So, I'm reading Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. Technically it's premature to write a review since I'm only about 1/3 of the way through it, but it is SO GOOD. People, if you have not yet bought this book I implore you to make haste to your nearest Barnes & Noble and get a copy now!! I've been totally absorbed in it ever since I picked it up. It's epic. I love novels about medieval times - even though the richest people back then lived short, brutish existences, I still romanticize castles and knights and princesses and love a good yarn about them. This one is set in the 12th century and follows a master builder on his quest to build a glorious cathedral. Murder, intrigue, romance, mystery, politics - this book has it all!
Of course, I already mentioned how much I love Oprah, and how I read and do everything she tells me to, and I heard about this book on her show. At first I though, Adam would really like this book, so I told my mom to get it for him for Christmas. I swiped his copy when I left Hawaii!
Alchemy highly recommends this one!
