I’m reminded of Follett’s Pillars of the Earth and World Without End. If you were drawn to this thread for love of history or architecture, then you would do well to read those two novels. Follett did a considerable amount of research into building techniques, monastic culture, politics, etc. A fun read.

Read them both after a trip to Bayeux ( in the Normandy region of France ). I visited the Cathedral that’s famous for its tapestry, and that Cathedral was over 1,000 years old. Could have easily spent the whole day exploring, it was THAT large and interesting. It amazes me what people were able to achieve without the benefit of modern technology!

Follet’s “Pillars of the earth” was one of the best books I ever read.

Are his other books equally as good?

I could not put it down
