I so enjoyed this book I quickly purchased Ken Follett's World With End. While the book is long, the details keep it interesting and make the listening time fly by. The historical details and character development make for a great learning and enjoyable experience.
I really enjoyed very minute of the 44 hours of this audio book.
A great story. Wonderful detail. Loved the author's forward... and of course, John Lee is one of the best narrators I have listened too.
Excellent all the way.
The book is spellbinding and a must for anyone's library. The Narrator is the main reason this book is so captivating. Five stars for the Narrator who made this book come alive.
Having read the book when it was released more than 15 years ago, I wanted to refresh my fond memories of this huge novel before beginning with Ken Follett´s new epic "World Without End" and so bought the audio version here at Audible.
I was absolutely mesmerized by the fantastic performance of John Lee. The story alone stands out for its entertainment value, but the lively narration is more than superb and makes "The Pillars of the Earth" a joy to listen to. More than 40 hours of an exciting listening experience at a very fair price.
Don´t miss out on this!
I had already read this book at least twice in the past 20 years. It was a real pleasure to listen to it. Fabulous story, interesting characters. Loved it.
I started reading and thought I don't think I'm going to like this book. Boy was I wrong. I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend this book. It's one of the best books I've read in months.
The narrative is excellent. The voice of John Lee is fantastic - deep, clear, easy to follow.
The book is rather on the long side - a story is gripping, there are some lengthy bits though that tried my patience.
Overall I recommend it it was a good listening experience. Interesting plotline and well read. I would not say that it was the best book I have ever seen but come pretty close. Ideal for long solitude car voyage.
This is an unbelievably well written and read book. I "read" while working and I lost countless hours of productivity because of the intriguing story. I would skip the foreword at the begining because I almost stopped listening after going through that. If I had I would have seriously missed a jem. Masterpiece.. not hardly but very very very good, possibly great, but masterpiece I hope not I want to read more and most writers works slide downhill after they have written their "masterpiece"
An awesome 'listen'. I had trouble turning it off. Great character development and description. I could visualize the scenes. I would definitely listen/read more of this authors books.
