    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Overall

    Normally I don't really read anything involving organised religion. However, My friend insisted that I read this book. I am so glad that I listened to her. This is the best book that I have ever read. Follett uses such vivid imagery when describing everything, that I feel as if I am walking down the road with Tom Builder and his starving family. He keeps you guessing just long enough so that you can not put the book down untill you've found out what the scheme is. I found myself wishing that I could reach into the book and help the protagonists, and hurt the antagonist myself. I recomend this book to anyone who enjoys immersing oneself in a book so completely, that you think about it all day untill you can get back to reading it. You find yourself trying to come up with solutions to the problems facing the characters. This book is a must read!!! It's completely immersive, you may just feel the rumbling of the ground as the horses gallop by!!!
