Rated 2 out of 5 by dgp125 A Very Busy But Disjointed Movie
Ken Follet's book, Pillers of the Earth, had a host of characters, but it had order … chronological order. The movie has all the characters and title, but it is completely different. Having previously read the book, I found it difficult to follow and for someone unfamiliar with the characters, it would be very confusing.
The story takes place in 12th Century England in the era of the Anarchy and the wars between Stephen and his sister, Maud and the Duke of Gloustershire. A stone mason, Builder Tom is looking for and eventually finds work and builds a cathedral while all around him there is murder and intrigue.

I really enjoyed the book and when I heard it was on DVD I just had to see it! Very glad I did. Does justice to the book too! If you have read the book you will like this, even if you haven't read the book you probably will like this! there are adult scenes though so not for the kids to see!
