I spent all evening yesterday watching 8 episodes of Pillars of the Earth based on the book by Ken Follett. Wonderful historical fiction set in the twelfth century! I was mesmerized by the storyline - corruption in the church and crown, fulfillment of prophecy, murder and mayhem. I think I will be checking out the sequel to Pillars titled, World Without End
Fall of Giants is Follett's first book in the Century Trilogy, set in the twentieth century. This book does not seem to be a big hit with amazon readers/reviewers.
