.The Pillars of the Earth is a departure from author Ken Follett's typical suspense thriller. However, like his spy novels and fast-paced adventure tales, The Pillars of the Earth is meticulously researched and offers an insider's glimpse at the richly detailed world that his characters inhabit. The world he presents in this saga-length novel is England during the twelfth century. Don't be put off by the book's length of it's subject matter. It is fascinating, and the pages fly by.

The Pillars of the Earth - Ken Follett it is 1000 pages long so I saved it for a holiday. I wish I had not seen the tv programme because I knew the main plot. I want to read the sequel.

I've sorta-kinda held off on this book because I so seldom enjoy the stories that get the biggest hype, but I DID like the movie ever so much. I'm sure I'll read it sometime this year.

The Kite Runner

The Kite Runner. Set in Kabul and beginning just prior to the Russian invasion, The Kite Runner tells a heartbreaking story about the relationship between two boyhood friends who are as close as brothers, but just happen to be master and servant.

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry - literally putting one foot in front of the other - one step at a time - tansforming your life - as simple and as complicated as that!
