Rating out of 5: 3.5
Pair with: The Pillars of the Earth and World Without End by Ken Follett
Brief thoughts on Follett’s Kingsbridge duology:
These are two of my favourite historical novels that I have ever read, particularly Pillars of the Earth. It’s superbly written and so detailed in its world-building that it becomes almost cinematic. Individually I rate Pillars at a 5 and World at a 4, which puts the duology overall at a 4.5 out of 5.
