Reseña: The Pillars of the Earth is a historical novel by Ken Follett. This bestseller deals with the building of a cathedral in a town in England during the 12th century.
I did not know what to expect when I started reading this novel; now I believe it is by far Follett’s best story. The characters are very real and the depiction of medieval England is wonderful. One of the most fascinating elements is the way Follett explains how the styles of cathedrals developed and how cathedrals were constructed in the Middle Ages. Besides this scenario, deep feelings fulfil the ingredients to prepare this fantastic book: determination, jealousy, pride, bravery and personal ambitions and are the main themes moving characters.
If you start reading The Pillars of the Earth be prepared not to do anything else until you turn the last page.

Valoración: 5/5
