He stipulates that he is not a believer and that his ambivalence about writing this historical novel lasted for years. However, at some point in his life, he became enamoured of and obsessed with cathedrals, and visited many of them prior to putting words to paper.
The novel occurs within the context of ecclesiastical versus imperial power, as well as during the Civil War between King Stephen and the empress Maud. This setting is similar to the situation during which the Brother Cadfael novels occur.
As mentioned in the title and the comment above, the overarching them of the book is the decades-long building of a cathedral at the Kingsbridge Priory, amidst much corruption, political manipulation, slaughter, and evil aimed at Prior Philip's Benedictine monastery. However, Follett has created a novel that possesses stories within stories within the primary theme. In it, we meet some of the most loving, if sometimes eccentric, people, along with destructive, power-seeking, and envious ecclesiastical and political figures.
Follett does not spare anyone her or his weaknesses and faults, including the most significant protagonists.
What is Kobo Super Points?
The author creates a cast of many protagonists as well as antagonists who are central to creating destructive challenges for the Prior to build the cathedral.
Church corruption is made clear, as is the use of political people and men-at-arms to effect the plans of Bigod to destroy Philip. Follett has clearly done considerable research, and blends historical persons with fictional characters very well. At times, I thought the author could begin to tie up the narrative but he elected to create yet one catastrophe after another. In the beginning of the novel, the writing could be described as simplistic, but it evened off later into a respectable and engrossing narrative.
If one is interested in Medieval history, the role of Church and State during this era, and a plethora of characters, plots, and subplots, this book is recommended.
One gets a sense of monastic living, the lives of serfs and peasants, and the overall life of clerics in this work. In addition, the age-old themes of good and evil underlie all the dynamics in the story. Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. I once read an interview by one of my favorite indie authors, Matt Schiariti, and he listed this book as his all time favorite.
But, wanting to look cool I decided to give it a try. Honestly, it didn't sound like anything I'd be interested in And then I started it, and whoa man.
I got sucked in. There's so much drama in this book. Right when you think one thing is resolved, something else pops up. Oh, and I cried. I don't even know how many times. I also lost a lot of sleep. Despite the amount of pages, I flew through this book.
This takes place over an amount of decades with lots of characters. But they're all written so well, even the ones that only show up for a couple pages, that they are all distinctive. And there are so many intertwined stories, but there wasn't any times where I was confused about what was going on. After finishing it, I brought it to my dad and told him he has to read it.
I very rarely make recommendations to my father.
This is the second book I've told him to read in the last five years. Major thing to point out - the woman in this story are ah-may-zing. Yes, it's historical and things were different back then. But they were all written as strong, independent, and Ellen was totally the most sane character in the entire book. Read an Excerpt.
Edge of Eternity. In Fall of Giants and Winter of the World, Ken Follett followed the fortunes of five international families—American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh—as they made their way through the twentieth century. Now they come to one of the most tumultuous eras of all: George Jakes, the child of a mixed-race couple, bypasses a corporate law career to join Robert F.
Dimka Dvorkin, a young aide to Nikita Khrushchev, becomes an agent both for good and for ill as the United States and the Soviet Union race to the brink of nuclear war, while his twin sister, Tanya, carves out a role that will take her from Moscow to Cuba to Prague to Warsaw—and into history.

That's what makes Winter of the World so hard to put down.
It does have deep interesting characters who develop not only through the first book that preceded this one, but through this book and the third book in the series, action and tragedy, and a wealth of historical information that has a great deal of value beyond the enjoyment of the fictional aspects of the story.
