Quotes & Awards

  • “Readers will be captivated by the four well-drawn central characters as they prove heroic, depraved, resourceful, or mean. Fans of Follett’s previous medieval epic will be well rewarded."

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This book is a big event…Follett’s technique is to follow the lives of four individuals who have varying goals in life and, in the process, build a comprehensive tapestry of medieval English life—an especially important background thread being the horrible natural disaster of that era, the black plague. Follet has complete mastery over his material, and the result is a novel destined for the bestseller lists.”

    " Following this epic saga of Pillars of the Earth I didn't think I could stick with World without End. Completed I decided to read Fall of Giants. I amaze myself when I step outside of my comfort zone. You need a flow chart to keep track of everyone, but the building of the cathedrals initially in Pillars of the Earth is inspirational. You may scream for a Nook or Kindle or an IPAD once you open these 1000 page books. "

    " Probably more like 4.5. It was a slower start for me, but by the middle I couldn't put it down. A very good book. "
