bookshelves: did-not-finish

I've enjoyed epic tales of a place, such as Sarum: The Novel of England and The Thrall's Tale. The basic story line of The Pillars of the Earth, if it were completely extricated and rewritten by somebody else, is probably not a bad story (although you wouldn't know it from the miniseries version, which I also abandoned), but Follett is a terrible writer!!
