it was amazing

What I learned from this book is how to build a Gothic cathedral.

Actually, this book reminded me of "Sarum,' and my favorite section, the building of Salisbury Cathedral. This is the first Ken Follett book I have ever read and I'm chiding self for having missed out all this time.

At 900+ pages (a little pink wine and the typing goes), this is not a "finish in one day" endeavor unless you're an Evelyn Woods graduate. However, once in, you stay engrossed. I am a student of the medievel period and this story fed my addiction. I cannot wait until I get my hands on "World Without End."
