    Ken Follet: The Evening and the Morning

    Anyone tried The Evening and the Morning, billed as a prequel to Pillars of the Earth? I'm tempted to, but wasn't so keen on the sequels to the original - seemed to be a case of diminishing returns. I'm also put off by the fear of the obligatory rape scene just to show how villainous a villain...

    Pillars of the Earth

    Are there any fans of Ken Follett's, Pillars of the Earth out there. He has just published a sequel set two hundred years later around the time of the Black Death. What I loved about the Pillars was that it had one of the most nastiest bad guys I ever came across in HF.

    World Without End

    World without End is the sequal to one of my favorite books "The Pillars of the Earth" - Ken Follett. It is due to be released in October 2007 and I can understand Follett's trepidation in writing a sequel. Pillars is a massive book not only in size but as a brilliant novel. Apparently...

    The Pillars of the Earth

    I just wanted to start a thread based on the book Pillars of the Earth. I am hoping others have read this book I am currently reading. I find it most interesting and hard to put down. It seems a very in depth, well researched, and well written historical fiction. I have particularly come to find...
