A spellbinding epic tale of ambition, anarchy, and absolute power set against the sprawling medieval canvas of twelfth-century England, this is Ken Follett's classic historical masterpiece.
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.
'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'
'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'

Why are you offering books Apple? This will only hurt the author/publisher due to all the kids coming on here crying that it wasn't some terrible touchscreen game.
And yes, I rated 5 stars to balance the inevitable flurry of idiots who will rate it 1 star because they lack the intelligence to read.
Good for free! I'm giving 5 to help counteract the morons who can't read who will be giving one star for the lack of game for free!
Something other than a game or music for free! Well done!
