9780143142386: The Pillars of the Earth

Ken Follett had long been a staple of the bestseller lists for his novels of intrigue and espionage. Then came "The Pillars of the Earth," a grand novel of epic storytelling that readers and critics quickly hailed as his crowning achievement. Now, "The Pillars of the Earth" is available for the first time to a new audience of readers, in this attractive new trade paperback edition. In 12th-century England, the building of a mighty Gothic cathedral signals the dawn of a new age. This majestic creation will bond clergy and kings, knights and peasants together in a story of toil, faith, ambition and rivalry. A sweeping tale of the turbulent middle ages, "The Pillars of the Earth" is a masterpiece from one of the world's most popular authors. "A novel of majesty and power...Will hold you, fascinate you, surround you." -- "Chicago Sun-Times" "A towering tale...There's murder, arson, treachery, torture, love, and lust...A good time can be had by all." -- "New York Daily News" "Touches all human emotions...truly a novel to get lost in." -- "Cosmopolitan"

Product Description:

Set in the turbulent times of 12th century England where 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 backdrop, filled with intrigue and treachery, Ken Follett 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 come 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.

'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

Review:

"A novel of majesty and power." -- Chicago Sun-Times
