Home Ken Follett The Pillars of the Earth. The pillars of the earth, . Part of Kingsbridge series by Ken Follett. Out of the corner of his eye, Tom saw the squire drop his hand to the hilt of his sword. He knew he should give up now, and humble himself, but there was an obstinate knot of anger in his belly, and as scared as he was he could not bring himself to release the bridle. Pay us first, then kill me," he said recklessly. You may hang for it, or you may not; but you'll die sooner or later, and then I will be in heaven and you will be in hell. The sneer froze on William's face and he paled.

I once read an interview by one of my favorite indie authors, Matt Schiariti, and he listed this book as his all time favorite. I bought this book later on this year, but put off reading it because IT IS OVER 1000 PAGES - OH MAI GAWD!

But, wanting to look cool I decided to give it a try. Honestly, it didn't sound like anything I'd be interested in... so I didn't have any expectations.

And then I started it, and whoa man. I got sucked in.

There's so much drama in this book. Right when you think one thing is resolved, something else pops up. Oh, and I cried. I don't even know how many times. I also lost a lot of sleep.

Despite the amount of pages, I flew through this book.

This takes place over an amount of decades with lots of characters. But they're all written so well, even the ones that only show up for a couple pages, that they are all distinctive. And there are so many intertwined stories, but there wasn't any times where I was confused about what was going on.

After finishing it, I brought it to my dad and told him he has to read it. I very rarely make recommendations to my father. (This is the second book I've told him to read in the last five years.)

Major thing to point out - the woman in this story are ah-may-zing. Yes, it's historical and things were different back then. But they were all written as strong, independent, and Ellen was totally the most sane character in the entire book. My only complaint is that there wasn't enough focus on her.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes drama and has any interest on 12th century England.

The Welsh author, Ken Follett, has written a tome about the building of a cathedral in the imaginary village of Kingsbridge, England, in the 1100s. He stipulates that he is not a believer and that his ambivalence about writing this historical novel lasted for years. However, at some point in his life, he became enamoured of and obsessed with cathedrals, and visited many of them prior to putting words to paper. The novel occurs within the context of ecclesiastical versus imperial power, as well as during the Civil War between King Stephen and the empress Maud. This setting is similar to the situation during which the Brother Cadfael novels occur.

As mentioned in the title and the comment above, the overarching them of the book is the decades-long building of a cathedral at the Kingsbridge Priory, amidst much corruption, political manipulation, slaughter, and evil aimed at Prior Philip's Benedictine monastery. However, Follett has created a novel that possesses stories within stories within the primary theme. In it, we meet some of the most loving, if sometimes eccentric, people, along with destructive, power-seeking, and envious ecclesiastical and political figures. Follett does not spare anyone her or his weaknesses and faults, including the most significant protagonists. Nor does he cease to decry the sheer brutality of Earl William and Bishop Waleran Bigod, the primate of Kingsbridge.

The author creates a cast of many protagonists as well as antagonists who are central to creating destructive challenges for the Prior to build the cathedral. Church corruption is made clear, as is the use of political people and men-at-arms to effect the plans of Bigod to destroy Philip. Follett has clearly done considerable research, and blends historical persons with fictional characters very well.

At times, I thought the author could begin to tie up the narrative but he elected to create yet one catastrophe after another. In the beginning of the novel, the writing could be described as simplistic, but it evened off later into a respectable and engrossing narrative. If one is interested in Medieval history, the role of Church and State during this era, and a plethora of characters, plots, and subplots, this book is recommended. One gets a sense of monastic living, the lives of serfs and peasants, and the overall life of clerics in this work. In addition, the age-old themes of good and evil underlie all the dynamics in the story.

"The Pillars of the Earth" takes the reader on a ground level tour of the early Middle Ages... not only the history of the era, but the lives of the ordinary people, their suffering and difficult lives. Aliena, the heroine, suffers the loss of her family and a horrible trauma as a young woman. Her resolves allows her to rise from this shattered life, not once, but several times, each time struck down once more,. seemingly thwarted at every turn. She is an incredibly courageous woman whose perseverance sees her through to the end, and to see the beginning of the end of the savagery from petty rulers and clerics that marked the era.

Jack, her lover and eventual husband, finds his mark as a builder, and the reader sees the evolution of the first magnificent cathedrals of the era, the change of style that enabled these magnificent buildings to soar toward unprecedented heights. We also see how these buildings were constructed by a largely illiterate workforce, using only the most rudimentary tools.

Philip, the prior, faces the contradictions of a Church that attempts to reconcile a life of faith and humility with the temptations of worldly power and wealth. After the murder of Thomas a Becket, he leads a continent-wide rebellion against the unchecked power of the royalty. The book pulls no punches on both the good and evil done by the clerical establishment.

Our modern ideas of liberty and human rights were born in this grimy, brutal era, and I highly recommend this book to all.
