Follett again proved through this book that he is a master of characterizations, which is one of my best compliments for a book. Combined with the historical fiction aspect of this book, there’s no wonder I enjoyed it so much. In the beginning, however, I had a harder time with this book. I think it was because I too often found myself wondering why these people were in Kingsbridge, the city that was also the setting of the book’s predecessor, Pillars of the Earth. Again, I had become so knowledgeable of that book’s characters that I found it hard to move on. This book, while oftentimes somewhat predictable due to its similarities to the earlier book, had a great storyline and wonderful characters. I was a little disappointed with the ending, as I think there were a lot of loose ends that were tied up way too quickly and therefore didn’t seem to match the writing of the rest of the book. However, I don’t think this detracted enough from the book to lower my recommendation. I’m looking forward to another sequel!
