This Sunday I'm joining Ricki Jill at Art@Home What we are reading party
Early last year I was looking for something to read that wouldn't take just a couple of days, and I certainly found it, Pillars of the Earth is a huge book written by Ken Follet with a historical story that weaves through the lives of a country village and its inhabitants, so in depth is it that this huge book becomes one of a trilogy of huge books all equally enthralling, I do read quite fast but each book took weeks to read and the journey was as educational as it was enjoyable.
This book made me appreciate that I was born in these current times, especially being female, it gave me a real insight into the lives of the women and particularly those born to the lower classes, it was so life like that you felt you where right there.
This is one of the few books I have read that I wished would never end, in fact the only good thing about the end of this one was there where 2 more books in the triology for me to read.
I would recommend this if you enjoy Historical Romances but with more history than romance.
