I'm not much of a reading fan but I've finished Pillars of the Earth and its sequel, World Without End by Ken Follett and I am blown away. Even at over 800 pages each, these are by far the best books I have ever read and are what I would consider page turners. I looked forward to my nightly reading.
Follett's historical research and writing about the Middle Ages is remarkable.
I was about to move onto book 3, Column of Fire, but have read mixed reviews. Anyone read it yet?
Anyway I highly recommend Pillars and World Without End.
