« Enormous and brilliant... this mammoth tale seems to touch all human emotion – love and hate, loyalty and treachery, hope and despair. This is truly a novel to get lost in. » Cosmopolitan.
« A highly enjoyable tale... this book evokes its period brilliantly. » Sunday Times.
« A tale of human courage and perseverance. » Evening Times.
« A historical saga of such breadth and density... Follet succeeds brilliantly in combining hugeness and detail to create a novel imbued with the rawness, violence and blind faith of the era. » Sunday Express.
Set in the turbulent times of twelfth-century England when civil war, famine, religious strife and battles over royal succession tore lives and families apart, “The Pillars of the Earth” tells the story of the building of a magnificent cathedral.
Against this richly imagined backfrop, filled with intrigue and treachery, Ken Follet draws the reader irresistibly into a wonderful epic of family drama, violent conflict and unswerving ambition. From humble stonemason to imperious monarch, the dreams, labours and loves of his characters comme vividly to life. “The Pillars of the Earth” is, without doubt, a masterpiece – and has proved to be one of the most popular books of our time.
