Open iTunes to Buy
The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame...and of a struggle between good and evil that will turn church against state, and brother against brother. A spellbinding epic tale of ambition, anarchy, and absolute power set against the sprawling medieval canvas of 12th-century England, this is Ken Follett's historical masterpiece.
This audiobook lacks severel chapters
If I had not seen the mini series, I would probably not have looked the lacking of severel chapters up in my danish tranlation of this book. As you can se it is estimated to 10 hours which wondered me because book this size usually tend to be estimated to 14 - 16 ours. This audiobook contains 2*4 chapters and the book is 15 chapters at least. I could cry withj fury because now I have to sit at compare so I can find the missing at least 7 chapters. I know for a fact that chapter 8 is missing all but the first 7 - 8 words. And the chapter were Jack and Elena comes to frace to Jacks fathers family is not in this version either. If you want the hole book dont by this version.
