended nicely several times earlier Its wordy and verbose, and the narrative is actually predictable and cliched.It reminded me of a pantomime sometimes, with the baddies constantly against the goodies , one could almost imagine booing at certain passages.The sex scenes are poorly written to be honest, and quite cringe worthy at times The first sce [...]
