I love Pillars of the Earth and vety much like this sequel. As usual KF produces very good entertainment with some educational background material and interesting facts.
Follett, K: A Column of Fire
Praise for the Kingsbridge novels
'A historical saga of such breadth and density . . . Follett succeeds brilliantly in combining hugeness and detail to create a novel imbued with the rawness, violence and blind faith of the era'
'A highly enjoyable tale . . . this book evokes its period brilliantly'
'Where Follett excels is in telling a yarn . . . you won't be able to put it down'
'Follett's storytelling skills keep you compulsively turning the pages to the satisfactory ending of good triumphant over evil'
'This is a huge book in every way, sweeping and yet detailed, a powerful story packed with superbly drawn characters'
'Enormous and brilliant . . . this mammoth tale seems to touch all human emotion - love and hate, loyalty and treachery, hope and despair . . . This is truly a novel to get lost in'
