About this deal

Kovos dėl valdžios tarp didikų ir šventikų, uždrausti meilės ryšiai, planuotos santuokos, žiaurus elgesys kovose ar su silpnesniais, kurio aprašymų Follet tikrai negailėjo. Pillars' remains the high water mark of this series -- none of the others has been quite so dense with historical veracity, and perhaps that's actually a mark in favor of the other books for some readers who aren't as fond of said density as I am.

Ken Follet is a true talent, and The Evening and the Morning was an addictive, engrossing, epic experience, that I have no hesitation in recommending. Subsequently, he worked for a small London publishing house, Everest Books, eventually becoming Deputy Managing Director. While rape and sexual slavery occur in the narrative, I didn't note as many instances of him describing female characters by the shape of their bodies.It has that pastoral, everyday life feel that I came to love so much in The Pillars of the Earth and World Without End. He eventually became a builder, a work that grew out of the boatbuilding knowledge his father had provided.

Set at the end of the Dark Ages, the story explores the lives of three key characters and how their interactions bring a community together over a period of time.This isn't a book for the faint hearted as it depicts many acts of sexual violence, rape, brutality and torture and I have to admit I found it hard going in places.
