What Whit's Reading

I've finally finished it!
I've finally finished the encyclopedia! (not really but it's about the same weight, let me tell ya)
I read it's prequel, Pillars of the Earth, a couple of years ago, and when I saw this one out trugging, I knew I had to buy it. But as some of you already know, it stood collecting dust on my shelves due to my lack of time to read it. 

Seriously, I loved every second of the book. Ken Follett has a way of taking 4 completely different and seemingly random characters and weaving their lives together to span for the next 50 years with ease. And always to please the reader with what I call karma justice, it had me flipping page after page during my lunch breaks for the past two weeks. 

If you love anything about history or historical fiction, definitely purchase this book. You don't even have to have read Pillars of the Earth to read this one, but I would certainly recommend it as well.
