Pillars of the Earth is one of those books that I will treasure forever. I will not trade or re-sell it as a preloved book. I am going to hold on to it until the day I die. This is the masterpiece of my time, and it shall remain as such.
In the beginning, when I decided to read again, I was browsing through my Goodreads profile to check what review I had written about PILLARS OF THE EARTH and my eyes caught an announcement that Ken Follett is releasing his latest book: a prequel to PILLARS OF THE EARTH. Without intending to sound ungrateful for the literary blessing that is Ken Follett, still, how can he write a prequel after all these years with Kingsbridge series?
