I will avoid comparison to Pillars of the Earth other than to say it's not as compelling. On its own merits: a good piece of historical fiction, and as it is centuries later than the earlier two books, it works fine as a standalone.
Pamela is on page 466 of 928 of A Column of Fire: About halfway through. I don't seem to care as much about the characters in this book as I did those in Pillars or World Without End.

Pamela and 26 other people liked Joe's review of The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O.:
The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. by Neal Stephenson
"This is the most fun I've had reading a Neal Stephenson novel since SNOWCRASH. Co-author Nicole Galland brings a nice light touch to the proceedings so that it doesn't delve too much into technobabble. Witches, time-travel, and governmental bureau..." Read more of this review »
Hunger by Roxane Gay

Sara Gran
“People think love is, you know, this spiritual thing,” the lama said. “This feeling. But that’s not my thing. In my book, love is a physical act. Love is not ethereal. Love is sticking by someone when they’re in the nuthouse. Love is when you keep calling someone even when they don’t call you back. Love is dirty and solid. Love is, you know, earth and shit and blood and hair.”
Sara Gran, Claire DeWitt and the Bohemian Highway

Nick Hornby
“The plain state of being human is dramatic enough for anyone; you don't need to be a heroin addict or a performance poet to experience extremity. You just have to love someone.”
Nick Hornby, How to Be Good

Bill Nye
“Everyone you will ever meet knows something you don't.”
Bill Nye

Oscar Wilde
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde

Anthony Trollope
“A small daily task, if it be really daily, will beat the labours of a spasmodic Hercules.”
