The Pillars of the Earth

The Pillars of the Earth Ken Follett


The Pillars of the Earth (Kingsbridge #1)

#1 New York Times Bestseller

Oprah's Book Club Selection

The “extraordinary . . . monumental masterpiece” (Booklist) that changed the course of Ken Follett’s already phenomenal career. Look out for Ken's newest book, A Column of Fire, available now.

“Follett risks all and comes out a clear winner,” extolled Publishers Weekly on the release of The Pillars of the Earth. A departure for the bestselling thriller writer, the historical epic stunned readers and critics alike with its ambitious scope and gripping humanity. Today, it stands as a testament to Follett’s unassailable command of the written word and to his universal appeal.

The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known . . . of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect—a man divided in his soul . . . of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame . . . and of a struggle between good and evil that will turn church against state and brother against brother.

A spellbinding epic tale of ambition, anarchy, and absolute power set against the sprawling medieval canvas of twelfth-century England, this is Ken Follett’s historical masterpiece.

This is my favorite book ever... It's incredible... Passionate, intriguing, well writting. The style of Ken Follet is amazing, but this book is fatastic. The dayly life of England in mid age seen from this point of view is incredible, the influence of noblemen and churchmen over population. The king's play of power... Everything well demonstrated in this mantelpiece of literature. I Would like to see mor midle age books written by Ken Follet.... leia mais
