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)
This was a very good book, definitely worth the credit for it. The writing is spectacular, all the characters are enjoyable, and the reader is great at his craft.
It was truly "hard to put down". And John Lee's narration added so much that my senses were alive as I listened. I felt almost as if I were at Kingsbridge throughout all their trials and tribulations!
For my first experience with Ken Follett, I was intrigued and felt like a child again, I was hungrily anticipating the next "scene" and fascinated by his magnificent descriptive abilities, usually I stay away from fiction but I gave this a try and am ecstatic that I did.
I am a convert and now a fan.
I can not wait to delve into more of his remarkable writing.
This is wonderfull book. Could not stop listening and found my self still listening in my car while the engine already was turned off and one normally should have stepped out. Great experience,exciting, thrilling and educational at the same time. well done written and told.
I finished the book today, and I already miss the characters I feel I know so well. This book is one I will keep in my library and revisit often.
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!
