I read this book when it first came out 14 or so years ago and loved it. When I heard the sequel had been published I decided to read it again and talked my book group into reading it as well. I'm enjoying it but am wondering why I had it on my "top 5 all time books". I don't think I'd put it there this time around. I do find myself wondering what possessed Follett to come up with the building of a cathedral in the 1100s in England as a plot for a 1000 page epic. Gives me a new found respect for authors who have such great imaginations.
