jo w. (womojong) The Pillars of the Earth was made into an 8(?) part TV adaption recently and it follows the book almost exactly. You might want to check that out :)

Gina | 33 comments Oh wow really?! You know, I saw a different copy of the book and they had character pictures; I was so interested in what they looked like and if they matched the picture in my head. Now i know where that came from!!! Thanks! I will totally check it out :)

Gina | 33 comments 5. The Lost Symbol sooo it was ok. I started a different book during because i was so bored, but it was at parts entertaining. Its got great historical facts which wowed me. I would liketo give 2.5 stars but ill go 3 because I bought the illustrated edition on my nook (only $5!) And the pics add a little something which Brown seems to be lacking in his descriptions.....maybe I just couldn't follow???
