Book Review - "The Pillars of the Earth"

"The Pillars of the Earth" by Ken Follett
My grade: A

This really is one colossal novel. Taking place in the 12th Century, the action revolves around the building of a cathedral in England, although it isn't necessarily about that. More poignant (at least, for me) were the details of the uncivilized and unstructured ways of life, the mindsets of the people and the peak into a world that is so unfamiliar to our own. Those with an interest in history will really appreciate this book! It is very well-written and is highly recommended.
