Review: The Pillars of the Earth

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

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Pretty interesting read. Follett's characters were surprisingly complex. Many of the protagonists felt like they were teetering on the brink of becoming major antagonists through-out the book. The intricate political maneuvering often pushing characters in directions they themselves were often surprised at.

Follett also seems to describe scenes of rape, animal torture, violence, and breast fondling with particular skill. I almost put down the book a few times to recover from a particularly gruesome passage...
