My dad go told me of Ken Follet while i'm here in Germany. He has a best seller called The Pillars of the Earth.

It is based in a fictional town of Kingsbridge during the civil war in the 1100's. It shows amazing and indepth ideas about the life of Englands middle and lower class.

The sequal, World Without End, is based 200 years later during the 100 year war. It is also based in Kingsbridge and goes into detail about the battle of Crecy.

There is another in the series which I havent read yet. The Pillars of the Earth has already been made into a TV mini series. Sadly, i've only seen the last few episode and they were in German. I haven't found any info as to whether it will be screened in Australia or even be released.

I have enjoyed them very much and hope others will too.
