Pillars of the Earth

AUTHOR: Ken Follett
ISBN: 0451166892
Plot Summary: The epic story of the building of a cathedral in 12th century England.
Word from the mouse: This book read rather like the fantasy I'm used to, minus any fancy creatures. There's adventure, revenge, religion, and a wide variety of protagonists. There's also rape and torture, love and hatred, joy and hope. There's also a lot of religion. Full Review
Complaints: Sexual themes, violence, religion
Moved to a new "reserve" section of the Chanute, Kans. school library (1994). The book came under fire because of some use of obscenity and graphic violence.
Solonor Says Ban It Because: For as long as it takes to read this thing, you could have built TWO cathedrals yourself. By hand. No kids need to be subjected to this.
