BOOKS: PILLARS OF THE EARTH by KEN FOLLETT

ADOXIST-STAMPED BOOKS
Pillars of the Earth is a breathtaking, absorbing work. Set in the 1100s, in England, featuring monks and Earls and the rest of it. Very much reminescent of Robert Graves' I Claudius, it is a lesson in economics and history, with loads of politics.

It is being made into a movie this year, according to Wikipedia. So we all wonder which role is to be played by Derek Jacobi? On the other hand, Ken Follett's official website denies that there is any movie at all under consideration. Well, he would know, we suppose, sadly.
