30 gifts for 30 days of November - Day 16

Here is the sixteenth of thirty Better Than a Poke in the Eye recommended gifts for the book lover in your life even if that book lover is YOU!

Today's recommendation is Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett.

An epic tale of ambition, anarchy and absolute power set against the sprawling medieval canvas of twelfth-century England. Mason Tom Builder dreams of the day that he can use his talents to create and build a cathedral like no other.

This is a fascinating insight into the process of one man's vision to build an incredible cathedral while having to deal with the near starvation of his fellow villagers. It is well worth a read if you fancy some historical drama.
