Pillars of the Earth

It seems like weeks ago that I mentioned the book, "Pillars of the Earth" that I've been reading. I said then that I felt like it was going to be an exceptional book. Well, the jury is in and I can say without a doubt that it is a REALLY good book.
It's about life in England back in the 1100's and the theme revolves around the building of a Cathedral by a very determined Monk. The story has adventure, sex, violence and the inevitable struggle between good and evil. On top of all that, it ends well.
It's hard to imagine how Ken Follet managed to weave all the stories together into a cohesive storyline, but he did masterfully.
I highly recommend this book - but be forewarned, unless you are a really fast reader, it will take a while to complete.
