A spellbinding epic tale of ambition, anarchy, and absolute power set against the sprawling medieval canvas of 12th-century England, this is Ken Follett's historical masterpiece.

"Follett is a master." (The Washington Post)
"A historical novel of gripping readability, authentic atmosphere and detail and memorable characterization." (Publishers Weekly)
Excellent book! Engaging characters that bring you into the story. Although lengthy the narrative flowed well and I had a hard time stopping the story...much to my family's chagrin.
It made me want to learn more about St. Thomas... it was absolutely riveting, the bad guys powerfully bad, and the good guys inspirational. A truly excellent performance on the part of the reader, and a work of genius on the part of the writer.
I work hard and as a break I really love a great audio book. I thoroughly enjoyed a lot of Ken Follet and Diana Gabaldon and am always looking for a new great book.
I loved it so much I did not want it to end. I learned so much about the era of the story and I enjoyed the readers voice so much that I really felt removed from my world and in another world.
Excellent job. Bravo!
Loved the characters, loved the renesaince period setting. Well written, very well narrated ~ a little slow to start, but hang in there, it gets better and better ~
This is a spectacular story, rich in historic detail and well developed characters. This is a book for anyone interested architecture, the medieval period, or heroic characters with a sense of humor. Don't pass this one up!
