Product Description

From the Back Cover

Dans l'Angleterre du XIIe siècle ravagée par la guerre et la famine, des êtres luttent chacun à leur manière pour s'assurer le pouvoir, la gloire, la sainteté, l'amour, ou simplement de quoi survivre. Les batailles sont féroces, les hasards prodigieux, la nature cruelle. Les fresques se peignent à coups d'épée, les destins se taillent à coups de hache et les cathédrales se bâtissent à coups de miracles... et de saintes ruses. La haine règne, mais l'amour aussi, malmené constamment, blessé parfois, mais vainqueur enfin quand un Dieu, à la vérité souvent trop distrait, consent à se laisser toucher par la foi des hommes.

Abandonnant le monde de l'espionnage, Ken Follett, le maître du suspense, nous livre avec Les Piliers de la Terre une oeuvre monumentale dont l'intrigue, aux rebonds incessants, s'appuie sur un extraordinaire travail d'historien: Promené de pendaisons en meurtres, des forêts anglaises au coeur de l'Andalousie, de Tours à Saint-Denis, le lecteur se trouve irrésistiblement happé dans le tourbillon d'une superbe épopée romanesque dont il aimerait qu'elle n'ait pas de fin.

About the Author

Ken Follett is the author of numerous international bestsellers, including Jackdaws, Hornet Flight, Code to Zero, Triple, Eye of the Needle, Pillars of the Earth, and A Dangerous Fortune. He lives in England.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This masterful saga of life in twelfth century England is epic storytelling at its best. The author weaves a rich and colorful tapestry of people, places, and events surrounding the building of a magnificent cathedral in the medieval town of Kingsbridge.
Early twelfth century England was a country in a state of flux. King Henry I had died without a male heir. His daughter Maude was to be queen. The English barons, for the most part, however, refused to swear fealty to her. Maude's first cousin, Stephen of Blois, then usurped her rights and proclaimed himself king. This was to plunge England into a civil war that was to last for many, many years, turning England into a virtually lawless and tumultuous land, until Maude's son became King Henry II of England.
For most people, however, life would go on with every day concerns being paramount. The book tells the story of a number of these lives. One story is that of Tom, a master builder, whose life long dream was to build a cathedral. The lives of Tom and his family would intersect that of a humble and intelligent monk named Phillip who would become the prior at Kingsbridge Priory. The fates would intervene and provide Tom with an opportunity to pursue his dream.
Their lives would intersect with a number of other individuals, some good, some evil, who would have a great impact on their lives and their goals. Tom would lose his first wife, Agnes, by whom he already had two children, brutish Alfred and sweet Martha, due to complications sustained during the birth of another son. This son was to provide a connection between Tom and Phillip of which Phillip would long be unaware.
Tom would ultimately marry Ellen, a strong willed independent woman of the forest, perceived by many to be a witch.

Je ne croyais pas que j'aimerais cette lecture quand une amie m'a prêté le livre : construction de cathédrales, brutalité et barbarie, hypocrisie du clergé... Je n'avais pas vu la série télévisée et je suis plutôt du genre "Anne la maison aux pignons verts" ... Mais j'ai pris mon courage et le livre à deux mains et j'ai été passionnée par cette lecture dès la première page, par ses personnages dans leur environnement médiéval, leurs passions, leurs défis, leur grandeur et leur petitesse. Il est vrai qu'il y a de nombreux passages très violents qui finissent par exaspérer à la longue, mais il y a aussi de très beaux moments. Malgré que Ken Follett n'est pas croyant, il a fait preuve d'ouverture d'esprit en accordant au prieur Philip toute l'humilité, la bonté et la sagesse qu'on espère trouver chez un moine. Ça aurait été si facile d'en faire un pervers, lui aussi...
J'ai donc acheté ce livre pour l'offrir en cadeau. J'aurais donné 5 étoiles si j'avais pu trouver le livre en couverture rigide!

Bon livre intéressant, reste a savoir si l'idée qu'il donne du "moyen age" est vraiment exacte mais j'ai quand même bien aimé.

Oui, la perfection. Une chef-d'oeuvre à na pas manqué. Un film, mini-série. Fluide malgré qu'il y beaucoup de personnages. A ne pas manquer.
