The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett

At 900+ pages, this book is no lightweight. But even though it's long, it's a very fast read. I thought I might get bogged down in it, but I read it in two weeks.

It's historical fiction and takes place in the Middle Ages. It's full of bishops, lords, monks, priests, stone masons, and knights. Lots of love, betrayal, grief, and heroism as well. Note: there are some mature themes and scenes so please beware, young readers.

And there's a sequel! Which is even longer. But I'm gonna wait for a couple of weeks before I enter that world again.
