Absolutely! Anyone who is interested in early 12th century England with history, drama and great characters should love this.
Improvising certain characters voices, ex.: French men with French accents.
Alianna. Strong and independent will for a girl in medieval times who tries to survive when in dire circumstances.
I just achieved App Master!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
WOW!! I've seen the series on Starz first and I thought hay not bad!! So I've read about ten Follett books and John Lee as the narrator and love them. I've always saved Pillars because I know the story,mistake!!! This is one of my favorite books so far I couldn't put it down and hated when it ended... The book story is better and different than the series. The only thing I can say is you must read this book. I found a treasure I've had for a year and never took them time to listen!! That's when you know you have a great book. After you finish this book go straight to World Without End it's great too Ken picks up 100 years after Pillars ended!!!!
I listen to my audiobooks while walking. I was so excited to hear the next pages of Follett's book that I went walking more than ever.
I don't listen to books again if I know what is going to happen. A big part of my interest for the book was the suspense in each page.
All the combat scenes: very well described.
Very near the top!
Fall of Giants, based on Ken Follett's character description and development.
No particular favorites. All were fascinating!
Yes, it is such a compelling story of humanity told in a very artistic and riveting way.
The vocals of Jon Lee.
Jack and the fire that brought the cathedral down.
I've actually read the book many times and he sounded just like the characters in my head.
Jack and his mother. What a creative pair.
People who like misery.
Nothing. He was excellent. I enjoyed him more than the story.
Overall the story was well presented, but I was glad it was over. There was too much turmoil and heartache. This story was more depressing than any of the End-of-The-World stories I have read. It was painful to listen to. I would have stopped sooner, but I was already invested into the story. I will pass on Book 2. Again, I am glad this torture is over.
The real characters and wonderful narration made this book worth listening too.
Eliena was an inspiring character with her strength and real compassion.
I would love to tell you my favorite scene, but I don't want to give the story away.
I admit to stopping listening to this book several times over in favor of other books, but I kept returning to it. The last ten hours are so I had to sit and listen every moment I could.
Great page turner.
Pillars of the Earth takes you through two generations of people and is very historically correct. It is almost like stepping back into time and watching these people live.
Each of the characters are so well developed and you get so evolved with each of them it is hard to pick just one favorite but I guess my one favorite pick would be Jack's mothers.
Lady Adalainna would be the most memorable and another favorite, for her strength of character.
This is a very long book but worth the time, I have listened to it twice now and am sure I willl to it again.
The Pillars of the Earth is one of my family's favorite books! It is a sweeping historical fictional account that provides one some insight into the difficulties of life in old England. The extremely well-narrated book flies by.
