Review: The Pillars of the Earth


The Pillars of the Earth
The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett

My rating: 1 of 5 stars



I read exactly 100 pages of this book and that is ALL I will give it. Although several people have recommended it to me, and usually Oprah's picks are at least decent reads, the writing is awful.

"Soul-mate," "hot body," etc. I'm all for good sex in a book, but make it believable? And sexy?

Overall, the writing is clumsy and the characters stock, boring, and quite forgettable. If you were swept off your feet by The Davinci Code and that sort of pop-culture rubbish, you'll probably like it.
