by Ken Follett.

i should begin by saying that I loved Pillars of the Earth (the prequel, though both books can be read independently from each other). I was around 14 when I read it, it was the first real grown-up book I read in English, and also one of the first to have explicit sex scenes in it.

Smut + poor understanding of the story = one of the best books I can remember reading

So, when I saw the sequel on the bookstore shelf it was an whirlwind romance - just long enough to get past the cash register and we were in bed together. And in the bath. And on the bog, but you probably don't need to know all the details.

I'm... not so enthusiastic now that I've read it. Spoilers )

That said, I devoured the book from cover to cover. Without being literature, or even the bestest book evah!!1! for sex-crazed teenagers, it's an engaging read. I'd recommend it.
