I'm somewhere in the middle of Ken Follett's_The Pillars of the Earth_ right now. It's been downloaded onto my Kindle for quite a while but the size has always put me off, but I decided to make a start on it whilst on holiday this week. It's somewhat of a potboiler, with predictable plot turns and simplistic prose - but it's also an absolute page turner, and I am thoroughly hooked on Follett's characters and storytelling. Truly a transporting read, so far anyway.
For those who have read the book, how faithful is the series/is it worth watching? My local library has a copy which I intend to check out once I have finished this rather epic read.
